Mobile tracking - keeping an eye on things while out of the office


GPS tracking is a useful tool for dispatchers in the office to use to assign drivers the most efficient routes and schedules. The features available on mobile devices can help your clients' drivers find their way to their destinations using the most efficient route possible. GPS tracking is also lets management keep track of drivers and other employees who do most of their work outside of the office--letting them keep an eye on things even when they can't be physically present.

Mobile GPS tracking apps can also make it easier for management to get out of the office and into the field. Mobile GPS tracking provides fleet managers with the tools they need to monitor overall operations and individual driver performance and behavior remotely. Mobile GPS tracking helps the fleet manager to stay on top of the rest of his operations even while he is spending time with one of the drivers. If the fleet manager is doing a ride-along with one of the drivers or is out doing field work himself, he doesn't have to be disconnected from the rest of the business. The tools available make it easy for fleet manager to take the features he needs out into the field with him. With mobile GPS managements, the office can follow you anywhere.

For GPS entrepreneurs, this provides yet another valuable selling point for you to use when pitching the GPS tracking services to your prospects. Fleet managers work with people who spend most of every day out on the road and away from the office. The ability to work remotely can help fleet managers keep tabs on operations without being tied to their desk all day. The GPS tracking services you provided along with the mobile nature of the apps can give your clients the freedom to be more active in the field instead of stuck in the office.

Position Logic's feature-rich mobile apps have an easy-to-use interface that makes it possible for your clients to access the platform from anywhere with cellular Internet or Wi-Fi connection. The mobile apps provide real-time tracking of vehicles and other tracked assets.

Another one of the side benefits to your business of the mobile GPS tracking apps is that they demo well. If you are speaking to a prospect about the GPS tracking services you provide, you can quickly pull out your phone or tablet to show them exactly what the platform looks like and how it works. By having a working version of the app with you, it makes it easier to demonstrate its value proposition to your prospects.

The demo is a central part of the sales process. It is where you have the opportunity to showcase the value of the services you provide to prospects who have agreed to hear your pitch. While demoing the system on your phone or tablet will not be the primary way you close deals (they will likely also want to see the screens their dispatchers will be using), it can be very helpful for doing a quick introduction to your services and acting as a teaser to schedule a full demo.
