Install GPS Vehicle Tracking for Some Real Business Benefits

May 16, 2008
If you have a business of any type and you run one or more vehicles as part of your business then if you are not using a GPS vehicle tracking system then you are definitely missing out on some major benefits.

The cost of a GPS tracking device for each of your vehicles is not expensive anymore. You can now get small miniaturized portable tracking units which have no installation cost because you can easily install them yourself. They just need to be physically situated in a secure location somewhere within the vehicle.

These new portable GPS trackers are fully self-contained with their own internal rechargeable long-life battery power source and powerful built-in antenna that will work just about anywhere, including in the depths of a city centre concrete jungle.

Whether you have just a car, a van, some trucks or a whole fleet of vehicles you will be able to make very good use of a vehicle tracking system because it will bring real benefits to your business and today setting this all up is really affordable.

This is especially true if you have employees that use your vehicles whether it is for travel to meetings or for deliveries and collections. To save you money and make the very best use of your vehicles you need to know where time is wasted and costs are too high and where real savings can be made.

If you don't know how and where your vehicles are being used then there really is no chance that you are going to be able to make any real savings. Here knowledge truly is power.

As soon as you know what is happening then you can start to make adjustments to make your business more efficient and in the end more profitable.

When employees take advantage of the company cars you let them use then you are losing money. The problem here is that without vehicle tracking you will never know what it is really costing you especially when employees claim costs back from you when you have no way of verifying if they are valid or not.

If you have a GPS vehicle tracking system installed in your vehicles you will be able to see at any time of any day where your vehicles are located, but more importantly you will be able to discover where they have been and what they have been doing.

From historical movement tracking records and details of vehicle speed and stop-start times you will be able to analyze what your vehicles have been doing and therefore determine the efficiency of your vehicles and what are valid costs and what are not.

Oil prices are going up and this is going to continue and probably get worse so gas costs are something on which you can make a big saving.

Once your employees know that they are being monitored you will find that all the little extra trips they do which you are paying for will reduce and your costs will quickly decrease. So just by installing a tracking system and letting your workforce know that vehicle usage is being tracked can save you money.

Another benefit is that you will now know when your vehicle is idle and that potentially time is being wasted. If a driver is taking long breaks and not doing as many deliveries as might otherwise be accomplished then this is inefficient and in the end costing you.

Look at all the angles and you will soon find that with a GPS vehicle tracking system there are many ways to make your business more profitable by reducing vehicle running costs and the lowering the cost of expensive employees.
