MANHATTAN, NY - More fleets are using GPS tracking units — devices that use the Global Positioning System to determine the exact location of a vehicle, person, or other equipment asset and record its location at given intervals — to stop wasting, according to foxbusiness.com. It also acquires other important data through a variety of sensors connected to the device. GPS and wireless technology can help equipment fleet managers, contractors, equipment rental, and construction companies instantly and easily monitor how much time vehicles and equipment spend idling each day. Managers can then set standards to reduce this mishandled time, thereby saving fuel costs.
Also, sophisticated GPS technology can help perform predictive analysis, monitoring equipment and high-value assets remotely and ensuring that vehicles are secure and kept in top shape.
