Best Vehicle Tracking Solutions: Comprehensive Market Review

When it comes to buying your fleet vehicle tracking solutions, the choice you go for can significantly impact your operations. High quality GPS tracking systems can offer a whole host of benefits, including higher efficiency, lower fuel consumption, reduced operational overheads, improved driver safety and greater customer satisfaction.

That’s why it’s important to opt for a system which can provide your business with the features it needs to fully optimise its operations.

In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at some of the best features vehicle trackers currently have to offer on the market, and why Fleetsmart should be your number one choice.

Top Vehicle Tracking Features On the Market

Real Time GPS Tracking with Google Maps Integration

This enables you to precisely locate your vans within a 5-metre distance, ensuring accurate insights into their whereabouts at all times.

Whether you're at the office, working remotely, or even vacationing abroad, you can access comprehensive fleet information from any desktop or mobile device with an internet connection, regardless of your location. This ensures you stay informed and connected, no matter where you are in the world.

At Fleetsmart, our state-of-the-art GPS mapping technology utilises Google mapping, incorporating satellite images and street view to provide top-notch real-time vehicle tracking.

Excel Vehicle Reports

Extensive data analysis with vehicle tracking reports allows you to pinpoint areas where your business may be losing money due to inefficient route choices and driving habits. By identifying and addressing these issues, you can enhance your business's efficiency and reduce operating costs.

As part of our fleet-tracking package, Fleetsmart offers a comprehensive report suite utilising Excel spreadsheets to deliver a wealth of fleet management information. This includes details such as vehicle start and stop times, deviations from the route, instances of speeding, harsh braking/acceleration, and prolonged periods of idling.

Journey Replay

This allows you to visualise where your van initiated and ceased its journey, deviations from the route, instances of speeding, idling, and harsh acceleration/braking.

With Journey Replay, you can precisely track when a van reached its destination, which proves invaluable for delivery fleets expected to make timely deliveries. This feature also aids in resolving disputes regarding delivery times, ensuring transparency and accuracy in your operations.

Our Journey Replay feature enables you to review all the information provided in the reports by replaying the entire journey from start to finish.

Geo-Fence Alerts

Geo-fence alerts will promptly notify you whenever a van tracker enters or exits a designated area of your choice. You have the flexibility to set up geo-fences based on both location and time, allowing immediate awareness if your vans depart from your premises outside of designated hours.This helps mitigate the risks of theft and misuse of company vehicles.

This is just one application of geo-fences for your business. With the capability to establish multiple digital geo-fences at your discretion, you can have peace of mind knowing you'll always receive alerts if a van ventures into unauthorised areas

Driver Behaviour Reports

Through comprehensive Driver Behaviour Reports, monitoring your drivers' driving habits allows you to proactively provide additional training where necessary. This targeted approach helps minimise instances of harsh braking, rapid acceleration, and speeding, all of which contribute to decreased fuel efficiency and increased costs for your vehicles.

Email and SMS Reports

With Fleetsmart's Email and SMS Reports, you'll stay informed about your vans even when away from your desk. Email and SMS alerts offer an effortless way for employers to stay connected with their businesses when online tracking software isn't accessible.

At Fleetsmart, we know that many employers spend significant time away from their office and computer which is why we offer email and SMS reports as part of our standard package.

Business owners and managers can opt to receive periodic fleet and vehicle status reports via email and SMS alerts. Alternatively, they can choose to be notified when vehicles exceed speed limits, stray from designated service areas, or display unusual behaviour.

Live DVLA Lookup

At Fleetsmart, we're dedicated to simplifying your role as a fleet manager. That's why we've developed a feature that automatically imports tax and MOT data from the DVLA, ensuring your records are consistently up-to-date
