Would you do away with email for your company to save a few dollars?
Of course not!
Email is an invaluable tool for any organization, and its value is known to be far more than its cost.
But many companies don’t realize that by delaying the inevitable purchase of GPS Tracking for their fleet of vehicles, it’s essentially doing away with email. For their vehicles.
And these vehicles have lots to tell us, but without GPS Tracking Systems, they can’t.
They might want to tell you, the fleet administrator or supervisor:
- I’m being used for side jobs and during weekends/evenings for personal usage
- I’m exceeding the speed limit frequently and recklessly
- I’m not being used when you’re paying my driver to use me
- I’m iding excessively and wasting your fuel and money
- I’m skipping customers or driving out of the way so you can pay more overtime
- I’m due for an oil change and tire rotation
- I wasn’t there when your driver used his fuel card over the weekend (but his other car probably was…)
And these emails can come automatically, just by subscribing to scheduled, regular reports:
Or they can come in real time as alerts which let not only you, but also your driver know about the idling, speeding, odd-hours, or inefficient driving behavior.
Or maybe they would only say:
- My driver is doing a great job
- Everything is OK
- Go to sleep and stop worrying for a change…
And most importantly, you get instant chat for free with GPS Tracking — you never need to wonder where the vehicle is again, and you can communicate with its driver in real time if desired.
Someday soon, if you don’t have GPS Tracking on your vehicles, and aren’t using it to its full potential, you’ll be just as in the dark ages as if you didn’t have email. Just like when you needed to use the USPS to send and receive information (we’ll even skip the FAX ages).
And for the price of 2-3 stamps or so per day, you can track a vehicle using GPS.
If you’re not already doing so, give it a try to see what you’re missing.
The ROI of having your vehicle email you regularly is something you’ll realize is as invaluable as the email you receive from your peers. Actually, maybe even more valuable.
