5 Ways to Put Management Into GPS Vehicle Tracking

GPS Vehicle Tracking Management

It’s quite easy to argue the positive benefits of GPS vehicle tracking for fleet managers: reduced operating costs, more efficient logistics, increased safety and effective maintenance scheduling. Tracking driver behavior is also a positive benefit but can sometimes be a sensitive topic if the underlying objectives are not properly communicated to drivers.

Currently, GPS tracking technology can detect and monitor vehicle position, braking and speed at all given times. Sudden acceleration, cornering, deceleration, or swerving can also be measured in real-time. The more sophisticated systems, like the Geotab platform GoFleet provides, takes it one step further and can detect seat-belt usage, idling, reversing and usage of auxiliary devices.

In the commercial world, fleet managers can create a strategy including training, positive motivation and policy transparency to ease drivers into the concept of GPS vehicle tracking. The introduction of the GPS system is key, you want to start off on the right foot with your employees and make sure they understand exactly why you need GPS vehicle tracking. For the consumer, insurance companies are offering discount rates to customers choosing to use GPS vehicle tracking in their personal vehicles.

To ensure you are managing your drivers and vehicles, first consider following these steps:

  1. Conduct an internal analysis to identify gaps
  2. Create actionable and measurable objectives and goals
  3. Implement the new program
  4. Watch and monitor the results
