GPS fleet tracking and fleet management software—the technology enabling the collection of data from vehicles—is surely something you are already aware of, or possibly already using, if you are reading these lines. But is it totally clear exactly what help these tools are able to provide?
A lot of people assume before they actually start using GPS tracking or fleet management tools for their business that, like this title suggests, they will primarily be dealing with “dots on a map”. Maybe this is because other applications based on GPS technology are becoming increasingly popular, like car navigation systems as well as the use of Google Maps to check out routes, and, by extension, people are inclined to view GPS fleet tracking as something similar.
Today we want to clarify what exactly a GPS fleet tracking system is able to do and why it is not just based on “dots on a map”, or, in other words, “real time location”, but could also help fleets succeed in a number of other ways.
The basis of a complete GPS fleet tracking system like SynX is indeed GPS technology, which provides location and time information thanks to GPS satellite signals—freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver. The information provided by GPS technology is later processed together with other important information—relating to fuel card integration, for example—by a system and converted into useful data, like the ones you can access with SynX.
If on one hand it is true that you can get access to the system at any time to see the location of your vehicles, it is also true that it is not the only useful information available; you can use that knowledge provided and cross-check it with other practical information coming from your vehicles: the fuel consumption, the speed, the servicing status of vehicles, to mention just a few. SynX actually does these tasks automatically and offers you the control of that information which you can use to make informed decisions, cut on costs, relocate your vehicles, decide upon a specific vehicle make and model (when you have to make a purchase) and much more…
