Why do businesses track their vans?

Van security and van theft:

Company vans can often be a target for theft, as they are likely to contain valuable equipment. Having van tracking installed means that your vans can be recovered easily, and you will be alerted to any unusual movements right away.

Unauthorized van usage:

React to unauthorized vehicle movements fast with the help of our geofencing alerts. These allow you to set up zones and rules to make sure your vans are only used when and where they are meant to be. Be notified of any unauthorized use of your vans at weekends or in the evenings, and keep a close eye on the van’s mileage.

Protection of van drivers:

Your drivers and your company may face accusations from time to time, from clients disputing work that was completed or perhaps regarding a traffic collision. Van tracking can provide solid evidence to protect you and your drivers if this situation arises.

Why customers choose van tracking from Quartix

Van safety and maintenance:

Quartix van tracking helps you stay compliant with van safety checks, plan for vehicle down-time and set maintenance date reminders, so that your vans are always looked after. Driver behavior reports also let you correct driving styles that are detrimental to the van health, nipping any bad habits in the bud before your vans start to suffer the consequence.
