Quite simply put, a vehicle tracker is designed to track vehicles of any kind. Once installed into a vehicle the tracking device will be able to monitor:
All whilst on the move via the GPS satellite system. The GPS (Global Positioning System) works in conjunction with Google Maps which uses a combination of satellites in different positions and calculates the distance from several points to pinpoint exactly where you are located in the world. When you use this with a multi-business sim you have full coverage across Europe.
Our vehicle trackers are about the size of a matchbox and are installed under the dashboard for security and aesthetic purposes.Get a Quote
Once the vehicle is switched on the vehicle tracking system bursts into life via the GPS connection with a constant link which will update every minute or if an action happens like a left turn for example. All of the routes the fleet of vehicles takes gets stored which can then be analysed in our series of reports that have been developed over many years based on what managers need from a vehicle tracking system. Some of the reports include:
When collating all of this and evaluating driver performances and averages it becomes easy to see where issues might be or drivers that are underperforming.
Our green report was generated to improve business carbon footprints on the journey to be neutral. It offers:
What this also does is highlight drivers that are the worst offenders and whilst your green stats can be improved this also rather conveniently boosts the businesses' bottom line as fixing these driver behaviours also lowers fuel costs and the longevity of the vehicle's life reducing wear and tear. A car traveling at 56mph rather than 75mph will use 20% less fuel for example so go green and save the planet and your overheads
Speed analysis and driver behaviour reports will show:
Because the vehicles are tracked 24/7 you can also be notified of any outside working hours activity and allocate a business v personal use for tax purposes as well as recoup costs if vehicles are allowed to be used for personal use but at a cost to the employee.
Postcode visit reports and geofenced visits reporting gives you:
By having specific points set up for alerts you can avoid missing charges for example or be able to inform important customers when their deliveries have arrived as well as seeing if anyone is running behind schedule to inform customers of any delays.

Vehicle tracking is the use of technology to give a user the location, movement and current status of vehicles that are being tracked. Data that it provides you can include instances of speeding, fuel consumption and idling time. This information can all be utilised to allow you to improve your fleet management operations, safety and security as well as your compliance.
Vehicle tracking usually utilises GPS devices that are installed into a fleet of vehicles which transmit the location data to a system for analysis in the main office. The data is usually displayed on a map to provide your business with real-time visibility into the location, movement and current activity of vehicles.
Vehicle tracking provides your business with various benefits, this includes improved fleet management, time and cost savings, increased safety and security as well as improved overall customer service.
You can improve your fleet management operations with vehicle tracking as it provides you with real-time visibility into your vehicles, you can look at their location, their movement and their current status. You can proactively optimise your routes, reduce your fuel consumption and therefore the overall fuel costs, as well as getting more utilisation out of the fleet.
As you get the current status of the vehicle as well you can utilise this to monitor driver behaviours. This will give you full information into instances of speeding, harsh braking, idling and more. This allows you to recognise which drivers require a little bit of coaching into how they can improve their behaviours behind the wheel.
By utilising vehicle tracking, you can look into the hours of service for drivers, this ensures that your drivers are not driving too long at any one time (an issue usually for HGV drivers). You can also ensure that you are meeting your regular maintenance schedules to ensure that your vehicles are roadworthy as well as ensuring that you meet emissions regulations with each vehicle.
Vehicle tracking can be used to improve your customer service, by seeing the current, real-time location of your drivers, you can supply customers that are waiting for one of your employees to arrive on site with an accurate, and up-to-date estimated time of arrival which will keep them happy. You can also quickly respond to any issues that arrive, if a driver's vehicle breaks down, you can quickly recognise this ensuring that a different driver can get on-site ensuring that all jobs are completed on time.
By analysing data through reports you can proactively ensure you get the most optimised routes for your drivers, this ensures that no one crosses paths and the routes that are covered will cover the least ground, this helps to reduce the consumption of fuel saving your business money. Additionally, you can reduce idle time which will help to extend the lifespan of your vehicles.
Vehicle tracking can very easily help you with theft prevention, you have real-time visibility into the location, movement and activity of vehicles. By understanding where vehicles are at all times, you understand if they have been taken out of a specific area without authorisation. If they have already been taken, you have a real-time update on where this vehicle is, allowing you to get the authorities involved and you can give them constant updates on where they are.
No, you can also track assets as well as vehicles. Whether it is high-value assets or something as simple as tools, it's important to understand where they are at all times. It also gives you better inventory management allowing you to quickly respond to any issues that may arise.
