GPS Trackers Optimize Business Efficiency
GPS vehicle locator technology refers to the combination of a GPS-enabled device on a vehicle or fleet of automobiles that communicate with the GPS satellites orbiting the Earth, and the use of satellite tracking software to gain remote or later access to driving activity and vehicle location(s). This modern form of vehicle tracking allows businesses, consumers and government agencies to collect data from automobiles or equipment operating in the field that can be evaluated for productivity, safety, accountability and more. This information is viewed over a digital street mapping program, text report program or superimposed over a geographical satellite program such as Google Earth or Microsoft Virtual Earth. This information includes:
- Time a driver departed from a particular area/region/address.
- Time a driver arrived from a particular area/region/address.
- -Vehicle speeds an employee, teen or other person was driving at.
- Duration of time en route.
- Stops a driver made.
- Maximum speed a driver reached.
- Exact mileage driven to the hundredth of a mile.
- An assortment of vehicle data such as idling time, when maintenance was last performed, if the automobile has its lights on and more.
GPS Vehicle Locator Users
Over the past 10 years there has been a boom in both the GPS navigation and GPS tracking industries. Today, it is common to see vehicles equipped with navigational devices that offer turn-by-turn directions, but it has been even more common to see businesses grow and reach the pinnacle of their industry due to the help of vehicle tracking devices. Having the ability to access the complete driving activity of employees working in the field gives any business a competitive edge. Businesses can eliminate unnecessary fuel consumption, employee side work and unauthorized company automobile use all while improving route/vehicle management, employee productivity, safety and customer service. Here is a short list of some GPS vehicle locator users:
- Cities looking to improve urban public transportation.
- Businesses in the need of a tool to reduce excessive idling and fuel consumption.
- Parents concerned about the driving safety of their newly licensed teen drivers.
- City snowplows looking to make certain every road has been cleared.
- Companies wanting to eliminate employee moonlighting.
- Law enforcement agencies looking to conduct surveillance operations.
- Anybody with a need to document mileage.
- Anyone with a need to monitor driving activity.
Businesses, consumers and government agencies no longer need to imagine having the ability to access the location of a person, asset or automobile with the help of vehicle tracking technology.
