GPS tracker: Helpful for business operations
Many fleet businesses have already started using GPS tracker features such as geofencing for ultimate asset protection and equipment recovery. In part one of this series, we talked about how GPS tracker geofences can be used in those two ways, but those aren’t the only benefits of this wonderful feature. Other areas of your fleet business can take advantage of GPS tracker geofences, too. Here are another two out of four GPS tracker geofence uses for fleet businesses.
1.) Time: The word “time” is small, but it has great merit on your business. When you set a GPS tracker geofence for your job site, you will automatically know when employees are on the job site. This allows managers to monitor arrival, ongoing work and departure times. With geofence monitoring there is less likelihood of time delays and makes time sheets more accurate.
2.) Billing: With vehicle alerts, GPS tracker geofences makes customer billing easier. Who doesn’t want that? You can diminish customer disputes with geofence alerts. The alerts make it simple for managers to log time spent on and off the jobs. The data can then be used for printing off precise invoices for customers.
In their most basic sense, geofences are virtual perimeters on a map. Essentially, geofencing capability will provide fleets with alarms as well as other fleet management features when perimeters are crossed. These features will allow you to reduce liabilities, improve management and identify expected route deviations. Either creating a rectangular or polygonal shape of the area you want the geofence to monitor, you can see clearly if or when a vehicle being tracked moves into or out of that area. You can do a lot within your business by using just this one feature. Are you ready to get GPS tracker devices of your own?
