How GPS Trackers Involve Football Players

GPS tracker: Bringing the “A” game

GPS tracker technology is a rapid-growing trend and it is now being used for some NFL football players. It is amazing to think that technology has made such great strides in the last few years. In the 1990’s, GPS tracking was hardly even thought of, but in 2015 we are all about what the new trends will be. This technology can be used to tell which football players are putting their best foot forward and which ones are lagging behind.

By watching the football players, coaches and staff can keep tabs on bio-mechanical data. The GPS trackers offer real-time monitoring which can be used to put players on the sidelines if they require a much needed rest. GPS tracker technology is being used for football practices as well for the safety of the players. It is being used to monitor vitals so as to prevent them from getting to a state of fatigue. In addition, players can monitor their injuries during conditioning, practices and games. Currently, fifteen out of thirty two NFL teams are managing their players with GPS trackers.

The GPS trackers are essentially collecting data over a period of time so coaches and trainers will have a basis to predict when players are peaking. The GPS tracking monitor is small enough to fit into a pouch underneath the shoulder pads and measures many stats per second. The GPS tracker, then, relays the information to monitoring software on a computer, turning it into an easy to read number. The higher the number is, the greater the exertion level of the player is.

Besides monitoring vital statistics, the GPS trackers can also measure a player’s running speeds, speed changes and directional changes. Knowing a player’s behaviors can add value to the types of plays coaches can plan out. It can also let coaches know which players are doing their best.

GPS trackers are definitely bringing their “A” game, are you?

Ways to better your business with a GPS Tracker

GPS Tracker: Working Smarter Made Easier for You

It’s not being lazy if you have a system in place to help your business, it’s being efficient! The truth is you have probably been drilled on the idea of working hard your whole business career and often times you most likely put in more work than necessary. Continuing down the path of tedious, meaningless work is time consuming and a waste of money. GPS tracker technology can do many things to make your life a little easier.

If you’re spending endless, tiresome hours keeping manual records for invoicing, then you’re working too hard. GPS tracker solutions can simplify the process for you by keeping track of information. You can pull reports to access dates, times and accurate hours worked on a project for proper billing. GPS trackers can help you save time and that is the most important aspect of business, because as they say, “time is money.”

Another great way a GPS tracker can help better your business is by tracking information about your fleet vehicles. Wouldn’t it be nice to stop manually logging odometer readings? A GPS tracker can give you a reading of vehicle odometers for your entire fleet in real-time. Also, we all know it can be ridiculously time consuming to stay on top of vehicle maintenance. A GPS tracker could also help you in this area by scheduling and sending vehicle service reminders.

Lastly, but definitely not the least important way, a GPS tracker can improve customer service. If there is a customer emergency you want to make sure you can respond as rapidly as possible. Your fleet can do that most easily by seeing a live access GPS tracker map. In this way, the drivers will know which vehicle is closest to the customer in need, saving a lot of wasted time trying to figure this out on their own. Keep in mind not all GPS tracker systems are the same, and most systems are nowhere near live updating platforms.

Working a smarter way, not a harder way is what a GPS tracker can offer you.

GPS Tracker….The New Truancy Officer?

GPS Tracker: Changing the world.

The days of cutting class is over for middle school students in Australia. To combat a high truancy statistic, the parents and teachers of the district have used GPS trackers to monitor their students, bringing attendance from 68% to 90%. This improvement shows yet another great way GPS trackers are changing the world.

The Australian middle school is using a program that taps into the school’s attendance system through the connectivity of an app called “message you.” When the child is absent, not only do the parents receive an update, they also receive information on their child’s current whereabouts. This app puts responsibility back into the hands of the parents. Knowing where their child is located through a GPS tracker, they can get a head start in tracking them down and working to improve their desire to gain an education at a younger age.

