GPS Tracking for School Buses

By | Weekly Wednesday Industry | No Comments

When it comes to busing children to and from school, the main concern is safety.

Where are my children? Where are they going? Why are they late to the bus stop?

Parents are rightfully concerned with the location of their kids and GPS tracking on buses can help ease their minds.

If a parent calls the school, concerned that the bus is five or ten minutes late, you can easily pull up the web-based system and view the buses real-time location.

The system can show you traffic patterns and even provide you with suggested alternative routes.

GPS tracking for school buses is affordable and helps give parents peace at mind.

Here are just a few benefits of GPS tracking for trailer tractors:

  • Real-time location of your trailer.
  • Ability to set up geo-fences around key locations, allowing you to know when your trucks arrive and depart certain locations.
  • If stationary, the vehicle will update the location every 24 hours.
  • Email and SMS alerts are available so you can know when your trucks are moving during unauthorized hours.

Fleet GPS Tracking: Food & Beverage

By | Weekly Wednesday Industry | No Comments

The food and beverage industry’s biggest worry is theft. Every year, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of goods are lost due to stolen cargo, and the perishables that unfortunately expire during the search and recovery process.

Smart Fleet GPS Tracking is the technological solution that allows companies to follow and track their assets and help authorities track the location of stolen goods, saving you time and money.

We offer many alerts, but for food and beverage companies, the unauthorized movement and off hour movement are the most benefical.

Your assets could be stolen by a tow, but with unauthorized movement text and/or email alerts, you can instantly know when your asset is moving even when the ignition has never been turned on.

You can also set up off hour alerts, so that if your vehicles move past a certain time of the day, you can get an alert.

This means that you don’t need to sit behind a computer all day and watch your assets to make sure they’re safe. You can get alerts sent to you automatically, at any time of the day, so you can take action.truck w gps computer

Fleet GPS Tracking for Passenger Transport

When transporting people from one point to another, safety is often the main concern. Whether it be bringing children to school on a school bus, or driving a family to the airport in a taxi cab, customer safety is on the mind.

One of the biggest things GPS tracking offers is the ability to track your driver’s speed.

The last thing you need is for a driver to be speeding through a residential or school zone. Even speeding on the highway can cause a big waste on fuel. Not only can you manage your fleet’s speed through alerts, but you can also manage their speed through daily, weekly, or monthly reports. This allows you to keep your team on track when it comes to safety.

Passenger transport business’s can benefit from Smart Fleet’s GPS tracking by the alerts and reports it offers, to make sure your driver’s are driving safe for themselves, and for the people they are transporting. passenger transport image
