Enterprise GPS tracking systems can help fleet owners hone in on driver skills to reduce accidents and smooth out on the road skills.

By Enterprise GPS

TUSTIN, Calif. - GPS tracking is one of the most powerful tools currently available for fleet owners and managers. It quickly improves driver productivity. It makes companies considerably more efficient and more profitable. And it noticeably reduces fuel costs as well. But one of the biggest effects it has on an organization is the role it plays in improving driver safety and reducing a company's risk of liability damages.

Indeed, one of the most significant expenses in running a business today is the high cost of insuring and maintaining a fleet of vehicles. Liability claims from careless driving can quickly cut into the profits of any organization large or small. And while you can't eliminate liability risk entirely, arming your fleet with the advanced tracking solutions of Enterprise GPS will allow you to dramatically reduce it quickly, easily, and economically.

Enterprise GPS tracking allows you to:

1) Change driver behavior

Traditionally, bad driving habits are hard to break. But with GPS tracking, you not only can monitor poor driving behaviors, you can correct them almost immediately. Drivers tend to be careless. It's simply the nature of the business. But poor driving habits really are a matter of awareness. The bottom line is that when drivers know they are being tracked, they modify their behavior almost immediately, which reduces accidents, tickets, and careless wear and tear on your vehicles.
