Running a small business also involves many responsibilities to help you keep everything up and running. In most cases, you might wear more than two hats because you are still trying to make sense of your ideal organisational chart or thinking about which professionals to hire based on your operations. Since I have a few vehicles for my small delivery service, I immediately looked for a fleet management solution because I thought it would help me manage the business, and it turned out I was right.
I wish to help everyone by sharing my experience and giving a few things that may help you with whatever concern you have. Let us explore the FAQs clients have, and I will answer them:
QUESTION #1: WHY IS IT NECESSARY FOR ALMOST ALL BUSINESSES
Suppose you have a fleet of vehicles, such as delivery trucks, motorcycles, and taxis for private rides. Since your employees use them daily and you cannot observe them, having a technological system or software that lets you know everything helps. You can track real time location to know which route they take during the day or because you need to match their activity with their salaries.
QUESTION #2: DOES IT IMPROVE SAFETY WITHIN THE COMPANY?
Yes! When I thought of procuring the best monitoring system that suits my small business, I immediately pondered about safety because you can track vehicles when someone reports a situation, or you have heard something from the police, such as a nearby accident. On top of that, the software records everything, so when you need to gather evidence of something or try to prove a claim, the data will provide valuable information!
QUESTION #3: IS IT HARD TO LOOK FOR SOFTWARE AND PLATFORMS?
Yes and no because despite taking time, money, and effort, all you need to do is trust the right company. In my case, I searched online and asked for recommendations from people I thought would give me something valuable, and gladly they did. Someone even referred a car tracker expert in Singapore to me and went on a meeting with them, but we did not align because they specialised in something else. However, they still helped me find the company I trusted with my business.
QUESTION #4: DO THEY POSITIVELY AFFECT FINANCES?
Yes, because suppose a situation where one of your vehicles got into a roadblock because they took the inefficient route. In this case, lacking a tracking platform might have cost you more money because you failed to provide a contingency plan or avoid a problem. It can be missing a valuable delivery time or meeting a deadline that could have made your business even better, and you would not want to miss that. In short, having a seamless and unified fleet management solution benefits your company’s finances.
