GPS Tracking To Help You Find Your Way

February 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 189

Fitting a GPS Tracking system helps Fleet Vehicle Managers offer assistance in a number of different ways. These small unobtrusive devices can be programmed to give real time feedback as to a vehicles exact position or save predetermined information, such as speed, direction, stopping times etc to a memory chip to be analysed later.

The use of GPS devices for monitoring and controlling fleet vehicles such as courier services, haulage companies and taxis provides an excellent way of effectively using your vehicles. At any one time you can predict with pinpoint accuracy where your van, lorries and cars are situated.

Along with enabling more efficient use of your resources, you are able to offer customers a more reliable and personalised service. They will not be left wondering when the taxi will arrive or do they need to take the day off to receive a parcel, as you are able to give them accurate advice as to where your vehicle is currently situated.

A further beauty offered by GPS trackers is the ability to offer drivers advice concerning traffic chaos, inclement weather or road accidents. Today's ever changing weather can be very unpredictable and seemingly more severe than at previous times. Drivers will benefit from being given additional information concerning flooded or blocked roads, areas to avoid in the event of blizzards and should they find themselves in the heart of the storm, you can show them the best way out.

Breaking down or getting lost is one of the unavoidable joys of driving and when this happens you can often find yourself in strange territory. Especially with haulage drivers, delivering to unfamiliar addresses. Despatch offices can figure out exactly where a stranded driver is and direct repair and rescue teams to the area or if the weather suddenly turns nasty they are able to give drivers directions to service stations or rest points where they can wait out the storm.

During distressing times GPS tracking can alleviate the worry and frustration a stranded driver can experience and reassure them that mechanics are on the way in the event of a breakdown.

The price of this assistance is relatively small and Fleet Managers are able to access their vehicles position by simply logging on to the Internet, through a normal desktop PC, although systems are also available that work on mobile devices and laptops for managers who are constantly on the move. With a GPS tracking system you never need to worry about knowing where your drivers are, no matter what the weather conditions are outside.

Alex is rather ashamed to admit that he has a tendency to get lost and he has hence invested in a GPS tracking device as well as a fleet tracking solution for his company.
