GPS trackers: The smart way to plan and drive
A common task on a fleet manager’s to-do list is to ensure drivers are being efficient while conducting daily duties. Fleet managers understand better than anyone the intricacies of planning and delegating out the work load among all drivers. A great way fleet managers can streamline this activity is by having the digital aid of GPS trackers. With GPS trackers no phone calls are needed to coordinate the positioning of each driver to their next destination. Dispatching can utilize advanced routing options with GPS trackers so that drivers have a clearly planned path set before them.
Using advanced route planning is an optimization solution to finding the best route for fleets. GPS trackers with advanced route options allow you to set up pre-determined routes by placing them directly on the map. Not only is it super easy and smart for dispatching to plan out the path, but they can also program a route alert. With this function, a notification will be sent when a vehicles strays from the designated route. This isn’t just a means of keeping drivers on schedule, but also to ensure their safety as them veering from their marked path could mean something dangerous occurred. If an accident should occur you’d want to know about it right away and with GPS trackers you can.
What if dispatching decides they want to change the route? In case dispatching notices traffic conditions or construction will get in the way of a timely arrival for the driver the previously planned route can easily be changed. You can edit any route you have created at any time. If you want to delete a route you have created that can easily be done, also. If the path ahead appears to difficult to navigate solely with visual aid, the two-way communicator can be used to speak directly to the driver. With all the advanced routing options of GPS trackers, it’s inevitable that fleet managers will be able to assign tasks better. It also allows drivers to effectively complete jobs as there is no guess work as to where to travel to next.
