What should you look for in a vehicle tracking provider?
Quality of Location Tracking
Monitor the exact location of all your assets, personnel, and various equipment. Be sure to ask how accurate – and how often - the vehicle tracking provider’s location tracking is updated. The ability to accurately locate assets in real-time allows fleet operators to monitor more than just location. Pinpoint location data can lead to informed decisions that ultimately can minimise fuel costs, improve productivity, predict maintenance repairs and understand time on site.
Customer Support Availability
When purchasing vehicle tracking software it is important to find a partner that will support your efforts to optimise fleet performance. Not all vehicle tracking providers offer the same customer services.
- How will the provider assist you and your employees in learning the nuances of the new system?
- Are their training services live and on-demand so your staff can learn at their convenience?
- What kind of customer support do they provide to ensure any issues are resolved as quickly as possible?
- Are they able to consult you on any fleet management issues that may arrive?
A good software provider has role-based support and training services so that your drivers or administrators are getting help from someone who knows this ins and outs of their roles specifically.
Whether you need a plug-and-play device to begin tracking your fleet instantly or a tamper resistant, commercial-grade hard-wired device that is professionally installed on your schedule, a vehicle tracking system provider should understand that you need to keep your fleet moving and make the installation process work wherever your vehicles are.
