The Best Fleet Tracking System Is Out There, You just Have to Find It.
1. What Are All the Terms of Doing Business with Your Fleet Tracking Company?
The first thing you want to do is label your vehicles. Separate them into groups or locations, so you can quickly identify what you’re looking for and be able to pull up your different fleet views on your screen. Don’t worry about anything else until you have the system looking exactly how you want it. Now keep in mind that some fleet tracking systems require you to call in for vehicle naming, location, and group assignments.
Do yourself a favor, if you need to call in changes, make sure you have them all listed before you go into the call. Name your vehicles what you call them in real life this makes everything a lot easier when you’re looking at them on the screen.
2. How Fast Does Your Vehicle Location Update, and Is There a Fee for Faster Times?
Depending on what exactly your operational needs are, vehicle location updates can be a huge concern. Companies may tell you that they have real-time updates, but come to find out their vehicle location only updates every 2-3 minutes. Well, if you need to know right now where your guys are, 2-3 minutes is too long to wait. That makes giving turn-by-turn directions and load planning a little harder. You need to ask how fast does it update, and if they charge you extra for quicker update times. This will ensure that the system you are looking for will update as quickly as you need it to.
3. Is Your Fleet Tracking Platform a SaaS (software-as-a-service), or is it Download and Integrate. And How Long Will it Take to Adapt and Learn?
That’s right, some companies charge you for training. Some training takes months to learn, and months to integrate.
I can’t stress this question enough. There are companies out there that you can learn to use in one day that is very reasonable in cost.
