Summary: Many businesses have found that it’s efficient and effective to operate their own small fleet of vehicles when conducting official business. These vehicles can be specially branded, featuring company logos and marketing information, and they ensure that the appearance of the company’s employees is uniform and communicated the same way to each remote client. While maintaining a fleet of corporate vehicles is an expensive enough task, with regular maintenance, repairs, and the cost of liability insurance, it also comes with an added price for many businesses. A good number of employees view their time in a corporate fleet vehicle as merely their free time and, as long as they get to their destination, they’re not concerned with the route, the time in transit, or any intermediate and unauthorized stops that they might make along the way.
Luckily, modern technology has ensured that businesses will no longer have to pair their fleet vehicles and the employees who drive them with a distinct lack of accountability for their routes, actions, and time on the road. These devices can be installed into every vehicle owned by a company, at great bulk discounts in many cases, and they help keep expenses on track. With the knowledge that a GPS tracking system has been installed into a company vehicle, employees will know that wasting time and money is no longer an option when they’re en route to a client’s location.
Remote Tracking via Virtually Any Device with GPS Tracking Systems
The great thing about GPS tracking systems is that they are designed to be viewed and monitored remotely by any company employee with official access. That means that a vehicle’s route, as well as its current location, can be monitored using company computers from the moment an employee has left the office on a client-bound trip. It also means that the employee can be contacted the moment they deviate from the route or report their vehicle as stopped for an extraordinary amount of time. This kind of accountability with have them back on track immediately, and the company will enjoy a relatively significant cost savings in return.
