Not only does reducing operational costs significantly affect the bottom line, but construction fleet equipped with GPS tracking also directly impacts employee productivity and customer service.
Considering the value of heavy equipment & machinery used in the construction industry, cost of implementing GPS vehicle tracking system is so insignificant while the benefits are enormous.
iFleet.Africa’s vehicle IN/OUT management solution resolves the problem of unauthorized vehicle usage, irregular driving patterns, and unplanned stops. Easily accessed historical data allows you to create optimized vehicle routes.
When implemented together with trip schedule, it allows you to quickly identify possible unauthorized vehicle usage or route deviations.
Construction companies fail when their budget prediction goes wrong. Fleet used in construction industry consume huge quantities of fuel and if your staff misuse them, through unauthorized usage or excessive idling, results could be even worse.
An automation system will help you regain control over fuel usage. Knowing the characteristics of how the vehicle is driven will allow you to reinforce operational best practices based on available data. Review driver behavior where excessive speeding, harsh braking and heavy acceleration occur often as this is risking your driver’s and vehicle’s safety
There is nothing more annoying than a theft incident or someone illegally towing your vehicle away.
However, having a GPS tracking device installed in your heavy equipment, enables you to track it down and notify the officials quickly.
Having an iFleet.Africa GPS device installed, you would get alerted the very moment when your vehicle is taken out of the parking space. What if you could get alerts when the door is opened or ignition is switched on? That’s right, fleet automation is the key to your success in efficiently managing your fleet force.
Maintenance of heavy equipment in construction sites is also a cost concern and each minute wasted on project site could delay your entire project schedule, damage your reputation and affect your profit margin. Getting notifications for periodic services will help you avoid such unexpected down time.
Fact is, you will not know, if your vehicle is being used at the site, as expected or being taken away for other personal works. Fleet owners have this worry and they suspect that their drivers may be using the company vehicles for personal use. This puts the company at increased risk and adds more wear&tear to the vehicles.
Creating Work zones and Point of Interests (PoI) as virtual fences on map (geofences) could help you reduce unauthorized usage as the system sends you alert once vehicle enters or leaves the created geofence.
