Imagine that somehow you can instantly know the location of every vehicle in your fleet, where you can monitor their activities, automate usage reports and even track their activities while in the field.
Well these ideas are reality when you install GPS vehicle trackers in your fleet. So use these modern devices to make managing your vehicle fleet easier.
Fleet, transport, service and delivery companies all over the world are using vehicle trackers to improve business efficiency and customer service.
Vehicle trackers reduce management time and costs
Typically drivers have to manually call in to provide their location.
With the advent of GPS vehicle trackers this is no longer requires a manual action.
Vehicle trackers automate tracking the location of each vehicle and automatically provide updates on fleet vehicle location via a computer, tablet or mobile device.
That way a fleet manager or the business owner can locate their vehicles whilst in the office, or even in the field themselves.
This saves hours of time each month trying to sort out customer requests for delivery times and notifications as well as saving administration and operational time for the fleet manager.
Automate usage reports with GPS vehicle trackers
Until now, drivers had to manually produce reports or log books and try to remember routes and distances that they travelled.
Also these manual reports were often incorrect and prone to errors since they relied on driver memory.
GPS vehicle trackers eliminate the hassle of forcing drivers to manually generate trip reports (log books).
With GPS vehicle trackers, this travel data is automatically recorded and reports now become completely accurate.

With these accurate reports your fleet manager can ensure vehicles receive necessary maintenance and ensure vehicles are only being driven on company business.
This also makes evaluating costs of deliveries, pickups and service calls more accurate in order to maximise productivity and profit when operating a fleet of vehicles.
Protecting assets and customer goods
Not only can trackers make management of fleet vehicle easier – asset protection is also a very important requirement.
If customer goods have been “lost” or reported stolen by one of your drivers, having detailed location and stops information makes it easier to determine when and where the goods were lost.
This is important for police reporting and insurance claims – as well reducing the potential bad feedback from customers that lost their goods.
Obviously if driver know that their vehicle is being tracked then employee theft could also be greatly reduced. We all like to think that drivers we employ are honest but in reality a “bad egg” has been hired by a company at least once during their time in business.
Improving business efficiency
This tracking technology is available today to remove the manual aspect of fleet management and automate this important job by reducing errors and making fleet management more effective.
