GPS (Global Positioning System) tracking uses satellites to discern the precise location of a vehicle, person, mobile or stationary object. Using this technology, fleet and vehicle tracking GPS software can not only locate a vehicle, but also tell you its speed, check oil pressure and the status of on-board equipment. Similarly, AVL (Automatic Vehicle Locating) can assist you in managing fleets of vehicles. With regards to emergency services, this can be invaluable in calculating the closest vehicle to the scene of an accident, in order to minimize response time.
When combined with integrated software, GPS ensures employee safety, monitors the driving habits of your staff, helps you to determine the most efficient delivery routes and assists in organizing vehicle maintenance schedules. GPS software can notify you when a vehicle has arrived at it destination, but can also alert you regarding any unscheduled stops or travel beyond a designated geographic area. GPS keeps your company communication consistent, 24/7.
