Cutting Fuel Costs through GPS Tracking

GPS Tracking = Saving $$$

GPS tracking is a must have for any company managing the operation of any vehicle. The cost of purchasing the service is payed back time and time by either the money the company saves with us or through additional business picked up from the additional time they now have available. The savings are through the roof in various areas of the business, but the cost from a reduction in fuel costs alone is enough to justify the addition of GPS tracking.

GPS tracking gives the company your company access to knowing more detailed information about your fleet. Many items have been wasting your money for years, so this new found knowledge is sure to be an eye opener to your accounting department.

The first way you will save money on fuel is that with GPS tracking, you will know when a vehicle is idling for an extended, unnecessary period of time. Rumor has it that stopping and restarting an engine wastes too much fuel, so leaving the vehicle running is more cost effective. This is only a rumor, and in fact is wasteful of your money. With your GPS tracker, you will have access to seeing the amount of time a vehicle is running, yet staying in one place. If you find that a driver has a habit of idling for more than a few hours a day, this matter should be brought to his or her attention.

Another cost saving feature of our GPS tracker is that your drivers are not as likely to waste your valuable time lost, or taking a time consuming route down the road. With GPS tracking, dispatchers have the ability to see the exact location of your drivers as well as the best, most direct route to his or her location. If in event a driver was lost, dispatchers can quickly help them find their way back to the route. The faster your drivers reach their locations, the faster the job is done, and the more time they have available for other jobs. This makes travel time shorter, which again, reduces fuel costs.

These two areas are only a few ways to cut costs using GPS tracking. We are confident that you will find even more unique ways that your company will save money and boost that earning potential.

GPS Tracker Hide And Seek

It’s hard to hide from a GPS Tracker

A recent Facebook status update alerted cell phone users of the map feature giving away a person’s location upon taking pictures. Individuals were appalled and terrified at the thought that someone would be able to see the exact location of their sleeping child at that moment due to the location service on the phone. The status share encouraged parents to turn off the location service feature to ensure the privacy and safety of their children. Although you may be removing the ability for your cousin’s co-worker’s creepy brother to see your children, studies have shown, you are still not completely hidden from technology.

Installed inside your phone is what’s called an “accelerometer,” which prompts your phone to switch the orientation of your keyboard when you flip it horizontally. The accelerometer contains a digital fingerprint unique only to your device giving it the ability to still be tracked. Along with the accelerometer’s fingerprint, other features within your device, like your camera, can carry a unique signal that distinguishes your device from others. While this is alarming, this shows how advanced technology is.

GPS tracking has revolutionized the world we live in. At one point in time, no one would have been able to even fathom that just by entering in a location, an electronic voice named Siri would be able to guide a us to that exact location we were looking for. GPS tracking has made life, as we know it, a whole lot easier.

GPS Tracking Serves Businesses Large And Small

GPS Tracking for any company

The size of your business does not matter. Whether you are a large corporation or a small mom and pop shop, you can benefit from GPS tracking. If you are in the market for a GPS tracking management system, make sure that you have done the appropriate research needed to make the best decision for your size of fleet. Not all GPS trackers are the same and not all product will include what your business might need. Rely on what you know is best for your company. Knowing what to look for is important so you do not end up with a system for a large fleet if you only have two trucks.

If you own a large fleet, not only will you be tracking multiple vehicles, but also their multiple moving parts that will need proactive maintenance. Customizing a system that can track and monitor these items will be most beneficial to your fleet and your bottom line. You will want to make sure your dispatcher has access to the needed tools to guide, track, and inform your drivers of weather alerts, road congestion, and maintenance alerts. With a large fleet, your dispatchers will need a streamlined process to cover all the ground involved.

For the fleet that is not large, but still significant in size, having the capability for your fleet to be tracked by multiple team members may be a feature you could benefit from. Incorporating custom dashboards that allow individuals to only have access to information that pertains to their job, would be an excellent feature.

