  • 4 Reasons Vehicle Trackers are Indispensable to Fleet Management

    In the past decades, vehicle trackers were exclusively thought of as a method of protection against car thefts but that has now changed. It is a fallacy to assume that just because a vehicle is ‘big’, it doesn’t need a tracker and that merely its’ size would suffice to protect it against steals. Trackers these days serve a variety of purposes to not only ensure a vehicle’s physical safety but also monitor the engine performance, fuel efficiency, and on-road habits of the driver.

     

    Costs Control

    Keeping track of your costs and minimizing them is a cornerstone of a successful business but it is especially true for transportation companies. According to some studies, almost 1/3rd of a vehicle’s total annual cost goes to fuel charges so any forward-thinking entrepreneur would want to minimize it as much as possible. By installing HGV trackers in your vehicles, you can keep track of the routes the drivers take to analyze them to work out a shorter route for any future commutes.  It can also help you keep a tab on your vehicles’ CO2 emissions, which could give you an idea when they might be in need of servicing that will restore their fuel-efficiency. In certain jurisdictions, maintaining fuel-efficiency that reduces carbon emissions to a minimum might even hold tax benefits that lower the burden on your books. Using readings and estimates from HGV tracking does not only give you near-perfect emission evaluations but they also give your claims more credibility at the tax office.

     

    Drivers’ Evaluation

    Evaluating an employee’s performance is easy if he works in the same building you do but in a transportation business, drivers work on the highways delivering goods and consignments. To evaluate their performance, a high goods vehicle tracker is the only option available. It can record the drivers’ speed, the routes he took, and the duration and location of each of his stop. Even if he is not getting into accidents or piling up speed tickets, you can look for certain behaviour patterns that serve as a precursor to the looming disaster. This way you do not only avoid a disaster but it also helps keep drivers in check. It sends them a message that they might be able to trick speed cameras but they cannot evade your supervision.

     

    Tracking Goods Online

    Before a manufacturer, wholesaler, or a retailer trusts your service to safely transport their goods, they would need assurances and a way to monitor their location from shipment point all the way to delivery. Using an HGV tracker, you can offer them the service to track their consignments online. Once you have gathered enough data, estimating the date and time of delivery becomes a statistical task, which you can provide to the customers. Along with establishing your expertise and experience, this estimation helps your clients in their dealings with their customers making the whole process mutually beneficial.

     

    Protection Against Thefts

    Most of the times when vehicles are stolen in the UK, after filing a report, owners have to wait for months to recover their vehicles unless they were wise enough to install a vehicle tracker. Installing trackers in HGVs ensures that in an event that they are stolen, the police can track its’ movement. Since most high goods vehicle deliver or pass through remote locations to deliver consignments, it is a good practice to ensure that your chosen HGV tracker covers remote areas as well to ensure full safety against thefts.

     

    Fleet trackers in our age are no longer a luxury, they are a necessity for every business that operates HGVs. Transporters can usually get a discount rate if they choose to install trackers in their entire fleet of trucks. Vehicle Tracking Tech offers solutions from leading brands like TomTom, Tracker, Big Change, and Masternaut.

  • 5 Things to Consider When Buying a Car Tracker

    With the rates of car thefts going through the roof, it is ever so essential to install a car-tracking device in your vehicle. But with so many products in the market, how does one know which one to buy? From costs to the feasibility of installation to ease of use, there are a number of things to consider before you pick a car-tracking device.

     

    There can be no ‘one size fits all’ guide to select a tracker. Your choice will depend on the kind of car you drive, the purposes you use it for, and the areas you travel to. But considering the following will ensure that you don’t regret your purchase.

     

    Can it track remote locations?

    If you have a transportation business and make deliveries to remote parts of the country, it is vital that your car-tracker cover those areas. Failure to do so will keep you from knowing the exact location of your vehicle. Using such a tracker, you can even allow your customers to track their deliveries in real-time. To protect your delivery trucks and their contents, you should make a compromise on power requirements of the device if you have to in order to protect them from theft.

     

    Does it have traffic info?

    If you are a businessman or have an important job, getting caught up in traffic and arriving late at your workplace could be detrimental to your career. For those who value every minute of their day, it is important that their tracking device alerts them of traffic jams and accidents so they could take the alternative route and arrive at their destination in time.

     

    Does it store data?

