Overhead costs are a concern for any fleet in the service industry. Labor costs can be specifically worrisome as they equate to a large amount of that overhead cost. The implementation of a GPS tracking system, like GPS Insight, will reduce costs. Monitor hours worked from the beginning to end of each day, optimize routes for maximum efficiency, reduce vehicle down-time, and more that will eliminate unnecessary payroll dollars.
One great way to start would be to monitor your fleet’s daily routes to ensure productivity. For example, run a report for route efficiency and track which employees are consistently taking longer routes than needed. This will prevent drivers from taking the scenic roads to tack on a few extra hours to their time sheet. You can also take advantage of simplified dispatching from the dashboard interface. Provide your fleet their daily routes sent to a Garmin PND inside the cab that will direct them from job to job. This will set your fleet up for an efficient day, every day. Adding these efficiencies to your fleet operations will save you time and money.
