GPS trackers: Advanced routing options
A dispatcher can be the unsung hero for many professions as they deal with the many chaotic and stressful situations while trying to organize daily routes for drivers. Imagine the multitude of phone calls and discussion that must be made when GPS trackers aren’t being utilized. If that’s the case a confusing job can quickly become even more frenzied. Communication, multitasking, and problem-solving skills are definitely a must for employees fulfilling these roles. Fleet managers have to be even more on top of their game to oversee all of these operations. It would be a lot easier on everyone involved if GPS trackers were implemented into the daily routine.
A great way for fleet managers to help their workers streamline activity is by having the digital aid of GPS trackers. With GPS trackers the constant phone calls can come to an end. Dispatching can utilize the GPS trackers’ advanced routing option so that drivers have a clearly planned path set before them. Using advanced route planning is the best way to optimize routes for fleets. Not only that, but there is the option to program a route alert. Route alerts send notifications when a vehicle wanders off course. In this way, you get a built in safety device! Should an accident ever occur you’d know right away that something wasn’t right.
Worried that once you set a route you’re stuck with it? Never fear! It’s quite simple for dispatching to make quick changes to routes in the event that traffic conditions or other hazards make it impossible for drivers to stick to their time schedule. Deleting and creating new paths on GPS trackers is very easy to do. If verbal cues are necessary, dispatchers can make use of the two-way communication feature. There isn’t much that these devices can’t help you with. GPS trackers really are the clever way to plan and drive!
