Business owners are constantly finding their profit margins compressed by competition, rising parts and labour costs, increased compliance and legal costs, increased operating expenses and ongoing investments in plant & technology.
When approached by a GPS Tracking vendor, many businesses are quick to dismiss the idea due to a belief that the technology is yet another expense. The reality is, GPS tracking is not an expense—it’s an investment, and one with a very strong return! GPS tracking can reduce labour costs, compliance and legal costs, operating expenses and maintenance/replacement of plant & equipment. That’s why 99% of businesses that employ GPS tracking never look back.
One way to picture GPS Tracking is as a manager sitting inside each vehicle, with your employees at all times. How many more jobs or deliveries would they get done if this were the case? How long would they take for lunch or spend running their own errands? And how much more accurate would their timesheets be? GPS Tracking can have the same effect as a manager permanently in the vehicle, but without the cost—one extra job or delivery each week easily pays for the system.
Knowing where your team is at all times also gives you a competitive edge. Being able to tell customers on the phone exactly how far away their technician/delivery is, or confirm POD or proof of time on site, saves time and improves customer satisfaction.
With new WH&S legislation, businesses are more at risk than ever – especially those with mobile workforces. But imagine having a system that can protect directors and everyone within the chain of responsibility. A good GPS Tracking system allows you to keep track of staff, manage vehicle use, monitor vehicle safety and identify “at risk” drivers. In the unfortunate event of dismissal proceedings, having accurate GPS data to back-up claims ensures quick and cost-effective resolution, potentially saving tens of thousands of dollars.
It costs a lot to buy, service and maintain a vehicle. If you were able to ensure the optimal use of your business’s vehicles—that they were serviced to schedule, and only ever driven for work, safely and efficiently, along appropriate routes —the savings in fuel, servicing, repairs and tyres would pay for the system many times over. This is before you even consider the improved vehicle longevity and resale value, and the improved public perception of your branded vehicles.
