If you have a business, which relies on trucks and drivers, probably your biggest dream is to have an ability to sit near every driver, while he is working. It is so, because the well-being of your business depends directly on the unpredictable human. Your company drivers can bring you profit or financial loss. There are many legal and unwritten rules that are meant to help you run your business safely, effectively and to gain profit. If your drivers ignore these rules, you are probably going to lose money. That’s why every truck needsto be equipped with vehicle tracking system which records all the information about your truck and its driver’s activity.
Improved driver behavior: advanced vehicle tracking systems collect data about your vehicles’ usage. You can access all the data about driving speed, engine start-up and shut-down time, idling times. If the driver knows that you can access all this data anytime, his driving behavior can change dramatically. To the positive side,of course.
Reduced fuel costs: vehicle tracking systems are capable of giving you alerts about speeding or idling of any of your vehicles. The direct alert makes you capable to react instantly and to change the way, in which one or more of your drivers behave. You can also see when your drivers use fuel only to keep desired temperature in the vehicle when idling. When you know all the issues about fuel consumption, it is easy to control it and run your assets in economic mode.
Increased safety and security: when you are using acomplex vehicle tracking system, only the authorized users can drive the truck and only you can access, delete or modify the data in the system. It means that you can directly see the misuses or even thefts of your property and then regain it quickly. Some systems even have the alert system which reminds you about planned or unplanned maintenance of the vehicle. Such a function can help you save a lot of money and avoid failures in customer service.
Another thing which you will like the most is the simplicity of using vehicle tracking system. If you choose onethat is administrated by some provider, the only thing you will need is internet. You will be able to check the live status of all your vehicles 24/7. What is more, you will get alerts via e-mail or straight to your phone. Simple and comfortable, isn’t it?
The last thing to mention about successful application of vehicle tracking system to your business is transparency. If you want everything working smoothly, profits going up and drivers being happy and productive, you must explain them that you follow every move they make and why you are doing this. If they know and understand that this has a lot to do about their safety and security, they will contribute happily and will support you.
