GPS tracking: Many benefits for fleets
How were your profits this summer? Perhaps, they weren’t what you hoped they would be. Are you looking for new ways to improve your business for the rest of the year? GPS tracking can really give your fleet business many benefits that will help you in the process of improving business practices. Today, we’re going to talk about a few ways you can start to make use of those benefits.
1.) Scheduling And Updating Jobs: The system allows management to automatically schedule jobs for drivers. Then, drivers can continuously update on their job status via the GPS tracking software to keep dispatchers and managers informed. Everyone stays in the loop, making things run more smoothly.
2.) Dispatching And Routing: Dispatchers can communicate with drivers via two-way communication so that drivers can keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Routes can be easily created on the map and manipulated in case heavy traffic or construction stands in the way.
3.) Providing Live Views And Safety: The live map shows management the location of every driver in the field. This ensures drivers stay on the right track. The reports provide safety by recording driver behaviors such as speeding, harsh braking, acceleration and other aggressive driving behaviors. With this data, management can take action to reduce insurance claims, driver injury, and vehicle repairs.
GPS tracking makes completing jobs and efficient routing simple rather than taking up countless hours. It’s also an effective way to save time on routing and provide extra security measures. As an added bonus, by making your fleet team improve it’s possible to take on more jobs and really rake in the profits. It’s never been easier to earn return on investment from a product and make more money at the same time. It’s a fantastic time to start thinking about how you could be doing business better with GPS tracking.

GPS tracking: The power of a button click
As a fleet manager it’s your job to know what your drivers are doing. You may have a rough estimate as to where they are and what job they are completing, but keeping track of their routes for several stops in a day can be challenging. This is especially true without a tracking system. Is the old fashioned pen and paper mileage tracker or cell phone app your current method of “verification”? What if we told you that GPS tracking could do a much better job of helping to create and plan more efficient routing? Now that we have your attention, let us explain how!
As a manager of fleets aiming to be service providers, it is your job to make sure your drivers are making it to their appointments on time. Say you have one driver with 15-30 service stops scheduled for the day. Organizing those stops, manually, to maximize time, in a way that they make the most sense and don’t cost your business more money on fuel would take a lot of effort! While more stops may mean more clients on the schedule, that doesn’t mean your drivers will actually make it out to see everyone on the list if routes aren’t planned efficiently.
GPS tracking has the power of a button click, available right at the fingertips of dispatchers back at the office. Best of all, managers can see everything and so can drivers! With GPS tracking, the Advanced Routing options make it easy for dispatchers to enter in all stops or locations and generate a path that is the quickest, thus; saving your driver’s time, decreasing fuel usage and increasing the possibility of actually finishing all stops on the schedule for the day. Being able to complete work quickly means having an increased bottom line. Who doesn’t want more revenue?

This hot July is a speeding train coming to a halt in just a few days. With a new month comes a new mind set. It’s a perfect time to reflect on your summer earnings, how business was handled and set strategies for even greater success for the remainder of the year. GPS tracking can really give your fleet business the jolt it needs to be better than ever. In part one of this series we are going to talk about two out of four ways that GPS tracking benefits fleets, just like yours.
1.) Job scheduling: Calling around to find the closest worker to a job-site is a thing of the past with GPS tracking. The system allows management to automatically schedule jobs for drivers. Drivers can update on their job status via the GPS tracking software to keep dispatchers and managers informed.
2.) Easy dispatching: Dispatchers can use two-way communication to alert drivers if needed. With a simple touch the route can be dragged to a new path on the map in case heavy traffic or construction stands in the way of a driver getting to a customer timely. To make matters easier, all drivers in the field can be viewed on one, live map screen.
GPS tracking makes completing jobs and efficient routing simple rather than taking up countless hours. GPS tracking is an effective way to save time and possibly allow drivers to complete jobs quicker which translates to getting more work done in one day. It’s never been easier to leap into the digital age and start doing business smarter. Once you see the true benefits of GPS tracking, you’ll wish you would have done it sooner.
