Tracking Efficiency With GPS
Although the United States is not technically in a recession the economy is far from thriving. Unemployment is still very high, the federal debt has reached it’s ceiling and business owners are feeling the stress of uncertainty. For small companies running on very small profit margins sometime just breaking even every week is a positive. That is why it is so important for these small businesses that make up the backbone of the economy to take every necessary step to maximize efficiency and operations. It is also the reason why so many business enterprises are now using GPS devices to monitor employees as a tool to enhance productivity and accountability. Many service-oriented businesses require employees to work out in the field to assist customers. These types of businesses include tow truck operations, electricians, plumbers, heating & air conditioning services, carpet cleaners, salesmen and more. When an employee is conducting business outside of the office managers have no way of effectively applying oversight. The manager has to take the employee at their word and make a judgement. GPS tracking devices change that by giving managers answers in real-time!
Real-Time GPS Vehicle Tracking
GPS vehicle locator devices can give business owners and managers the most up-to-date information regarding how their employees are driving and the what places they are stopping at. Here is how the process goes down:
- Manager/business owner places a real-time GPS tracker on a company vehicle
- Employee drives that company vehicle throughout the day
- Manager/business owner can access all travel logs and vehicle activity through a website with mapping program
With the assistance of GPS vehicle tracking devices a small business is able to determine if employees are taking longer than allowed breaks from work, running personal errands while on the job, driving company vehicles at excessive rates of speed, utilizing the quickest routes and making all the stops required. The satellite and cellular based communication devices make it easy to catch employees not working or doing their job in the most effective fashion.
