With HammerKit you create applications in a real-time visual drag and drop interface where building web services is made easy through the use of functional elements and visual components. There is no command line coding to worry about. The real-time approach allows you to work collaboratively with your clients and your team. Everything you create with HammerKit is stored in the Cloud. HammerKit runs on Amazon AWS infrastructure and has been built to scale as required. There is nothing to download or install.

Star, Ghana, Multiplant Ltd.
Description: Nsoroma ( is a company that provides a range of tracking and fleet management services in Ghana and the West African sub- region. It is a product of a relationship between 3dtracking ( and Multiplant Ghana Ltd. A few enhancements include:
- Working with proprietary maps (or generating maps) of unmapped areas, and integrating solution into our database.
- Dispatch capabilities: Garmin satellite navigation units with Ghana maps can now be integrated into our tracking system. This permits two-way communication with drivers, automatic driver ID recognition and the use of an order management system for real-time adjustment to operational directives. For instance you can send  your  driver  an  instruction  with  a  location  which  will  be  clearly  and unambiguously displayed on the navigator map and will also be recorded in the database system. This can be made to work without house numbers.
- Solution to compute and automate reports based fuel consumption averages.
- Solution to allow drivers to invoice per mileage driven.
- Tampering alert solution to discourage dishonest drivers.
- Low cost, because of no monthly subscription payments, but highly effective solution for financial companies or individuals, who would not want to track their vehicles all the time; but, if need be, immobilize and retrieve their vehicle with ease.
