  • Posted road speed and current speed of travel of the vehicle and whether it is speeding:
    • Effect: fuel costs, company image on branded vehicles, vehicle wear / tear maintenance costs

    • Effect: fuel costs, labour costs and customer service

Here is some detailed information about the vehicle trips history:

Trips history is recorded in two ways. 

1. The trips history is shown as a bread crumb trail on the map, showing the route used. See here:

This is a general overview of the breadcrumb trail:

2. The trips history is recorded in a “time sheet“, spreadsheet format showing information as described below.


>>>>>>>>>> DO YOUR DRIVERS GET PAID BY THE HOUR? <<<<<<<<<<<

For many companies, one of the most important requirements in a GPS tracking system is to

produce a automatically emailed   TIME SHEET report  to  control productivity and labour costs.

Keep in mind :

  • If you get the employee to punch a clock it is within employee control to punch in early and punch out late
  • If you get the employee or supervisor to produce a hand written recorded time sheet it is within employee control to record an early arrival and to record a late exit
  • The automatically emailed time sheet report is beyond employee control:
  • 10 minutes early and 10 minutes late = 20 mins/day
  • 20 mins/day x 21 work days/month = 7 hrs/month
  • 7 hrs/month x $ = $105. month

Use the automatically emailed time sheet report to:

  • Verify employee productivity:
    • Are they being efficient in the deliveries or service calls that they are making?
    • Where did they go?
    • When did they arrive?
    • When did they leave?
  • Verify employee pay:
    • ie. it becomes an automatic employee punch clock
  • Verify customer service levels
