GPS fleet tracking can provide a few winter-weather benefits you might not be banking. These are bonus benefits, if you will, that can help your fleet break important barriers when it comes to profit, customer satisfaction, customer retention, safety, and more.

These are a few of the key benefits you’ll want to consider when deciding if GPS fleet tracking is the right choice for your business this winter.

  1. Improved Fleet Maintenance

No one wants to be stranded on the side of the road when the wind chill dips below zero waiting for a repairman to come take care of a maintenance-related issue. GPS fleet tracking helps you stay on top of all your vehicle maintenance needs so that this is a far less likely scenario for your drivers this winter.

  1. Reduced Idling Time

As a fleet owner or manager, you control the areas you want to focus on to reduce fuel costs and improve efficiency. Idling time is a good area to review and GPS fleet tracking systems can help you monitor which drivers are the worst offenders and notify you whenever any driver’s idle time exceeds a certain amount of time so corrective measures may be taken.

  1. Synchronized Local Routes with Snow Plows

Not only will this help you improve the safety of your drivers on the road, but it also helps to reduce vehicle congestion on roads that aren’t exactly safe for driving. This allows you to make necessary deliveries without increasing your risks at the same time.

  1. Tracked Vehicles in Real Time

Not only does this allow you to know where your drivers are for the purpose of dispatch, but it also means you can locate your drivers quickly if they happen to break down or are involved in accidents during the brutally cold winter months. Fast service is sometimes essential for the safety of your drivers as well as the cargo they are carrying.

  1. Safer Driving

Winter months are filled with risks. You can set up alerts through your GPS fleet tracking system to notify you instantly if your drivers are driving aggressively, speeding, swerving, etc. in company vehicles. This allows to address these dangerous behaviors before someone gets hurt.

These are big advantages your business can enjoy by incorporating GPS fleet tracking in all your fleet vehicles this winter. Together they make for a safer work environment, reduce insurance claims, and help you improve profits. There’s a lot to love about that.

The Senior Bowl is the college version of the Pro Bowl. It is a post-season game involving standout all-star players from various colleges. Students are invited to participate in this game that showcases the talents and skills of some of the best and brightest prospects for NFL recruitment.

This season, the Senior Bowl took place on Saturday, January 27, 2018 in Mobile, Alabama. Fans of collegiate football eagerly awaited this one last opportunity to see their favorite college players before they head back to their hometowns or become bright shining hopefuls for the NFL draft.

This year, players sported a new accessory for the festivities in the form of personal GPS tracking devices.

What do personal GPS tracking for sports players do?

They track…well, almost everything.

First of all, they track various stats about each player that professional football teams can use to identify which players might have skills they are deficient in, offer more depth for their lineup, and even have the potential to become standout players and leaders within their organizations.

Some of the things personal GPS tracking for players can measure include:

  • How fast they run.
  • How quickly they pivot and adjust to accommodate resistance from the other team.
  • Vertical leap heights.
  • They can even isolate specific players to look for patterns of play – ideal for finding weaknesses in industry giants or potential among NFL hopefuls.

One interesting thing about GPS tracking for players is that it can also be used to help the NFL improve safety for all players.

The bottom line is that GPS gathers a ton of useful information and data that can be mined for important nuggets of information like safety improvements, performance enhancements, coaching opportunities, and potential weaknesses in other teams and their own.

The NFL is a multi-billion dollar industry. GPS tracking for college players participating in the Senior Bowl allows recruiters, coaches, and organizational leaders identify players they find attractive and want on their teams.

While you may not be able to recruit these impressive athletes to work on your team, you might have enjoyed watching them, one last time, on the gridiron by watching this talent-filled game on the NFL Network. And if you paid close attention you might have seen the powers behind the scenes get excited about the information these GPS trackers reveal about the players on the field.

GPS tracking is showing up everywhere these days – including an action-packed railroad flick starring Liam Neeson. “The Commuter” promises theater audiences a suspense-filled ride as mystery woman, Joanna, makes dangles an attractive character in front of cash-strapped family man, Michael MacCauley, played by Neeson.

It was the perfect storm of events for MacCauley who had just become the victim of corporate downsizing and was facing a long ride home aboard the same commuter train he had taken for 10 years.

The carrot?

Neeson is tasked with planting a GPS tracking device on one of the passengers, one who doesn’t belong, on his commuter train before it makes his final stop for the day. The payoff for doing so is $100,000. There is an envelope with $25,000 cash in the train’s bathroom to serve as a down payment. If he takes the cash, he is agreeing to do the job.

The problem?

Of course, there’s a problem, it wouldn’t be a great Liam Neeson film otherwise, right? Well, the task isn’t quite as straightforward as promised.

While the task is as much physical as psychological with Neeson taking a few punches and landing a few of his own, the taskmaster disappears from sight and threatens MacCauley’s while sending electronic messages and threats should all not go as planned.

In fact, (spoiler alert),  it ends up with MacCauley being framed for all the carnage that takes place on the train and a train wreck of a climax (no pun intended).

For people who take films seriously and want a compelling story and in-depth plot, this may not be the best fit for you. However, if you’re one who prefers plot lines thin and action heavy, then you’ll love the fact that this movie has more twists and turns than should be possible on a commuter train from New York.

Fortunately, GPS trakcing is there to save the day if anything goes wrong. While many would argue that Liam Neeson is a big name and a huge draw for this film, others might state that Joanna’s shoes stole the show – despite their oh-so-brief appearance. Perhaps they should have garnered a little GPS tracking love, so every woman can have a pair for herself.

This technology can be used to track a variety of people: from GPS tracking for teen drivers to GPS tracking dementia patients, and even GPS tracking for children who have certain illnesses and tendencies to wander. Fortunately, most GPS tracking situations don’t come with the degree of violence witnessed in “The Commuter.”-
