This time of year can be quite distracting in itself with all of the holiday glitz and glamour clouding the mind. It seems as though when the holiday season rolls around there’s always so much to do and so little time, but business must go on! When productivity is necessary, yet it feels difficult to jump over the hurdles lining your path, there are a few ways to make use of GPS tracking to help. Today, US Fleet Tracking provides tricks for overcoming two of the top productivity killers plaguing fleet drivers this busy season.
Hurdle #1- Personal Errands: With so much to do for Christmas or holiday get-togethers it may be tempting for drivers to want to make a few personal stops along the way to their job-site locations. This may seem innocent, but these actions take away from the time spent on the job, which means taking more time to complete the job at hand and ultimately decreasing the bottom line due to less work being finished in a day.
Trick #1- Using Live Maps: With GPS tracking every employee’s vehicle, management would know exactly where drivers are, drivers would be less inclined to bend the rules, and productivity would be on course. This can be made possible by clicking into the live map and taking a view of every active unit.
Hurdle #2- Vehicle Breakdowns: When drivers are constantly on the go this holiday season, it may become commonplace to completely forget about or procrastinate on getting regular vehicle maintenance. For example, allowing an extra few hundred miles before getting that scheduled oil change may not seem as if it would be too cumbersome for the engine, but too many instances like this will degrade the engine over time.
Likewise, tire rotations and other under the hood maintenance is important to keep vehicles running at their best. If drivers neglect to have maintenance performed when necessary, this can lead to unnecessary vehicle breakdowns, causing unscheduled work delays, and that puts a damper on productivity.
Trick #2- Using Automated Alerts: GPS tracking data such as mileage can be automatically utilized to set up maintenance alerts. These can be used to help drivers remember when vehicle maintenance is coming up so that they can avoid frequent breakdowns.
