GPS Tracking Solutions
Where are your drivers right now?
Where have they been driving throughout the day?
Did they arrive and leave jobs at the correct time?
How long have they been at a job?
Do you know the nearest vehicle to a specific address?
Are you aware of unauthorised usage of your fleet of vehicles?
Do your drivers exceed the speeding limits?
The main idea of GPS tracking is to help companies manage their fleet tracking and vehicle tracking needs and to answer the all the above questions without the need investigate each and every driver individually. There are many companies who remain unsure about adopting this concept as they feel it only benefits companies that have a large fleet of vehicles. In reality both small and large companies can benefit from vehicle tracking.
Real-time Vehicle Tracking – This allows a business to monitor where their vehicles are at any given time, it is therefore easy to spot delays and to manage delivery allocation. A taxi company, for example, will be able to efficiently allocate jobs at all times as the live tracking function will show the operator where each driver is at any given time.
Employee Management – Having a fleet management system in place will give you far more control over your employees when out on the road. GPS Tracking will make sure that employees are hitting deadlines on the road, starting and finishing jobs at the specified time and to ensure they are using the most direct route. It can also benefit the drivers too as the fleet management platform can identify if they are caught up in traffic and simply can’t make a destination on time. The system will also identify out of hours usage on the vehicles meaning that you can either charge mileage to the employee or eradicate the need for personnel to fill out private mileage forms.
Operational Management – It doesn’t matter if you have 1 or 100 vehicles, vehicle tracking allows a business to assess and evaluate how deliveries work which makes it far easier to plan routes and to allocate jobs. We all know that timely deliveries will increase customer satisfaction and getting an edge on your competitors can be priceless in today’s market. Seeing a decrease in your overall operational costs due to increased efficiency is also a possibility, managing your fuel bill and associated costs could be driven down giving you greater profitability for the year.
