What is Geofencing?

 

Geofencing is a location-based service that uses GPS data to trigger an action when something enters or exits a virtual boundary. This virtual boundary is known as a geofence.

Geofences can be generated to match a predefined set of boundaries, making them useful for location-based marketing, security management, and...vehicle tracking. 

While other tracking software monitors a driver's whole journey, a geofence is focused on a specific area more closely.

Geofencing and Fleet Tracking

Keeping track of your company's property is obviously beneficial, and geofencing can help you do this. Setting up virtual boundaries around specific areas means you are able to monitor employees, keep track of company property, and automate time cards; all of which enable your business to improve the way it manages its vehicles. 

Geofencing also can help companies manage mobile workforces, providing a deeper insight into your operations and productivity. This makes planning business processes more straightforward, allowing you to allocate resources more effectively without having to make a single phone call. 

 

Benefits of Geofencing

Geofencing can reduce the stress on managers by making their job more automated. Quite often, managers of vehicle fleets have to constantly watch and refresh their fleet management systems. With geofencing, a lot of the most important things that you monitor are updated automatically.  

Fleet managers can create geofences around areas of their choosing, like loading zones, laybys, job sites, and rest areas. This enables them to automatically receive reports that go through all of their drivers' actions. As a result, fleet managers can focus on other tasks while still remaining in the loop. 

The extra layer of protection afforded by geofencing also means a fleet manager can monitor unauthorised vehicle use more easily. Through instant notifications of unusual vehicle actions,  and the ability to pinpoint a vehicle's travel history, geofencing can make it easier for unauthorised vehicle use to be spotted and dealt with. 

Theft also poses several challenges to businesses like yours and, to address this concern, geofences can often prove invaluable. The virtual boundaries created by geofencing technology provide a solution to this problem; triggering alerts if a vehicle leaves a designated area, allowing you to act fast.

As it stands, many businesses already use GPS in some way or another to track their vehicles. This means for businesses like this, transitioning to geofencing won't require any extra investment. 

Furthermore, there are also several online resources available that guide you through the more technical aspects of geofencing and tracking, so the learning curve won't be as dramatic as perhaps you first thought.
