One of the most discussed benefits of fleet vehicles is tracking. This is an obvious benefit for those who own fleets of rental boats and other vehicles. Like land vehicles, watercraft need tracking, and the right system could make it a lot easier for anyone to save money.
Here are some perks to putting trackers in your boats:
Knowing real-time locations
When the boats are on the water, there is no way to figure out where exactly they are—and the ocean is a vast place to get lost in. However, with GPS tracking, there is a real-time update of your boat’s location, even when in water. This can help save money by allowing you to utilize your assets. It also helps improve customer service, as it can help provide for a more accurate wait-time estimate. No matter how far the boat is, as long as it is in an area with 2G signal, you can keep track of it.
Knowing your boat’s location can also help reduce fuel costs by helping you direct your units efficiently to port.
Reduced risks for theft
Rental boats, especially luxury units, are at high risk of theft. GPS fleet tracking can help ensure that the boat will not be stolen—or at least better chances at recovery. When you know where your boats are at all times, you have more chances of recovering them. The reduced risk can translate into better insurance costs, which, in the long run, can save you money.
Like any other vehicle, boats too need proper maintenance. This reduces wear and tear and can increase the boat’s lifespan quite significantly, thus lowering overall costs by cutting down replacements. Fleet tracking not only keeps track of your boat’s location but can also alert you for possible maintenance needs so you don’t forget to take your boat to its routine maintenance checks.
GPS tracking is beneficial for fleets of all types, as well as any other mobile asset, may it be cars or boats. For those who own rental fleets, for instance, could keep tabs on their boats and their locations, which is essential in maintaining fleet efficiency and cost-effectiveness, making for a better overall customer satisfaction.
