The operational improvements enabled by fleet solutions are more important than location data when it comes to ROI.
Fleet management solutions used to be all about location, location, location. But today’s solutions can provide benefits beyond simple location data.

“Insight into what is happening in the field in real time enables field managers to optimize productivity and deliver higher levels of service,” says Joyce Tam, director of product marketing at Trimble. “Organizations now have the ability to control end-to-end processes including arrival times, distances traveled, stops made, and overtime usage, thus increasing the number of tasks completed each day.”