    There are car-trackers available that work like USBs and display stored information upon being connected to a computer. For businesses that use vans and trucks to provide services, costs of commute could be tax-deductible. An efficient car-tracking device that stores data about each of the trips your vehicles makes it easier to estimate the cost of the commute. You can even use this data to do a fuel efficiency test on your individual vehicles and work out performance levels of each of your drivers.

     

    Does it fit your budget?

    The costs that first go into the purchase and later into the installation of car-trackers can vary significantly. Some vehicles come with a pre-installed tracker so ideally; your choice of a car-tracker should come before your car purchase, not after. If you have a deep pocket, the options are potentially limitless but if you are working on a strict budget, you can select a cellular tracking system instead of GPS to save on costs. However, you should know that cellular trackers do not provide as accurate a location as GPS ones.

     

    Does it provide emergency services?

    Elderly and the young are the most likely to get into accidents. So if you are buying a car-tracker for your parents or kids, you should take into account whether the tracker contacts emergency services after an accident. This will help ensure that your loved ones are protected as well as your vehicle.

     

    Car-tracking devices of today do a lot more than just track the location of your vehicle. Talk to an experienced seller about your preferences and they will help you decide. Depending on your individual circumstances, a cheaper car-tracker might actually be more feasible than a high-end one.

  • Can Car Trackers Help End the Epidemic of Keyless Car Thefts?

    Thanks to the keyless technology, car thieves are no longer breaking into the vehicles. The figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that instances of vehicle theft went up by over 50% in the last year compared to the year before.

    Where just a decade ago, criminals needed to break into the vehicle through a smashed window or a locked door, now they are simply unlocking the door through gadgets and devices purchased through eBay and Amazon. In a lot of cases, thieves use relay boxes that can be bought online to transmit signals from the fob to the vehicle to fool the system into thinking that the fob is in close proximity of the car. The system thus automatically unlocks the car and criminals either steal the valuables placed inside the car such as laptops, phones, jewellery etc. or they just drive off in the vehicle. In instances when the vehicle is not stolen, and only the valuables are missing, it could take car owners days and weeks to realize that items from their vehicle have been stolen, and the figures released by ONS don’t even account for that as a significant number of these car owners don’t even report the thefts to the police since they feel that it’s a little too late.

    It is not just the high-end automobiles such as Mercedes, BMWs, Audis, and Range Rovers that criminals are targeting. Low-end vehicles such as Fiestas are also on the criminals’ radar, which further substantiates the claim that criminals are also interested in contents placed inside the cars as well as the cars themselves. Although the ‘smash and grab’ cases went down, the overall vehicle-related theft went up from 796,000 in 2016 to 929,000 in 2017 due to the vulnerabilities in the keyless technology.

    According to the ONS figures, car thieves are abandoning the past tactics of smash and grab and using lockpicks to enter vehicles; they are keeping up with the modern technology. Although the overall car thefts have fallen since 1995, the transition of criminals from using past tactics to finding potential vulnerabilities in the modern systems is a concern since it provides a relatively safe mechanism to criminals. As modern vehicles today are more costly than the cars in the 1990s, the epidemic of car thefts today could force up market insurance rates. The challenge for vehicle manufacturers is to balance the service they want to provide to their consumers with the mechanism that guards against potential exploitation of their features by the criminals.

    The ONS report shatters any claims from the manufacturers that their vehicles are more secure than ever. Where keyless technology has some advantages for the car owners, it has left them vulnerable to digital savvy criminals to whom stealing vehicles with keyless technology has become child’s play especially given that the ‘steal kits’ are being sold online.

    On good remedy for car owners wanting to protect their vehicles against car thefts via cloned keys is to install Meta Track VTS. It offers top of the line protection for keyless cars. With a driver ID, it keeps close tabs on whether the vehicle is being driven with a cloned key. If the vehicle is started in the absence of the driver ID, it sends a signal to the SOC to send out an alert to you. If your concern is only to protect your car against cloned key thefts, you can attach the driver ID tag to your original keys. This eliminates the need to remember to carry both devices and prevents the system from sending out unwanted alerts to the driver.

  • Car Trackers Needed Urgently as Keyless Cars Get Stolen

    While advancements in vehicle-systems have certainly made our lives easier, huge gaps in security remain to be filled. Experts argue that over the last 2 decades, the technological advancement in auto-industry has been so rapid that not enough time was spent on addressing security fissures. As a result, the focus of the industry has been on introducing new features as opposed to improving the security aspects of features that already exist.

