Cars are popular among both small-to-medium-size and large-fleet businesses. Their usage is limitless and can serve to support sales fleets and pool vans often used as pool vehicles to help businesses complete everyday jobs and tasks. Vehicle tracking solutions provide visibility into real-time locations through GPS technology. If safety is a concern, you can use actionable data to monitor driving behaviour and ensure your drivers get the right training and meet compliance guidelines. Additionally, you can track a vehicle’s maintenance cycle and business mileage to automate fuel expense management. This ensures daily jobs are completed on time and without issue, increasing customer satisfaction and efficiency across your fleet.

Cargo Vans or Pickup Trucks

Vehicle tracking solutions can support businesses with these vehicles used for a wide range of jobs––from local delivery and courier services to trade services. With vehicle tracking, you not only know where your vehicles are during and in between appointments, you can dispatch jobs and send the best routes right to your team’s in-vehicle devices. If you need to capture proof of delivery, vehicle tracking systems can help you automate these processes. Vehicle tracking systems collect actionable data you can use to track driver behaviour, including unauthorised use and bad driving habits to help coach your not-so-good drivers into the ultimate service team.

Heavy Vehicles & Transport

When it comes to these types of assets, vehicle tracking goes above and beyond, providing you with real-time locations, compliance, and safety all in one application. This is specially helpful for monitoring long-haul or heavy-product deliveries across multiple regions. Additionally, vehicle tracking systems offer you the ability to monitor driving behaviour through analytics through a back-office system that features for a quick overview of events as they happen in real time. Other features include routing capabilities from the office right to a driver’s in-vehicle device, easy two-way communication between drivers and managers, vehicles inspection reporting, and electronic work diary to meet chain of responsibility (CoR) regulations and more.


The business of transporting people is not easy, especially when you have the lives of many others on your hands at any given time. Vehicle tracking systems enable you keep a close eye on bus travel points in real-time, including arrival and departure times, engine on/off events, idle times, and fuel consumption for any one vehicle - even specialty items such as seat-belt on and off warnings. In case of emergencies, real-time digital maps let you find your fleet and zoom in to locations to send help or guide your fleet to a safe location. For local or interstate travel, vehicle tracking provides driver management features, such as driver behaviour reporting and compliance through electronic driver logs that are submitted from an in-vehicle device, helping you track scheduling and plan accordingly without overworking your team and compromising safety.

Heavy Equipment

Heavy-duty assets are some of the most stolen items for businesses ranging from farming to construction. Whether you own your equipment or safeguard it within your fleet, vehicle tracking informs you when your assets are safe or when they’re being used inappropriately. With vehicle tracking software, increase job-site productivity by knowing whether equipment is being fully utilised or underused, and monitor any unauthorised usage no matter the location. Additionally, you can use vehicle tracking to increase the lifespan of your fleet through maintenance scheduling and digital pre-use inspection processes.
