Telematics solutions offer more than just locations on a map. Yes, tracking is a fundamental aspect of the service that telematics provides, but the full story offers more avenues to improving operational efficiency. A common misconception about telematics solutions is that they only offer advantages to individuals in managing positions. This is entirely false; the benefits of implementing a solution to your fleet provide operational benefits to managers, and employees alike.
More than giving you locations on a map, telematics software has advanced to the point of being able to tell you every minute discrepancy of your high value asset or vehicle on the field. Aside from functions like Real-time tracking, and Geo-fencing which add useful metrics when looking at your “dots on a map”, functions like Reports, Historical views, Route optimization, Graph support, Alerts and notifications and many others, add significance in ways more valuable to running smooth operations. The list of features available with our telematics solution goes on forever, and mentioning and evaluating each one would take more time than I have. For more information on these however, feel free to reach us and set up a request for a demo.
Although it’s usually quite apparent as to the benefits these systems bring to individuals in managing positions in the fleet and public sector industries, the lesser known benefits that come to field workers and crews are equally manifested. In many of our case studies we have found that employee satisfaction with solutions employed is apparent after just a few months of implementation. In the office, streamlining the process of getting paper-work to become work orders or activities means crews receive only necessary information. Work orders and tasks that integrate with GIS features allow for better time management and delegation of tasks by presenting visual aides that also contribute useful information about routing, and other time management tools. The elimination of paper in the field makes for less chaotic organization and ease of mobility while performing field jobs. The digitization of everything also reduces the number of data entry errors. Crews and individual employees also have an added layer of protection and security against false claims that might be in relation to a work or service being performed or any type of accident that occurs while in the field. Having the type of data that telematics solutions like our own LiGO® telematics provide, really does add benefits to employees.
