Fleet Tracking Devices Help Reduce Internal Wasteful Habits
Small businesses have been the driving force of the national economy for decades, and if the current economic woes ever get cured it will likely be from the cumulative help of small businesses throughout the country. However, staying profitable and keeping employees working has become an increasingly more challenging task as consumers are paying off debt or placing money in the bank rather than stimulating the economy through spending. Couple the recent trend of consumers cutting down on spending habits with higher fuel prices and the end result is the creation of an environment where sustaining profitability is nearly impossible for a small business that does not make changes. Unfortunately, discovering ways to reduce internal expenditures is no simple task as it requires outside-of-the-box thinking, and sometimes functioning off the bare business essentials. One tool that is helping small businesses all across the globe better manage and oversee employee activity in an effort to reduce unnecessary spending is the GPS tracker, and more businesses are turning to vehicle tracking system technology now than ever before.
Slashing Business Operation Costs
How much money does a small business lose when their employees misuse company time? How much money is spent on unnecessary fuel consumption when company drivers are not utilizing proper route efficiency? How much wear-and-tear occurs to company mobile assets when employees conduct personal business or side work in company vehicles? What makes fleet tracking systems so unique and perfectly designed for business applications is they give small business owners the ability to erase all of the above described unnecessary expenses through sophisticated satellite monitoring technology. GPS tracking technology can help small businesses by:
- Improving Fuel Efficiency Through Better Route Management
- Extending Automobile Life Through Elimination Of Unauthorized Or Side Work
- Boosting Safety Through Access To How Fast Employees Are Driving
Types Of Small Business That GPS Trackers Can Help
- Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HAVC)
- Taxi Cab Companies
- Airport Shuttles
- Limousine Businesses
- Electrical Contractors
- Any Business With At Least One Mobile Asset & Driver
What Is The Best Business GPS Tracking Solution For My Company?
Finding the best GPS tracker for each individual and unique business is actually a fairly simple task that requires the business owner to answer one simple question:
Does GPS locational data need be accessed remotely live as it happens, or can historical driving data be viewed after a vehicle returns from the field?
Obviously, having instant and remote access to a driving activity can offer improved vehicle security and convenience, but all live tracking solutions, including the SilverCloud tracker, do require a monthly service obligation that some small businesses may view as cost-prohibitive. For businesses working on a tight budget that can not afford the luxury of investment into a real-time tracking solution, passive technology is able to bridge the gap by offering cost-effective hardware and a system that requires no monthly monitoring fees of any kind. The one slight drawback to passive trackers such as the popular GPS Tracking Key Pro (shown in the video above) is that driving activity is not accessible until after the target vehicle returns from its travels. However, on the positive side, passive trackers record second-by-second, do not depend on any form of cellular communication for data transmission and require absolutely no activation fees, service fees or service contracts.
Regardless of what GPS solution a business chooses to select for their personal internal needs (active or passive), GPS monitoring technology can help improve employee productivity while eliminating unnecessary expenses. This is something every business needs to be focusing on as everybody is trying to stay afloat during tough economic times.
