Why Your Business Should Use Fleet Tracking

Why Your Business Should Use Fleet Tracking

It is estimated that the benefits of fleet tracking can cause a typical small business with a fleet of company vehicles to save enough money to pay for the installation of a GPS fleet tracking solution in less than 2 months.

1. More Efficient Routing

GPS equipment allows you to have precise locations of delivery vehicles. This makes it possible to route technicians, repairmen and delivery personnel more efficiently, and to let customers know in real time, about any potential delays in routing or delivery. Routes are therefore optimized and any last minute changes can be easily implemented. This will not only improve customer satisfaction, but the speed of delivery will also increase the speed of the cash flow to your business.

2. Reduced Transportation Costs

Because of more accurate data gathered on the movements of vehicles in your fleet, you have better control over mileage, proactive maintenance, and fuel economy. It’s a lot easier to keep track of fuel economy when you can factor in idle times.

3. Time Worked Equals Time Paid

In similar vein, you now have an accurate record of where every vehicle in your fleet has traveled over the course of a given day. This can save you money in payroll; when you have an accurate log of where every vehicle is at every hour of the day, you can cross reference it against employee time sheets for hours spent driving for reimbursement.

4. Heightened Security

Most vehicle-tracking GPS software allows you to set a “virtual fence” which lets you tell when a vehicle has gone “out of zone” – this is good for tracking if a vehicle has made an unscheduled detour, or to track it down if it’s stolen.

5. Less Travel Downtime

A recent survey conducted by Motorola found that having fleet vehicles equipped with GPS actually decreased travel downtime by 53 percent and improved employee accountability by 26 percent.
