GPS: Guide helps you find best solution
Fleetmatics-owned company SageQuest have released their 2013 Buyer’s Guide for GPS vehicle tracking.
The guide, designed to help fleet operators select the best solution, provides an authoritative overview of the different types of vehicle tracking systems in the UK market.
It also provides information specific to enterprise fleet operators, helping them critically evaluate multiple options and choose the system that best meets their business requirements.
Peter Bingham, UK Managing Director of SageQuest, said selecting the right provider was vital for businesses, given the average contract agreement is three years.
“Choosing a provider for your company’s GPS tracking solution is an important decision – a decision that your business will have to live with for a long time,” he said.
“That’s why it’s essential to spend the time in ensuring you are opting for the right solution to not only manage your company’s long-term business needs but to also ensure you are given the right level of customer service and support from your chosen supplier.
“The SageQuest Buyer’s Guide makes it simple for enterprise fleet operators to know what to look for in a system and this is important because when it comes to GPS tracking systems, a one-size-fits-all solution doesn’t always have the capabilities required to manage large fleets of more than 50 vehicles”.
Thorough explanation of the four key capabilities of GPS tracking solutions – data collection, data transmission, turning data into information and customer presentation – are explained in-depth in The Buyer’s Guide.
The publication also highlights the pros and cons for both handheld solutions and real-time vehicle-based solutions.
Demonstration of how GPS tracking systems are used by other companies to carry out operations such as auditing timecards and billing, real-time dispatch and supervision, eliminating unwanted driver behaviors and driving improvements in efficiency and production are also included.
The Buyer’s Guide was first published in 2007, with a survey of readers indicating 86% felt more comfortable in making a purchasing decision after viewing it.
Fleetmatics serve more than 19,000 customers, tracking more than 356,000 vehicles worldwide.
