OKLAHOMA CITY (June 06, 2014) — Who really likes purchasing life insurance, long-term disability, a plot in a cemetery? Unless a member of the Addams Family, more than likely, nobody relishes the thought of getting their money’s worth of these items since the thought of getting what was paid for seems a little morbid. These items are very important though, and in the event that they are needed, the family and loved ones are taken care of, or in the case of long-term disability, they have the funds needed to be cared for.
An aspect of GPS tracking that nobody likes to think about needing is the emergency features offered. Giving members of a fleet the ability to signal for help should they be in an emergency situation or even in the event they feel their safety is threatened is one of those features. By the simple use of a panic button, text message, or their installed GPS tracker, they can notify the dispatcher to alert the authorities if intervention is needed. If the driver is stranded on the side of the road, GPS tracking can pinpoint their location to get help on the way.
Another safety feature present with GPS tracking software is theft prevention. Since each vehicle is armed with a GPS tracker, the fleet manager will know where their vehicles are at all times, even if they have been stolen. The GPS tracker allows for real-time location tracking allowing amble time to recover the equipment before further damage is done if any.
In an event that a job comes up that needs to take priority, the ability to contact the dispatcher to locate which driver is closest to the job instead of calling each one is a major time and resource saver. Through the GPS device, the fleet manager can send the driver their new assignment. This saves time and fuel since the fleet manager is able to locate the closest driver to the job and eliminating the chances of multiple drivers going to the same job.
