Vehicle Tracking - Choosing the Most Appropriate Tracking For Your Fleet

Aug 21, 2008
The ease with which GPS tracking helps you to keep tabs on your business productivity and contributes to the reduction to your overall business costs such as fuel and missed deadlines means it is the investment for businesses involved in any type of vehicle management and logistics services.

There is a great deal of choice available when it comes to choosing a vehicle tracking system and your selection will inevitably depend on what kind of business you run as well as what you need from the system that determines which of the many products you should choose.

GPS tracking systems work by sending precise microwave signals from satellites to the receiver in your vehicle. This data can then be processed into a location, which is presented to the client in the form of a digital map. This is the most basic level of vehicle tracking available but there are many other benefits that a tracking system can offer.

Most systems are customisable to give each type of business the exact details they need to improve their service history and efficiency across the fleet. If you are running a large operation it's important to have all the facts at your fingertips so you can despatch new drivers should you need to and to be confident that your vehicles are working to their optimum capacity.

For example, there are GPS Vehicle tracking systems that can determine whether the engine has been switched off and for how long, just as there are systems which can provide a historic activity report so you can keep tabs on the progress of your vehicle and its goods. Whether you are looking for an in-depth analysis of every vehicle or simply an exact indication of its location direction and speed, there is a GPS tracking system for your business.

If you are looking to improve your overall operational control of the fleet while it's in motion, having information about every vehicle not only benefits the company but can improve customer relations too. If, for example, you are working to a tight deadline with a delivery and your client phones to ask when it will arrive, having a GPS tracking system on-board means you can give an exact timescale with regards to arrival time. This is a fantastic way to reassure every client and to make sure you meet your desired ETA.

You can also improve the working conditions of your drivers with the right vehicle tracking system - after all no one likes sitting in traffic for hours! Avoiding delays on the roads using mapping software helps you to meet your deadlines and means you can free up more drivers to make more pick-ups in a day.

A GPS system can even help out when proving the validity of a parking ticket so you don't lose out unnecessarily. Saving you money on additional costs such as these as well as helping you to improve your driver's routes to save on fuel and speed, the right vehicle tracking system can help every one.