     

    By exploiting these vulnerabilities in car-systems, thieves are able to make off with the vehicles without so much as making a noise. This is what happened to Uraib Asif of Greater Manchester. After a long day at work, Mr. Asif drove home in his keyless BMW, flung the keys on the nearest table and went straight to bed. An hour later, his father who had noticed that the car was no longer parked outside their home awakened Asif. He called the police and let them know that his car had been stolen. As if losing a £17,000 vehicle wasn’t stunning enough, the CCTV recording showed that the thieves were able to pinch the car in less than 90 seconds. To Asif, this seemed very remarkable and he expressed his surprise in the following words: “It took them minutes to open the car and drive off with it and we didn’t know about it.”

     

    So how did the crooks pull it off? Asif’s car was a keyless BMW, which means that unlike the traditional cars that require you to insert and turn the keys to unlock them, these electronic keys unlock the doors automatically when the keys are in close proximity of your car. The keys continuously transmit signals that the car picks up and uses those signals as an automatic command to unlock the doors. By Asif’s account, he left his car keys on the table, which was very close to the front door. In the CCTV footage, one of the thieves is seen waving a backpack in front of the door, while the other one stood close to the vehicle. The backpack contained a transmitter that captured signals from the key on the table inside the house and transmitted it to a second transmitter close to the car. This relaying of signals makes the car system think that the key is in close proximity causing it to start. After that, the thieves simply made off with Asif’s BMW.

     

    One remedy that is often suggested to avoid incidents like these is to place the keys in a metal tin that stops the flow of electromagnetic signals between the keys and the vehicle. Another precaution that is more effective and practical than putting keys inside a metal tin is to place your keys as far from the front door as possible so a transmitter at your front door doesn’t relay signals.

     

    Despite all the precautions, a car tracker is instrumental in guaranteeing your car’s security so if in case, your car gets stolen, you would know where it is headed and could alert the authorities about it. Mr. Asif acknowledged that the ultimate responsibility lies with the car owners to protect their vehicles: “We have told the police but they can only do so much, we just need people to be on the lookout”.  Where it could take months to recover a stolen vehicle, car trackers let you monitor your vehicle in real-time, which makes police’s job heck of a lot easier.

  • Do Electric Cars Need Car Trackers? Yes! Here's why

    The benefits that electric cars offer to the environment and their owners are innumerable but the most prominent ones include lower carbon emissions, reduced reliance on fossil fuels, and lower fuel costs to use and maintain the vehicle. Despite the momentous breakaway that electric cars offer from the era of fossil fuel burning, there are still similarities between modern electric cars and traditional gasoline-based vehicles. One of those similarities is the need for a car tracker. As car thefts skyrocket in the UK, it is essential that car owners take the necessary steps to protect the investment they made into purchasing their cars—electric or otherwise. Even though electric car manufacturers are opening new frontiers into what is possible through utilization of green energy, the tracking systems they offer remain woefully inadequate compared to the vehicle trackers available in the market. Here we have listed some of the benefits that an electric car tracker offers to their owners:

    Round-the-Clock Monitoring of Your Vehicle

    Since GPS trackers allow you to create a virtual geo-fence for your vehicle, you can receive an instant notification whenever your electric car travels outside your set parameters. For example, if you are sleeping in your home and your electric car parked outside is stolen, you wouldn’t know that your car is gone until you wake up in the morning. Plus, as electric cars make little noise when they move, you cannot exclusively rely on the noise factor to alert you of a theft. With a car tracker, you can set parameters for the night and rest peacefully in your bed knowing that if anyone tries to steal your car, you and the local police will be immediately notified. With an electric car tracking system in place, you greatly increase the chances of vehicle recovery even if the vehicle is stolen, which could significantly lower the insurance premium you pay on your electric vehicle.

    Tracking the State of Charge

    Through an electric car tracker, you can easily monitor the state of charge of your electric car. You don’t need to power up the engine to find out whether or not you have enough charge to make a specific trip, you could be sitting in your bedroom and find out through the web-portal whether or not you need to charge your vehicle. Even if you are on the road and the charge goes down, an electric car tracker would locate the nearest charging stations so you could refuel the car battery.

    Better Trip Planning

    Even as electric cars become more popular all over the UK, the number of charging stations are still nowhere near as common as gasoline fuelling stations because of which each of the long trips that you intend to take on an electric car has to be planned and optimized. Failure to do so could result in you being left stranded in a remote area with a dead battery on your car having to call the local police to come to your assistance. With an electric car tracker, you can follow routes that are the most efficient in consuming the least amount of charge to travel the longest possible distances and on which charging stations are a common presence.

