GPS Tracking For Environmental Solutions Companies

GPS tracking: An array of features

Environmental solutions companies have one main strategy in mind and that is to provide the most valuable resources, capabilities, and ideas for their customers to be able to protect the environment. In order to provide the best ideas to clients so that they can be environmentally compliant, it would make sense that these environmental solutions companies would work to make certain that they were on the forefront of technological advances themselves. For this reason that the greatest of these companies have decided to utilize GPS tracking.

When exploration and production companies (E&S) are seeking things such as transportation of fresh water to drilling sites, treatment of drilling wastes for recycle or disposal, and disposal of solid waste they are relying heavily on environmental solutions. The management team that monitors their environmental solution drivers have quite the task at hand. They have many things to monitor and thankfully, GPS tracking can help.

GPS tracking can help environmental solutions companies with things like:

  • Keeping up with vehicle maintenance
  • Keeping drivers from speeding, idling, and dawdling
  • Providing safety for drivers via various alerts
  • Navigating through traffic, construction, and weather
  • Keeping trucks safe after hours via Geofence alerts
  • Saving money on insurance rates
  • Getting 1, 5, or 10 second updates on field activity

While your company is dedicated to the protection and growth of environmental solutions for the energy and industrial end-markets you can let GPS tracking be the protectors for your company!

A Few Questions About GPS Tracking You May Not Think To Ask

GPS tracking: Understanding the software

When you’re introduced to something new it can be overwhelming. We understand that not everyone will know exactly which questions they should be asking when deciding whether to choose a GPS tracking platform for their fleet business. That’s precisely why we decided to go over 5 simple questions that are important to think about, but that you may not think about asking. The answers to these questions may also help you decide that GPS tracking is right for you after all.

1.) Does it integrate with other office programs?
Our GPS tracking system most certainly does integrate directly with popular office equipment service software packages such as e-automate™ and MWA Intelligence™, just to name a few. You’ll even have help from our support team to tie the tracking, dispatch and weather data directly into your ERP system.

2.) Can the program be accessed by cell phone?
We know you and your drivers are on the move that’s why we offer a mobile app for logging in to the GPS tracking software. You can even save your password so that you don’t have to type in every time you log-in.

3.) Are the alerts customizable?
There are standard alerts that are usual for just about every fleet, but there is no one-size-fits-all about our fleet management software. You can add in as many alerts as you see fit! Your imagination is the limit there.

4.) Is there any training available?
While the program is very simple to jump in and learn, we do offer installation, live chat support, call-in support, and ongoing live training videos to help your fleet get the most out of your GPS tracking investment.

5.) Do the benefits outweigh the cost?
We pride ourselves on being able to offer GPS tracking that has proven methods of reducing labor expenses, increasing revenue, stopping theft, eliminating personal vehicle use, and reducing wasted mileage. That with the integration of popular computer interfaces brings multiple possibilities for functionally and increased return on investment.

We hope these 5 simple, yet powerful questions and their answers help you to make the choice that will benefit your fleet business the most. Should that mean investing in GPS tracking devices, we’re here to help.

GPS Trackers With First-Rate Mapping

GPS trackers: Ditch the personal navigational system

Think your personal navigation system can do everything that GPS trackers can do? That’s cute, but it’s wrong. If you’re still using a personal navigation system for your fleets, there’s a lot you’re missing out on. The pretty facade and a silly voice is all you get. You may ask “well what’s wrong about that?” The answer is that tracking units, like ours, have features that don’t make you work harder than necessary to stay up-to-date with first-rate mapping. Here are a few ways that GPS trackers are superior.

1.) Automatic Updates: Personal navigation systems don’t have maps that automatically update to show current traffic conditions, road hazards or other structural changes. Guess what? GPS trackers do! These devices aren’t just equipped with pre-set maps, they’re automatically kept up to date.

2.) Automatic Data: 1, 5, or 10 second updates are offered to you when you use GPS trackers. Not only will drivers know current traffic and weather conditions, but management will know the exact location of every driver thanks to live integration.

3.) Automatic Searches: Does your personal navigation system allow you to quickly search your area for gas stations? GPS trackers allow the driver to find anything in the area on the map. The best part is that it also displays whether the location is open or closed.

With trackers you don’t get just one streamline route! You get a live map with many options to help your fleet drivers be more efficient. There really is no chance of getting lost either with the most up to date maps being delivered instantly. Personal navigation devices may be a cheaper option, but clearly they certainly aren’t superior. Are you ready to ditch the personal navigation system?

GPS Tracker Devices To Provide Safety For Teen Drivers

GPS tracker: Putting parents at ease

You know something is deemed important when there is a day, week or month dedicated to awareness for it. With that being said, it just so happens that January is teen driving awareness month. The National Safety Council and the Center For Disease Control And Prevention both state that the risk for fatal car crashes is higher among drivers between 16-19 years old. Inexperience and distracted driving are two of the top contributing factors to teen car accidents. Perhaps, a hands-free system such as GPS tracker devices, could provide safety for teen drivers and put a lot of parents at ease.

Let’s take a quick look at some GPS tracker safety benefits for teen drivers and their parents! GPS tracker devices have a lot of functions that would be helpful for parents to hold their teen drivers accountable. Some of them include:

  • Aggressive Driving Reports
  • Mileage reports
  • Weather updates
  • Traffic alerts
  • Hands-free communication
  • Fuel usage reports
  • Vehicle maintenance reminders

With the above mentioned functions, parents would know when their teen drivers were braking harshly, speeding or suddenly stopping. In addition, there would never be a question about what teen drivers were up to, because the GPS tracker would store data on all routes driven, mileage and fuel percentage used.

For added safety, the Weather Overlay feature would alert drivers of hazardous weather rolling in, traffic alerts would keep teens from heading into heavily congested areas and hands-free communication would allow parents to guide their teen drivers if they ever felt the need to do so. Vehicle maintenance reminders are just an awesome feature, because new drivers have enough to worry about. Imagine taking the guesswork out of when to change the oil.

The GPS tracker system creates many opportunities for parents to feel better about letting their teenager take a spin while also allowing teens to have a safe trip whenever, wherever.
