Benefits of a GPS Real Time Fleet Tracking System
A good GPS fleet tracking system provides two huge advantages for your business: Employee accountability and a quick return on your investment. In a sentence, your GPS tracking system helps your company manage, locate, track and recover your valuable mobile assets.
Companies using GPS devices for fleet management can view all their vehicles on one web page, dispatch the nearest vehicle to their customer, and view (online) daily or monthly reports of mileage, speed and stops. A large majority of customers recognize a return on their GPS investment in less than 30-60 days.
Not exactly sure where your $300,000 piece of equipment is? Dealing with consistent complaints about late deliveries? Eliminate theft and gain peace of mind with GPS fleet tracking.
One customer installed GPS tracking units on a drivers' truck that was routinely late and discovered what was happening within a few days. The driver would speed through his route, drive 50-60 miles to go home for a couple of hours and then speed back to finish his deliveries.
Carolyn Smithburger of Wallmark Service Company shared her experience with us. "GPS fleet tracking has helped us keep a tighter reign on our employee's movements," she said. "They are much less likely to run personal errands, go home early or waste time when they know we are looking. I was even able to match trip routes to gas card purchases to ensure that our company is not paying for gas in personal vehicles."
Return on Investment
Business owners aren't going to invest in a product that doesn't save or make their business money. We've done both. Brown Bros., Inc, a Chattanooga, TN based company focused on grading, excavating, and site utilities had several pieces of heavy equipment stolen over the last few years. Brown Bros. purchased several GPS fleet tracking units to monitor the locations of their heavy equipment.
"We had a brand new CAT skid steer stolen over the weekend," Project Manager Frank Geismar said. "The skid steer was equipped with a GPS fleet tracking unit. Within minutes I was able to log on to my computer and know exactly where it was located. I called the police and the sheriff's department and gave them the exact location of where they could recover the stolen equipment. They recovered the unit along with six other pieces of stolen heavy equipment valued at over $300,000. The skid steer was back on the job site by noon."
How often are my vehicles tracked?
Your vehicle is located every 1, 2, or 5 minutes while it is in motion (Depending on your tracking service plan).
We use Google mapping for GPS fleet tracking - which includes a standard map, satellite, and hybrid (lays map over satellite image).
Can I be alerted if a driver speeds?
Yes. we support speed and geofence (boundary) alerts. If a driver exceeds a pre-set speed limit, you will receive a text message or email alert. If a driver crosses a geofence you will be alerted as well. Companies are using geofence alerts to see if a driver goes home during the day or is traveling in an area they are not supposed to be.
