A Fleet Manager’s Guide To Fleet Tracking

For those who participated in scouts as a child, they remember that they often carried a field guide to help them to do things like start a fire, build shelter etc. Life would be easier if everything came with a guide.

Luckily, if you are a fleet manager or business owner, there is a guide to Fleet Tracking and its name is InTouchGPS. You can call our training department or support team at any time and they will help define a solution for your fleet related problem.

InTouchGPS is not only a respected provider of GPS fleet tracking devices and services, but even more importantly we are experts in it’s usage. If asked, here are 5 ideas from a collection of experience we would call upon to craft:

The Fleet Manager’s Handbook

1) Have clear and concise goals both directions on the ladder.

If you are a fleet manager, know exactly what is expected of you and what metrics are being used to define those goals. For example- Lower fuel costs is not as strong as lower fuel costs by 3 percent across the fleet within three months. If you manage the fleet drivers- discuss what you are tracking, what you are not tracking, and you and your company’s goals and expectations for each area.

2) Automate. Automate. Automate.

One of the best things about the InTouchGPS system is that it lets you automate so many tasks. Instead of using your time to create tons of data points, simply schedule a report and forget it. These reports can be things such as timecards, first and final movement, trips, and many more.

3)  Create alerts to allow you to manage by exception, instead of pouring over data to see if someone broke the rules.

Speeding, movement, landmarks and working hours are just of the few alerts that you can choose to receive.

4) Use the application to solve your biggest issue and then tackle the next in priority- you don’t have to do everything all at once.

5) There are multiple ways to find ROI through fleet tracking- discover your largest loss and solve.

Think of some of your challenges and discuss with us different ways that you could use the application to come up with a solution.

Fleet Tracking Provides Business Intelligence

Fleet Tracking & Business Intelligence

While many people utilize our application in order to see where their vehicles are, it is just as important to see where your vehicles have been. What business intelligence can you gather from looking at historic trends?

At InTouchGPS we keep all of your data for a full year. Combining the functionality to; easily be able to export any data schedule and automate daily, weekly or monthly reports to be sent to your email; and real time alerts to notify you of driver behavior.  Our application is a veritable house of information.

Don’t let this intimidate you. The way it is structured was purposefully meant to be very easy to navigate through. The first step of any journey is first determining where you want to go or in this case what information that you are looking for.

Here are three issues that business intelligence from Fleet tracking allows you to solve:

1)      Customer Complaint of Lack of Service- Fleet tracking allows you to count for your drivers whereabouts – every minute…And in turn you can report to the client with irrefutable evidence that your people were where they said they were.

2)      “Case” for or against employee. You can showcase great habits of a certain driver for merit or bonus or if necessary for HR , show just cause for termination or use data to create an appropriate program plan with behavior evidenced on system. ( Ie Speeding routinely)

3)      America is land of laws and regulations. Driver and fleet audits are becoming more and more routine. If ever necessary, fleet managers can go back and show proof of compliance, vehicles history, maintenance history and other historical data artifacts.

Managers can now look at the long view in order to establish trends, route inefficiencies, driver performance and other aspects that allow them to become better at their job.

Fleet Tracking For Start-ups

Fleet Tracking and Start-Ups

The start-up company is the epitome of the American dream. Take an idea and finally have the resolve and dedication to make it happen. The challenges of a start-up are different than a second stage company and completely different than a mature company.

The largest difference between the stages these companies are in is often cash flow. While profitability is incredibly important, the compliment to it- reducing costs- is equally as important.

Fleet vehicles are the backbone of so many types of companies- from service industries, to construction, energy, telecommunications and so many others. Cutting costs related to these fleets is a quick way to increase your bottom line.

Fleet Tracking

GPS Fleet Tracking allows for the ability to reduce operating and fuel costs while providing the insights that can help your business increase productivity and safety.

Business Intelligence gives you the knowledge about what is really going on in your fleet and with this knowledge the power to quickly make decisions and changes that affect your fleet.

The ROI gained through fleet tracking is powerful. Fleet tracking becomes a force multiplier and can be the defining factor between a start-up company failing or thriving.

Fleet tracking software is an investment that will prove its worth and continue to cut costs as your small business or startup grows.  As you grow, the ROI of fleet tracking grows as well- often exponentially instead of linearly.

Discover what fleet tracking can do for your organization by contacting InTouchGPS today.
