How much money is your company flushing away on excessive fuel usage? Knowing that answer is critical to saving money and sparing vehicles.
Unfortunately, it's a question most livery business owners can't answer definitively...or even worse, one they simply don't want to address at all. But the reality is chauffeurs nationwide are wasting gas daily, and it's cutting into the profits of companies of all sizes.
Traditionally, bad driving habits are hard to break. With GPS tracking, however, you not only can monitor poor driving behaviors, but you can correct them almost immediately. As a result, you're profits will increase just as fast.
Below are three critical ways Enterprise GPS tracking solutions can lower your fuel costs and put you back on course to becoming a more efficient and profitable company.
1. Stop excessive idling: According to the California Energy Commission, idling burns about a half-mile's worth of gas every minute. When you realize how many minutes or sometimes hours your drivers are sitting there idling in your vehicles, you realize that this is one of the biggest factors in wasting fuel.
Enterprise GPS allows you know exactly when and for how long your drivers are idling throughout their routes. You can monitor it live, review daily idling reports, and even have excessive idling alerts notify you when a driver has exceeded a limit you specify. Once drivers are aware that you are monitoring this aspect of their driving, they correct the problem almost instantly.
