OKLAHOMA CITY (March 20, 2016) — Fleet business owners already know that they need an intelligent way to optimize their drivers’ routes on a daily basis. Having something that systematically calculates and displays routed paths in real-time is one of the most cost-effective, customer-friendly technologies. GPS tracker devices have the capability to provide convenient, live maps with planned routes. There are a few ways device users can utilize the map to view their routes in the most optimal, beneficial way.
First, the desired routes managers wish their drivers to take need to be created. Logging in is the first step and then simply by clicking on the Dispatch/Routing tab and Routing button one will see a pop up of all routes in their list. If there aren’t any, it only takes minutes to create one! Next, there are options for viewing routes.
1.) Street views: There isn’t just one map view to see routes however is most beneficial. There is a simple map view that is basic, a birdseye view, a satellite view and a hybrid view. Having these customized options provides effective, intuitive GPS tracker usage for managers, drivers and dispatchers.
2.) Zoomed out: Upon entering the GPS tracker system, the map usually defaults as being “zoomed out”. This allows a nationwide or worldwide view of all fleet drivers and the routes that have been created for each of them.
3.) Zoomed in: By zooming in at a specific location on the GPS tracker screen, dispatchers can get a more precise view and by checking the Small Icons box on map controls, anyone will be able to distinguish the difference between any vehicles that may be slightly overlapping on the same routes.
Why are planned routes so helpful? When drivers need to take a specific path due to road blockages or detours, routes become super helpful. Management can even go as far as to set up variations or how far out from the set path it will take before an alert is sent. No matter what the industry, the fact is that being on time is essential and having planned routes can help fleets accomplish that goal. Not only do GPS tracker routes help management to know vehicles are moving as they should be, but there is an added measure of security so that vital issues can be attacked right away.
