Apparently that’s exactly what GPS can do for companies that need to manage and monitor their fleet assets according to recent findings. According to George Karonis, CEO of liveviewGPS.com, news reports from over the last few years that stated:
- The city government of Islip, New York saved nearly 14,000 gallons of gas over a three-month period from the previous year after GPS devices were installed in the city’s 614 fleet vehicles. At current gas prices, that amounts to a savings of $38,500 for that quarter. Annual savings would amount to $154,000.In the city of Denver, Colorado, 76 government vehicles equipped with GPS systems were driven 5,000 fewer miles than the unequipped fleet had during the same period the previous year. Denver plans to outfit police cars, snowplows and trash trucks with GPS soon.
- School officials in Boston use GPS systems to track school buses, enabling them to advise worried parents when a bus is running late.
