Imagine if you could ride shotgun with each of your drivers. Would routes get done faster? Would stops take less time? Could you get more done each day? With ClearPath’s GPS vehicle tracking devices and software you’re virtually riding with every driver all the time.
“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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When drivers know they are being tracked their behavior changes; we call that the “halo effect”. Good drivers know they’re valued and problem drivers improve quickly once you install GPS vehicle tracking devices.
Regular maintenance saves you money on costly repairs but also prevents downtime which means loss of revenue. Our GPS vehicle tracking devices also provide maintenance tracking with real-time odometer readings to help you stay on top of maintenance and pull vehicles out for service only when they need it.
What if your business had all the benefits listed above? Would your day be a little easier? Would you feel more in control and relaxed? We asked our clients in a survey how ClearPathGPS made them feel and the two phrases that came up, again and again, were: “in control” and “peace of mind”. Let us show you even more reasons why business owners and managers use ClearPath GPS vehicle tracking devices to track thousands of vehicles every day.

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:
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
