Fleet operators and owners face significant challenges today with respect to visibility in how their fleet operates. GPS Fleet Tracking solutions are designed to ease some of the issues involved in operating a fleet. Customer service, safety of the vehicle and driver, utilization, and cost reduction often top the list of reasons to implement a GPS Fleet Tracking Solution.
Efficiency, Visibility and Customer Service. Fleet operators continue to struggle with limited visibility of their drivers and critical fleet assets. GPS Fleet Tracking solutions actively improve ways to communicate with employees. Customer satisfaction often increases when business partners arrive onsite precisely at the agreed upon time and are billed for accurate time spent at the location. Demonstrating exceptional customer service instills confidence and trust resulting in a greater number of repeat customers and positive references.
Cost Reduction. A challenging economy coupled with rising costs of fuel, labor and vehicles has eroded operating margins, putting additional pressure on fleet operators to reduce vehicle operation and maintenance costs, and improved asset utilization. The use of a GPS Fleet Tracking solution will provide visibility into which vehicles are being used and which aren’t and could be sent to auction. Route optimization and navigation can improve efficiency; reduce mileage resulting in less wear and tear of your fleet!
Environmental Stewardship. Fleet operators are now actively implementing Green Fleet programs. Lowering fuel consumption and reducing carbon emissions through enforced anti-idling campaigns, fleet right-sizing, route and asset optimization, and proactive vehicle maintenance programs positively impact the environment as well as the bottom line.
Regulatory Risk & Legal Exposure. Laws and regulations governing hours of service, fuel purchase and idling times have created a paperwork nightmare for fleet operators, who must accurately monitor and report on fleet performance in all regulated areas to reduce risk, and avoid costly legal penalties.
Benefits of a GPS Fleet Tracking solution go far beyond simple location monitoring. With consistent use a fleet operator can reduce labor and maintenance costs, enhance services and performance, and improve utilization.

Benefits of GPS Fleet Tracking
There are many benefits To GPS Tracking. one of them is lower maintenance costs. When you track your vehicles, your drivers stay within posted speed limits, and this reduces engine and tire wear. Whats more, automatic and scheduling for regular service and maintenance can be set up, which means your vehicles are looked after better, and as a result stay in better condition, longer.
Another benefit when you track your vehicles is that you can minimize off-hours usage, further reducing your fuel and maintenance costs.
As a manager you can control your fleet better, because unauthorized usage is virtually eliminated due to the system identifying such activity and notifying you immediately.
Should one of your vehicles be stolen, it is immediately tracked and found. Alerts can also be set up to let you know if a vehicle moves outside of a geographical area that you decide on.
Ranking right up there as major benefits of our GPS Tracking systems is the ability to optimize routes by avoiding heavy traffic areas, real-time examination of routes so pickups and deliveries are made in proper sequence, and the ability to always know where your drivers are so you can alert customers of arrival times.
Another benefit is that many insurance companies offer a discount for companies with GPS Tracking. Monitored vehicles are looked after better, and drivers are more responsible, so bad driving habits are reduced, thus cutting back on accidents. And of course as stated earlier, theft of both vehicles and loads is reduced because you never lose track of them, again reducing insurance costs.
