What Benefits Will You Look Forward To?

Increased Productivity

With GPS tracking solutions, you will be able to receive automated reports on a daily, weekly, or monthly bases — whatever will give you the most control. If you set up bi-weekly reports and decide you want one early, you can generate a report on demand.

These generated reports will give you a variety of information that you can use to increase the performance of your fleet drivers. Data will include information about daily vehicle activity, speeding violations, violations of company driving policies, a list of vehicle start and stops, idling times, and much more.

Along with reports, you can receive alerts, which will notify you of unwanted behavior. There are various alerts that you can receive, just chose the alerts that you believe will give you the most beneficial information and will pertain the most to your business. Alerts could be triggered for speeding, idling, engine start or shut down during off-hours, unauthorized vehicle usage, or when the vehicle enters or exits specific areas.

Proof of Service

Paperwork that verifies a service was completed can be lost in the shuffle, but GPS tracking devices provide proof that a delivery or service vehicle arrived at their destination, when they arrived, and when they left. If your drivers have ever been accused of not completing a service, when in reality they did, GPS solutions make it easier to verify that the job was completed.

Most Efficient Routing

Whether you run an emergency medical dispatch or road assistance company, being able to dispatch the closest vehicle possible could have incredible, possibly life-saving benefits. With GPS tracking devices, you will know exactly where the closest vehicle is, and you will be able to tell them which route is the shortest or has less traffic. This will get drivers to their customers faster and more efficiently, improving customer service.

Fleet managers will also be able to identify when vehicles are being used for unauthorized uses or when drivers intentionally take a longer route to a job site. Having this information will help improve fuel costs, reduce vehicle mileage, and increase job productivity.
