A comprehensive study published in 2018 by the US Business Traveler and Travel Policy report examined how business travelers in the country feel about corporate travel. The study included questions about corporate traveler’s experiences, conveniences, methods of transportation and their organization’s travel policies.

Overall, the group found some interesting trends and statistics. Surprisingly, nearly 55 percent of travelers will pay out-of-pocket for conveniences like upgrades, WIFI, rental cars or hotel rooms.

Saving money was reported to be the most important factor when choosing an airline in only about 12 percent of all cases. Instead, the airline’s schedule was the most important factor for about 29 percent of travelers.

Another interesting finding was that about 55 percent of all business travelers would agree with an employer’s use of GPS tracking while they are away on a business trip. Many of the 45 percent who disagreed with such a tactic argued that GPS tracking devices could result in personal privacy violations. Incredibly, 69 percent of travelers reported that they always comply with corporate policies, and 26 percent said they comply frequently. It’s possible that the corporate traveler’s overall willingness to follow the rules is one reason why they wouldn’t be bothered by a tracking policy by their company.

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.

For some teenagers, taking their driver’s license test can be very stressful. If they fail the test, it can be a huge source of embarrassment and a blow to their confidence. While you can’t retake the test for them, there are some things you can do to help your teen overcome their failed driver’s test.

Help Them Keep Things in Perspective

While your teen may feel like a failure, talk them through this situation and help them maintain a healthy perspective on whole thing. Sure, it may feel like a blow to their future by failing the test, but it’s definitely not the last chapter in their life story. Validate their feelings at first and let them know it’s okay to feel angry, upset or disappointed. Allow them to vent their frustration.
