Posted by Jen Langan

As a fleet-based business owner, operator or manager you are faced with the challenge of monitoring and tracking not only vehicles, but drivers as well.  You can’t be with all your drivers on all their trips, so you rely on limited information to make very important decisions. The daily decisions you make have a direct impact on the business’s bottom line. Using the EZ Fleet GPS Tracking System you can avoid the biggest mistakes, listed below, made in fleet management.

  1. Not Optimizing Routes

If you aren’t tracking your driver’s routes, then you can’t see where they can be improved. With the EZ Fleet GPS Tracking solution you can follow your drivers and optimize the best route and even send them up to date instructions while they’re on the move! Optimizing routes will save you money in fuel and with the time saved you have the opportunity to increase your customer base.

  1. Not Creating a Preventative Maintenance Schedule

If you know when your vehicles are due next for routine maintenance you can avoid surprise costs. Keeping your vehicles in top operating condition means you’re less likely to have a day where a vehicle isn’t available. The automated alerts and reports makes it easy for you to schedule and keep track of what each of your vehicles need.

  1. Not Monitoring Unauthorized Use

Are your vehicles someplace they shouldn’t be? Are your vehicles being driven after the regularly scheduled hours? In either of these situations you are losing money. You can prevent unauthorized use, employee fraud and even theft with the EZ Fleet GPS Tracking system.

  1. Not Improving Driver Behavior and Safety

EZ Fleet GPS Tracking devices can help you uncover unsafe driving behavior such as speeding, harsh braking, harsh acceleration and taking corners too fast. This driving behavior not only causes unnecessary wear and tear on your vehicle costing you money, but it can also cause vehicle crashes and injuries.