    Despite all the advancements electric car companies such as Tesla have made, you still require a GPS tracker to make the most out of your investment. As our transport system transitions onto green energy, the infrastructure required to aid electric car drivers will take time to get properly implemented. To work within the existing infrastructure, a GPS tracker for electric car goes a long way in minimizing the problems you could potentially face.

  • Don't Drive Around Without a Dashcam Even If You Have a Car Tracker

    Given the number of vehicles on the roads in the UK and an ever increasing number of accidents, there are very few excuses for those who still drive around without a dash cam. What used to be amenity has become a necessity yet a vast swathe of public still remains unconvinced. In this article, we list 5 points to explain the growing importance of dash cams.

    Resolving Accident Disputes

    Once the initial shock after an accident wears off, very rarely does the guilty party own up to their negligence and mistake. When the police come, each of the parties involved presents their version of events. With no substantial proof to examine, the police are prone to judgingly the victim as the guilty one. This could result in blemishes on your driving record, penalties in the shape of increased premiums by your insurance provider, and even legal jeopardy. In such a situation, many a victim wish they had installed a dash cam on their vehicle, but unfortunately, it’s too late.

    To avoid getting into such a situation, every driver must seriously consider installing a dash cam if their pocket allows. Even if they have to make cuts in other areas of life to save enough to afford a dash cam, they should do it. Ideally, you should ask your car dealer for advice to purchase a dash cam. It is possible that your vehicle financier might even extend you the credit to install a dash cam.

    Know What Happens to Your Vehicle When You are Away

    Car thefts in the UK are on the rise. Last year alone, there were almost a million cases involving car thefts. Some dash cams come with sensors that probe the movement around your vehicle and begin recording as soon as they sense anything unusual. With such a dash cam in place, you can rest assured that your car is safe. As soon as someone tries to break into your vehicle or unlock the door, the dash cam would begin recording and even live-stream it if they have the functionality. Upon being alerted instantly, you can notify the police and thus increase the likelihood that your vehicle remains safe. Having such security measures in place could even result in lowered insurance premiums as the risk posed to your insurance provider is reduced significantly.

    Monitor Your Kids’ Driving Habits

    It’s not all about you when your kids take your vehicle out for a drive with friends; you can monitor their driving behaviour. If they show-off to their friends or go into an area that you do not approve of, you can contact them instantly to knock it off. Identifying areas such as parallel parking where your child needs improvement could prevent a dent on your vehicle and your neighbour’s.

    Recording Your Trip

    Many a time you see family on a road trip using a phone camera to record a journey. Recording video while holding a phone for hours on end could interfere with the enjoyment of a road trip. Dash cams offer a great alternative. They can record every scene on the road and even those taking place inside the vehicle without aching your arms. With an extendable memory in place, they could record days’ worth of footage. Blackvue DR750S-1CH is a good choice for this purpose. It records videos with full HD 1080P and has extendable memory so you don’t have to worry about memory being full. A high-quality video shot from the right angle would ensure that you could have the experience repeatedly by playing it on the screen at home.

    Given the way our driving patterns and modes of driving have changed, it is vital to have an all-seeing eye that captures everything that happens around your vehicle whether your vehicle is travelling on the road or is parked outside your home.

  • How GPS Car Tracking Can Protect Your Classic Car

    Classic cars are like old wine, the older they get more expensive they become. Because of this, they never fail to attract the unwanted attention of car thieves. Depending on the connections of the thief, he could sell individual parts of a classic car for a higher price than you paid for the entire vehicle. Since the majority of the classic cars were designed before car trackers became so prevalent, they lack the structural and wiring mechanism that accommodate trackers. Even though it is vital that you install a tracker on your classic car to protect it against thefts, however, there is a multitude of steps that you must also take to ensure the safety of your vehicle.

    Use a Manual Transmission

    The number of people who know how to drive a car with manual transmission is falling rapidly. Part of the reason is auto companies’ focus on automation whether it is through automatic transmission or self-driving cars. Thus, a classic car that employs manual transmission works dually as a return to the golden age of driving and as a deterrent to those who may want to deprive you of your valued possession. Though most classic cars employed manual transmission, there is a growing trend of hobbyists who want to own the classic cars but are not too big on driving a manual transmission. If you care about the security of your vehicle, you should fight the urge to move them onto the automatic transmission and learn to drive the manual transmission.

