Provide a list of Samsara vehicles to your Milsoft rep: the unique Samsara Vehicle ID will be used as the vehicle ID in Milsoft. (You can download your list of vehicles, including the unique Samsara Vehicle ID, under Settings > Devices > More Actions > Upload CSV > Click on "Gateways List". Column A will contain the Vehicle ID. Note that the report includes a "G" in front of the 15-digit number; this "G" should be removed, leaving the Samsara Vehicle ID that Milsoft will use for vehicle ID. If you need help getting the unique Samsara Vehicle ID, ask your Samsara rep or email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Milsoft will complete vehicle ID mapping in their software
SwingDev will enable the integration to start sharing vehicle position data with Milsoft
