TECH TIP: Don’t Let Traffic Run Down Your Profits

Posted on November 3, 2010 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

SUMMARY: Knowing how to avoid traffic tie-ups and manage routes will save you money and hassles when deploying your fleet.

In business, time is money and nothing limits the effectiveness of your fleet like traffic. The more time your vehicles spend in traffic, the more it ultimately costs your business. Idling vehicles waste gas, cause unnecessary wear and tear on the engine, and limit the time your employees spend on dollar-productive activities. Real-Time Traffic from Enterprise GPS solves this problem by providing live, 24/7 traffic updates 365 days a year.

Knowledge is power

Now with the click of a mouse, you can see potential traffic problems long before your drivers run into them. From accidents to lane closures to major sig alerts, Enterprise GPS' Real-Time Traffic outlines specific delays and their estimated duration. This gives you the knowledge and insight to create alternate routes to keep your vehicles on track and on time.

Less traffic, more money

Today, GPS tracking alone is not enough to maximize your fleet's effectiveness. The more intelligence and knowledge you can arm yourself with, the more you can help your drivers operate to their fullest potential. Real-Time Traffic is just one of the many advanced tools of ENTERPRISE GPS that ensures a fleet stays profitable, efficient and productive.
