How to Use GPS Vehicle Tracking Systems for Efficient Fleet Management

The benefits of GPS vehicle tracking systems such as Zonar and Synovia go beyond simply
ensuring the safety of your precious passengers. These are powerful tools which can revolutionize your fleet management, helping you optimize your system in ways that simply aren't possible with hand-collected data.

What To Look For When Buying A Vehicle Monitoring System

When you're ready to take the jump into route management software and being able to keep track of entire fleets of vehicles, there are certain features that anyone should look out for in their brand new system. There are all sorts of systems that can make sure you can keep track of buses or any sort of fleet of vehicles, all of them with different services and features that can do completely different tasks. However, there are a core group of four features in any vehicle monitoring system that you can easily put on your short list right now.

Helpful Tips For Vehicle Monitoring

If you're responsible for overseeing school bus operations – or any sort of fleet of land vehicles – I don't have to tell you what a challenging task it is. Your cargo is beyond precious, you have potentially hundreds or thousands of “clients” (parents) to answer to, and in the meantime, you have to constantly do everything you can do to keep costs down. But without compromising safety, of course.

Satellite Vehicle Tracking: It's More Important Than You'd Think

Do you know where your fleet is at all times? While it may sound impossible, it is actually quite possible to be able to know exactly where your entire fleet is even when part of it might be parked somewhere and another in-use and going along with all of their different routes and schedules. And it doesn't mean having to check in with each individual vehicle via radio or telephone any longer.  It can simply mean checking a computer screen for all of their updated location and historical routing information.

Why You Should Install GPS Vehicle Fleet Tracking

Now is an especially good time to be asking yourself: Are my school district's buses as safe for students to ride as they can be?

Use A Vehicle Monitoring System To Stay Organized

One of the most difficult tasks when it comes to managing dozens of vehicles and drivers is the nightmare of having unorganized documents on all of that routing data and information. Missing documents can mean a very bad time when it comes to reporting, auditing, and redistricting and could potentially mean losing your job if the organization is really bad. Instead of having to spend so much time properly categorizing and cataloguing all of the work that goes into route management, let the computer do it for you with the help of a vehicle monitoring system.

Using Your Vehicle Routing Software To Get The Big Bucks

Running any sort of contracted school bus service is a difficult job, with razor-thin profit margins.  Far too many schools are seeing their budgets cut every year, putting more pressure on you to squeeze as much as you possibly can out of your fleets and systems. 

Vehicle Monitoring System: 5 Ways Not To Use It

Back in the old days, keeping track of each individual vehicle's gas consumption, mileage, and possibly repairs meant a lot of reports, careful tracking, and possible human errors in the system. And when it comes to bigger fleets of buses that are transporting kids everyday, having to track and monitor each bus was especially difficult. Unfortunately, things couldn't be as efficient, but now we have the ability to keep track of an entire fleet through technology and save money while doing it.
