Businesses incorporating GPS tracking are shown as some of the fastest growing in the market today; its diversity makes it a flexible tool. For instance ArgoTrak—a locally based Naples, FL, business working closely alongside software corporation Position Logic—is one of an ever-growing list of companies that utilize GPS tracking. The software has been used in everything from tracking data for long distance transportation to monitoring client company equipment to individual purposes. Just about anything you want followed—ArgoTrak can keep an eye on it.
Service providers like Position Logic use their proprietary software to work with existing client hardware, almost every known kind, in keeping employees and equipment accounted for. For instance ArgoTrak utilizes the program mainly in conjunction with fleet management (like long-haul truck and taxi transportation or rental companies) but can also provide surveillance assistance to individuals: senior citizens, small children, personal cars and bikes, and family pets. A GPS tracker is placed on each vehicle or individual and monitored 24-7 from ArgoTrak. When needed, ArgoTrak can arrange a pre-determined periphery that when the item or person crosses the line, ArgoTrak’s client receives a message about the violation. Other data gathered from the installed tracking device includes start or stop time, time spent sitting still, and speed or location of the vehicle at any point of the day.
What are the benefits?
This kind of GPS tracking accountability can greatly economize a company’s resources. Employees are monitored whenever the company vehicle is in their care and allows managers to find out whether it’s being used solely for business purposes. No longer can workers use their company’s gas or time for personal or possibly unlawful reasons. Managers will know if they’ve been speeding past legal limits, making unauthorized side stops, or sitting anywhere for too long without a good excuse. If time is of utmost importance as is often the case with emergency service companies like plumbing or electrical, management can dispatch—thanks to GPS tracking—the specialist closest to the area of the service call.
In addition, ArgoTrak’s GPS tracking provides safety for individuals who require constant supervision for both medical reasons (Alzheimer’s, dementia, mentally impaired) and family reasons (young children and teenagers).
