Knowing when, where, how and why it happens, enables you to take action, for example, by making your personnel aware of how they can avoid fuel waste.
2. Productivity improvement
Productivity improves when you can monitor assets utilization and progress and personnel presence in real-time. Knowing exactly the progress of each single assets, enables better job allocations for increased efficiency. With the help of specific reports, it is possible to understand the areas that need improvement.
3. Customer service improvement
If you work more effectively, your customers are happier. Customer service becomes much quicker if, for example, you are able to monitor a delivery in real time. Technology allows you to know your customers better and respond to their requirements in a timely and more effective way, or even proactively. Customer satisfaction becomes customer loyalty.

7. Insurance premiums reduction
An onboard GPS is a very practical and effective way of having full control on a vehicle’s utilization and driver’s behavior.
