Top benefits of commercial vehicle tracking 

Vehicle tracking means real-time monitoring of your commercial vehicles on a live map. But it does much more than pinpoint the location on a map. It provides comprehensive reports with extensive data based on which you can greatly improve your fleet operations. It gives you all the tools you need to easily control every aspect of your fleet and have a complete view into your vehicles and drivers. 

Commercial vehicle tracking systems show you a full status of your vehicles; they allow you to make faster decisions, increase productivity and reduce expenses.

These are the top benefits of vehicle tracking and telematics.

Better security for both your vehicles and drivers 

Vehicle theft is an issue many companies are struggling with. Even with great insurance, businesses still incur a great deal of loss in case their vehicles stolen. The most wished for outcome is still the recovery of the vehicle.

Commercial vehicle tracking makes it possible to recover your vehicles as soon as possible. Besides, thieves are often discouraged to steal tracked vehicles. We have had many happy customers and successful recoveries. For example, this stolen Jaguar F-type was recovered in 20 minutes of our asset tracking device reporting in. Check out our news section for more success stories.

In addition, you can set up geofences and be alerted every time a vehicle enters or exits a specified area. You can also get notified every time your commercial vehicles stray from a route or operate outside of business hours.

Use commercial vehicle tracking systems to protect your most important assets – your drivers. Our vehicle tracking systems include a panic button for your drivers. You’ll be immediately notified if this button is pressed and you’ll be able to respond quickly to any kind of emergency with your driver or your vehicle.

Boost fleet productivity and efficiency 

Here are two well-known words for any business – productivity and efficiency. Two areas every business seeks to maximise.

A good commercial vehicle tracking system makes it possible to increase fleet productivity and efficiency by working smarter and easier.

It gives fleet managers visibility into their entire fleet helping them monitor and deploy their vehicles easier and more efficiently. It’ll help them reduce unnecessary miles and improve vehicle utilisation.

Reviewing journey history is also a great advantage. By analysing trip history data, you can identify patterns and improve performance. See how many miles your drivers have travelled, how long they’ve been on site for, how long their journeys took, and a lot of other things about their performance. 

All this data gives you all the information you need to increase efficiency. Also, you get access to all this data quickly and easily in one place. There’s no wasting time to dig for information and put it all together.

Monitor driver behaviour with commercial vehicle tracking 

Your drivers and their driving styles represent your company’s image on the roads. Monitor your drivers’ behaviour and take a proactive approach setting up targeted trainings to correct aggressive driving.

Coaching your drivers for a safe driving style brings many benefits. You’ll save fuel, you’ll reduce vehicle wear and tear and decrease changes of accidents.
