Nobody said running your own fleet would be easy, but in today’s world of high technology, there is no reason to do it blind. Fleet tracking puts eyes on your vehicles every minute. Through the magic of global positioning systems, vehicle tracking is now possible. Here are a few facts about fleet tracking you may not know.
You stay up to date. You get live updates sent directly to your computer or mobile phone. This is a powerful tool for any fleet manager. You have the ability to keep all the data readily available with GPS. Every time there is a change in the fleet, the system updates you. No needs to refresh or reload a page – updates are in real-time.
It is all online. There is no need to download software or worry about installing a widget. The fleet tracking system is Internet-based. This means there is a webpage that you open to manage your fleet and do vehicle tracking. Online service is a plus when you are at home or on the road. A vehicle tracker keeps you in touch with every asset as long as you have Internet access.
You save money. Vehicle trackers tell you what route a driver takes, no more side trips or moving in pairs. This advanced system allows you to know which drivers are heavy on the gas pedal or too quick to hit the brakes. On average, fleets save 10 percent on fuel costs each year.
The installation is easier than you think. Vehicle trackers are put into place wherever the asset sits. There is no need to bring every vehicle to a service center or repair dock to have the hardware installed. It is fast and convenient with no down time.
It is just good for business. Without a happy client base, your fleet will lose value quickly. Vehicle tracking allows you to manage the fleet while it is one the road. It also lets you keep your customers informed. Having the ability to pass on critical information to customers will build up your reputation.
