Measuring Performance – The Key to Improvement


Visitors: 268

A vehicle tracking system is able to provide a complete variety of the most demanded reports for the day to day operation of vehicles within a company’s fleet. These include location, history, summary, journey route, speeding, idling, working hours and more. The more advanced systems are a lot more flexible in terms of that the reports are fully customisable and can be tailored to suit the unique needs of any business.

Generally for most companies, they do not, and cannot, measure key performance indicators precisely before they introduce a GPS tracking system. But, once they have the tracking system installed and the vehicle performance data is gained and analysed, businesses are able to start making effective changes to get the most out of their resources and increase productivity.

By implementing a vehicle tracking system, businesses are able to highlight areas of strength and weaknesses by using performance reports and real time alerts. Data collection by back office and managers can also be done in real time on their own PCs and even smart phones.

These reports can be highly detailed in specific areas or if the data is too much there are options to choose when a report is made, like when a vehicle moves while it should be stationary or if an engine has been running idle for a large amount of time.

The vehicle tracking reports give direct insight in to the information that you require when it is needed so it can help point you in the right direction and improve the efficiency and productivity of your fleet.

Configure a maximum travelling speed for a vehicle and be alerted to when a driver goes over this limit. View how often this barrier has been broken and pick out drivers who speed regularly, take them to one side and tell them how they can improve, to reduce fuel costs and improve their safety.

Monitor the length of time per stop or call. A good team manager will know how long a service call or delivery should take. Use reports to determine whether the employee is using time efficiently and reduce any unproductive time if necessary.

Be alerted to any unauthorised usage with geofencing, set boundaries in which a vehicle can operate and make sure your vehicles are not straying off course. For example, in the case of a driver visiting his home the manager can create an area around their home address and be alerted when the driver enters this geo fence during working hours.
