Benefits of GPS Tracking

GPS Tracking Benefits to Your Company!

Whether your fleet is big or small, the benefits of Fleet Management can be huge. From basic GPS Fleet Tracking to in-cab navigation, communication and integration with back office systems. Whatever your needs, we’ve got you covered.

Small or Medium Businesses

Sometimes, small/medium businesses just need to know where their drivers are – and where they should be. Other times, they’re looking for tools to reduce costs, like fuel usage. Or increase productivity, like getting more jobs completed in a day’s time. If you think your fleet is too small for Fleet Management, think again. The ROI of Fleet Management can be big for even the smallest of fleets.

  • Fleet Tracking that’s powerful enough for the nation’s largest fleets, flexible enough for yours.
  • The challenges facing a fleet at a small or medium business are no different than those at Fortune 100 companies. Whether you have five vehicles or 5,000 you still need to eliminate unauthorized vehicle usage, reduce fuel usage, meet your service delivery commitments, reduce safety incidents, and know where your drivers are at any given moment.

In fact, the challenges facing a small or medium sized business can often be greater than those at a larger one. With fewer resources, the fleet manager at a smaller business is often the owner of the company, who, when he’s not paying bills or invoicing customers, is out on the road himself.

In this type of operating environment, it is critical to maximize the return on every dollar spent. That’s why our Fleet Tracking Solution is designed to quickly increase productivity and reduce operating expenses. Regardless of your needs, Safety Track has the right solution to put you in the driver’s seat of your business.

GPS Tracking Benefits – Key Impact

  • Real-time visibility of vehicle locations for managing your operations.
  • Improved productivity and reduced operating expenses with reports, alerts and KPIs that highlight trouble areas allowing you to take immediate action.
  • Maintenance schedules and reminders generated off of actual use (mileage, engine hours and calendar days) reduce unscheduled maintenance and maximize vehicle life.
  • In-vehicle navigation and messaging platform routes drivers directly to their next job and improves driver productivity.

Large or Enterprise Business

  • With 100’s or 1000’s of vehicles on the road every day, you need one platform for measuring fleet performance across your entire operation. Whether it’s more visibility of your drivers, or better communication between field and office workers, the savings large companies can realize from fleet management is substantial. Plus, with the added benefit of GPS integration with schedule compliance applications, a centralized view makes dispatching and managing drivers as easy as 1-2-3.
  • Fleet tracking that makes cents out of a thousand dots on a map.
  • The sheer size of operations is often a challenge for larger companies operating a fleet. With hundreds, even thousands, of drivers on the road every day, it’s almost impossible to know how your fleet vehicles are being operated. Beyond that, it’s nearly impossible to align your entire organization so that each division or region is measuring and reporting on the same metrics.
  • Safety Track  offers a comprehensive suite of functionality designed to specifically alleviate issues faced by larger fleets.

GPS Tracking Benefits – Key Impact

  • Ability to measure and monitor enterprise goals across a standard platform.
  • Top down view of a fleet using analytics and advanced reporting tools allows you to identify areas for improvement across the entire organization or within specific divisions.
  • Integration enables the real-time exchange of location-based data with your current applications providing dispatchers and managers a 360-degree view of customer accounts.
  • Infrastructure and tools specifically designed for enterprise fleets, including an expandable vehicle hierarchy, a suite of integration tools, and a robust and scalable data infrastructure.

Departmental Benefits

Companies typically implement GPS fleet tracking for one reason—to improve the bottom line. But the truth is, implementing a GPS fleet tracking solution doesn’t just impact the bottom line of your business. It impacts everyone involved with fleet operations—from the owner of the company to the drivers in the field.

Dispatch

  1. Coordinate drivers with complete visibility into vehicle locations and two-way messaging.
  2. Adding visibility to dispatcher’s toolbox.
  3. With little visibility into where drivers are or what they are doing, dispatchers can often spend more time on the phone trying to reach their drivers instead of managing them. But what happens when drivers don’t answer their phones? How are you supposed to manage what you can’t see?
  4. Safety Track’s full suite of functionality, including real-time visibility, messaging and alerts, gives you the power to manage your drivers.

GPS Tracking Benefits – Key Impact

  • Know exactly where drivers are with complete visibility into vehicle locations—a bird’s eye view of reality.
  • Easily locate the nearest vehicle and driver to an address or location using Safety Track’s nearest vehicle search.
  • Spend less time on the phone and more time coordinating drivers with Fleet Outlook’s communication tools. Send a message directly to a driver’s in-cab navigation device and see when he receives it, opens it, accepts it (in the case of a job address) and responds.

