What is Vehicle Tracking?
Vehicle tracking utilises GPS technology to monitor and track the location of your vehicles and assets, all in real-time. Easily find out where your vehicles are and where they’ve been, using our live vehicle tracking systems.
Our bespoke vehicle tracking software, Trakm8 Insight, boasts incredible GPS tracking technology and can take your fleet management to the next level.
Track vehicles in real-time
Experience live vehicle tracking through our user-friendly, asset tracking software. View all vehicles on a live map, whether they are parked up or on the move, ensuring that you know where your assets and vehicles are located at all times.
Truck tracking and telematics
Our live vehicle tracking software also works well for delivery and haulage companies with fleets made up of larger vehicles, such as trucks, lorries and HGVs. Truck tracking and in-depth telematics are crucial to fleet managers wanting to monitor delivery fuel expenses, effective route planning and daily work activity times.
Our GPS, vehicle tracking software allows fleet managers to gain valuable insight into the behaviours of truck drivers to ensure safety, efficiency and customer satisfaction.
Key features of fleet vehicle tracking
Vehicle tracking helps you monitor your fleet activity
With Trakm8’s intelligent GPS tracking technology, fleet managers can successfully monitor fleet activity and keep track of important areas that need to be reported on.
Business and private mileage
Help your drivers remain HMRC-compliant with easy business and private mileage categorisation, ideal for P11D mileage claims and management.
Users can select a business or private journey at the touch of a button and can change the status of historic journeys via our app, made specifically for drivers.
Easily create geo-fences
Geo-fencing enables you to easily create digital boundaries on maps and receive alerts when a vehicle crosses said geo-fence. These could be around points of interest such as:
- Customer premises.
- Insight into arrival and departure times.
- Information on road charging areas such as the London ULEX or Clean Air Zones.
Geo-fencing can also alert you to any unauthorised usage of company vehicles such as out of hours use.
Benefits of GPS vehicle tracking
Our live vehicle tracking and GPS fleet monitoring has huge benefits for business owners, fleet managers and drivers.
Improves customer service and saves costs
Do you receive last-minute customer requests that aren’t always do-able due to your current vehicle tracking capabilities and visibility? The Find Nearest Vehicles feature of Insight’s fleet tracking enables you to be even more responsive to last-minute customer requests or emergencies.
Quickly identify the closest vehicle for the job and dispatch it to the customer location – this is a popular feature with businesses engaged in delivery, breakdown recovery or mobile service and repair.
Easily optimise driver routes
Through tracking driver routes and location, fleet managers can easily benefit from Trakm8’s route optimisation capabilities by calculating the most efficient routes and allowing drivers to devote more time to the job at hand.
Schedule repairs and maintenance with ease
With real-time insight into vehicle and driver metrics, you can easily track when a specific vehicle in your fleet requires, or will soon require, maintenance or repair work. Save time and costs through predetermined upkeep of crucial vehicles that are integral to your business’s day-to-day operations.
Vehicle tracking for grey fleet
Devices such as the Connect 200 make managing your grey fleet simple. Grey fleet is the term for vehicles owned and used by employees for business use. The Connect 200 is plugged into a cigarette lighter socket or aux socket, making it super easy to switch between business and private journeys.
Great flexibility is achieved with devices being able to be switched from one vehicle to another.
Vehicle tracking for HGVs and vans
One of the biggest concerns for fleet managers overseeing large vehicles, such as HGVs, is increasing fuel costs. Having a vehicle tracking system in place can help smooth out daily operations, allowing fleet managers to identify areas in which they can improve route efficiencies and reduce fuel costs.
Trakm8 also offers trailer tracking for HGVs and trucks, helping transport operators to quickly locate and identify assets that are sitting idle.
