All you need to know about vehicle tracking

What is vehicle tracking?

Jump to content

Vehicle tracking works by combining automatic vehicle location programming with software that is able to collect and maintain said data. Its triple function of acquiring, storing and, ultimately, processing location data allows trackers to get a vivid under­standing of where a vehicle is located, all in real time.

By delivering real-time and historical locations of the cars, vans or trucks in a business’ fleet, vehicle tracking solutions help the fleet manager to both manage their workflow effectively in the moment and take better informed action to improve it in future.

What is a GPS vehicle tracking system?

Jump to content

Vehicle tracking by GPS works just as the name suggests. Using a global positioning system, users are able to monitor fleet vehicle locations as it relates to their geographical location.

Depending on the nature of the tracker device, the registered information may be stored internally or broadcast in real time to a cooperating program. Some GPS tracker devices use cellular data (such as those found in most contem­porary smartphones), while others use satellite signals to store and project the information.

Satel­lite-managed GPS tracking systems require no phone service to provide real-time updates. Consequently, they are well-equipped to handle more challenging routes in which acquiring a signal is a rare and unlikely occurrence. In either case, however, GPS systems are dependably accurate.

What is vehicle tracking software?

Jump to content

Vehicle tracking software helps fleet operators track their whole fleet of vehicles, down to an individual truck or van. Such software can be used as a compre­hensive fleet management solution, since it provides all the data needed to run a business efficiently. Fleet managers can, for example, stay on top of maintenance schedules as much easily as monitoring vehicle locations.

How does vehicle tracking software work?

Jump to content

Vehicle tracking software enables businesses to analyse their fleet data effectively. It processes your vehicle location data and driver behaviour information, making it available to your fleet management applic­a­tions. Vehicle tracking software works in real time, so you can draw accurate insights about your operations 24/7.

Why implement a vehicle tracking system in your fleet?

Jump to content

When it comes to fleet management, the benefits of a vehicle tracking solution are many. Vehicle tracker devices, allow fleet managers and supervisors to track and localize where their drivers and cargo are at all times—a very helpful feature for handling unexpected situations and a powerful tool for ensuring some of a business' most valuable resources are kept secure, safe, and in good condition.

Vehicle tracking systems can also help you set more accurate estimated times of arrival, partic­u­larly if the solution you are using offers accurate traffic information. With that function­ality, you can adapt to unexpected jams and alert your driver to alter their route.

A reliable vehicle tracker solution can also provide proof of delivery, if required, while also giving you insights into how much time is being spent with customers.

Driver commu­nic­ation and performance evaluation are both also improved by vehicle tracking. For example, a vehicle tracker solution could provide insight into how drivers are behaving behind the wheel that can be a good basis for focused coaching and improve­ments.

Vehicle tracking can also help with route planning. It could provide insights on how to select faster, more efficient routes in future, or guarantee that drivers are remaining within compliance as it relates to laws dictating how many hours they are permitted to work consec­ut­ively in a single shift.

In short, the service allows a level of fleet oversight never before realized by legacy techno­logies.

What are the benefits of tracking and tracing for your business?

Jump to content

Tracking and tracing previous trips your vehicles have made is a great way to identify where savings can be made, and greater levels of efficiency can be created in your workflow. A reliable vehicle tracker system will accurately record hours worked and hours driven. Users can also see the historical position of the cars, vans, or trucks, in some cases going back as far as 90 days in the past.

With this information, you can better assess how your fleet is performing and how your resources are being utilized. Patterns and anomalies can be identified in how your vehicles move day to day, so you can make intelligent choices as to how to improve your business fleet.

How much does vehicle tracking cost?

Jump to content

How much vehicle tracking costs strongly depends on the type of plan that you select. Things like the number of vehicles you wish to track will impact the overall cost of your vehicle tracking solution.

However, while there are certainly costs built into adopting a vehicle tracker system, there are also savings associated with the service as well. For example, performance improve­ments linked to increased oversight may save fleets money on mileage, time, and other expenses that are associated with under­whelming efficiency.

How does a vehicle tracking system work?

Jump to content

Vehicle tracking operates through Global Positioning Systems (GPS). To start, vehicles are outfitted with hardware tracker devices that serve as receivers for important satellite signals. Layperson vehicle tracking may not require anything more than a smartphone, while other systems could involve an install­ation of some kind.

The GPS-enabled tracker device remains in constant commu­nic­ation with the satellite while the vehicle is in motion. In addition to including information about the specific location of a vehicle, many tracking systems are also able to furnish other key data points, such as direction and speed.
