The following article gives just three of the many uses of a GPS vehicle tracking device
- Driver Safety And Behaviour
Driver safety is important both in business and in personal life. A GPS tracking device could put your mind at rest and give you a real time location of the vehicle, the speeds the vehicle is being driven at and route taken by the vehicle for any vehicle that it is fitted to. Your teenage child may have just past their driving test but you are worried how they are driving when they are alone. A tracker will give you that information. You have a fleet of work vans or cars and, again, you want to know how the staff are driving and if they are being economical and cost effective in their job. Not only can you get real time information 24/7 you can also look back into the past and view a report for any given day. These reports can be saved almost anywhere, such as on a computer, memory stick or disc and used at any time to analyse data and information gathered by the GPS tracker.
This is useful information for your business as you can find out if the employee is wasting time and money or if he is working smartly and cost effectively. If you suspect an employee of anything untoward, such as claiming to be off sick when they are not or using a vehicle inappropriately out of business hours. A tracker can provide this information along with a session of surveillance.
- Company Dispatch And Logistics
This device is also a great addition to delivery companies, couriers and taxi cabs, to name but a few. A GPS tracker will show you the nearest vehicle for the job. You would not have to constantly be calling one of your cabbies to see where he was you could just look at the tracking panel on your computer and give him the job. If you had an urgent courier delivery, again, you could look at the panel and see who was available to pick up the package and deliver it. With a GPS tracking device you can make good use of the vehicles in your fleet by using the information it can give you.
- Vehicle Rental Companies
To be able to retrieve an abandoned hire vehicle would save the rental company a lot of time and money. A tracker could do this and would also give the Police and your insurance company some vital information, such as the addresses that were most used and where else the vehicle travelled to. You can monitor clients who speed and those who continually park in restricted parking areas. You will then have some proof what the client is doing and you can deal with it. However in the same vain you could reward safe and courteous drivers by giving them discounts and special offers. Your fleet of vehicles would be used correctly, thus saving you time and money on repairs.