If this trend picks up world-wide, GPS trackers could really be responsible for a shift in the economy. Since the program is available for every social class, more children have a chance of continued education, potentially pulling more individuals out of their direction of poverty. GPS trackers could ideally change the path (no pun intended) of those individuals steering toward the drop-out percentage. This program, made possible through GPS tracking, could become that added element of accountability, for both the student and the parent. No longer can a parent dismiss their responsibility by saying “I don’t know where my child is.” They will know exactly where their child is, whether that is at school, or a location they should not be.

Among the good that could come from keeping more children in school, a GPS tracker could also add security. Having access to a child’s location may be a life-saver should an Amber Alert arise.

While those opposed to this type of monitoring say that GPS trackers on children would be intrusive and acts as “Big Brother,” no one can deny that in this case, this use of a GPS tracker could save lives and give others a bigger and brighter future.

GPS Tracking: Changing the world one pin point at a time: Part 2

How has GPS Tracking changed your world?

As mentioned, at US Fleet Tracking, we really focus on the aspect of GPS tracking in relation to companies with large fleets, but that does not mean that we are not excited to see the advances in technology and how GPS tracking in changing our world.

A few months back we were able to be involved in a project with the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. We were involved with the tracking of the various vehicles responsible for transporting all the needed equipment in order to run the event without a hitch. We were responsible for seeing that runners and spectators alike had a good time without even knowing all the work behind the scenes. Your not knowing we were there is possibly one of our biggest compliments. Because of the service we offer, those orchestrating every aspect of the event, could guide and track where each vehicle transporting which item was at all time.

So as we were taking care of the ins and outs on a large scale, another aspect of GPS tracking was in play. For the runners and their families, GPS tracking was linked to an app that as linked to the chip the runners wore that gave a play-by-play of their entire journey start to finish. When a running crossed the starting line, GPS tracking was at work. The app used gave family members the ability to see where that runner was located by the simple typing in of their bib number which was assigned to their individual GPS tracking device. If a husband planned to cheer his wife on at miles 20, which is historically one of the hardest points of a marathon, he could plan his day according to her location at a given time. Understanding her pace and seeing her location on the map could help him determine what time she would be at the 20 mile mark. On her side, she is given a reminder of what time she will cross the finish line at her pace. At the end of the race, the GPS tracker implementation is what gives her a summary of her race, not only with what time she finished, but also, what time she crossed certain milestones along the race.

GPS tracking has added so many more conveniences in our modern world, as time goes on, who knows where GPS tracking will take us.

Cutting Fuel Costs through GPS Tracking

GPS Tracking = Saving $$$

GPS tracking is a must have for any company managing the operation of any vehicle. The cost of purchasing the service is payed back time and time by either the money the company saves with us or through additional business picked up from the additional time they now have available. The savings are through the roof in various areas of the business, but the cost from a reduction in fuel costs alone is enough to justify the addition of GPS tracking.

GPS tracking gives the company your company access to knowing more detailed information about your fleet. Many items have been wasting your money for years, so this new found knowledge is sure to be an eye opener to your accounting department.

The first way you will save money on fuel is that with GPS tracking, you will know when a vehicle is idling for an extended, unnecessary period of time. Rumor has it that stopping and restarting an engine wastes too much fuel, so leaving the vehicle running is more cost effective. This is only a rumor, and in fact is wasteful of your money. With your GPS tracker, you will have access to seeing the amount of time a vehicle is running, yet staying in one place. If you find that a driver has a habit of idling for more than a few hours a day, this matter should be brought to his or her attention.

Another cost saving feature of our GPS tracker is that your drivers are not as likely to waste your valuable time lost, or taking a time consuming route down the road. With GPS tracking, dispatchers have the ability to see the exact location of your drivers as well as the best, most direct route to his or her location. If in event a driver was lost, dispatchers can quickly help them find their way back to the route. The faster your drivers reach their locations, the faster the job is done, and the more time they have available for other jobs. This makes travel time shorter, which again, reduces fuel costs.

These two areas are only a few ways to cut costs using GPS tracking. We are confident that you will find even more unique ways that your company will save money and boost that earning potential.
