It's a new age where GPS trackers are helping fleet business owners overcome many obstacles. Many fleet business owners already know that GPS trackers are helpful to their business by making field processes easier to control, but they may not realize that these devices have the capability of making invoicing better, too. US Fleet Tracking lists 4 easy ways invoicing is better for businesses that use GPS trackers.
1.) Easier Billing: Decent record keeping can be tedious and take up a great deal of time. These records are a vital part of any fleet business' ability to generate invoices. Imagine what would happen without timekeeping? The invoices would be mere guesswork. Thanks to GPS trackers many fleet businesses have automated information to pull from. Billing is made easier when the time stamp is automatic and no one has to second guess the math.
2.) Paper-Free System: The management and accounting department aren't the only ones that are thankful for paperless records. The drivers don't have to worry about carrying around hefty log books. Plus, everyone with access to the GPS trackers' system can input notes for all to see. Manual logging could never compare as digital notes don't have the same potential to get lost in the shuffle of the day's work. Invoicing isn't a chore when the accountants have the data of dated, timed stamped actions, like clocked work time, at the touch of a finger.
3.) Deter Disputes: There is less arguing with GPS trackers, because they make invoicing easier on everyone involved. The nice part about GPS trackers recording everything is that if a client questions the invoice, there is proof that the work was completed. The GPS tracker reports show a timestamp proving how long it took for work to be completed. Managers and the accounting team are able to know every location visited, when they were visited and how long trucks stayed on location.
4.) Informational Reports: GPS trackers have reports for just about everything imaginable. For example, idle times, labor time, vehicle usage, maintenance, fuel usage and vehicle condition. These are all important aspects for a fleet business which needs to be taken into consideration when determining what pricing should be in order to make a profit. In this way the GPS trackers' reports are also tied into invoicing.
Sometimes, the traditional methods of ensuring accuracy can be time consuming leaving a business stuck without payment for several weeks. Without GPS trackers management may be stuck dealing with the tedious task of digging through paper log books from drivers' records. To avoid getting trapped in the trenches of inefficiency, consider adding GPS trackers to the list of must-have items for the future.
