Let's face it: Microsoft is embedded in our lives. Most of us perform our jobs daily with Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. And, although we depend on these applications, most of us probably use only 20% of their features. The same can be said for GPS
fleet-tracking solutions. But, that's not always a bad thing.
Deploying new technology can be intimidating. Like any
application, if you start by using a few features, you eventually graduate to more advanced functionality until it's
part of your everyday routine.
Gone are the days of costly installations and high-priced
consultants configuring solutions that take months or
longer to see ROI. Today, hardware devices are smaller,
cheaper, and plug-and-play ready. Users have the luxury
of self-installing a device the size of a deck of cards, logging in to a Web application, and seeing results within hours.
