Real Time GPS Tracking
Real Time GPS Tracking technology takes advantage of Global Positioning Satellites, mobile cellular technology and the internet to provide up to the moment positioning data of the tracking device.
GPS (Global Positioning System) devices have been in use for a while now. Most people are familiar with the LCD screens in vehicles, the electronic maps that draw or voice routes to desired destinations. The same technology can be used to relay the location of any kind of physical asset that you can attach one of these real time GPS tracking devices to.
Real time trackers can save your business money and time by keeping tabs on where your property is going, (and exactly how it got there). Lost or stolen equipment or vehicles can be recovered immediately. Mounting these units on your delivery or transportation fleet can help you monitor routes, speeds traveled, and time traveled so you can manage fuel costs and labor efficiencies. A new level of security can be added when hauling expensive assets like jewelry, bank deposits, construction supplies, or hazardous materials.
And at home, these units can be covertly placed on your personal vehicles to track teen drivers. Your insurance premiums are one obvious indicator of the risky behavior that teens are known for. With a real time GPS tracking system on your car, you can basically supervise your teens when they’re away from home. Know where they are, how fast they drive, what side trips they make, and what times they are on the road. You don’t have to hide it either, by telling them that you are monitoring their every move, it’s just like sitting in the seat next to them – thus assuring that they will take it easy.
Portable, battery powered units can be transferred from one vehicle to another and recharged between uses. If you need a more permanent solution, or need units for your vehicle fleet, look for a unit that can be wired into the electrical system. With internet access, you can monitor your unit 24 hours a day from any computer in the world. Many can be programmed to give you email or text alerts if various parameters have been breached, like speed limits. Create a “virtual fence” on your map and get notified if your tracker leaves the perimeter.
You’ll need to compare prices not only on the hardware, but most will require a tracking plan. Like cell phone plans, they will be priced according to length of contract and usage. Preview the software you will be using and check for any other fees.
For many it will be buying peace of mind; for others, the savings realized in tracking employees and equipment, monitoring company or personal travel, and adding a layer of theft security will be well worth the cost.
