GPS fleet management systems are considered best in managing a fleet?s functionality. They have become a great companion of the owner of the fleet, mentor of the manager of the fleet and great side back of the driver.
Managing a fleet is necessary to maintain coordination and discipline in the work and tracking a fleet helps the manager to do so.
Tracking technologies use the radio signal emitted by the satellites to find out the whereabouts of the fleet or vehicle. Then a clearer picture is formed using the signal emitted by the towers that are present near the fleet. This picture is thus then displayed both to the driver and the manger. Driver gets to know where exactly he is and where he has to go, he can also avoid the traffic knowing the surrounding information and can choose the most convenient way to his destination. While the manger also gets to know the position of the fleet and where it is headed, in addition to this the manager can also see the speed of the fleet and route of the fleet. This helps him to have a command over the fleet movement. As the driver knows that they are being watched they try to work quickly and accordingly thus the overtime is reduced and fuel usage is reduced as well.
The most famous tracking technology that is used worldwide is GPS (Global Position System). GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is another tracking technology that is in use of late.
It?s the duty and responsibility of the manager of the fleet that he assigns the work daily to his subordinates and also keeps the record of it. Apart from this he must also keep record of the work that has been completed and that are pending. He must also have the profile of all the drivers that can come handy anytime. He must also maintain all the bill and other paperwork intact for future references and to avoid any lawsuits.
To avoid the illegal or undesirable use of their vehicle all the manager and owner completely rely on the tracking system as they give the accurate and real time information about their vehicle and this can be used to know whether the vehicle has any unusual movement.
GPS fleet management systems are the backbone of a fleet business and form an interim part of it so it must be given adequate respect by the manager and owner of the fleet.
