Operational cost effectiveness
By integrating organization’s fleet fuel purchases and matching it with real-time vehicle locations, fleet managers are able to verify fuel usage. With GPS tracking, the number of stolen vehicles is reduced.
It allows setting up custom maintenance alerts for regular tire or engine check-ups. Since GPS devices are powered by the vehicle engines, low battery conditions can be easily detected.
Fleet managers can view reports to see which vehicles are stagnant for a long time, so they can coach drivers to prevent their vehicle idling behaviors. Additionally, alerts are triggered when drivers are engaging in unsafe driving.
Vehicle safety and compliance
Using the GPS system, safe road routing, efficient vehicles maintenance, and real-time driver coaching, fleet safety is ensured. It also helps meet compliance standards through driver behavior reporting, vehicle maintenance, and hours of service logging.
This involves moving products or services as quickly as possible to market vendors or customers. Through asset utilization, the system alerts which vehicles can service customers in real-time as soon as they become available.
