No matter the size of your fleet, you can save time and money using a fleet management system
Fleet management is the management of a fleet of vehicles belonging to a company and can include a wide range of functions and tasks, such as management of staff (drivers but also mechanics in some companies), of fuel costs, purchases and policies, vehicle investment, overall fleet costs (fuel, maintenance…), safety…
We know how challenging it is to be a fleet manager or, for smaller companies, simply the person in charge of running a fleet of vehicles. However at Legacy we make a fleet manager’s job a lot easier! To begin the process, we are able to track the organization equipment no matter the location through a GPS technology.
Vehicle tracking technology has been very popular for almost a couple of decades. Also known as GPS tracking, vehicle tracking is used by fleets for efficiency and cost-saving purposes, but also by businesses of any type and size that depend on the use of vehicles to develop their activity and wish to streamline their daily operations.
What is vehicle tracking?
Vehicle tracking, or GPS tracking, is a technology that combines the tracking of the location of a vehicle with a software interface that displays vehicle data. That data can be later used by companies as business intelligence in order to make informed decisions.
In order to capture vehicle data, a tracking device is installed inside the vehicles that have to be tracked. The device collects vehicle data of different types, from the turning on and off of the engine, to fuel consumption, to the working of vehicle-connected devices, to mention just a few, and matches the data with the location.
Location data is offered in most cases by the GPS (Global Positioning Service) radio-navigation system – hence the name GPS tracking – though in some other specific cases different location technologies can be used (for example, GLONASS, a satellite navigation system, or even other type of location technology).
