Companies spend thousands of dollars making sure their products get safely to their destination. With GPS technology, it is possible not only to increase safety, but also to reduce costs for fleet managers.

GPS Technology Increases Safety
GPS technology increases safety by giving managers the ability to know where their fleet is at any given time. Managers no longer need to worry about the location of their vehicles. They can see where it is on their computer. If a manager needs to change the route, he or she can see where a vehicle is on a map, and tell the driver exactly where to turn in order to follow the new route.

GPS Technology Decreases Costs
What about costs? Speeding tickets are expensive. With GPS, managers know when a driver is speeding. Actually, they can know exactly how fast the driver is going. Managers can also see if a vehicle isn’t moving, or if it’s going somewhere without permission. In other words, GPS gives managers nearly complete control over their fleet.

Geoforce Inc.: An Example of GPS Technology in Action
Geoforce Inc. is a company that “uses a blend of GPS, RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) and other wireless technologies to track and monitor assets via a single software platform.”  The company uses a cloud technology to track and locate vehicles. There’s no software to install. The information is available 24/7 from the Internet.

In a recent press release, Geoforce announced they were offering their GPS tracking technology for free to oil and gas fleet managers. Their service is free with a 60 month subscription, or at a reduced price with a 36 month agreement.

Daniel Irizarry, Geoforce’s Head of Sales says, “Providing the GPS device for free will provide an instant return on investment for oilfield service managers by improving operational efficiency, enhancing customer service, lowering fuel costs, and reducing risks and exposure.”

Geoforce Inc. is an example of how GPS technology helps businesses provide better services while lowering operational costs. In today’s competitive world, it is important to have complete control over every aspect of business. GPS technology gives that control.
