Van trackers and car trackers are both GPS-based tracking systems that allow businesses to monitor the location and activity of their vehicles.
While both types of tracking systems share many similarities, there are some key differences between them that set them apart.
As a company that specialises in installing telematics vehicle and fleet tracking systems, Fleetsmart understands these differences and can help businesses choose the best option for their needs.
Van trackers are designed specifically for use with vans and other commercial vehicles. These trackers are typically larger and more robust than car trackers, as they need to withstand the demands of commercial use.
One of the key advantages of van trackers is that they are ideal for use in fleets, allowing fleet managers to monitor the location and activity of all their vehicles in real-time. This can help managers to optimise their routes, reduce fuel consumption, and improve the overall efficiency of their operations.
Van trackers can also be used to monitor the performance of individual drivers, tracking behaviours such as harsh braking, acceleration, and cornering, as well as idling and speeding.
This data can be used to identify drivers who need additional training or coaching, helping to improve the safety of the fleet.
Car trackers, on the other hand, are designed for use with cars and other smaller vehicles. These trackers are typically smaller and more discreet than van trackers, as they are designed to be installed in vehicles that are used for personal or commercial use.
Fleetsmart telematics devices no matter their size or intended usage have been designed to be sleek and almost undetectable.
One of the key advantages of car trackers is that they can be used to monitor the location of individual vehicles in real-time, which can be particularly useful for businesses that need to keep track of their vehicles for security purposes, such as car rental companies and car dealerships.
Car trackers can also be used to monitor the driving behaviour of individual drivers, tracking behaviours such as speeding, harsh braking, and acceleration, as well as idling and fuel consumption.
This data can be used to identify drivers who need additional training or coaching, helping to improve the safety and efficiency of the fleet.
Regardless of whether a business chooses a van tracker or a car tracker, there are many advantages of vehicle tracking for businesses.
By monitoring driver behaviour, businesses can also identify drivers who need additional training or coaching, helping to improve the safety of the fleet and reduce the number of accidents. Vehicle tracking can also help businesses to provide better customer service by providing accurate delivery times and notifying customers of delays or changes in schedules.
In addition to these benefits, vehicle tracking can also help businesses to reduce costs and increase revenue.
By optimising routes and reducing fuel consumption, businesses can save money on fuel and maintenance costs. Vehicle tracking can also help businesses to increase revenue by enabling them to take on more jobs and increase the efficiency of their operations.
