GPS tracking: The power of a button click
As a fleet manager it’s your job to know what your drivers are doing. You may have a rough estimate as to where they are and what job they are completing, but keeping track of their routes for several stops in a day can be challenging. This is especially true without a tracking system. Is the old fashioned pen and paper mileage tracker or cell phone app your current method of “verification”? What if we told you that GPS tracking could do a much better job of helping to create and plan more efficient routing? Now that we have your attention, let us explain how!
As a manager of fleets aiming to be service providers, it is your job to make sure your drivers are making it to their appointments on time. Say you have one driver with 15-30 service stops scheduled for the day. Organizing those stops, manually, to maximize time, in a way that they make the most sense and don’t cost your business more money on fuel would take a lot of effort! While more stops may mean more clients on the schedule, that doesn’t mean your drivers will actually make it out to see everyone on the list if routes aren’t planned efficiently.
GPS tracking has the power of a button click, available right at the fingertips of dispatchers back at the office. Best of all, managers can see everything and so can drivers! With GPS tracking, the Advanced Routing options make it easy for dispatchers to enter in all stops or locations and generate a path that is the quickest, thus; saving your driver’s time, decreasing fuel usage and increasing the possibility of actually finishing all stops on the schedule for the day. Being able to complete work quickly means having an increased bottom line. Who doesn’t want more revenue?
