real-time gps tracking

When you’re operating a fleet, you don’t need anyone to tell you what a difference happy customers can make for your business. Not only are they more likely to be repeat customers, but they are also more likely to offer referrals for your business and that means more money in your pockets.

But, what you might not realize, is just how much GPS fleet tracking can help you keep your customers happy. These are just a few ways you can use GPS fleet tracking to keep your customers deliriously happy with the job you’re doing for them.

  • Provide more accurate appointment windows. Whether you’re making deliveries or delivering a service, appointment windows and ETAs are important to customers. When businesses miss these windows because drivers get lost, are stuck in traffic, or have drivers diverting off course to take care of personal errands on your time (and the customer’s time) it can be hugely disappointing to the customers.

GPS fleet tracking helps you avoid all these situations with more efficient route planning, on-the-go alternative routing to avoid traffic delays, and text alerts when drivers deviate from prescribed routes. This keeps everything working on schedule much better throughout the day. You can also send live updates of ETAs to customers through your GPS tracking system or allow them to track the progress of their deliveries or appointments in real time as an added layer of customer service many companies do not offer.

  • Use GPS tracking software to help you to personalize the customer experience. Everyone wants to feel special and wanted. You can use your GPS fleet tracking software to make notes about individual customer preferences and other little things that will help you make your customers feel remembered and important to you. This small detail will have a significant impact on their experience and how likely they will be to recommend you to others.


  • Improve communication between dispatch and drivers. This helps you stay up to date with what is going on at various job sites so that you can make alternate arrangements or notify customers quickly of potential delays related to unexpected problems at other job sites.

GPS tracking is about so much more than mapping and mileage or even cutting fuel costs. The benefits to your business are nearly infinite if you choose the right fleet tracking service and invest a little energy in learning about the new and exciting ways you can use this as a tool for building your business bigger, better, and stronger than ever before.

Experts have concluded that although GPS collars could be detrimental to the daily activities of wild cats, they can save them from humans killing them. It’s thought that when big cats prey on domestic animals, locals retaliate. Therefore, if a wild cat is wearing a GPS tracking collar, people are less likely to harm them for fear of repercussions.

GPS tracking technology is an effective investigative tool in terms of prosecuting any individual suspected of killing a big cat. Ron Thompson runs Primero The organization places its focus on the killing of pumas and jaguars in Mexico. He co-authored a study, The Decline of a Jaguar (Panthera onca) Subpopulation in Sonora Mexico.

The study recommended that GPS tracker collars be placed on all jaguars in the Sonora area. Additionally, the reasoning for this should be common knowledge throughout the surrounding communities.

Furthermore, educating locals about the big cats is paramount to their protection. Private security guards should also monitor the animals to ensure their safety from human attack.

According to information from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the jaguar (Panthera onca)  is near-threatened in America. It’s thought that India can learn a great deal from this study as there, mortality of big cats and wild animals in general is common. As many as 67 tigers have died in India this year alone. Many of these deaths have been as a result of conflict with humans and poachers.

Researchers who have been monitoring jaguars for almost ten years pinpointed 26 in northwest Sonora. The number fell into decline after March 2012. In June 2015, researchers saw only one jaguar. Throughout the time between November 2016 and May 2017, researchers saw no jaguars in the area.

The study recorded the illegal destruction of six jaguars. The team discovered that one of these animals was killed through the GPS collar data and via examination of its burnt remains. The researchers were also told by ranchers that even more of the animals met their deaths outside the study area. Both jaguars with GPS collars were killed on the study site, one by gunshot and the other was likely poisoned.

It’s hoped that through the use of GPS tracking collars and education, more wild cats can remain safe.

GPS asset tracking for pallets can mean a world of difference for your organization when it comes to keeping track of valuable items in your warehouse. Today, the technology behind GPS tracking has evolved, making it an essential tool for helping your business operate more efficiently. These are just a few of the numerous ways GPS tracking for assets can help you grow your business.

Improve Customer Satisfaction

The fewer items that are lost in translation, misplaced, incorrectly mailed, or arrive late; the happier your customers will be. This translates into higher customer satisfaction ratings and more repeat business for you. In the world of shipping, repeat business is your bread and butter so keeping your customers happy is the real secret to success. GPS asset tracking means that you can quickly locate the pallet where specific items are located for a faster and more efficient shipping process.

Reduced Labor Costs

Most businesses have no idea how much time is spent attempting to locate misplaced items on any given day. Using GPS powered tools for asset tracking means there is no more time wasted trying to locate missing items because your workers are led straight to the items in question each and every time. This alone will help reduce overtime, improve efficiency, and cut costs associated with labor for your entire organization.

Improved Loss Prevention

Lost and stolen goods is a widespread problem for businesses that house large volumes of inventory, such as warehouses and distribution centers. GPS enabled asset tracking can help to reduce theft and lost items in the warehouse while also improving the rates of recovery when entire pallets or designated high-value items go mission. This helps your business cut costs related to insurance and dissatisfied customers and helps to reduce careless handling of merchandise and theft among your employees.

Identify When and Where Items are Offloaded During Delivery

Sometimes mistakes happen and the wrong pallets are delivered to the wrong warehouse. It happens. Other times, they are deliberately removed from trucks during meal breaks and even while drivers are sleeping. When you use GPS tracking for pallets, you can identify the location where the items were taken and track them in real time to aid in the recovery of these items.

GPS tracking for pallets may be a new idea, but it is one whose time has certainly come. Not only can it save businesses a tremendous amount of money in lost or stolen merchandise, but can also help warehouses operate more efficiently when it comes to distributing these items as well.
