One of the biggest challenges for any Fleet management company is to manage their routes for pick up and drops, be it for their employees or for any type of commercial goods. The fleet owner/ manager would always want to make the maximum utilization of their vehicles while they are out for pick up or delivery. So the route has to be designed in such a way to help the fleet owners/ managers achieve their goals. Our Fleet tracking system helps the users make the most productive/ efficient use out of the vehicles in a fleet, our system uses the advance GPS tracking devices and mobile and web tracking solutions to help users know where exactly their vehicles are at any point of time from anywhere they want to find out the vehicle’s location. Users can easily find out how far is a cab from its destination? Is it currently on route and running on time, or it has stopped somewhere due to any reason? Is there heavy traffic not allowing its movement? With our Fleet tracking system, a fleet owner/ manager can find out immediately where any vehicle is. With this information and our system helps the fleet manager in providing the estimated time of arrival and share more precise information with those expecting a pick up/ drop or service call.
Detailed location tracking gives a fleet more efficiency — it can serve last-minute or unplanned requests from customers, locating the closest vehicle for response in the least possible time.
Fleet tracking system also allows the fleet owner/ manager to manage changes in route at any time on the trip, and communicate this seamlessly to the driver. This enables vehicles in your fleet to avoid traffic jams, any roadblocks or bad weather. Improved route optimization leads to shorter drive times and increased efficiencies.
Efficient route optimization with better fleet tracking system not reduces fuel consumption by shortening distances but it also saves on fuel costs by avoiding heavy traffic jams it can save by decreasing engine idle time and fuel wastage. Live location and traffic updates helps the users to revise routes based on real-time information, traffic patterns, and weather conditions, it can reduce maintenance costs by decreasing exposure to conditions that promote excessive wear and tear of vehicles, like bad weather and heavy traffic. This can extend the life of vehicles and lower the time between service intervals and it further helps to lower the chances of unforeseen breakdowns.
GPS Fleet tracking helps fleet owners/ managers to record data of their drivers by the events such as speeding, harsh braking, rapid acceleration and sudden cornering with the help of GPS devices. This information can prove to be really helpful to evaluate driver performance and improve their driving performance by individual tracking and guidance which further improve their driving skills and it also helps in saving costs. GPS data analysis helps in promoting safer driving habits in personal use and in fleet management operations.

Any tow vehicle, repair truck, law enforcement or emergency medical assistance can reach out or connect with the driver and vehicle immediately.
GPs tracking system proves to be life saver in bad weather conditions; this may compensate for lack of visibility or any kind of damaged visual reference points, Since GPS relies on electronic data provided by GPS devices through satellites and GPRS therefore it is not affected by darkness, poor visibility or lack of familiarity with the area.
The very basic use of any GPS device is to share vehicle’s Live location, Which is also an very important feature to organizations that use a fleet of vehicles to meet their supply chain and transportation needs of business.
