GPS fleet tracking involves the use of signals emitted by satellite to track down the position of fleet. This tracking and monitoring insures the safety of the vehicle.
Tracking of a fleet is necessary to make sure that every works just the way owners want and every thing goes according to the plan so that maximum profit can be generated.
Maintaining of vehicle is also important as the whole fleet business completely depends on the vehicle it possesses. If they stop working the business goes down. Tracking technologies like GPS (Global Positioning System) make sure that the vehicles are in right condition and keeps the manager up to date about the condition of the vehicle.
GPS fleet tracking technology records all the data related to vehicle with the GPS device installed in the vehicle. It also displays all these data in the system of manager and owner with the help of some software.
Operational cost has always remained an issue of concern for the fleet owner and manager. They try hard to minimize this cost in any way possible. Operational cost includes fuel usage and overtime mainly. Both of these can be brought down with the help of GPS tracking technology. If the driver knows that he is being watched he will work on time and the idling time will be reduced, deliveries will also be made on time and hence the overtime of driver is less. Then this technology also helps in finding the most efficient way to the destination, it helps avoiding the traffic, and driver can take the shortcuts, all these add up in reduced fuel usage.
Vehicles present any where in the world can be tracked by manger and owner of the fleet even when he is sitting in opposite corner. This not only insures safety but also gives them an upper hand on all the work that goes down in the field. As they are not physically present at the field but still can make things work in the way they like.
