It’s common knowledge that any task will take more effort and considerably more time if the equipment to hand isn’t up to scratch. This could be anything from a small leak in a pipe, to a damaged computer component, to the low air pressure in your tyres which costs you more money on fuel and also risks danger. Whichever your problem, in a business environment the end-product is always the same – you will reduce efficiency and lose money. In the case of vehicles and fleets, this will happen if you do not have regularly maintained vehicles.
Luckily, companies like Transpoco offer GPS trackers and fleet management systems like SynX for your fleet of vehicles, and these devices can help. Alongside reducing expenditure by optimising your travel routes and cutting unnecessary labour costs, these GPS vehicle tracking systems will also automatically keep track of any relevant service milestones for your vehicles. These could be MOT, tax, or insurance renewal dates, or any vehicle service milestones. While saving you the hassle of manually organising these dates, these systems could even save you money in the long run.
By allowing you the freedom to complete your work without the constant worry of impending servicing or insurance payments, comprehensive GPS tracker systems can reduce your staff labour costs, while also allowing you to dedicate your time to more important tasks. On top of this, you can sleep easy knowing that your vehicles will remain in top physical condition, without the typical stress of organising and managing regular services – almost a necessity for bigger companies with larger fleets.
But apart from the reduced costs and effort spent planning and scheduling the regular servicing of vehicles, what else can a well-maintained fleet do for you and your company? These administrative features of GPS trackers ensure that your vehicles remain in optimum physical condition, ready to transport between warehouses or deliver direct to your customers in peak times. You could save any fuel which may have been lost by flat tyres or damage to your engine system, or even prevent a vehicle breakdown! Any journey along a major motorway will reveal distraught drivers waiting by their broken-down cars, but if you consider the customer expecting a next-day delivery, or the warehouse which requires parts from another location, the true cost of a well-serviced fleet of vehicles becomes clear!
So, if you want to save money on fuel consumption, the planning of vehicle services, and the possibility of eventual expensive vehicle repairs, you may wish to consider a GPS vehicle tracking system. You’ll be ensuring the efficiency of your vehicles and workforce, two requirements of a well-run business and a happy customer.
