Many companies offer company cars to employees for a variety of reasons. Some consider them positional perks. Others offer them as a way to improve visibility and build their brands. Whatever reason your business offers company cars, GPS car tracking provides you with an attractive set of options for protecting that investment and making it pay off big for your business. These are just a few things you can use GPS vehicle tracking in company cars to accomplish.

Improve Customer Service

You better believe that when employees know they’re being closely monitored they are going to be more mindful of schedules, timeliness, rules, and regulations. If you have any doubt, think of how much slower traffic moves when there are police cars in the area. It may not even be a conscious move on your employees’ parts, but they will be far more attentive to moving things along for your customers if they know you can keep an eye on their progress remotely. This works no matter what business you’re in: sales, insurance, deliveries, etc. Customer service improves when GPS is used to track your drivers.

Encourages Safer Driving

If your company cars are branded, your drivers are representatives of your business every time they get behind the wheel. Without GPS tracking, you can only hope that they are driving right to safeguard your reputation and good image among other drivers. With GPS tracking, though, you can receive notifications when your drivers do things that jeopardize your image, like speeding, swerving, cutting people off, hard braking, etc. That allows you to deal with the situation promptly so that drivers understand this isn’t acceptable in your company vehicles.

Enhances Record Keeping

Not only is GPS tracking excellent for helping you keep better records related to mileage and fuel efficiency, but it can be instrumental in helping you to have more efficient record-keeping when it comes to things like billing, payroll, creating expense reports, and scheduling vehicle maintenance.

These benefits are, of course, in addition to the many benefits all businesses receive from GPS fleet tracking like maintenance scheduling, more efficient route planning, fuel conservation, reduced labor costs, lower auto insurance premiums, emergency rerouting for weather, traffic, and other emergencies; turn by turn directions for drivers, and countless other large and small benefits only GPS tracking can deliver.

GPS tracking can even be used to help drivers retrace their steps to find missing packages. What you need to know now, is when you’re going to incorporate GPS tracking into all your company cars?

The eastern quoll has been extinct on mainland Australia since the 1960s. New efforts are currently underway to bring these marsupials back to Australia’s shores. The small creatures, roughly the size of a small domestic cat, will be reintroduced into the wilds of Australia beginning in autumn 2018.

Once abundant on the mainland, the eastern quoll has been considered extinct on both the Australian mainland and in the wild since the 1960s. Populations at this time were diminished greatly by a curious epidemic that killed off substantial numbers of their population before foxes and predators killed off the rest. Today, they are only found naturally in Tasmania.

This time, though, the quolls will have a quite a few eyes watching and monitoring their progress to, hopefully, avoid another extinction level event for the small creatures. These efforts will be largely aided by the use of GPS tracking collars that will be attached to the quolls before they are released.

These collars allow researchers to track the quolls, so they can know where they quolls are located, what kinds of habitats they’re living in, and how they are reacting with other quolls. Attentive monitoring also allows research to learn more about what types of landscape offers the best protection for these creatures and how to keep their predators, like foxes and feral cats, at bay.

Why are quolls so important that Australia wants them back? According to Canberra Times, quolls are considered ecosystem “regulators”. They eat a variety of insets and small mammals, keeping these populations under control.

The key for making this project successful lies in giving quolls their best shot at survival. This means offering habitats that foster success, limiting exposure, at least initially, to predators, and providing them with the tools they need to flourish. Fortunately, we already know the eastern quoll can survive in the Australian landscape – as they have done so in decades past.

The project to track the quolls is being largely financed by crowdfunding, which has currently only raised the funds for 13 of the 20 trackers needed to sufficiently track the first round of settlers. Only time will tell if this effort to repopulate a once extinct creature on the Australia mainland will pay off, but it offers stunning scientific possibilities of successful.

You’ve probably heard that GPS fleet tracking offers many benefits to a wide range of businesses. What you may not know is that garage door repair services, just like yours, can benefit greatly with the addition of GPS fleet tracking services to your vehicles. These are just a few of those ways.

Optimize Routing for Greater Efficiency

Routing is one of the biggest challenges you’re going to face daily in your business. What can take painstaking hours to plan out when working routes by hand can be done in a matter of seconds with GPS tracking and with more efficient routes for fuel economy and for your drivers’ time. GPS fleet tracking can even be used to find the most efficient routes for last-minute add ons in your garage repair schedule too.

Improve Customer Satisfaction

You know, better than anyone, that when your customers call for service, they want it now. Garage doors provide fast access to people’s homes and countless items they value. When their doors aren’t working effectively, they may face new challenges keeping unwanted people from seeing into their garages or even entering their homes. It’s understandable that they want their garage doors repaired fast.

GPS fleet tracking allows you to provide accurate garage door repair appointment windows, so your customers aren’t waiting around all day for you to show up at the last minute – and so that your customers can make plans around the time your repair men and women will arrive.

Encourage Safer Driving by Drivers

Your drivers represent your company when they are on the road. If they drive aggressively, cut people off, or operate vehicles at unsafe speeds, it reflects poorly on your business.

GPS tracking will not only track their behavior behind the wheel, so you can monitor it, but you can also set up notifications that will message you instantly if drivers are speeding, hard braking, swerving, and other actions that indicate aggressive or dangerous driving. This allows you to address the problems immediately and safeguard your good reputation.

The little things, like these, can make a huge difference in your garage door repair reputation as well as how much money you earn from month to month. GPS fleet tracking can help you improve all these things while assisting you in improving vehicle maintenance routines, cutting fuel costs, and reducing unnecessary overtime.

And most of all, it can help you to build a larger base of satisfied customers who will not only use your services again someday, but also recommend you to their friends.