Drivers

Reduce windshield time with:

  1. turn-by-turn directions to job locations and two-way messaging with dispatchers.
  2. Making life on the road a little easier.
  3. Drivers are some of the most important people in your organization. Not only are they the face of your company to customers, but they are also tied to the revenue of your business.
  4. Drivers are also critical to the success of a Fleet Management Solution. However, companies often overlook the benefits drivers receive and instead focus solely on the benefits to the company’s bottom line. That’s why we’ve extended the benefits of our Software to drivers. To make sure they’re successful. Because when they’re successful, your company’s successful.

GPS Tracking Benefits – Key Impact

  • Reduce the amount of time spent searching on paper maps for addresses with in-cab navigation and turn-by-turn directions to job addresses.
  • Improve communication with dispatchers using two-way messaging via a Garmin Personnel Navigation Device (PND).
  • Improve driver safety by using real-time information on both vehicle locations and operating metrics to recognize when there is a potential safety hazard.
  • Eliminate erroneous accident and aggressive driving claims by validating driver behavior and vehicle locations.

Fleet Managers

  1. Reduce unscheduled maintenance and improve maintenance compliance using maintenance schedules based on actual vehicle usage (mileage, engine hours, calendar days).
  2. Using vehicle usage data to make fleet maintenance run like clockwork.
  3. While some fleet managers have the luxury of leveraging a vehicle maintenance solution, many track maintenance schedules and vehicle service history on paper. Regardless of how they track their fleet’s maintenance, few use actual vehicle usage data to ensure scheduled maintenance is performed at the proper interval.
  4. By combining vehicle maintenance with actual usage data from the vehicle itself, Safety Track provides you a powerful tool for reducing unscheduled maintenance and extending the life of your vehicles.

GPS Tracking Benefits – Key Impact

  • Schedule maintenance and see at a glance which vehicles are due and overdue for maintenance based on actual vehicle usage (mileage, engine hours and calendar days).
  • Account for invisible vehicle wear and tear using idle metrics.
  • View fleet utilization using summary statistics to determine which vehicles are being used and which are sitting in the lot.
  • Reduce manual paperwork to enable mechanics to focus on maintenance, not shuffling papers.

Supervisors

  1. Manage by exception using real-time alerts and view reports containing actionable information about driver behavior.
  2. More than Fleet Tracking. A driver productivity and cost savings tool for supervisors.
  3. Supervisors are the first line of defense for improving driver productivity and reducing operational costs. You need real-time information that’s going to enable you to manage your fleet, and quickly identify what’s going on and where the problems are.
  4. Safety Track offers real-time alerts so you can identify issues when they happen and take action. Plus, Safety Track stores historical data so you can review driver performance from yesterday, last week or last year, with the option of having reports delivered directly to your email on a scheduled basis.

GPS Tracking Benefits – Key Impact

  • Easily view vehicle locations for a snapshot of the entire fleet.
  • Receive alerts on conditions that need immediate action, from long idles to unauthorized use.
  • View metrics on all aspects of fleet performance and easily drill down to vehicle level details to identify issues requiring corrective action.
  • View historical GPS Fleet Tracking information to diagnose systematic issues and identify trends in key operational metrics.

Executives and Management

  1. Receive the critical data needed for decisions about fleet operations via dashboards, reports and alerts.
  2. The data you need to make critical decisions about your fleet operations.
  3. Our solution provides a wealth of information about fleet operations to executives and management. With that much information available, the problem isn’t having the right data, it’s finding it.
  4. Safety Track reports and alerts bring those critical pieces of information to the forefront and allow you to make decisions based on accurate and reliable data.

In a highly competitive market, customer service is a twin challenge. Failing to meet service commitments, service level agreements and extended service outages contributes to customer dissatisfaction and attrition; but you also need to ensure compliance with business rules that safeguard your drivers in potentially hazardous situations. How do you provide dynamic, timely service while minimizing hazards and keeping your assets operating by the book?

With Safety Track, you can see at a glance where your drivers are, identify vehicles that can provide schedule coverage to meet at-risk commitments, and proactively coordinate resources to accomplish your workload. You can also ensure drivers are aware of each other’s locations and operating in compliance with critical work rules.
