Vehicle Tracking System - making the right
Finding the best vehicle tracking system
for your business can be difficult, especially as there's
plenty of vehicle tracking solutions to for you to choose
from. Making the right choice can be daunting and time
In fact, there probably isn't one particular tracking
system that is definitely the best. But there will be a
vehicle tracking supplier whose products and services meet your
particular needs and who're reliable, well established and offer
good customer support at the right price.
Almost any business that has a mobile
workforce - sales people, delivery vans, engineers -
can benefit from utilising a vehicle tracking system in
Your starting point is deciding what you want the
vehicle tracking system to do and then comparing that with
the potential vehicle tracking solutions available. It'd be
wrong for you to believe that Vehicle Tracking is a commodity
product i.e. that they're all offer the same features and differ
only by price.
Using a vehicle tracking system, in isolation, won't
provide financial benefits to the business, but the data
produced by the system and how you use it will affect
Questions you should ask yourself before
you start searching for a vehicle tracking system
What you should do is to build a wish-list
of the things you need vehicle tracking to do. What
you'd like to improve and how improvements would financially impact
Some reasons why you might implement
vehicle tracking include:
When it comes to considering the vehicle
tracking companies, obviously you'll want the solution that
closely matches the benefits you need. It's probably
important not to buy without looking around and getting several
options before making a decision. In order to make the most
appropriate decision get a range of prices and solutions from
between three to five vehicle tracking suppliers.
Make sure you get terms and conditions, warranty details
and finance options from each one.
Finance options are going to be an important
consideration. Most vehicle tracking companies offer purchase
and lease or finance options and these tend to have 3 or 5 year
terms. However some tracking companies now offer more
flexible options such as "pay-as-you-go". When selecting your
method of payment, you should be fully aware of what the costs
include. Some vehicle tracking providers offer an
all-inclusive price, while others charge separately for the various
elements such as hardware, installation and data.
So what do you need to consider when looking at
Finally make sure that you ask for a
demonstration. A vehicle tracking company should be
able to offer you a live demonstration that shows their product,
its features and quantify some benefits. Often they'll
provide a tracking unit for one of your vehicles so you can see
first hand how the system functions. Ideally they'll provide
you with login details so that you can fully review the system, its
functionality and its reporting capabilities.
Many businesses are already benefiting from
vehicle tracking. By simply making one extra delivery or
service call a week, or reducing fuel consumption, a business can
quickly generate a return on their vehicle tracking investment.
