At GreenRoad, we like talking to our customers and other fleet leaders to find out what’s top of mind. We do it in person, at industry conferences, lunch-and-learn events and other meetings; on the phone; and even via email or our frequent online surveys.
In one of our recent surveys, we asked fleet leaders in a variety of industries how they feel about advanced fleet tracking technology. We surveyed more than 200 respondents, all of whom are responsible in some direct way for fleet vehicle technology or other major fleet purchases. Respondents represented fleets of all sizes, from fewer than 100 to more than
Among some of the findings we found particularly interesting are the following:
Today’s fleet vehicle tracking options offer numerous benefits, features and options. At the most basic level, you can see where all your vehicles are at any time. You can set up Geo-fences and corresponding real-time alerts notifying you when fleet vehicles are in use at inappropriate times or are in unauthorised locations, or when a driver performs a high-risk maneuver. You can optimise routes for faster customer service and/or minimum fuel consumption. You have a whole host of operational reports helping you to run a more efficient and effective fleet.
Those are just the basics. There’s much more.