    Be Careful with Where You Leave Your Classic Car

    Research shows that a significant number of classic cars are stolen from dealerships, garages, repair shops, and restoration shops. By looking around on the internet to read reviews from those who have had their classic cars repaired at different shops might be a good place to start to locate shops that are the most secure for your classic car. Failing to research a shop properly before dropping off your vehicle for servicing and repair could lead to thefts, and it could take months or never to recover your treasured classic car.

    Another area from where thieves could steal your car is your own garage. Dozens of incidents take place every year when a classic car is stolen right under its’ owners’ nose. To guard your vehicle against thefts, make sure your car’s doors are locked, and keys are placed somewhere away from the vehicle. Even if your garage doors are locked safely, keeping keys away from the vehicle is a good practice.

    Install a Classic Car Tracker

    Last but not the least, installing a car tracker in your classic car is a must if you want to protect your vehicle. Many a time despite taking precautions, owners are deprived of their classic cars as thieves transport these vehicles to underground garages nearby and sell it part by part rather than as a whole. It makes it particularly difficult to recover or locate the stolen vehicle. By having a classic car tracker fitted into your car would ensure that you are aware of its’ whereabouts and can thus inform the local authorities immediately when your GPS detects an intrusion.

    Upon buying a classic car, taking steps to ensure its’ safety should be your priority.

  • How is Autowatch Ghost is Different from Other Vehicle Trackers

    Autowatch ghost is one of the leading car trackers out there that protects your vehicle against hacking, key thefts, and keyless cloning, among many threats. Where most other trackers work by tracking the location of your vehicle in real time and alerting you when they detect a forced intrusion, Autowatch ghost works by preventing the engine from starting in the absence of your unique pattern code.

    Autowatch ghost doesn’t operate through fobs, tags, or LEDs and does not emit any radio signals, so there is no way for thieves to detect its’ location or even know that it is installed in your car. It remains silent and undetected. The way it works is that it lets you set a changeable PIN code that you enter through the buttons that are already fitted in your car such as the door locks, volume keys etc. Once the PIN code has been set, you will need to enter it before your engine starts. If Autowatch ghost does not detect the correct PIN code you had set, it will not let the engine start.

    This kind of technology is particularly useful for the latest luxury vehicles that operate without keys. Using the kits available on Amazon and eBay, keyless cars can be easily stolen. By relaying signals from the fob to the car, thieves trick the car into thinking that the fob is nearby and then start the engine. Autowatch ghost protects against thefts of this kind by asking for the PIN code even when the fob is near. If thieves somehow relay the signal to the car and are successful in unlocking it, they wouldn’t be able to start the engine and drive off. As the number of keyless cars being stolen in the UK skyrockets, Autowatch ghost is one of the best options available for car owners who take the security of their cars seriously.

    Autowatch ghost is not exclusive to keyless cars; it offers security features for vehicles with traditional ignition as well. Suppose, a key to your classic car was stolen or cloned, thieves would have unfettered access to your car and could easily unlock the doors, fire off the engine and drive away. But if you installed Autowatch ghost on your vehicle, thieves wouldn’t be able to do so. They might be able to unlock the car doors and put the key into the ignition, but they wouldn’t be able to start the engine. Autowatch ghost would prevent the engine from starting unless they entered the unique PIN code that you had set.

    Due to its’ size and the fact that it emits no radio signals, car thieves cannot easily locate and bypass it. Even though Autowatch ghost operates on simple technology, it needs to be fitted and wired correctly or else it might not work properly. Vehicle Tracking Tech has a team of professionals with years of experience under their belt who can install Autowatch ghost in your vehicle adequately.

  • How to Get the Most Out of Your Dash Cam

    Dash cams are immensely beneficial to the drivers regardless of the type of vehicles they drive. Footage captured on dash cam can help resolve disputes that could cost you a lot of money and get you out of a tricky situation. Owning a dash cam is a good start but to use it to its’ full potential, you need to learn a few things to get the most out of your dash cam.

    Install a High-Resolution Dash Cam

    Dash cams come in all shapes, forms, and sizes, the most important thing is to purchase one that fits your budget and records the highest quality footage. A lot of times for one reason or another, car owners end up opting for a low-end model, and when they need to prove their innocence after getting into an accident, the quality of the recorded footage is too poor to be admissible as evidence. Thus, a low-resolution dash cam renders the primary use of dashcam obsolete.

