People are a business's greatest asset, and a business is only as successful as the people it keeps. However, what if those employees were moonlighting and taking advantage of your business and you never even knew it? What if employees were falsifying time sheets, driving longer routes, using company vehicles for personal use, or consistently taking longer lunch breaks? Any one of those situations could have an impact on a company's profit margin, especially if the company had hundreds of employees.
So is there a viable solution to improve employee performance, and increase company profit?
Imagine having access to where any employee driver is at while they are in the field 24 hours a day, and having accurate historical records of everywhere they were! All of that information and more can be accessed and observed with a few mouse clicks on any computer at a low cost with the advancement of vehicle management GPS monitoring systems. GPS tracking systems are the fleet management solution regardless if the company has 1 vehicle or 100 vehicles. Fleet management has never been easier!
GPS tracking systems will allow you to observe the status and movement of every company vehicle in the field on a single computer screen anytime, any day! Dispatching a nearby truck or vehicle to a service or sales call instead of routing a company vehicle that is further away or inside the company facility will improve arrival time and customer service. GPS monitoring and tracking systems allow a company to assist customers in a flash!
Tracking systems and GPS monitoring devices make managing vehicles and drivers simple and easy. Operating a delivery or service company has just became a whole lot easier!
If you have an employee who is driving your company vehicle(s) consistently at dangerous speeds and they are involved in a motor vehicle accident, you and your company could be held liable! Drivers who have a tendency to speed can be a danger to not only themselves, but every other motorist sharing the roadways, creating the scene for a potentially hazardous outcome. Tracking systems allow a company to be proactive by monitoring driving habits and shaping them before an accident ever occurs. Setting speed limits on company vehicles and holding employees accountable by having programmed speed alerts allow a company to ensure any employee driver is practicing safe driving habits.
GPS tracking systems are the vehicle management solution that will modernize any fleet of vehicles, making employees more productive and efficient, while reducing fuel costs, unauthorized trips, and liability.
Transportation safety is one the biggest concerns for companies like Greyhound who make a profit from shuttling people all across the country every single day. Although bus accidents are not an overly frequent occurrence, they do occur. This is why many schools and companies have been taking measures to increase safety by investing in passenger and driver safety through the use of GPS tracking system technology.
Unfortunately, bus accidents happen and they can often times have fatal consequences. This statement is constantly reinforced with the numerous stories that make headlines about bus crashes, like the recent story about the fatal accident that occurred in the Sacramento area. The crash, which was a multi-fatality car accident, involved a Greyhound bus driver and other motorists. Although the bus operator's driving record was considered clean, many have questioned whether or not if driving activity were being watched in real-time via GPS technology if the accident could have been prevented.
GPS tracking devices are widely recognized as one of the best methods of increasing driving safety in both the consumer and business worlds. When company supervisors have a tool to audit and observe driving activity on a daily basis they can intervene if they see dangerous driving behaviors before they result in catastrophe.
Driving safety is important for not only the passengers who place their lives in the hands of bus operators, but also the drivers themselves. The old saying is that people most likely to be involved in accidents are new drivers, and drivers who have so much experience they tend to become lazy and error-prone. The experienced driver situation is likely the more common situation that faces most bus drivers, therefore, having someone continuously monitor driving activity could only help ensure long-term safe driving behaviors.
Should Greyhound put GPS trackers on their entire fleet of buses?
Would you feel safer as a passenger if you knew that the bus you were traveling in was equipped with a tracking device?
