GPS fleet management solution
Any organisation that needs commercial vehicles to function engages in some form of fleet operations and fleet management. The purpose of fleet management is to oversee all fleet performance and fleet maintenance in order to increase productivity and help a business run as smoothly as possible.
Fleet managers are in charge of fleet operations and might be tasked with responsibilities that include vehicle maintenance, overseeing fuel consumption and fuel costs, driver management, asset utilisation, route planning, and the implementation of programs that increase company productivity and decrease instances of waste.
GPS fleet tracking has been enabling fleet managers to monitor assets, personnel, and equipment of all types since the early 1980s. Advancements in both desktop computer systems and web-based technology in recent decades have made using GPS more affordable and enabled the telematics industry to grow into what it is today.
Being able to track and locate an asset in real-time provides a stream of useful data in many different areas including vehicle usage, reducing fuel costs, determining time on site, predicting maintenance, and increasing productivity. It also benefits drivers by allowing them to transmit forms directly through their device saving time and produces more accurate reporting. GPS is an essential element of fleet tracking and provides location data across a wide range of assets.
