GPS trackers: Your billing issues resolved

It’s a new age where GPS trackers are helping fleet business owners overcome many obstacles. They’ve already discovered the power GPS trackers give to them for drivers out on the road, but more of them are also finding out how invoicing is getting better by using the same technology. In part one of this series we talked a bit about how GPS trackers make for easier billing and provide you with a paper-free system. In part two of this series we’re talking about how GPS trackers can help deter client disputes and provide helpful, informational reports.

Deter Disputes: There will be less arguing with GPS trackers, because they make invoicing easier on everyone involved. The nice part about GPS trackers recording everything automatically is that if your client questions the invoice, you have proof to defend their claim. You will have a time stamp of the exact time that you charged them for by regarding the GPS tracker. Managers and the accounting team will know every location visited, when they were visited and how long trucks stayed on location.

Informational Reports: GPS trackers have reports for just about everything you could imagine needing. For example, idle times, labor time, vehicle usage, maintenance, fuel usage and vehicle condition. These are all important aspects for your fleet business which need to be taken into consideration when you determine what your pricing should be in order to make a profit. In this way the GPS trackers’ reports are also tied into invoicing.

In the end, anything that speeds up the billing process will, inevitably, begin to increase your business’ income. GPS trackers are helping to make speedy billing cycles and resolve any issues you might have prior to implementing these devices. With the proper documentation invoice calculations are straight forward with a lesser chance of disputes and reporting is faster.

GPS trackers: Your billing issues resolved

Many fleet business owners already know that GPS trackers could help their business by making field processes easier to control, but they may not realize that these devices have the capability of making invoicing better, too. It’s a fact that you can’t get your clients to pay you until they have an invoice. In part one of this series we will talk about how GPS trackers can have you saying hello to easier billing and a paper-free system.

Easier Billing: Decent record keeping can be tedious and take up a great deal of time. These records are a vital part of any fleet business’ ability to generate invoices. Can you imagine what would happen without time keeping? You’re invoices would be mere guess work. Thanks to GPS trackers many fleet businesses have automated information to pull from. Billing is made easier when the time stamp is automatic and you don’t have to second guess the math.

Paper-Free System: The management and accounting department aren’t the only ones that will be thankful for paperless records. The drivers won’t have to worry about carrying around hefty log books. Plus, everyone with access to the GPS trackers’ system can input notes for all to see. Manual logging could never compare as digital notes don’t have the same potential to get lost in the shuffle of the day’s work. Invoicing isn’t a chore when the accountants have the data of dated, timed stamped actions, like clocked work time, at the touch of a finger.

Sometimes, the traditional methods of ensuring accuracy can be time consuming leaving you stuck without payment for several weeks. Without GPS trackers you may be stuck dealing with the tedious task of digging through paper log books from your drivers’ records. If you don’t want to get trapped in the trenches of inefficiency, consider adding GPS trackers to your list of must-have items for the future.
