GPS Tracking for a Greener Business

Recycling.  Upcycling.  Paper-free offices.   In today’s world it seems as if we’re bombarded multiple options and continuous pressure to maintain both green businesses and homes.  Here are a few ways that adding GPS tracking to your business can help you improve the overall environmental friendliness of your business. 

Reduce Fuel Consumption:  One of the most pressing environmental and fiscal issues with many business owners is monitoring and attempting to reduce the amount of fuel used, and its cost.    GPS tracking software for business vehicles allows dispatchers to easily select the most efficient route of travel—saving fuel, time, and money. 

In addition, installing GPS tracking on your business fleet can increase the miles per gallon you get with your vehicles, as GPS tracking software acts as a deterrent for employees tempted to exceed speed limits or drive recklessly.

Working Toward a Paper-Free Office:  GPS tracking systems and GPS tracking software can help you reduce the amount of paper waste your business generates through automated reporting options, including work hours and mileage reporting.

LandLine Magazine recently reported that a covert GPS tracking device allowed police in Florida to track and recover a tractor trailer containing clothing items.  The trailer was stolen as it sat unattended in a truck stop parking lot.   The retail shipment, abandoned by the thieves suspected to be monitoring police traffic,  was tracked to a location only 30 miles from where it was stolen.  According to the article, Florida has the highest percentage of cargo theft, clothing theft adds up to more than $300,000 per year, and  approximately 85% of thefts occur due to rigs left running and unattended by their drivers.

gps tracking real estate signs

A Colorado real estate agent puzzled by missing signs now has an answer.  Every week, the realtor placed signs in a specific location and would return for them a few days later.  Each time, one or more of the real estate signs was missing.  First, opting for a video camera, the agent discovered that his signs were being plucked from the ground by a passerby driving through.

Then, taking things a step further, the agent placed more signs in the same location and equipped one with a GPS tracking system.  Using GPS tracking software, the tracking device was set to alert the agent when it sensed movement.   Within days, the tracker alerted the agent and he was able to trace the location of the GPS-equipped sign to a competitor’s garage.  The competitor claims he was only moving the sign from a location where it didn’t belong and did nothing wrong.  Charges are pending.

If prices at the pump are draining you dry, you should consider GPS tracking devices and software for your business fleet–especially if you offer delivery services or use company vehicles for service calls.  With GPS trackers in company vehicles and the help of GPS tracking software, dispatchers know exactly where each vehicle is at all times and can easily dispatch the appropriate vehicle to each call.  Saved miles equals saved fuel– and less wear and tear on your fleet.

Reduce Payroll Costs

A New Jersey man who installed a GPS jammer on his vehicle in hopes of outsmarting his bosses has instead been fined $32,000.  Turns out his GPS jamming device also interfered with the testing of GPS tracking systems on planes at an airport near his location.  GPS jammers (illegal in the United States) are devices which block GPS signals from being sent to or from a vehicle.

Here’s a link to a previous post on GPS tracking for employees.

Officials in Steamboat Springs, Colorado hope that real time GPS tracking systems deployed on city buses will allow citizens to minimize outdoor wait times in chilly winter weather.  The city is set to have GPS tracking devices installed on all 20 of their public transportation buses later this year.  By allowing bus riders to monitor the location of their buses, and thereby delays in the schedule, patrons will be able to plan accordingly. The estimated cost of the program is $82,000, with $65,000 coming from state grant funding.

In the US alone, ground transportation represents a multi-billion dollar industry largely responsible for connecting consumers with the food, clothing, and goods Americans use every day.  In an industry where efficiency can mean the difference between success and failure, transportation providers depend on GPS tracking systems for effective fleet management. Below, we’ve outlined some of the ways tracking devices and GPS tracking software help transportation providers remain on the move.

Safety First

Perhaps one of the most costly components of the transportation industry, accidents and increasing insurance costs can take a big bite out of profits for any provider.   Fleet management with GPS tracking software allows dispatchers to monitor drivers for exhaustion and excessive speed.  In addition to protecting drivers, GPS trackers help transportation providers minimize accidents and, as a result, unnecessary insurance claims.

Customer Satisfaction

In a digital world, customers expect on-demand updates in just about every area of their lives from work to play. With GPS tracking software, transportation providers are able to provide to- the-minute updates for their customers, including estimated arrival times, possible delays, and more.

Fuel Savings

For a transportation providers, rising fuel costs represent a serious threat to profitability, and minimizing fuel consumption is paramount to success.  Tracking devices, and GPS tracking software give transportation providers the edge they need to get ahead of fuel costs, including monitoring driving habits and idle time, and establishing more efficient routes of travel.

GPS tracking for business

In today’s very competitive marketplace, the ability to operate efficiently can make a significant difference in any business’s ability to be successful.  As one of the most effective business tools available, GPS tracking software provides business owners added efficiency in a number ways.

Their Time Equals Your Money

The more your business can achieve in fewer hours, the more profitable and competitive it will be.  With GPS tracking software, dispatchers can easily save time and dollars by having the ability to see where every vehicle in your fleet is at any time—speeding up response times, and optimizing travel routes. Especially for service providers, the ability to make more calls in less time can greatly improve the productivity level of every work day.

Reporting Made Easy

GPS tracking software offers automated reporting options to both speed the pace of business and help you analyze where your money is going.  These reporting options include mileage tracking, monitoring idle time, and route playback.

Asset Protection

As mentioned in our previous post on GPS tracking for loss prevention, GPS tracking devices can greatly improve the chances of recovering stolen property without damage.   The devices, used with GPS tracking software, allow business owners to see the location of their assets, and notify authorities.

Unmanaged loss prevention can take a big bite out of your business profits.  One of the most effective tools business owners are using today to prevent loss and deter thieves is GPS tracking systems.  Along with GPS tracking software, these devices can help you get a grasp on the profits you could be missing out on.

Prevent Theft with a GPS Tracking System

GPS tracking systems provide a powerful deterrent for both theft and the misuse of company assets and time.  When staff members are aware of GPS trackers deployed on your vehicles or heavy equipment it greatly reduces temptation.  For example, an employee who knows that his routes of travel are being tracked is far less likely to use a company vehicle for personal travel.

Recover Stolen Assets

If you happen to be the victim of theft, GPS tracking devices installed on your corporate assets can assist authorities in recovering the stolen asset and avoiding a loss.  With GPS tracking software, the location of the stolen item will be pinpointed, allowing authorities to reach it faster, and reducing the likelihood of damage.

Manage Payroll Costs

Payroll can be one of the most daunting costs for any business. If your business needs to trim the fat from overtime or other hourly wages, a GPS tracker and GPS tracking software may be just the tool you need.  For example, staff members who are aware that there time and movements are tracked using GPS tracking software, are less likely to claim time that wasn’t actually worked.  Plus, GPS tracking systems can reduce your overall payroll costs by helping you find more efficient ways of doing business, such as using less fuel, correcting inefficiencies in routes of travel and dispatching.

In a world where  cutting business costs is necessary to remain afloat, the last thing any business needs is lost profits through inflated payroll costs, or the theft or misuse of company assets.  Consider GPS tracking for business to manage loss prevention.
