The biggest obstacle for companies and organizations that have mobile workforces and fleets is liability. They do not know whether or not the drivers are safe on the road. They do not know if the drivers are using the vehicles for personal or work use, so a lot of companies may face law suits because of negligent driving. They may face lawsuits because an employee took the vehicle out on a weekend or went somewhere the vehicle was not authorized to go. In summary, these things are a huge liability for a business owner.
GPS tracking gives you complete visibility into what your drivers are doing. Visibility is not limited just to where the drivers are, but it also shows how they are driving. It reveals speeding, but also shows when a driver ventures down a back road. There are a lot of opportunities to be unsafe on the road, and GPS tracking gives you some tools to be able to manage, monitor and address unsafe driving as a company issue. Speeding is definitely the biggest concern, but it is also important to monitor hard braking, hard acceleration and other characteristics of poor driving that can lead to huge liability to the company.
