OKLAHOMA CITY (May 4, 2016) — Business owners often reinvest income back into their business to make operations run smoothly and, hopefully, to become bigger and better. Most fleet companies have come to realize that investing in GPS trackers is a no-brainer. There are many ways that these devices can help businesses see improvement. Today, US Fleet Tracking exposes 4 GPS tracker tips to help business overcome some of their most common hurdles.
1.) Dealing With Increased Fuel Prices
It’s that time of year again when fuel prices inevitably increase. By using GPS tracker reports on fuel usage, managers can monitor the spending more closely. In addition, they can ensure that dispatchers plan out more precise routes for their drivers. Doing this will decrease the amount of mileage driven and, therefore; decrease expenses for fuel.
2.) Dealing With Unanticipated Vehicle Breakdowns
Of course, deterioration of vehicles is inevitable in time, but there is something that can be done to decrease the chances of unanticipated vehicle breakdowns. Open the GPS tracker maintenance alerts to program an automatic reminders which will help eliminate the chance of neglecting much needed maintenance on time.
3.): Dealing With Poor Customer Service
Customers are the “bread and butter” of business and they can make or break it. Poor customer service can happen just from having an unorganized team. When customers have to wait long periods of time to be helped it’s bound to lead to some negative reviews. Use the live GPS tracker map to see all vehicles in the field and send the closest technician, keeping customers serviced quicker and making them happier.
4.) Dealing With Unnecessary Overtime Payouts
Manual time sheets allowing the “honor system” to be used may be costing a fleet business unnecessary overtime payouts. Use the GPS tracker unit’s date to see recorded starting and stopping times for jobs completed in the field. This is a simple way to save the business some money on labor.
Every fleet owner wants a successful business and every fleet business manager has the job of helping that happen.
