Fleet Tracking Myths Busted!

Fleet Tracking Myths Busted!
September 26, 2018 Chris Fanchi

Fact Vs Myth

Don’t let these myths prevent you from utilizing the benefits of GPS Fleet Tracking.

MYTH

Using GPS Fleet Tracking Devices = Spying.

FACT

Vehicle and asset trackers track equipment not people.  Unlike attempting to utilize a cellphone tracking method, fleet tracking devices keep track of the health, maintenance and location of your valuable vehicles and assets. While they do allow oversight into where your employees are taking your vehicles, the reality is that the vehicle is what is being tracked. As a business owner, knowing where your vehicles are at any given time is reasonable and responsible. This also allow you to know where and when employees are utilizing your company equipment to ensure company policies and procedures are followed.

MYTH

I don’t need to track dots on a map.

FACT

Our fleet tracking devices offer much more than dots on map. Don’t get us wrong – in its simplest form, you get the dots on the map. However, you also benefit from more in-depth information that results in safe driving and decreased fuel costs. Our devices allow you to track information like vehicle idle time, vehicle speed, and hard braking, providing you hard data to help optimize your employees’ driving habits and reduce fuel and maintenance costs.

MYTH

My company is too small to benefit from fleet tracking.

FACT

Whether you  have one vehicle or thousands, our GPS Fleet Tracking devices can support your business. Even if you’re “technically challenged”, our fleet tracking is easy to use and comes with exceptional customer support. You cannot be everywhere and GPS fleet tracking partners with you in monitoring the safety of employees and maintenance of your vehicles. Read more about the benefits of our fleet tracking services in our post that answers the question,  “Do I Have A Fleet?”

MYTH

There is little benefit to the employee.

FACT

Tracking allows you to recognize highly productive employees. By providing employers the opportunity to observe employees who are operating vehicles appropriately, reporting to work and job sites on time, and utilizing company time efficiently, employees can benefit from incentive and award programs. Additionally, by addressing employee misconduct that may be revealed, your most hard-working and productive employees will be encouraged that their hard work is not going unnoticed, nor is other employees’ poor behavior.

MYTH

It takes too much time to manage.

FACT

GPS fleet tracking can be as time-intensive as you prefer. If you like to pull a lot of data and do analysis, that is certainly an option.  However, if you want quick snapshots of daily activity and maintenance concerns, you can customize your usage of the software to fit your business needs and time schedule.

MYTH

Our vehicles operate in remote locations, so data will be missing.

FACT

Our devices conveniently store data when not connected to a cellular network and immediately sync all information when service is back in range.  So, while at times, the real-time data may not be available,  you will still be able to access the information later to identify trends and behaviors.  GPS fleet tracking has evolved tremendously over the years.
