GPS trackers: Resolving common fleet problems
You’ve barely made it out of Christmas mode and perhaps you have yet to even remove every decoration at the office, but that doesn’t stop the inevitable adoption of a “fresh” attitude when January rolls around. The personal list of resolutions usually consist of keeping your body healthy or staying in touch with loved ones. Deep down, these New Year’s resolutions aren’t much different than what fleet businesses want in 2016; they just take on slightly different titles such as “keeping trucks healthy” and “staying in touch with customers.” A great way to stick to these New Year’s resolutions is by using GPS trackers. In part one of this series we will talk about how GPS trackers can be used to keep your fleet trucks running at their best.
Keeping trucks healthy: The top maintenance needs for vehicles consists of regular oil changes, tire rotations, air filter changes and brake pad changes. Larger vehicles may require maintenance more often, of course. No matter what your ongoing needs are, GPS trackers can help you organize all your maintenance reminders. The system automatically calculates from the beginning mileage you input to when the next oil change will be needed and so forth. No longer will you have to rely on sticky notes, paper pads or clipboards full of listed information. The GPS tracker system can store all the data you need and send you alerts via text or email when necessary maintenance is due.
GPS trackers are great as resolving common fleet problems and helping fleets stick to their 2016 New Year’s resolutions. It’s a plan simple enough that you don’t have to risk breaking promises to yourself or your company. Installation is relatively easy, training takes little time and ongoing training is easily found streaming, online or with a quick phone call. Are you prepared to make the leap into 2016?
