Entering Third Year of Rising Fuel Prices
I almost burst a blood vessel the first time I ran the ‘Excessive Idling Report’ on my Tracker System. I couldn’t believe how much better some employees are at conserving fuel than others – the ‘Distance and Fuel Economy’ report pays for the whole system each month.
Fleet Vehicle Tracking is an essential tool for today’s operations managers and owners. GPS tracking devices are economical and the return on investment – especially in a time of rising fuel prices- is rapid.
How Long Did It Take To Do The Job?
“I know my technician got to the job, but I wonder how long it took to complete the work”. Those are the words of many business owners. With the availability of GPS tracking devices, it is now much easier to determine where your fleet vehicles are, and to measure the productivity of the employees using them.
Real-time GPS vehicle tracking enables you to see where your vehicles are in real time, view breadcrumb trails of where they have been, and analyze reports that show things like location, time and duration of all vehicle stops. Some systems can even determine when auxiliary equipment is turned on and off.
The Engine's running and The Clock Is Ticking …
GPS vehicle tracking is about more than just location. In many cases, time is more important than location when tracking vehicles or assets. Take idling for instance, the critical factor is to know how long a vehicle is idling. Where the idling was occuring is often a secondary concern. But, whether time or location is important, the data that the two provide in a combined manner is invaluable. Several of our reports, when used separately or together, are instrumental in evaluating idling and the twin GPS data parameters – time and location.
