8 Benefits Companies are receiving from Vehicle GPS Tracking Technology

 

With the price of vehicle GPS tracking devices becoming more and more affordable for businesses, users are welcoming a variety of ways to apply GPS tracking and its benefits. Below are eight great reasons for an organization to consider a GPS fleet tracking solution.

1 Accountability

  •  Before vehicle GPS Tracking, a company had to take it on trust that an employee in a company-owned vehicle was using the vehicle properly, safely and where the company requested. Now with vehicle GPS tracking, companies can monitor the use of its vehicles, making sure the users treat the vehicles with respect and are accountable for their actions.

2 Customer Service

  • Rather than giving customers approximate times, the main office can easily see exactly where the driver is now, and how far away from the customer they are.  This makes it very easy for the business to inform customers about pickup, delivery or service arrival times down to 5 minutes accuracy if required.For example, if a business customer has an urgent item they need for their customer, they call your office, and one of your staff says the driver is 12 kilometres away and should be there within 10 minutes.  This is much better than replying with “the driver should be there sometime this afternoon, or around 5 pm”.Your customers will certainly be impressed with the accuracy of your service times.  This is a great competitive advantage and can win your business over your competitors.

3 Fuel Savings

  •  A quality GPS fleet tracking system will allow you to work with your employees and drivers to noticeably cut your fuel usage, with access to quality data and reports you can check vehicle speed, idle times, driving routes, etc.

4 Safer Driving & Less Risk

  •  Today’s GPS fleet tracking systems, like systems available at Go GPS, give a company useful reports on driving habits such as speeding, harsh braking and rapid acceleration. This allows you to quickly identify and catch problem drivers, which can lead to a reduction in accidents and liability risk. The whereabouts of your field staff, especially during bad weather, can be a real concern.

5 Productivity

  • GPS tracking is a great tool for monitor worker performance. Data reports allows you to identify the average amount of time your staff spend at job sites. Look at how efficient workers are. The outcome is increased productivity.

6 Communication

  • With the right GPS Solution, GPS fleet tracking is a powerful tool to enhance communication and coordination between your field workers and the office. You can send messages to your drivers and they can respond, all with the greatest of ease.

7 Fast Vehicle Recovery

  • If the unfortunate happens and one of your fleet vehicles is stolen, knowing it’s exact location using the GPS vehicle tracking device allows you (or the police) to recover your vehicle quickly thereby reducing vandalism and damage.  Also, quick response to theft greatly increases the likelihood of the vehicle’s recovery before it’s stripped down.

8 Maximise your business vehicle assets

  • Using such reporting functionality you can see if any vehicles are being over or under utilised and make better business decisions of the use of these assets.  This is another efficiency boost for your business.
