How can GPS vehicle tracking save you money? Monitoring and changing the driver behavior that causes inefficient fuel use is the key to conserving fuel and money.
Eliminate Needless and Wasteful Idling. Idling engines waste fuel. It’s that simple. Idling for just 10 seconds uses as much gas as turning off and restarting the engine. Turning off the ignition not only puts more money in your pocket, but it also improves air quality and helps to protect the environment. Track Your Truck’s vehicle tracking service generates a StandStill report that allows you to monitor the duration time of a vehicle that was running but motionless. Get alerted to idling trucks and wasted fuel.
Monitor Excessive Speed. Driving at speeds greater than the vehicle’s optimal fuel efficiency decreases gas mileage — and at speeds above 55 mph, gas mileage decreases rapidly. Drivers can increase miles per gallon and save a considerable amount of fuel and money simply by observing the speed limit. Setting speed limits for each of your vehicles allows you to monitor excessive speeds. Analyze your report and take the appropriate actions.
Stop Jackrabbit Starts, Harsh Braking and Aggressive Driving. Aggressive driving (speeding and harsh acceleration and braking) lowers gas mileage, which wastes gas — and it’s unsafe. You can save more than money by putting the brakes on aggressive driving. Businesses increasingly rely on GPS tracking systems to monitor their employees’ driving. Our Vehicle Tracking Service’s Driver Behavior Feature alerts you to bad driving habits, giving you the information you need to modify driving behavior.
Eliminating personal use of your vehicles prevents fuel waste and saves a considerable amount of money. Monitoring after-hours use of your vehicles is an important feature of Track Your Truck’s vehicle tracking service. Our GPS tracking software tells you where your vehicles are, where they have been and when they were driven. Once you find out that after-hours driving is a problem, you can put the brakes on unauthorized usage.
Limit Wasted Miles by Directing Drivers in Unfamiliar Areas.GPS navigation systems save time as well as fuel by providing the precise location of the destination and the most efficient route for getting there. Eliminate driving around aimlessly searching for an address while wasting fuel. Plus, it’s safer than attempting to read maps and printed directions while driving! The Google Routing feature lets you see where a vehicle is on a detailed Google map — from any computer with an Internet connection. Pinpoint locations, plan the route and communicate the information to your drivers.
