Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) August 26, 2015
Realistically, every business owner relies on some type of delivery service at some point in their business career in order to continue operations. Even personal uses require delivery fleets to do what they do. This puts a lot of pressure on delivery companies to be both fast and reliable. It also puts pressure on management to make sure the business doesn't fail financially. With a delivery business comes the responsibility of keeping vehicles safe from theft, paying off expensive fuel charges and combating false claims from customers, whether it be against the drivers or about reportedly missing products. Luckily, GPS tracker devices can save delivery companies money on all of these things.
1a.) Fleet Responsibility: Keeping vehicles safe from theft
1b.) Solution: GPS tracker alerts can be set up for automation. When appropriate, the alerts can be sent to managers via text or email. For example, when a company vehicle is moved from a designated geofence after hours. Thus, even if a vehicle did get taken it would be much easier to pinpoint the exact location of the vehicle and retrieve it quickly.
2a.) Fleet Responsibility: Paying off expensive fuel charges
2b.) Solution: The GPS tracker software can automatically record fuel usage percentages for analysis. Each GPS tracker also monitors excessive idling, driver speed and other gas-guzzling driving behaviors. Reports generated with this information can help a fleet team to make appropriate changes to prevent wasting fuel.
3a.) Fleet Responsibility: Combating false claims from customers
3b.) Solution: GPS tracker devices are integrated with the ability to keep a running list of inventory items. For a delivery business this is a huge deal! The list can help drivers to keep track of which packages have been delivered safely. The GPS tracker would also have the capability to time-stamp when a driver stopped and a delivery was made. Using this accurate information decreases the likeliness of false claims. The same goes with the previously mentioned recorded analytical data for drivers. With those analytical reports, false claims about how a driver was performing on the road will be easily thwarted.
While managing company fleets is a major aspect of the job, so is maintaining business costs. By keeping vehicles safe from theft, decreasing fuel costs and having the ability to reduce false claims against the delivery company drivers, GPS tracker devices really do save businesses money.
