Heating up with Fleet GPS Tracking

By | Alerts, Business, GPS Tracking | No Comments

The summer heat is nearly upon on us and that can mean a lot of things for fleet managers.

The first thing that the heat can do is increase your drivers idle time.

When the sun is pounding down and the sweat is starting to sink in, your drivers are going to want to keep that cool AC running. This can lead to wasted fuel and it can even damage your vehicle’s engine.

For every half hour spent idling, it’s a half a gallon of gas wasted. Gas prices are steadily climbing, meaning more money lost.

With Smart Fleet’s helpful idling alerts, fleet managers can virtually sit in the passenger seat of your driver’s vehicles’.

Another thing that happens is stress.

The average workday can cause stress on anyone, but add the factor of heat and dehydration and it can amplify it.

When drivers are stressed, it can cause them to speed or drive erratically (short stops, harsh braking, etc).

Smart Fleet GPS Tracking offers a way to manage your driver’s speed and their driving behavior.

The summer brings the heat and Smart Fleet is here to help you battle it.

GPS Fleet Tracking: Helping Dispatchers

By | Business, GPS Tracking | No Comments

Fleet dispatching is one of the most important jobs when it comes to running the team efficiently and effectively.

Giving verbal directions over the phone can be a difficult and often frustrating task. It can lead to wrong turns, confusion, and wasted time and efforts.

With Smart Fleet GPS Tracking, dispatchers can easily send directions to their drivers.

Dispatchers can point and click to a location on a map or type in an address. Once they do this, they can find the nearest vehicle to that exact location. Then, it can alert that vehicle with in depth directions of how to get to that address. dispathcers pic

Fleet Tracking GPS: Off Hour Alerts

By | Alerts, Business, GPS Tracking | No Comments

Smart Fleet GPS tracking offers and abundance of alerts. One of our best alerts for business managers is our off hour alert.

With the off hour alert, you can set up a time frame for when your drivers are allowed to be driving. If they drive anytime past the threshold you give them, you will be instantly alerted via text and/or email.

For example, you do not allow your driver’s to drive the vehicles out on the weekend. If any of your drivers were to drive at anytime during the weekend, you would get an alert.

This allows business owners and fleet managers to be able to easily and efficiently know if their fleet is driving when they aren’t supposed to be.

When your vehicles are moving around when they aren’t supposed to be, you’re losing gas and money.

Off hour alerts can help you manage your team and your fuel, saving you money and overall helping to increase your bottom line.
