Comparing GPS Fleet Tracking Software

by | Nov 8, 2021 | News Posts

If you have been searching for GPS Fleet Tracking & Management software, it can be tricky when they all claim to be the best in the business. This article will help you sift through them all and find the best one for your fleet’s needs.

Gone are the days when fleet-tracking software only required a GPS tracker and a standard telematic interface to track it. Today’s market demands that even the simplest GPS trackers are not restricted to monitoring the fleet’s vehicles 24/7 location but also come equipped with a precision accelerometer, unplugged tamper alerts, and easy installation. Followed by the more advanced features such as a Driver Identification scanner, SOS dash mount button, monitor driver behaviour, unauthorised movement alerts, camera solutions, and the list can go on. So, what should you consider when deciding on the best solution while also getting a sufficient ROI?


Evaluation of Your Fleet’s Needs


The market is filled with numerous products ranging from simple to advanced GPS tracking software. It is vital first to research the products offered, the features they come with and their price range. Through exploring the different devices out there, you should have a decent idea about the available features. After all, it would not be an ideal business move to pay for parts that are not required for your fleet’s needs thus, negatively affecting your ROI.


User Interface


Knowing how to use the product’s software is critical, especially when emergencies arise and need to be dealt with efficiently. Thus, having a user-friendly dashboard is ideal. The software dashboard is where you can view numerous metrics about how well your drivers are performing, such as speeding, idling, fuel consumption, kilometres driven, hours worked and more. If the interface is not easy and assessable, it can be hard to get the most out of the product, service and money invested.


Administration and Installation


Implementing any software into the business can be daunting; however, it does not need to be. There are many things to consider, such as learning the software, installation time, affordability, service, and maintenance. Remember to ask your potential GPS software vendor these essential questions to ensure you are making informed decisions.


Finally. Map Reliability and Quality  


Arguably, the most important question to ask is how good is the vendor’s map and is it reliable? The map and GPS tracking technology capability will be the most frequently used within the software for many companies. When researching the best vendor to partner up with, factors to consider are; how accessible are the metrics and how easy the navigation around the map interface is?
