How much could you really save with vehicle tracking?

28 February 2018

Vehicle tracking is not just about locating your vehicles on a map—it can also provide insight on your mobile workforce and highlight where improvements could be made to save you money.

An independent report by Frost & Sullivan* indicates that vehicle tracking data can be used to:

  • Reduce fuel consumption by up to 25%
  • Decrease idling by up to 30%

Other than details on location and mileage, GPS trackers can record speed, idling, braking, and acceleration data. Are your drivers wearing down their vehicle from harsh acceleration or braking? Could they cut back on their idling and reduce fuel consumption? This valuable data tells you how your drivers are really performing out on the roads.

Sometimes it helps to compare your drivers. At Quartix, we offer a driver league table feature that will rank your vehicles or drivers based on overall performance.  This means you can tell, at a glance, who’s doing well and whose driving style needs improvement. Better driving will likely reduce fuel consumption and in turn reduce costs and help you see savings, plus have a positive effect on the environment.

The same Frost & Sullivan survey also found that vehicle tracking can:

  • Reduce employee overtime by up to 15%
  • Improve overall productivity by up to 15%

Overtime hours add up fast. Vehicle tracking can show you exactly what routes your drivers are taking every day. Does one driver’s route overlap with another’s?  Could anyone avoid areas of bad traffic congestion?  Armed with this knowledge, you can make sure jobs are completed efficiently within normal working hours.

Vehicle tracking gives you a complete look at your mobile workforce. With it, you’ll have the information you need to adjust your operations and improve productivity across the board.

So if you’re only pinpointing your vehicles’ locations, it’s worth talking to the experts about all the ways vehicle tracking can help your business save money.
