Vehicle Tracking Technology Advancements You Need For Your Fleet
sorts of Australian businesses have their own fleet. From paramedics and healthcare
providers to taxi-cab companies and long-distance truckers. Anyone involved in
one of these industries already knows the importance of a fleet in good working
order. If your cars are off the road you often arent making any money.
all this in mind, technology has become placed at the forefront of the vehicle
provision industry. If you can track the progress of your cars, vans, trucks,
boats or trains, you can analyse the data and streamline your service. Much like
any other business, these technological advancements are there to give us a boost
but what 4 vehicle tracking techs should you be using in your fleet? Lets
Tracking Technological Treats
are the four best vehicle enhancements to help you keep tabs on your fleet.
GPS Vehicle Tracking
With all the mod cons currently available,
each of you ought to have a GPS system in place, already. Take the fully integrated
web-and-app based GPS platform offered by Simply
Unified, for example. Using their new technology you are able to fully track
placement, speed, times and even driver performance
of your cars, trucks, vans
The beauty of their GPS is that you can
apply it to any vehicle you like.
The Black Box
Black box tracking is effectively a lower technology
version of GPS. Truckers are likely to be familiar with the red blinking light
inside the black box, monitoring to ensure they dont break the speed limit
in company trucks. Trackers have come so far in recent years that car
insurance companies have started using them to gauge the safety of new drivers
your firm could be using them in a similar way.
The Wi-Fi Option
Along similar lines to GPS tracking, you can unify
all of your drivers in the same map. Using a dongle or pebble, you can equip your
vehicles with Wi-Fi and ensure they use Google Maps for all journeys. At the end
of the journey, Google maps will record exactly where they have been and how long
for. Its a bit like spying but you are paying for their time.
The Supercar Option
If you go through your fleet, one vehicle at
a time, and upgrade them to the most modern version of themselves that you can.
The technology inside will feature integrated tracking with the intention of user
use. Any modern motor that contains an automated system should include a map-type-tech
of their own. This can be harnessed to keep track of drivers. Using this method,
you might also be able to monitor how the driver used up fuel, how often they
stopped, and the most important question of all whether or not they are
using the vehicle out of office hours.
is the cheapest, easiest option by far. Fitting out ultra-modern vehicles throughout
your fleet is pricey and doesnt guarantee an effective result. One thing
we can all agree on is that drivers perform better when they think they are being
monitored. Other remote workers have video conferencing, after all.
