The Big Brother Eye Of Vehicle Tracking

Many companies use vehicle tracking to improve the way they do business. Vehicle tracking can tell you about the routes taken and whether or not they could be combined to cut down on outlay. This information can greatly reduce company expenditure allowing you to offer more competitive rates to your customers and so ensuring more business comes your way. Having the ability to locate your fleet twenty-four-seven is a highly effective security measure, helping to ensure the safety of the drivers and the costly cargo they carry.

If you’re looking to drive down fleet operating costs and improve your fleet productivity (so increasing revenues), then tracking your vehicles may well be a profitable step forward. Modern day systems allow for live, real time tracking, so you can locate all your vehicles around the clock using detailed satellite and hybrid maps. Real-time alerts also inform you of any unauthorised vehicle activity, such as speeding, out of hour’s usage, or visiting restricted locations. These alerts can be time-based, ensuring the privacy of employees is respected, and can be delivered via screen pop-up, email or SMS to an unlimited number of recipients.

Historical tracking allows for easy review of vehicle movements and activities; useful if you need to diffuse disputes, provide proof of service or reconcile timesheets. Modern day vehicle tracking also allows detailed reports to be generated, including history, journey, locations, speeding, working hours and summaries. This not only helps you save time but also keep a close eye on procedures and operations.

Having the option to implement a GPS vehicle tracking system means key performance can be measured to optimise asset usage. This brings many benefits to a company including a reduction in operational costs. Reducing fuel bills, vehicle maintenance charges and lower insurance premiums as well as a reduction in communication costs are all positive knock on effects. GPS technology therefore increases revenue through better productivity.

With better productivity, customer service and satisfaction is improved, as customers can be notified automatically as events occur, for example when a vehicle is approaching customers locations.
In an era where corporations are constantly looking to reduce their carbon footprint, eliminating excessive idling and fuel usage, unnecessary vehicle wear and tear and inefficient route planning, all helps make for a greener environment.

With vehicle tracking, drivers are aware they are being monitored and therefore tend to have fewer speeding tickets or accidents. Monitoring these close movements, companies are also able to uncover hidden liabilities such as fraudulent overtime claims and bad driver behaviour. Organisations are able to increase vehicle security by constantly knowing where their transportation is, ensuring the full safety of their drivers and the goods that they carry.

Vehicle tracking is a highly effective security measure. Knowing where vehicles and drivers are, particularly if they are carrying costly cargo, is a way of ensuring the drivers safety and that of the goods they are transporting and as well as being more friendly to the environment.
