Where can I expect to see improvement?
It can vary by how the system is used, fleet policies and management. If the
company leaders are unwilling to use the data to make decisions, hold drivers
accountable, or improve operational flaws once spotted using this tool.
ROI requires a commitment to improvements, policies to support the program and
the strength of management to enforce the policies.
The most common areas of improvement include:
Reduced fuel expenses resulting from many different reasons.
Fewer accidents / Lower insurance rates & increased discounts.
Improved employee productivity.
Cut down on regular and overtime wages for the same amount or more work.
Improved maintenance costs with fewer miles, wear and tear and
Faster and more efficient dispatching. Quicker time to respond to customers'
calls. More jobs and happier clients.
GPS tracking can significantly impact workers' comp claims and other insurance
expenses with less speeding, fewer miles, much less personal miles, and more
attention given to driving.
Bringing up "GPS tracking" in the hiring process can scare off potential employees
who may not work a full day once in the field.
You can also hire better employees and retain the "best of the best" long-term. By
saving with GPS and not having unproductive employees, you can pay more for top-
notch employees while still paying less than you would before GPS, giving you the
edge up on your competition.
It is more of an asset than just some business expense or "cost."
