5 common misconceptions about vehicle tracking software
There are a lot of misconceptions about using and implementing a vehicle tracking software in a fleet. That's why today we want to debunk these misconceptions and show you what this kind of system can do for you.
1. Vehicle tracking software is only for large fleets
Many fleet managers think that tracking systems only serve to locate vehicles. Therefore, only large fleets would benefit from using this technology. But what they do not know is that the tracking system offers much more than that. Useful analytics, better routes, fuel economy and better driver behavior are just a few of the benefits a fleet can get from using this system, no matter what size it has.
2. All vehicle tracking systems are the same
Until we start using a tracking system we do not realize all the possibilities it offers us. Each system is different and, in addition, if we opt for a white label tracking system, we have many possibilities of personalization. In addition, it is possible to choose the type of hardware that we use with our system. We can create a complete system that does not require an unreasonable investment for the company.
3. Implementing a vehicle tracking software is hard
Many fleet managers fear the process of implementing a tracking system in their fleet. They think the interface will be complicated to use or that their employees will feel monitored and reject the system. But this does not have to be this way. The software is user-friendly and anyone can learn to use it. The system has so many advantages that, if presented properly, drivers and employees will be the first to want to benefit from them.
4. You can only use the vehicle tracking system in the office
Tracking systems no longer keep fleet managers hooked to their desks. Nowadays, these systems have interfaces and applications prepared for smartphones and tablets. A fleet manager can always take their system with them and work from anywhere. All the advantages of having a fleet management software now fit in the palm of your hand.
5. A vehicle tracking software is very expensive
The price of a vehicle tracking system can seem exorbitant at first sight. But today we can opt for a white label tracking system, which reduces the initial investment costs. In addition, the system is customizable. Each fleet manager can choose what services they want to hire and what improvements they want to implement in their fleet. That also means that the system adapts to our company, and it is not the company that has to adapt to the system.
As you can see, a vehicle tracking system is neither as expensive or complicated or static as you thought it would be. If you do not already have one of these systems in your fleet, do not think about it any more. Contact us to clarify all your doubts and create the perfect system for you.
