If you’re a fleet manager interested in cutting-edge efficiency and protection for your vehicles, a video telematics system is probably on your radar. The concept is simple: Use real-time driver- and road-facing video to get a complete picture of what’s happening inside and outside every vehicle in your fleet. But picking the right system can be difficult. Here, we’ll discuss video telematics basics, and answer the questions you have about installing a system in your fleet.
The best field service management tools pull double duty. They make it possible for managers and dispatchers to “see” all trucks at a glance for better decision-making. And they also make drivers’ on-road experiences safer and more efficient.
GPS Trackit’s field service management tools accomplish these tasks with three essential features, among others: artificial intelligence-powered in-cabin alerting, two-way messaging between driver and base, and fleet-wide driver scorecards.
As you might expect, we get lots of questions from fleet owners about telematics for fleet truck management: How it works, what the benefits are, and if it’s right for their business. We’re here to answer those questions for you. Read More
