GPS tracker: Creating better business
In the first part of this series we discussed how GPS trackers can be implemented to improve routing systems and fleet management. We also explained how important it is to come through for your customers. More specifically, we pointed out the ways that GPS trackers can help you do both of these things in order to maximize your business.
Integration and employee accountability are both very vital aspects of maintaining your business, but the other ways GPS trackers can help are by offering live dispatching and cost savings. In part two of this series we will discuss the latter two ways that GPS trackers allow for better business.
1.) Live dispatching: When a customer calls with an urgent need, your business must be able to respond quickly. With the GPS tracking system being integrated with your current dispatching system, you and your dispatchers will know which of your drivers is best positioned to respond to a customer need. This will make your drivers more efficient by cutting down on delays, increasing response times and, in turn, improving customer satisfaction.
2.) Cost savings: What business owner doesn’t want to cut expenses and increase profit? Better fleet management means increased savings. GPS trackers allow for better business by giving you the ability to monitor your fleets so that you will know things like how much fuel is being consumed, when vehicle maintenance is needed, and how long drivers are spending at job sites. Being able to save money on fuel and maintenance costs make the GPS tracking system well worth the investment. Also, by saving time spent driving, your technicians may be able to make more service calls per day. By giving each of your drivers the time to respond to extra calls, this could have a tremendous impact on your bottom line.
It is clear that the benefits of monitoring your drivers could create better business practices for you, to help you be successful.
