Theft of vehicles and other important equipment can be a serious, high cost endeavor that no one wants to have to go through. You will be stuck with having the expenses of vehicle replacement and also pay the price of business downtime. Moreover, you may even have increasing insurance rates. These are just a few reasons why it is so important to monitor your vehicles, trailers, freight, heavy equipment and other assets. Using GPS trackers, you could help protect your fleet against theft.
GPS trackers help you to tackle a number of issues on a regular basis. You may find it challenging to keep up with where your drivers are and what they are doing. With the installation of 10-second live GPS trackers, you will acquire the ability to keep tabs on the vehicles within your fleet. From one dashboard, you will be able to see when your drivers start your vehicles, how long they idle, what speed your drivers are going, and any unauthorized usage. With the open channel established between your dispatcher and drivers your team will be more efficient.
GPS trackers can also maintain a list of your vehicles and other equipment. You can log which vehicles, trailers or other heavy equipment tools are being used and which ones remain behind. You can set-up Geo-fences on a map to indicate where these items are allowed to be used or the location of where they are not to be used. Alerts will keep managers up to date about where their vehicles go. Even in non-business hours, alerts can be set up to inform managers if the vehicles or other equipment tools are being used or are outside of their designated Geo-fences.
By adding a GPS tracker system you could have firsthand observation of your fleet’s whereabouts and the knowledge needed to reclaim your stolen property in a quick fashion. With a GPS tracker you will be watching your assets, which means surveying your bottom line and irrefutably means saving you money.
