GPS tracking: Retain the finest workers
Keeping hard working truck drivers on board is becoming a difficult task. According to the 2015 Truck Driver Shortage Analysis Report, the last 15 years has shown that the trucking industry has periodically struggled with a shortage of truck drivers. Retaining the finest workers is going to require dedication on the fleet owner’s part to show drivers that they really care. GPS tracking has plenty of features to please the best drivers and entice hard working individuals to stick around. Today, we’re going to talk about 2 ways GPS tracking technology makes being a fleet worker better.
Providing Organization: Drivers get an easier ride with GPS tracking organizing their work lives. Starting with clocking in for the day, the GPS tracking software time stamps billable hours so employees can do away with manual time sheets. Throughout the day management and drivers can both obtain shared data, instantly. For example, invoices, inventory lists, customer contact information, and more can be uploaded and seen by users. Dispatching can also perform their jobs much quicker by reducing or eliminating all cell phone calls thanks to the two-way communication feature.
Protecting Reputation: No one likes work drama. Employees tend to remain employees longer when they don’t have to deal with all the fuss. With that being said, it’s bound to happen and that’s when it matters how the fleet manager handles things. If a seemingly unsatisfied customer should call in a false claim against a driver, the GPS tracking system records all the driver statistics and could easily help to negate that false claim. Protect your employees’ reputations by having GPS tracking. Letting them know that you’ve got their back is a great way to entice the best in the field to stay.
Having a well thought out plan put into practice can make a positive impact on the automation process as well as in keeping employees satisfied. Not only will the business become more efficient than ever, but those hard working individuals you want will be drawn in by your willingness to be the best. Ready to get started with GPS tracking?
