Who uses these vehicle tracking systems? What type of company can benefit from the implementation of this GPS technology?

What is a Vehicle Tracking System?

  • 1) A GPS vehicle tracking system will consist of a tracking device placed inside a vehicle along with a central server and software that lets the user track the fleet from headquarters.
  • 2) The information is relayed using geostationary positioning satellites that give any fleet vehicle's speed, position and direction of travel.
  • The device inside the vehicle transmits its realtime position on regular intervals at all times. The interval is usually around every one to two minutes depending upon the GPS manufacturer's and owner's preferences. 

Benefits of Vehicle Tracking System
1. Vehicle tracking systems can help to reduce running costs by specifically targeting those who speed and waste fuel. By focussing upon these drivers it is possible to not only reduce fuel and maintenance bills, but to also reduce insurance premiums.

2. By using a system's automatic mileage reminder it is possible to reduce time wasted through vehicle maintenance. In addition, by having a service that ensures your vehicles are regularly serviced means that resale values for the fleet will also be higher. It can also help to avoid penalties for issues such as bald tyres and tax as reminders are clear and precise.

4. Productivity of workers can be increased by being able to keep track of lunch hours, exposing unauthorised stops and breaks and by evaluating the overtime requests of workers. By having detailed information on the whereabouts of vehicles at all times, it is far easier to keep an eye on employee activities.

6. Business owners can find their most productive employees and use this information to implement further training or even a system of bonuses to enhance staff members' work ethic.

8. By having all the relevant information on one screen, those running the software have easy access to answer enquiries rapidly and accurately.

10. By having detailed information on the whereabouts of all employees, business owners are far more in touch with their business operations. Meaning they have greater levels of control over their company.
