Theft Recovery

When you think of theft recovery, are you just thinking of recovering a truck, van, or maybe a piece of equipment? You are not alone – that is what most people think. Recovery of those "big ticket" things is a major benefit of having a GPS tracker in your vehicles.

But look at time and productivity as well. These are things that you can't touch or feel but they are are stolen little by little every day by employees. While some workers are stealing time and productivity by doing side jobs, others are doing it unwittingly by simply not moving fast enough.

Customer Invoicing improves by using GPS Tracking

Customer Invoicing

When you have a staff, providing services to customers, scheduling their time efficiently and being responsive to your staff's needs and your customer needs is a significant challenge.  Keeping track of who saw who when and where – especially when it all changes at the last minute – can be daunting. Gathering supporting data for end of the month customer invoicing can be difficult, even for the smallest teams.  For a bigger team it can be fraught with errors.  At the end of the month, determining who was where at the beginning of the month can be challenging and time consuming.   In a manual system, working through customer disputes over invoicing, two or three months later becomes a no-win proposition as memories and information become foggy.  GPS Car Tracking can provide the tools to filter through all of this easily.

IFTA Fuel Tax Agreement

IFTA

IFTA is an agreement between US States and some Canadian provinces that allows members (truck owners) to coordinate all their fuel tax and tax filing responsibilities with their base jurisdiction rather than each jurisdiction where they operate.  This coordination applies to fuel taxes only and does not cover road taxes, weight taxes or similar taxes.  

Monitoring Driver Behavior: The Big 4

Monitoring Driver Behavior: SPEEDING, IDLING, RAPID ACCELERATION, AND HARD BRAKING

The real risk to business owners with deployed fleets is driver behavior. Within driver behavior, there are many facets. Are the drivers speeding or driving erratically? Are they burning fuel with long idle stops? Jack Rabbit starts? Rapid braking? For the business owner, this translates to wasted fuel, dings on their reputation and in the very, very worst case, accidents that damage the owner’s livelihood. By monitoring driver behavior with GPS tracking the risk can be mitigated.

Let's look at the "Big 4" factors in what we in the GPS tracking business call driver behavior.

Benefits of Mower Tracking

A question often comes up with our customers about how to best protect their fleet.  For a fleet of vans or cars the response is rather simple, protect each.  When it comes to trailered equipment, like mowers, chippers and similar, the options seemingly begin to expand. Our recommendation is to take a tiered strategy to security.  One trailer, one truck, several mowers cover them all.  But, the first reaction is that it could get expensive. Is that expense worth it? And how to justify it?  yes, its our belief that is is worth it and that there are several benefits of full coverage that make the whole package make a lot of sense.  This article will look into some of the trade-offs and justifications to mower tracking.

Insurance Claims

Most of the insurance claims in the industries we serve are the result of a theft of property. Loaders, Skid Steers, Hi Lifts, Generators, Graders, are examples of construction equipment that is frequently stolen. Of course, regular cars and trucks get stolen too. Personal items like Boats, ATVs, Motorcycles, PWCs, Golf Carts, and Side by Sides are popular with thieves because the theft is often unnoticed for days. Landscaping companies have been hit hard with thefts of Trailers and Zero Turn Mowers recently.

Driver Behavior

The term “Driver Behavior” is a catch all phrase that has many meanings.  To many, the first thought is speeding.  Usually that’s not the last thought, as it is quickly followed by thoughts of swerving through traffic and then to thinking about the underlying behaviors:  harsh braking and rapid acceleration.  Even idling with the engine running becomes a factor in evaluating driver behavior. As a business owner with vehicles in the field, these aren't random thoughts, driver behavior, and specifically ‘bad’ driver behavior is a pressing business concern.  Its not taken lightly and tools to assess and manage the trends are valuable. Our system provides several tools to help evaluate each of these factors providing insight to allow you to make good decisions: correct the bad behaviors and reward the good.
