Vehicles are an important part of any business. They are used to carry goods, ferry employers, make deliveries etc. Therefore it is very important that the vehicles stay in their peak health and this is only possible when the vehicle maintenance is followed by the schedule. There are many factors which affect the maintenance of the vehicle and a majority of them are user dependent.
The use of GPS (Global Positioning System) trackers in the vehicles can help the companies track their vehicle maintenance in a simple and easier manner. GPS tracking systems employ various techniques and analysis to compute the state of the vehicle. Mileage and idling are two main causes that cause vehicle deterioration. GPS trackers play and important role in Vehicle maintenance by:
Giving Scheduled Reminders:
A part of vehicle maintenance includes timely oil change, brake fluid change, tire rotations, break checks, spark plug cleaning and engine tune ups. These activities are to be done on regular intervals. GPS trackers can help companies set up reminders for the same in all the vehicles. These reminders can be done in such a way that the fleet does not come to a standstill. These reminders can be received in the way of blinking lights, messages and emails. This will prevent breakdown of the vehicles. Thus reducing repair costs too.
Moderate Driving Time:
The more the vehicle is driven the sooner the maintenance need arises. Therefore optimizing driving time is very necessary. Moderated driving time means less money is paid on the maintenance and less time wasted on repairs. Directions can be given to the drivers in real time to find out the shortest route. Route directions can be given to the drivers before they start driving or en route too thus saving time on travel and vehicles use. Also this will mean faster arrivals and departures.
Up to date maintenance of the vehicle means that there are reduced breakdowns. This means reduced costs of towing the vehicles in remote areas and busy roads. When a vehicle breaks down on the road then you will have to send another vehicle to shift the cargo and transport and this means additional costs for labor and waste of time. If you have a maintained vehicle then there is less chances of breakdown.
Diminish engine idle time:
The engine of the vehicle is either meant to be running or shut down. An idle engine will burn more fuel and no place to expand its energy. Eventually the engine will break down and the emissions will start to leak out damaging the other parts of the engine assembly. Stalled or broken engine will cost huge repair costs. With the use of GPS trackers the companies can monitor the idle time for each vehicle which means they can advise the drivers to cut down on the idle time saving on maintenance costs.
Everything and anything that happens to the vehicle while it is on the road or standing in the shed can be recorded by the GPS tracker. This means that as a business owner or manager you can get regular reports for each of the vehicle. Over a period of time these reports can become a invaluable assest to the organization because they will play an important role in giving you the automatic overview of each vehicle and you will be able to keep a view of everything and control too.
Better vehicle maintenance directly means better business. You can reducing the driving time, the billing time, fuel costs, use scheduled reminders to make sure that nobody in your employ is skimping on keeping the vehicle in top shape. This means that you save more money and make more money by increasing the productivity and having happy customers.
