GPS Tracking Software

GPS semi

GPS tracking software is used by a number of different businesses, but some businesses are able to benefit from its use even more than others.  The ones that stand to enjoy the biggest gains from the software include those that operate a large fleet of vehicles on a daily basis.  For instance, those that operate mail delivery vehicles as well as corporations that provide company vehicles can benefit tremendously.  In addition, it is used by many local, state and even federal agencies, as several municipalities use it for the vehicles operated by first responders such as fire, paramedics and police.

More specifically, mail delivery companies use it to ensure that their drivers are on the correct routes and that they are operating the vehicles as efficiently as they possibly can.  The entire idea is to get the packages to the customers as quickly as possible while simultaneously minimizing the amount of fuel that is consumed throughout the day.  The same is basically true for those companies that provide vehicles for their employees, although it may not seem as pertinent at all times.  When it comes to municipalities that use the software, there are a number of potential benefits.  First responders have to get wherever they are going as quickly as they possibly can.  Therefore, they have to choose the right course of travel at all times.  It also allows dispatchers to know exactly where they are in case they find themselves in trouble and in need of immediate assistance.

When the software is used, everybody has the opportunity to benefit.  Employees are kept safer, knowing that they can be rescued if they have a mechanical problem with the vehicle.  Companies have the chance to save money because automobiles are driven fewer miles and less money is required to pay for maintenance and fuel.  The company then has more money to pay employees better wages or provide more comprehensive benefits packages.  When it comes to the specific types of businesses that have been mentioned, the benefits are often the difference between success and failure.

 

GPS software HVAC

The HVAC industry has been growing by leaps and bounds, but not without its challenges. Running an HVAC company requires dedication and commitment, along with training and expertise. The owners of such companies much wear many hats and perform many tasks, from keeping track of the trucks on the road to fielding calls from happy (and unhappy) customers.

That is why so many HVAC company owners have been installing GPS tracking systems and seeing the benefits firsthand.

One of the biggest benefits of GPS tracking software for the HVAC industry is the ability to manage an entire fleet and an entire workforce from afar -without having to go out on jobs or become a micromanager. The ability to manage a workforce and vehicle fleet remotely frees the owners and managers up for more important tasks and allows them to serve the customer better.

In fact, GPS tracking software can actually improve customer service, so it may be able to help with disgruntled customers. If a truck is late getting to a job, the owner can tell exactly where it is and reassure the customer that help is on the way.

In addition to all these benefits, GPS tracking software can help in another important way. Theft is always a problem for owners of HVAC equipment – all that expensive equipment and valuable materials are tempting targets for thieves, especially when the trucks are parked and unattended.

Installing GPS tracking technology in each truck makes it easier for the police to track a stolen vehicle and recover the expensive tools and materials. This benefit alone could more than pay for the cost of installing the tracking technology and software.

With so many benefits, it is easy to see why so many HVAC company owners are upgrading their fleets with GPS tracking technology and software. From improved security and better time management to superior customer service and reporting capabilities, GPS software provides a number of valuable benefits to the HVAC industry.

A  bill proposing a pilot GPS tracking program for state vehicles is moving through the Michigan state legislature.   If approved, the bill would approve a pilot program for approximately a hundred of the state’s vehicles.  If the pilot program were proven to be successful, GPS tracking could then be installed on all state vehicles at an approximate annual cost ranging from $500K to over $1M.  The bill was drafted in part due to suspected misuse of state time, vehicles, and resources, including one case where state time and vehicle privileges were abuse on 84 occasions.   If enacted, officials expect the vehicle tracking devices and GPS tracking software to save fuel, eliminate mileage reporting, and assist in monitoring employees.

GPS tracking software school bus

A New Mexico school district is investigating a claim made by a parent that a district school bus was speeding when it passed her on a local highway.  School district officials said all buses in the district have GPS tracking devices installed, and with the use of GPS tracking software it is possible to pinpoint the speed and location of any bus at any time.   While the district did not disclose what details were revealed via GPS tracking, they cited that the speeding bus incident will be handled internally as a personnel matter.  GPS tracking software also has been used in the past to protect drivers from false accusations.

As car accidents remain the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, TrackingTheWorld is reminding parents of the benefits of GPS tracking devices to monitor teenage driving habits for both safety and peace of mind during prom and graduation season.

“Real time vehicle trackers allow parents to know where their teen’s vehicle is at all times, how fast it is moving, and even alert them to harsh driving such as sudden braking,” said Gilbert Walz, CEO of TrackingTheWorld, a firm exclusively specializing in tracking devices and GPS tracking software for more than 11-years.

For monitoring teenage drivers, TrackingTheWorld recommends its EnduroPro tracker, a compact real time tracking device which is easy to install and operate. The device can simply be placed in the vehicle’s glove compartment or under a seat, and can be magnetically mounted using TrackingTheWorld’s affordable MiniMag case.

With GPS tracking software services and an Internet connection, the EnduroPro also allows parents to create geo-fences, a set of pre-determined boundaries, for their teen.  If the vehicle moves outside of the boundary, the tracker will immediately transmit an alert notifying the parents via programmed cell phone numbers.  As added safety feature, the EnduroPro also comes equipped with a panic button which, when pressed, will automatically alert parents or other family members through a rapid series of location alerts, indicating that the teen needs emergency assistance.

Founded in 2003, TrackingTheWorld is based in Burlingame, California, and offers a broad selection of GPS tracking devices and accessories and tracking services.  For more information about GPS tracking systems for teenage drivers, or to purchase GPS trackers directly from TrackingTheWorld distributors, visit www.trackingtheworld.com.

If you’re a business owner with even a small fleet of vehicles, you’re certainly aware of how much time and energy is invested into tracking the mileage on your company vehicles.  Manual mileage logging and then data entry of the information required to create a useable report is inefficient, frustrating and time consuming, and you still have no way of knowing whether your company vehicles are being misused by employees.

As a solution for tedious mileage reporting, TrackingTheWorld GPS tracking software offers automated reporting options, eliminating the need for manual logging, plus other features to assure the proper use of your company vehicles.  For example, our tracking software offers geo-fencing which automatically sends alerts via cell phone or email to let you know when a company vehicle leaves a predetermined area.  With the use of real time GPS tracking devices for company vehicles you’ll also be alerted to harsh driving patterns.  GPS trackers are also ideal for providing an additional level of security for employees, with some models offering a panic alert button, which automatically launches a rapid series of location alerts to preset phone numbers and email addresses.

Officials in the city of Warren in Macomb County Michigan have agreed to add GPS tracking technology, a nearly $600-thousand dollar investment, to city vehicles including snow plows, and sanitation trucks.  The fleet tracking initiative will provide an extra convenience to citizens such as knowing when to expect services, and the city hopes to recoup their investment in efficiency by eliminating manual mileage reporting, and more carefully watching the location of city assets.

With real time GPS tracking updates every 2 minutes via GPS tracking software, supervisors will know when a city vehicle has left its predetermined set of boundaries, a process known as geo-fencing, and will receive reports when city vehicles are traveling at excessive speeds or when brakes are operated abruptly.  The city expects that the savings gained by automated reporting, and eliminating the excessive or unauthorized use of city vehicles will be well worth the investment.
