Why Are Geofences The Star Feature of Fleet Management Software

 

 


You’ve got a GPS tracking systemin place that lets you keep tabs on your vehicles. But do you have the time to supervise data at all times? So, how do you know if specific vehicles have entered certain areas? The answer to this issue is geofencing! 


The name ‘geofence’ is self-explanatory in terms of the feature’s function. However, its utility remains unclear. Therefore, in this article, we’ll explain why geofences are the star feature of fleet management systems


Putting Geofences to Use

On paper, geofences sound simple – mark an area and you’ll get alerts when vehicles move in and out of it. But little do people realize that this seemingly simple feature has too many use cases across multiple platforms. 


  • Route Deviation: Suppose you’ve mapped a low-risk route perfect in terms of time and fuel efficiency. You can mark that route in a geofence so that if a driver deviates from the route, you can immediately get an alert.

  • Proof of Delivery: No need to get delivery confirmation from drivers or clients. If your vehicle has entered the delivery area and left after a stipulated time period, you automatically get proof of delivery.

  • Driver Monitoring: Do you see a driver constantly stopping at certain locations for specific time periods? They might be using your vehicle for personal use. Use geofences to generate a report of their movement in specific areas to regulate discipline.

  • Regular Updates: Set geofences at multiple places along a vehicle’s route. This way, you will know where your vehicles are instead of having to regularly check on the software.
