5 Reasons to Look at GPS Tracking for 2012

Posted on the 20 December 2011 by Fleetmatics @fleetmatics

You’ve probably spent a lot of time thinking about how your business will perform in 2012. We all have. We hope you’ve seriously considered GPS tracking in your 2012 plans, but if you haven’t, we’d like to offer some reasons why you should.

  1. Fuel prices: Analysts expect record prices for gas in 2012. Without GPS tracking you could be paying for more gas than you actually need due to excessive idling, ineffective routing, speeding and more.
  2. You’re Doing More with Less: Most businesses have had to trim expenses and sometimes that means trimming drivers/technicians. GPS tracking can help you make your people more productive.
  3. Moonlighting: In a down economy, your drivers/technicians are more likely to seek alternate sources of income. Sometimes that means side jobs with your vehicles and equipment. GPS tracking can help you identify these situations before they become an insurance liability.
  4. Vehicle Theft: Another unfortunate side effect of a down economy is higher rates of vehicle theft. GPS tracking gives you the security of knowing that if someone drives off with your vehicles, you can get them back.
  5. Knowing Where You Stand: More than ever, businesses like yours are fighting for customers. You need an edge on the competition. With FleetMatics Benchmarking you can see how your fleet’s performance compares to others in your industry and what you need to do to get an edge.
