GPS Fleet Tracking

Fleet operators and owners face significant challenges today with respect to visibility in how their fleet operates. GPS Fleet Tracking solutions are designed to ease some of the issues involved in operating a fleet. Customer service, safety of the vehicle and driver, utilization, and cost reduction often top the list of reasons to implement a GPS Fleet Tracking Solution.  

Efficiency, Visibility and Customer Service. Fleet operators continue to struggle with limited visibility of their drivers and critical fleet assets. GPS Fleet Tracking solutions actively improve ways to communicate with employees. Customer satisfaction often increases when business partners arrive onsite precisely at the agreed upon time and are billed for accurate time spent at the location. Demonstrating exceptional customer service instills confidence and trust resulting in a greater number of repeat customers and positive references.  

Driver and Asset Safety. GPS Fleet Tracking solutions help fleet operators monitor vehicle and equipment usage with the addition of sensor inputs and panic buttons.  Organizations can enhance their security with a GPS Fleet Tracking Solution that integrates with a 24/7/365 ULC approved monitoring center.  

Cost Reduction.  A challenging economy coupled with rising costs of fuel, labor and vehicles has eroded operating margins, putting additional pressure on fleet operators to reduce vehicle operation and maintenance costs, and improved asset utilization. The use of a GPS Fleet Tracking solution will provide visibility into which vehicles are being used and which aren’t and could be sent to auction.  Route optimization and navigation can improve efficiency; reduce mileage resulting in less wear and tear of your fleet!    

Environmental Stewardship.  Fleet operators are now actively implementing Green Fleet programs. Lowering fuel consumption and reducing carbon emissions through enforced anti-idling campaigns, fleet right-sizing, route and asset optimization, and proactive vehicle maintenance programs positively impact the environment as well as the bottom line.  

Regulatory Risk & Legal Exposure.  Laws and regulations governing hours of service, fuel purchase and idling times have created a paperwork nightmare for fleet operators, who must accurately monitor and report on fleet performance in all regulated areas to reduce risk, and avoid costly legal penalties.  

Benefits of a GPS Fleet Tracking solution go far beyond simple location monitoring. With consistent use a fleet operator can reduce labor and maintenance costs, enhance services and performance, and improve utilization.

There are so many benefits to implementing a GPS Fleet Tracking solution.  What benefits have you experienced?
