For some, the thought of getting started with fleet tracking is like climbing a mountain. From the bottom it looks like a lot of work, but in actuality it’s about taking small steps until you’re nearly running.
If you are still unsure if you want to begin tracking, let’s talk about your business and what makes fleet tracking a necessity.
Maybe you have heard some of the points enumerated below, but largely we’re going to cover how your business improves when fleet tracking boosts your daily productivity.
If they haven’t told you already, your managers are tired of having to manage people who are not in their immediate vicinity. They’re hard to manage.
Managers of remote fleets spend countless hours and energy managing things like timesheet accuracy and daily tasks completed, often this is done manually.
With a fleet tracking solution likes ours at Rhino, your managers don’t need to worry about timesheets and what their employees are doing outside of the office.
Our software records the hours drivers have worked during the day and holds that data for 365 days. All your managers have to do is view, or print the report and all their driver time data is right there.
This saves hours of back-and-forth AND alleviates the curiosity if drivers are misreporting time. An emotional win we cannot put a price on.
The same is true about reports.
Simplifying reports is an important way to save your managers time. They are spending hours looking at jobs and wondering how they could improve, but with no data it’s just a shot in the dark.
Using a vehicle monitoring system allows your managers to focus on what’s most important to them – bettering the bottom line – and it gives them the tools to do it effectively.
There are a few ways that implementing a fleet monitoring system helps your employees, from assisting with the workload management to improving general work productivity.
When you implement a fleet tracking service, your drivers will have a much easier time planning their routes for the day and avoiding any obstacles. ‘
Avoiding delays and calculating the appropriate time to be spent at each job is something our GPS fleet tracking system does for you.
When your drivers start saving 45 minutes to an hour each day and at the end of the day are asking if there is more work to be done, you’ll notice there’s been a spike in productivity.
This opens the opportunity for more business. A boost in productivity means improvement for your business.
Third party, Aberdeen Group, conducted research stating that new users to fleet tracking saw a 7% uptick in productivity when in the first year after implementing. You can read that research here.
It’s not an idea, fleet tracking is a very real management asset that every business needs. It’s time to get out of your head and let the rubber meet the road. Call Rhino Fleet Tracking at 1-800-293-0420 today.
