Vehicle tracking systems are an important part of any fleet management system. These systems can be GPS-based, GLONASS-based, or based on a cellular triangulation platform. Tracking systems provide information about engine diagnostics, driving behavior, and geolocation. Vehicle location, direction, and speed are also checked by these systems, and this information is transmitted to the fleet management database through terrestrial and satellite communication.
Fleet management software performs a series of specific tasks such as recording driver and vehicle details, tracking of procurement costs, programming of maintenance and servicing tasks, import of fuel transactions, and evaluating fleet performance via reports and charts. With these numerous cutting-edge features, fleet management solutions help travel and transport enterprises to boost productivity while minimizing risk and cost.
