SageQuest, a Fleetmatics Group PLC (NYSE:FLTX) brand, has released its 2013 Buyer’s Guide for GPS Vehicle Tracking. The guide gives an authoritative overview of the different types of vehicle tracking systems available in the UK market and provides information specific to enterprise fleet operators to help them critically evaluate multiple options and choose the system that most meets their business requirements.
The Buyer’s Guide goes in-depth to thoroughly explain the four key capabilities of GPS tracking solutions (data collection, data transmission, turning data into information, customer presentation) and highlights the pros and cons for both handheld solutions and real-time vehicle-based solutions. The guide also demonstrates how GPS tracking systems are used by other companies to carry out operations such as auditing timecards and billing, real-time dispatch and supervision, eliminating unwanted driver behaviours and driving improvements in efficiency and production.
SageQuest’s Buyer’s Guide, which was first published in 2007, is a useful resource for businesses that are starting their search for a new GPS tracking system. A survey of Buyer’s Guide readers indicated that 86% of respondents felt more comfortable in making a purchasing decision after reading the guide.
SageQuest’s UK Managing Director, Peter Bingham said:
"Choosing a provider for your company’s GPS tracking solution is an important decision – a decision that your business will have to live with for a long time when you consider that the average contract agreement is for three years. That’s why it’s essential to spend the time in ensuring you are opting for the right solution to not only manage your company’s long-term business needs but to also ensure you are given the right level of customer service and support from your chosen supplier.
"The SageQuest Buyer’s Guide makes it simple for enterprise fleet operators to know what to look for in a system and this is important because when it comes to GPS tracking systems, a one-size-fits-all solution doesn’t always have the capabilities required to manage large fleets of more than 50 vehicles".
