GPS trackers: Aiding county officials
Hildago County officials of Rio Grande, Texas were striving to provide more accountability, to be more effective and to be safer while carrying out their daily operations. With these goals in mind the county officials discussed their options. It didn’t take long before the solution to their quarries was the implementation of GPS trackers. Local news reporters were all buzzing with the story about how the county-owned vehicles were assigned to five departments. Initially, GPS systems were installed in 70 vehicles belonging to several county offices. Of course, taxpayers were wondering how GPS trackers were going to help. The truth is, the benefits of GPS trackers are universal.
It’s no secret that there have been times when county trucks have been stolen or used inappropriately by employees. When thefts occur it costs the county even more money to replace the stolen vehicles. When employees take the county vehicles after hours for personal use that is another cost for the county that has to go towards fuel and unnecessary vehicle maintenance due to the extra mileage being driven. With GPS trackers, county officials can actually see a return on the investment and spend less of the taxpayers money.
The historical data stored by GPS trackers will allow management to keep a record of miles traveled, hours vehicles are in use, fuel usage and more. Text alerts and analytical reports can be generated from the GPS trackers so there will be no hiding what is really going on. With pinpointed details about the location of county vehicles, safety is a goal that is easier to achieve. County officials have agreed that the GPS trackers in their vehicles will help county departments be more effective and efficient.
