You were sold the idea that vehicle tracking would help you monitor your fleet/drivers and cut operational costs. You are now planning to buy and install a GPS Vehicle tracking system for your vehicles, and you realise that it is a significant investment and it should be 100% worth your money.
If this sounds familiar, you are not alone.
GPS vehicle tracking system can be an extremely valuable tool, but it depends on the system you choose to work with. A well-developed system will give you the data and fast access to operational intelligence in order to help your fleet operation stay competitive.
Such a system would help you create real-time mashups with live data in order to view important indicators in real time.
Then, how do you decide what to buy? Well, it turns out you would need to look out for the following points before you make that important decision. It would not only save your investment but would propel your fleet operation to new heights also.
Fleet owners often have been fooled (by some of the GPS tracking vendors in the region) mainly due to lack of awareness.
These vendors seem to find ways to get prospects (vehicle owners) to their net, sell them on a GPS tracking device at a low price, and then change the rules when support calls arise. They also offer cheesy GPS vehicle tracking software platforms that do not solve real fleet operational challenges.
We’ve heard of horror stories of the types (GPS tracking service providers) who woo fleet owners, make a sale at a low price and then disappear.
Managing fleet is like herding cats. Many of the tools available in the market (Vehicle tracking software) are pretty basic, and nearly all of them focus on just one challenge, i.e., locate vehicles on the map.
None of those tools address real fleet operational challenges faced by the vehicle owners like you.
Take note of these three essential elements while choosing the right GPS vehicle tracking service;
1. Robust GPS vehicle tracking device (Important: Insist on device protocol document too, you might need this if you plan to switch over to a new provider);
2. A well-developed vehicle tracking software that can resolve your fleet operational issues; remember, just tracking the vehicle is not enough; the platform should actually use that information to help you automate your fleet and cut operational cost.
3. An excellent customer service staff.
