GPS Tracking Serves All Kinds of Businesses: US Fleet Tracking

By CIOReview | Monday, August 11, 2014

OKLAHOMA CITY: The size of the business does not matter. Whether it is a large corporation or a small mom and pop shop, it can benefit from GPS tracking. A business in the market for a GPS tracking management system needs to be sure that it has done the appropriate research needed to make the best decision for its fleet. Not all GPS trackers are created equally and not all products will include what a particular business might need. Gather as many details about the business fleet as possible before seeking a supplier. This will help to avoid a situation of over-investing in a 15 truck system when the business only has two.

Owners of large fleets will not only want to be tracking multiple vehicles, but also their multiple moving parts, that will need proactive maintenance. Customizing a system that can track and monitor these items will be most beneficial to a fleet and the bottom line. Businesses will want to make sure their dispatcher has access to the needed tools that will guide, track, and inform drivers of weather alerts, road congestion, and maintenance alerts. With a larger fleet, dispatchers will need a streamlined process to cover all the ground involved.

For the fleet that is not large, but still significant in size, having the capability for a fleet to be tracked by multiple team members may be a feature a moderate sized business could benefit from. Incorporating custom dashboards allows individuals to only have access to information that pertains to their job, would be an excellent feature.

Finally, for the small business owner, having a GPS tracker could make life much simpler. Smaller businesses will more than likely, have several employees who wear multiple hats. The more time spent manually tracking a fleet that could easily be done through a GPS tracker, is more time away from other important tasks. Changing this alone could make a huge impact on the productivity of a business.
