The global positioning system (GPS) incorporates 24 satellites all positioned in the orbit. GPS fleet tracking systems use TIGTrack tracking software to monitor vehicles and other road users by equipping users with real-time alerts and update by use of available data received by the monitoring operator from the devices via the satellite thus having an eye on the devices from a central point, useful in ensuring traffic operates optimally by having responsible drivers, thus safe fleet movement. It require embedded hardware installation in the fleet devices then linked to the satellite to give it signals which the GPS tracking system gets from the satellites and use them to locate, monitor and track devices location. Multiple satellites are used in triangulating these locations thus the accuracy and effectiveness of the device depends on and is directly proportional to the number of satellites it can see.
The choice of the most suitable system depends on how its features match the requirement of the expected fleet management area. Preferably, the chosen system should offer a wide range of standard features, with no extra cost. Such factors include customer support program and features, fuel card integration, excellent navigation, communication and interaction capabilities and trending on-key metrics dashboards.
The system should allow for real time live or electronic (emails, videos extra) contacting, be available any time needed, incorporate documentation options and help-desk services. Consider the third-party integration capabilities to enable save time via automatic payroll, into account data, software and attendance syncing. Thirdly, the system should be customer affordable, realistic, not complicated to use by requiring much training and high technology operational skills or having in-person and virtual demonstrations, instead be easy to use by beginners.
Equally important, the preferred system should enable system alerts by sending warning signals or written messages in case of malfunctioning or malpractices within the monitored device. Ensure the system of choice allow alerts setting for preferred occurrences such as over drunk and off-route drives and other unsafe traffic practices. The GPS tracking system of choice should be always reliable, not keep losing signal by dropping connectivity in certain geographical areas such as down-hills and tunnels. Finally, consider the availability of the mobile access i.e. ability to support various web-based versions and mobile applications and their availability for different devices of prevalence. Also check the ability to access the latter services anytime, from anywhere such as 3G locations.
Though such systems experience a major limitation of employee pushback, the condition is highly manageable thus making the system the best of its king in fleet management. The task is all about selecting the most suitable solution to carb business challenges and delivers the most rewards. Long-term partner tracking companies are most preferred for location and service intelligence.
