How GPS Fleet Tracking Enables You to Be Proactive Instead of Reactive

10 Sep 2018

There’s one thing few people discuss when having conversations about GPS fleet tracking. Data. We live in a world that is driven by data today. There’s a reason they call it the information age.

Having access to the right information at the right time can save your business money, time, and improve customer experiences because it allows you to get ahead of potential problems, dealing with them proactively. Proactive management of potential problems is far better than being forced to make reactive business decision after problems manifest themselves.

These are just a few ways GPS fleet tracking can help your business behave more proactively.

Secure Your Assets

Theft is a big problem for many businesses. It’s not just about trucks and trailers, which do need security in their own rights. GPS can be used to help you secure other assets, like heavy equipment (backhoes, forklifts, farm equipment, etc.), electronics, expensive medical equipment, and others.

Expensive items create attractive targets for thieves — especially items that are often unsecured. GPS tracking allows you to track the location of these items and can even send out alert notifications when these items are used or moved during designated sleep hours or taken beyond prescribed geographic boundaries.

Monitor Driver Behaviors

The way your drivers act behind the wheel have a bigger impact on public perception of your business than you may realize. We live in a judgmental society. If people see drivers in your company branded vehicles driving recklessly, aggressively, or poorly it doesn’t reflect well on your business image. GPS fleet tracking monitors driver behavior and creates monthly reports. It can also be used to send alerts when drivers engage in risky behavior behind the wheel, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Hard braking
  • Swerving
  • Fast acceleration
  • Aggressive lane changing

This one small step helps your business avoid tickets, accidents, rising insurance costs, and a poor public image.

Eliminate Fraud

While no business wants to believe employees would defraud you, the truth is they do it unintentionally, at times. GPS fleet tracking allows you to monitor driver locations at all times to make sure they’re not taking an extra half hour for lunch or running personal errands on your clock. It also allows you to verify the information on driver’s time sheets. Sometimes, just knowing that they are being tracked is enough to make them aware of what they are doing and change behaviors accordingly.

Either way, GPS is a proactive way to prevent fraud rather than leaving you dealing with disciplinary actions and employee fallout after it’s been discovered.

GPS fleet tracking offers more than massive cost-savings opportunities for businesses. The above are just a few examples. Imagine what it can do for yours.
