Justifying The Cost Of Telematics

Source: GPS Insight

For commercial fleets, telematics is becoming a well-accepted, go-to solution to improve efficiency and safety. For many public fleets, however, adding telematics may be an uphill climb — seen as an unnecessary budgetary expense with little payoff.

In fact, telematics is worth the expense with benefits for public fleets that include:

  • Lower fuel costs

  • Improved driver and public safety

  • Reduced emissions and carbon footprint

  • Increased efficiency by proving job completion

  • Exoneration of false claims against drivers

While most providers can supply hard data about how well their solution has worked for their clients, it may take more than a report about another city or county’s fleet to convince a wary board of supervisors and taxpayers on the lookout for government waste that the expense is worth it.

Fortunately, there is a way to show that a telematics solution is not only worth the expense, but is budget positive — a plus for stakeholders and taxpayers alike.
