Fleet management is an administrative approach that allows companies to organize and coordinate work vehicles to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and comply with government regulations. Implementing an effective fleet management system will help you track each aspect of your fleet and notify you when action is necessary. Ultimately, this will aid in mitigating any problems that may arise before they become prohibitively expensive.
Fleet tracking uses a global positioning system (GPS) to track and monitor the activity of fleet vehicles and assets. The tracker will receive GPS coordinates from satellites and obtain a plethora of information. Employers will be able to follow all vehicles on one map allowing you to see real-time locations. In addition, you can view every address each vehicle made a stop at and the duration for which they were there. Should there be unsafe driving habits, you will be alerted. Amongst these alerts, you will be notified of harsh braking, speeding, overheating, potential accidents, device disconnected/reconnected, and so much more.
Why Use GPS Fleet Tracking
As a business owner, you must be able to monitor where your vehicles are located regardless of the size of your fleet. Since the software holds all the information, you will no longer have to call your employees to inquire about their location. The following are reasons why you should implement GPS fleet tracking software:
- Monitor unsafe behavior
- Manage fleet remotely
- Keep your team efficient
- You feel like you're losing control of your employees
- You want to save time and money
- Increase vehicle lifespan
Choosing The Right GPS Tracking System
As you realize the importance of a GPS tracking system for your fleet, it’s crucial you understand the number of options available to you. When evaluating a system, consider the quality of location data you will be provided with, ease of use, customer support accessibility, and the installation process. To install the tracker, you can either plug the track into the vehicle’s onboard diagnostics port or wire it in. The goal of a GPS tracking system is to allow you to spend less time worrying about your employees outside of the office and more time growing your business.
