  • Real time accountability for each driver
  • Virtual Timecard keeps stop times efficient
  • Review each day’s routes to optimize productivity

Control Unsafe Driving Risks

“Your driver was speeding through our neighborhood”. Ever get a call like that? Ever wonder why one of your trucks need brakes more often than the others? Driver behavior has a big impact on the risk to your business and the wear and tear on your vehicles.

  • Driver Scorecard shows you a ranking of all your drivers’ behavior.
  • Track hard braking and fast starts to get a complete picture.
  • Trend reports help you spot problem drivers before it’s too late.

Reduce Fuel Expense

The Aberdeen Group study found that on average, companies that deploy GPS vehicle tracking devices save 13.4% on their fuel expenses. Fuel savings alone can more than pay for your ClearPathGPS vehicle tracking solution.

  • Speeding alerts and posted speed reports
  • Excessive engine idle alerts and reports
  • Prevent unauthorized use that wastes your fuel
  • Verify fuel card purchases

Eliminate Time Card Padding

A 40 minute stop shows up on the timecard as an hour… happens all the time. GPS vehicle tracking devices account for every stop and movement of the vehicle and can be cross-checked with employee timecards.

  • Virtual Timecard Report automates accountability
  • All trips and unaccounted for stops are recorded
  • GeoZones alert on leaving yards or job sites
  • Reduce overtime expenses

Stop Side Jobs

A driver uses your truck and tools to do a quick side job for cash on the way home. Side jobs are one of the most common complaints from service and delivery based clients. ClearPath’s GPS vehicle tracking devices can end that immediately.

  • Every stop, start and route is accounted for
  • Monitor vehicles after hours or when drivers take them home
  • Street View helps you verify a “lunch break” was not a “side job”
  • Virtual Timecard Report automatically flags all stops

Control Unauthorized Use

Drivers running personal errands, side jobs, even taking a work truck on a camping trip. We’ve heard countless stories that would be funny if they weren’t so costly. Unauthorized use not only wastes your money, it puts your business at unnecessary risk.

  • Automatic alerts for after hours or weekend use
  • Driver ID option verifies who was behind the wheel on every trip
  • Complete route and stop history lets you see any side trips

Improve Customer Service

Respond to customer calls quicker with vehicle tracking by dispatching the closest driver. Update clients with accurate arrival time estimates. Know when traffic is going to impact deliveries. Provide proof of service when customers question an invoice.

  • No more calling around to see who the closest driver is to a new job
  • Proof of service reports resolve client questions quickly
  • Realtime status improves dispatching efficiency
  • Avoid client complaints by staying ahead of possible delays
  • Virtual Time Card keeps billing accurate

Ensure Quick Theft Recovery

If a vehicle ever should get stolen, recovery can be as simple as pulling up your truck tracking app on your mobile phone and telling the police where the vehicle is with a real-time GPS vehicle tracking device. Fast recovery can mean saving valuable tools and equipment too.

Reduce Insurance Premiums

In a recent survey by a HUB International Insurance agent of the five major commercial insurance carriers, discounts for GPS vehicle tracking device deployments ranged from 5% to 25%. Showing a history of managing risk with GPS vehicle tracking devices is a powerful tool to negotiate rates at renewal time too.

  • Manage risk profile by reducing speeding and unauthorized use
  • Documented history of safety enforcement and improvement
  • Use tracking data to fight frivolous claims
  • Quick recovery after a theft with real time tracking

Key Fleet Tracking Definitions

  • What Is Telematics?

    Telematics is the process of gathering data from one source and transmitting it to other sources over a network. One of the most common commercial applications is vehicle telematics, which is comprised of the following:

    • A device installed in each of the business’s vehicles (or other assets, such as trailers and heavy equipment), which uses GPS and other technology to capture and record a wealth of information about these assets.
    • A network to transmit this data to the company for real-time use, as well as to store the data for review later and for documentation and compliance purposes.
    • A centralized online dashboard where company managers and executives can review both real-time and historical information about the company’s fleet.


  • What are OBDII GPS Tracking Devices?

    OBD2 GPS trackers (also written as OBDII), refer to how the gps vehicle tracking devices get installed in your vehicles. Whereas other types of GPS tracking devices are mounted behind the dashboard and are hardwired to ignition, power, and ground, an OBD2 GPS tracker is a plug-and-play device installed directly into a vehicle’s onboard diagnostics port.

    Because OBD2 GPS trackers connect straight into the onboard diagnostics system, you can self-install these devices by plugging them into your vehicles’ OBD2 ports, which can save your fleet downtime and also save money on the cost of professional installation.

    By connecting to the onboard diagnostics port, an OBD2 GPS tracker can provide far more than location and route data. It can also send your company real-time DTC codes, for example, and other updates on your vehicle’s health.

    OBD2 GPS trackers are ideal for pickup trucks, service vans, and any light- to medium-duty vehicle.


  • What is a DTC Code?

    DTC stands for Diagnostic Trouble Code. It represents a type of code your vehicle’s onboard diagnostics (OBD) system uses to alert you to a specific problem with some aspect of the vehicle. If your Check Engine light becomes illuminated, for example, this could signal any of several emissions-related faults your system has detected, such a problem with your fuel system or evaporative emissions controls.

    When a vehicle experiences a malfunction, DTC codes—also referred to as fault codes—help you pinpoint the location of the specific system experiencing the problem.


  • What are Geofences?

    A geofence is a location-based technology that works by drawing a virtual or imaginary border around an actual geographic area. (This area can be any size and any shape.) Using tracking technology (such as GPS), the person monitoring a geofence can receive alerts when specific devices or assets enter or leave the geofence area.

    Because you can create a geofence around literally any physical boundary, you can use this technology to secure your fleet anywhere. You’ll probably want to place geofences, for example, around jobsites, your company’s garage, parking lot, or wherever you store your vehicles and large fixed assets overnight.


  • What is Route Optimization?

    Route optimization is the science of systematically and consistently identifying the fastest and most cost-effective routes for the drivers of a company’s vehicles. Fleet managers can use route optimization to improve customer service, increase the number of jobs per day or week that drivers can handle, reduce vehicle maintenance costs, and reduce the fleet’s overall fuel costs. Fleet managers use route optimization to:

    • analyze historical route data to improve route efficiency;
    • leverage real-time and historical traffic patterns and road-construction updates to plan more efficient routes; and
    • help dispatchers quickly identify the fastest and most direct route to job sites and deliver those route directions directly to drivers.


  • How Fleet Management and Telematics Work Together

    Vehicle telematics is just one piece of the fleet management puzzle. It represents a set of technologies and processes designed to help capture, transmit, and store data that can improve the performance and ROI of a business’s fleet.

    • A vehicle tracking solution’s ability to record and deliver vehicle location data can help a fleet manager more accurately document and report drivers’ time on jobs, for billing and timecard purposes.
    • It can also report on real-time and historical data about driver behavior—average speeds, braking, acceleration, cornering etc.—can give a fleet manager insight into which drivers are mishandling company vehicles. A fleet manager can use this information to incentivize drivers to behave more responsibly.
    • Telematics also has the ability to track and report on engine hours and miles logged for each vehicle can make it easier for a fleet manager to keep track of each vehicle’s regularly needed fleet maintenance schedules, which can help boost the company’s long-term ROI of its vehicles.
