Stay in Control of Your Fleet
One of the major benefits of GPS tracking is that a business can view vehicle progress in real time. Such updates put a business in direct control of vehicles en route, allowing the company to make better decisions and improve customer service.
- Benefits of Real-Time GPS Tracking
Real-time tracking offers vehicle travel information on an immediate basis and, if sent directly to an online software application, this data can be viewed 24 hours a day. A dispatcher is able to monitor vehicles on the ground, spot real-time traffic jams and observe how weather or traffic congestion might be affecting a route.
Tracking company vehicles helps keep drivers honest. Businesses often choose to be discreet about placement of real-time GPS tracking devices so they can get a truly candid picture of how drivers behave while operating vehicles on company time.
Another benefit of real-time truck tracking is that while vehicles are en route, the dispatcher can communicate with customers to provide an accurate time for arrival. The customer can be kept informed of potential delays even before the arrival time.