Finally, for the small business owner, having a GPS tracker could make life simpler for you. As a small business, you more than likely have several employees who wear multiple hats. The more time spent manually tracking what could easily be done through a GPS tracker is more time away from other important tasks. This alone could make a huge impact on the way you do business.

How’s My Driving? We Already Know – Part 2

GPS Trackers Replace Bumper Stickers

So far we have established that our GPS tracker gives companies and their drivers that accountability piece vital to ensuring top performance at all times. Our suite of live GPS tracking features puts responsibility back into the hands of the drivers and their managers. Instead of having to wait for a phone call from a random traveler somewhere down the road in response to the “How’s my driving” sign on the back of your truck, management will have access to tools that enable them to pinpoint where their drivers are and how they are performing every mile on the journey. This intern maximizes profits and minimizes loss. Their choice to make wise decisions is within their control. Drivers cannot however control weather, road conditions, traffic, and construction.

Since we are a company based in the heart of Oklahoma, we are no stranger to sudden weather changes and the hazards they present to travelers. These storm systems present a threat to both your drivers and your fleet. Through GPS tracking, we have made your ability to protect your fleet a priority.

With our top of the line navigational tools and products, we place in your hands the ability to redirect your drivers from the potential hazards Mother Nature presents. You have the ability to examine an array of data-from weather patterns to road construction and traffic congestion. Our integrated weather radar, with cloud cover imagery, enables our live GPS tracking to show you what is down the road, so you’re able to make the best choices for your fleet’s security and timeliness.

“Having a Live GPS system that adds Traffic conditions which are updated every sixty seconds allows a dispatcher or resource coordinator to easily guide employees around congested areas avoiding traffic jams and excessive travel time (Duncan, 2013).”

Even in terms of planning jobs that require extended periods of dry conditions or temperature control, like setting cement or pest control applications, our enhanced weather overlay can save the need to “redo” a job, or travel time and expense of mobile teams where inevitably they must postpone and reschedule assignments.

We know the efficiency of your deliveries is essential to your business success. Weather and hazardous road conditions can mean delayed shipments, stressing your mobile employees, and cutting into your profits. Imagine the potential when you use our advanced GPS management systems to guide your drivers away from delays toward a path that’s quicker, and thus, more productive.

How’s My Driving? We Already Know – Part 1

GPS Trackers Changed The Game

Gone are the days of companies having to rely solely on the “How’s my driving?” sign to feel confident of their driver’s road performance. Thanks to our live GPS Trackers, companies have the ability to know not just a drivers etiquette on the highway, or even how safe their road mates feel: GPS tracking gives companies an entire overview of their mobile team’s efficiency level.

The technology behind the GPS tracker monitors driver’s time on the road, driving patterns, and speeds, but that’s not all. Our fleet tracking management system takes the guess work out of monitoring. In most cases the general public is not going to call to report the great things a driver is doing, and as it’s equally important to extend an ‘atta boy’ when sound decisions are made as it is to critique a mobile employee, the overview of all the  data available on the system-delivered as in-depth as a company desires-stretches far beyond what a road raged caller might bring to the table.

So if we give a company the tools to know what their drivers are doing, how does this affect their bottom line? Why is having a GPS tracker such a ‘value-add’ for all fleet companies?

We want to take time to address several of these money saving features, so we’ll start first with accountability. This piece is huge!

In a perfect world, everyone would make the best use of company resources, always exhibit their best work, and with company time ticking, would enter into a focused atmosphere free of distractions. In the world we live in though, especially away from the workplace, employees need accountability. Some individuals, intentional or not, will not wisely spend one of any companies most vital resources: time.

When an employee signs on with a company he or she is made aware of our fleet tracking management system, allowing his or her actions to be monitored at all times. If knowing that the boss is sitting in the virtual passenger’s seat isn’t a motivator, what is? And the best part: employees are empowered to show they’re doing it the right way!
