HOW IT WORKS
Using a GPS tracking system to manage a fleet involves three basic steps:
1. DATA GATHERING
The GPS tracking device is mounted right onto the engine of the vehicle. A technician can easily perform the procedure in around 30 minutes while some systems can even be self-installed. Once installed, the system starts round-the-clock monitoring of your vehicles systems including such metrics as fuel consumption, mileage, speeding and idle time. You can also mount a similar GPS device onto your fixed and mobile assets operating in the field to monitor their movement while on duty.
2. DATA TRANSMISSION
After it's installed, the GPS tracking hardware automatically transmits vehicle and asset data over a secure wireless network to the providers data center. If the system includes onboard engine diagnostics, it automatically transmits that data as well. Because the data transmission is wireless, the effectiveness of any fleet management system depends in large part on the strength of its wireless network. We offer reliable coverage in most areas, to guarantee that you have a reliable signal and up-to-date information 24/7.
3. DATA ANALYSIS
To access their companies data, fleet operators log into the system providers website via PCs, smartphones, tablets, or other web-enabled devices. Once logged in, they can perform a variety of fleet management activities, including tracking vehicles and assets, setting and receiving alerts, monitoring driver behavior, reviewing reports, and more. Through a variety of screens, reports, and mapping features – which, in some cases, can be customized – the website provides the data needed to make informed decisions to lower costs and improve individual vehicle and overall fleet performance.
When properly implemented, a GPS fleet management system can often pay for itself within a matter of months, turning fleet management from an expense into an investment in the success of your business. The key is selecting the right system to meet your fleet management goals and objectives.
