GPS tracker: Getting data quickly
The GPS tracker alert system enables you to create an infinite number of various alerts for whatever you feel is important for you to know about how your fleet business is being run. The nice part about the program is that it allows you to designate if you want the alerts emailed to you or sent via text. Both options are nice and there is always the option to have both! It seems though, that getting quick messages via text is often regarded as the best option and some feel as though it’s the only option for them.
That could be a mistake. We’re going to talk about one major reason why having GPS tracker alerts emailed to you may be a smart choice. Having GPS tracker alerts emailed to you is great, because they are easier to sift through that way. Let’s explain a little more about what we mean. First of all, many email programs allow you to create folders and move inbox emails so that you still have important data you need (for now or later) without it clogging up your view of new, incoming emails. Why is this important?
Well, have you ever had a boss or heard of one always asking for important questions to be emailed to them even though you just tried to have the same face-to-face conversation with them? It’s about protecting themselves and covering all of their basis.
With GPS tracker alerts, you can get everything from Speed Alerts to Geofence Alerts sent to email and they can be accessed right away. This is vital, because if there is ever a cause for concern with one of your drivers and you need to have “the talk”, then you can sift through GPS tracker alerts in your email a lot quicker than you could scroll through a slew of texts to find the data you need to prove your point. Not only is it easy to find email data quickly, but they’re easier to print.
See? Getting email isn’t such a bad thing.

GPS tracking: Going the distance
In the past, tracking mileage for business used to involve notebooks, loose leaf papers, binders and sometimes just a scribble on some random, scrap piece of paper. That was, no doubt, the stuff of accounting nightmares. Luckily, GPS tracking has awarded many fleet businesses with technology to release them from the the doom and gloom of spending hours or days calculating.
With our GPS tracking system users will notice two pre-built reports for mileage tracking. Why are there two? You may be wondering and, perhaps, it may seem confusing, especially if you’re new to the world of GPS tracking. Today, we’re going to briefly discuss the difference between these two mileage reports provided to you upon start-up.
1.) Device Mileage Report: This report is basic and allows you to track how far your vehicles travel in a single day. If you are a local business, not driving out of state, then this report is perfect for you to easily calculate mileage, individually, for each vehicle. The GPS tracking system will allow you to print the report if needed.
2.) Device Mileage By State Report: This report is a bit more advanced. It has the ability to keep track of daily mileage driven by each vehicle from state to state. Thus, if you are running a larger operation with a fleet that goes out of state then you can generate this report to see mileage information for specific or all vehicles based on the states they were in and at what time.
So there you have it; a fast and easy way to track mileage no matter how near or far your fleet drivers travel. With GPS tracking going the distance for your drivers, you’ll be a better business in no time. Imagine, already, just how much time and money you’ll save just by tracking your mileage automatically!
