Choose Commercial GPS Systems With The Right Options

February 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

Commercial GPS systems can be a significant financial commitment, which means you should be sure to get the most bang for your buck out of your purchase.

With today's cutting edge technology at their disposal, today's commercial GPS systems do more than simply provide real-time mapping assistance. Because of this, it is necessary to have an understanding of what options you may have available so you can get proper value for your investment.

Of course, any good tracking system is only as valuable as its tracking ability. The first and most important thing to consider with any set of units is their ability not only to consistently transmit an accurate real-time location, but to also provide proper, up-to-date maps for the trucks themselves as well as for the dispatchers operating them.

With that in mind, one of the most beneficial and potentially important things any good system should do is to be able to stay up to date on potential issues with traffic and weather. This should allow drivers to be able to be automatically re-routed around potential hangups to avoid significant delays in transport and ultimately in delivery as well.

An added bonus on this front for many commercial GPS systems is having a communication system included as well. While not necessarily a common feature, some units allow point-to-point, hands-free voice communication between driver and dispatcher to allow for the helpful and effective exchange of real-time information.

Another thing that good commercial GPS systems should include is the ability to input and maintain a database of daily route logs. Because most, if not all, companies that operate a fleet of vehicles require operators to complete logs on a daily basis, being able to have this completed and cataloged electronically can safe time, energy and frustration when it comes to keeping everything up to date and organized.

Finally, a good fleet tracking system should run software that is able to be easily and readily updated. This can include maps, sources of real-time alerts, log information and other material that can change on a frequent basis and must be updated in order for it to provide real help to the user. This is especially true of the maps, which are constantly changing and must be up-to-date at all times to avoid significant issues with transportation and route planning.

By keeping all of these important facets of commercial GPS systems in mind, it can be relatively easy to find the type of system that is right for your company. At the same time, it can also help you determine which features are more important to your bottom line than others.

Selecting the right commercial GPS systems can be the difference from breaking even with your fleet and having long lasting success. Find out what system works for you by visiting
