GPS Tracking

Given the tremendous amount of complex variables and unique aspects of every business, DRIVING FORCE conducts a thorough and complimentary GPS needs analysis to establish your company’s priorities with regard to improving your fleet operations with the use of these tools.

Return on GPS Investment

Significant returns can be achieved using DRIVING FORCE’s GPS devices and software solutions to track fleet equipment, vehicles and employees. The individual ROI for your company depends on factors specific to your organization, however many businesses have experienced savings through improvements to six key areas

  1. Safety – Locate personnel and assets in remote locations. Be aware of emergency situations sooner and see exactly where a distress signal came from.
  2. Fuel Savings and Speed Reduction – According to Natural Resources Canada, driving 120 km/h consumes 20% more fuel than travelling 100 km/h. Reducing speed saves fuel and improves safe driving practices.
  3. Employee Efficiency and Billings – Be able to efficiently document and verify employee hours on the job. Significantly improves project cost control and time for managers and accounting departments.
  4. Asset Protection and Recovery – Know when vehicles or equipment have moved and where they have gone, even in remote locations. Remotely monitor engine performance to ensure that assets are operated responsibly.
  5. Green Initiatives – A typical three litre engine wastes 1/3 litre of fuel for every 10 minutes of idling. Knowing precisely how much your fleet idles allows for focused reduction programs and saves significantly on fuel costs.
  6. Maintenance Cost Reductions – Companies typically experience a 5% - 10% reduction in overall maintenance costs compared to non-monitored fleets, due to improved servicing schedules and reduced down time.

Customized Data Analysis

Using data from any GPS devices, DRIVING FORCE can provide customized data analysis services, such as tracking the utilization cycles of your fleet assets (regardless of whether they are owned, leased or rented). This type of analysis can result in significant cost savings as you can improve asset assignments and more accurately forecast vehicle and equipment needs. A separate charge for these customized services will apply.
