GPS Tracking – Stay Ahead of Repairs & on Top of Preventative Maintenance With Telematics Data
GPS (global positioning system) tracking, sometimes called telematics, isn’t just about vehicle tracking to prevent machine theft, but one of the best ways to reduce machine repair costs and downtime.
How the Fleet Tracking System Works
After the installation of the wired version of the telematics device (T5 GPS device) in your heavy equipment, telematics devices will continue monitoring your equipment. You will receive telematics data such as battery life, idling hours, fuel consumption, and other parameters on all your fleet vehicles.
With this continuous monitoring, the telematics system shows you trends as well as live readings of your heavy equipment such as battery life, engine hours and etc that will help you improve your vehicle health. Telematics devices can also be used to immobilize your equipment remotely to protect your fleet assets from theft.
Even better, telematics technology helps you save time and money on administrative duties, thanks to better optimization and alerts across your entire fleet. GPS fleet tracking software helps you to see where all of your machines are at any given time with telematics systems, schedule regular vehicle maintenance, and even avoid major issues with preventative maintenance.
Geofencing for Fleet Management
Most telematics systems include geofencing, which allows you to set a virtual perimeter around a location.
Construction companies use geofencing as a means of preventing the theft of their heavy equipment. Others use it to monitor job sites since a geofence will alert you when machinery enters and exits the perimeter. Some may even use telematics systems for more accurate job site billing since they can monitor the time you spend on-site combined with engine run and idle times.
No matter how you use a geofence, telematics technology can save you time and money, increase fleet performance, and grant you greater visibility over your entire fleet.
