Monitoring Employees In The Field

Beyond just making sure that fleets are making it to their destinations safely, managers can also monitor analytics like; whether a vehicle has been in idle for too long or if a driver has been aggressive. Leaving a company truck running isn’t only a potential theft risk, but it’s also hard on the engine. Aggressive driving is also bad for the engine, but more importantly speeding, harsh braking, and rapid lane changes are all dangerous.
Deterring Theft Of Vehicles
The larger the fleet truck, the more likely is it to be targeted by thieves for high profit. To add another layer of protection, GPS trackers allow fleet managers to set up as many safety alerts as necessary. Geofence alerts are the most commonly utilized alerts to help prevent vehicles theft. Using this feature, parameters can be set for all vehicles during after hours and if a vehicle leaves the designated area an alert with be sent out warning the appropriate person.
