Do you think about installing GPS vehicle trackers on your business vehicles? Although employees may not like the idea that a gps tracker is used to track cars, it has many benefits for businesses.
These benefits include:
Drivers will receive fewer calls and their productivity will increase
It is essential to be able to reach drivers for information about pickups, deliveries and service calls. Frequent calls asking "Where is the driver?" are inefficient and distracting. They can be both distracting and inefficient. Consider how much time you would lose if your fleet wasn't available.
Displaying all company vehicles on a single map can help you save time and cut down on unnecessary calls. Customers can quickly locate the closest vehicle to their location by calling to make an urgent pickup request or to request service. A nearby driver might be able pick up the vehicle if one driver is unavailable. This will increase productivity, profitability, as well as reduce driver calls.
Customers no longer need to be given approximate times by the main office. The main office can see the exact location of any driver and calculate how far they are from customers at any given moment. Businesses can notify customers with 5 minutes accuracy about pickup, delivery or service times.
Your staff will inform customers who call to ask for an urgent item that the driver is only 12km away and should arrive in 10 minutes. This is better than telling customers the driver will be at their house today or at 3pm.
Your speedy and accurate service will impress your customers. This will give you an advantage over your competition and allow you to win more customers.
Safety and Health
Knowing where your field staff is, especially during bad weather, can be very worrying. Another problem is not being able to reach the driver when it takes a while. It is possible to see the location of the driver on a satellite map using the GPS tracker vehicle data. This data can be used for safety concerns.
