GPS tracking: Providing real benefits
The New Year is already upon us and for fleet business owners the start of a new year is one of the best times to reflect on the performance of their company in the past year. There is always room for improvement and it only propels you closer to your goals when you take time to develop new goals and strategies for greater success in 2016. To give your business the advance it really needs, you may want to think about enforcing a new idea such as the usage of a technology solution like GPS tracking. If you’re wondering about the true benefits you can see, we have compiled a list of 4 ways to improve your business in 2016 using GPS tracking.
1. Quick Scheduling: The ability to automatically schedule jobs and dispatch drivers in a precise manner may be impossible without GPS tracking. Using a GPS tracking solution, dispatchers are able to assign and view jobs with a few quick clicks on one, easy to read screen.
2. Better Routing: Figuring out which routes would be the most efficient routes for your drivers can be challenging, especially with multiple drivers going to various locations. With GPS tracking it makes it easy to take all locations in a driver’s itinerary and put them in an order that creates the shortest route.
3. Driving Safer: Of course, speeding and aggressive driving isn’t ideal for any fleet business. GPS tracking helps prevent a tarnished reputation as it allows you to monitor driver behaviors such as speeding, harsh braking and more. There’s not a better way to rank drivers based on their performance and provoke driving safer.
4. Fuel Monitoring: Fuel is an extremely costly operating expense for any business with vehicles in the field. At least with GPS tracking, you can have the convenience of fuel-saving features. You can set up alerts that notify you when drivers are excessively idling in their vehicles. Alerts also help to keep track of driving behaviors that increase fuel usage and keep track of fuel usage percentages in an effort to decrease the amount of fuel being used.