    But if you have a high-resolution dash cam, it will record good quality videos even at night time so you can rest assured that if you get into an accident through no fault of your own, you have an electronic witness that will set the record straight with the authorities.

    Tidy Up Your Dashboard

    Once you install a dashboard, you should cut down on all the clutter obfuscating its’ lens such as various items hanging from the rear-view mirror. Failure to do so would result in footage not being recorded adequately in the event of an accident. Just like using a low-resolution camera, an untidy dashboard would undermine the primary use of a dash cam. A tidy dashboard would not only enable your dash cam to record clear footage but also reduce the items that could potentially distract you from the road, which raises the likelihood of getting into an accident.

    Ensure Dash Cam Has Enough Storage Space

    Some dash cams come only with internal storage space with no option to add external memory. If your dash cam does not support external memory, make sure you keep tabs on the internal memory left otherwise your dash cam wouldn’t record anything in the event of an accident. As a general rule, you should try to purchase dash cams that offer the option to add external devices. They do not only provide you the luxury to not have to regularly check the memory space left but also the portability factor comes in handy. To access past footages, you can only remove the external memory and connect it to your computer while to access internal memory; you usually need to take out the entire device to connect it to your computer.

    Position It Properly

    How you position your dash cam is perhaps more important than any of the points mentioned above. You should always try to cut down on how much of your dash cam footage is covered by the sky. Dash cams should be pointed on the road so that they record only the vehicles and people nearby and not the sky unless you are trying to catch a meteor shower.

    Another thing to keep in mind when positioning the dash cam is to place it in the middle of the dashboard. Setting the camera at the corner of the car could lead to distorted footage especially in low light environments.

    MIO MiVUE mount offers a good way to adjust your camera view conveniently. You can attach your high-resolution camera to it and then use its’ adjustable handle to have your camera focus on the important stuff.

    There are lots of ways to make the most of your dash cam but starting with afore-mentioned guidelines would set you on the right path. Almost every dash cam comes with a users’ manual; you should read it to understand the specifics about your particular dash cam.

  • Less Known Benefits of Vehicle Tracking Fleet Management

    Businesses that rely on their trucks, lorries, vans, or any other types of vehicle, stand to gain the most from using a fleet management system. The benefits that fleet management systems entail go well-beyond the shallow facilities such as pinpointing map locations of drivers and controlling fuel costs. In this post, we explore some of the less known ways that fleet operators and transporters can benefit from employing a vehicle tracking system.

    Increased Road Safety

    Probably the most overlooked aspect of vehicle tracking is how much it could help identify drivers who are prone to getting into accidents because of their driving habits. Using the data analytics that the tracking system provides, managers can quickly work out individual drivers who pose the most significant threat to others on the road. By taking necessary actions, fleet operators can prevent the unnecessary loss of human lives and thus reduce the liability to their business. Even if by any chance, one of your drivers gets into an accident, emergency services can be immediately notified to avert a greater disaster.

    Reduce Employee Fraud

    Handwritten records are susceptible to employee fraud and even honest mistakes. If your drivers habitually report more work hours than it actually takes them to carry out their job, you could be losing thousands of pounds every month. Having a fleet management system allows you to record the exact time your drivers spent on the road, the routes they took, and if they went over the speeding limit. Such a system allows you to eliminate the factor of misreporting and streamline the process of calculating work hours.

    Better Upkeep of Vehicles

    Fleet management software doesn’t only provide you with tracking data, but they also compile a record on the number of miles your vehicles have travelled over the course of time. This compilation of data along with a high-end tracker could alert you when it might be time for servicing your vehicles. It could increase the lifespan and efficiency of your vehicles and also help prevent injury to your drivers due to things like worn out braking system. Through fleet management, you can stay informed about the issues with your vehicle before they result in a catastrophe.

    Reduced Insurance Payments

    Transporters that employ fleet management systems are more likely to be offered reduced insurance premiums than those who operate without them. Insurance companies have room to be generous since fleet management systems significantly reduce the risk posed to them. Regardless of the size of your fleet, by installing fleet management, the amount of money you can potentially save could be substantial in relation to your working capital.

    Even though the benefits of fleet management systems are innumerable, here we have highlighted the ones that are most often overlooked but deserve no less consideration than those usually advertised by fleet management system providers. Whether you are managing a fleet of five vehicles or a hundred, fleet management can help your business run more efficiently.
