GPS Fleet Tracking Small Business

Do you own a small business that depends on fleet vehicles or delivery trucks for day-to-day operations? If you do, GPS fleet tracking will boost your bottom line.

What Are the Benefits of GPS Fleet Tracking?

GPS fleet tracking is a centralized system for keeping track of all of the vehicles you use in your business. Connected to GPS satellites, it can keep track of the location of each vehicle you own as often as every 5 seconds, but it can also do a lot more.

GPS Fleet Tracking Helps You Keep Track of Idling Time

GPS fleet tracking tells you whether each vehicle is moving, idling, or parked. You will know when your service people are left waiting to get inside their service locations, and when your vehicles are stuck in traffic.

GPS Fleet Tracking Automates Driver Logs

GPS fleet tracking automatically keeps up with driver hours for payroll and federal reporting purposes. No more missing pages, no missing entries, no arithmetic errors.

GPS Fleet Tracking Keeps You in Front of Maintenance Problems

GPS fleet tracking can also give you a readout on the mechanical condition of each vehicle. Any onboard monitoring function that shows on the dashboard can show on GPS. If the check engine light is flashing, your GPS fleet tracking system will let your office know. GPS fleet tracking can also monitor fuel efficiency, engine temperature, and tire pressure.

GPS Fleet Tracking Increases Operating Efficiency

GPS fleet tracking systems can tell you when your operators aren’t on the shortest routes to their destinations, and when they take the vehicle outside preset geofencing boundaries. Your GPS fleet tracking system also alerts you to harsh braking, sudden starts, wide turns, and crashes. You can respond faster to help a driver in distress, and you can correct driver behaviors that cost money and cause accidents.

How Big a Difference Can GPS Fleet Tracking Make in Your Operating Expenses?

GPS fleet tracking delivers benefits that are measurable in dollars and cents.

Idling vehicles burn fuel. A delivery van only burns 0.2 to 0.3 gallons of fuel per hour when it’s idling at the beginning of a shift, or when your operator is waiting to be let into a service location or onto a loading dock, or in heavy traffic. But all those hours of idling add up. Correcting excessive idling time can save your company hundreds of dollars every year.

Sudden acceleration, harsh braking, and speeding burn even more fuel. The Department of Transportation estimates that aggressive driving burns 10 to 40% more fuel on city streets and 15% to 30% more fuel on the highway. GPS fleet tracking gives you a date-stamped, geo-stamped record of aggressive driving incidents for every driver. Correcting aggressive driving is roughly equivalent to a $1 a gallon reduction in the cost of fuel.

And GPS fleet tracking can reduce comprehensive and liability insurance costs, improve delivery times, prevent costly mechanical breakdowns, and get you more satisfied customers. GPS fleet tracking usually pays for itself in the first year.

GPS Tracking Can Grow with Your Business

Unlike some other business technologies, GPS tracking is scalable. Once you have the software installed for your GPS monitoring system, tracking new vehicles is just a matter of installing a new monitor in each new vehicle. The benefits of GPS tracking for your bottom line grow with your fleet.
