Thought fleet tracking was a luxury you couldn’t afford? Think again.
What is a vehicle tracker?
Quite simply, it’s a small electronic box that fits inside your vehicle, which sends signals with details of where it is and what speed it is travelling at.
This super useful data comes from the GPS Satellite system, which also feeds position data on your vehicles to all your satnavs and devices.
What are the benefits?
In a word: Data. These modern tracking systems give you and your company huge amounts of powerful data that will let you run your fleet more efficiently – which means saving a lot of money.
Most importantly, you can also monitor driver behaviour data, such as harsh acceleration and braking, time using the cruise control, pedal position, rpm bands, fuel consumption, and engine diagnostics. This nifty little device will stop your workers driving like maniacs in a flash!
And all of this rich telematics information is then fed back to you, directly on your PC or smart phone.
Why are vehicle trackers so popular for businesses?
Ask anybody who has had vehicle tracking on their fleet, and they will tell you that they couldn’t live without it.
In the same way that mobile phones became indispensable to us over a decade ago, now tracking has become the must-have business tool if you want to take full control of your fleet.
