How Can GPS Vehicle Tracking Improve Your Business?

When you’re running a business with a fleet of vehicles, it can be tough to stay efficient and in the know about what’s going on with your drivers. How can you possibly improve your business if you don’t have access to the information you need? That’s where web-based GPS tracking equipment comes into play. Here’s how it can help you improve your business.

Insight into Real-Time Issues

One of the most frustrating aspects of managing a vehicle fleet without any GPS fleet tracking equipment is not having access to real-time information on your drivers’ routes. Issues like aggressive driving behavior, unnecessary idling, traffic jams, accidents, and other route delays can have serious impacts on your business’s bottom line. Let’s take a look at how access to this information can actually help your business.

  • Maintenance costs associated with idling can add up to $2 per day for diesel engines. That’s upwards of $700 annually just for idling costs.
  • Global Productivity Report data revealed that almost 34% of employee time at work is spent being unproductive.
  • Some vehicle fleets report total idling time makes up for almost 45% of a driver’s total time on the road.
  • Driving at the speed limit of 110 kph rather than 130 kph can reduce fuel consumption by up to a quarter (25%).

With a web-based GPS tracking system, you’ll be able to take a proactive stance on all of these issues. GPS fleet tracking allows for the real-time transfer of information. So if one of your drivers is behaving recklessly or there’s a maintenance issue on one of your vehicles, you’ll know right away. Having immediate access to this information will allow you to take the proper precautions so your fleet can be in tip-top shape for the next day of driving.

Improving Productivity

Productivity often increases when GPS tracking is implemented. This is due to employees driving and working more efficiently when they know their vehicles are monitored. Fleet operators can see when drivers are wasting too much time idling in one location, taking longer than usual to complete a job or go off the direct route. By using data like idle times, mileage, speed, and engine on time, fleet owners can monitor productivity. Fleet owners can make sure employees use their vehicles only for authorized purposes during specific hours and set alerts to be notified if a truck or bus is used during off-hours. This can improve productivity and reduce the liability of drivers using vehicles on off-hours.

Fleet businesses can also improve productivity in the back office. They can use GPS tracking reporting to automate payroll to pay employees accurately. GPS systems track when a vehicle starts and shuts down for the day, providing an automated record of how long an employee worked. 

Whether you’ve had your fleet for five years or 15, GPS tracking can help your business run more efficiently and more effectively.
