BlackOwl GPS provides all clients with 1 year of detailed tracking history which also includes an automated reporting system.
Storing historical GPS tracking data from a vehicle can have numerous benefits for both individuals and businesses. Here are just a few of the key advantages:
Improved safety: By analysing historical GPS tracking data, it is possible to identify patterns in a vehicle's movements and identify any potential safety risks. For example, if a vehicle consistently takes a particularly hazardous route, this information can be used to suggest a safer alternative. Additionally, historical data can be used to track the speed at which a vehicle is traveling and ensure that it is operating within legal limits.
Enhanced efficiency: GPS tracking data can help businesses optimise their fleet operations by identifying bottlenecks and inefficiencies in routing and scheduling. For example, if a particular route is consistently congested at a particular time of day, the data can be used to schedule deliveries for a different time. Additionally, tracking data can be used to identify when a vehicle is idling for extended periods of time, which can be a sign of inefficient use of resources.
Improved customer service: GPS tracking data can be used to provide real-time updates to customers on the status of their delivery or service. This can be particularly useful for businesses that rely on timely delivery, such as courier companies or food delivery services. By providing accurate ETA information to customers, businesses can improve their reputation for reliability and customer satisfaction. BlackOwl can provide API information to clients in order to integrate GPS tracking information into their preferred software.
Enhanced security: Storing historical GPS tracking data can be useful in the event of a security breach or theft. For example, if a vehicle is stolen, the tracking data can be used to identify the location of the vehicle and potentially recover it, as well as the route taken. This may provide authorities with CCTV footage to identify the perpetrators. Additionally, tracking data can be used to monitor the movements of a vehicle and ensure that it is not being used for unauthorised purposes.
Enhanced compliance: Many businesses are required to maintain records of their vehicle movements for compliance purposes. For example, trucking companies may be required to maintain records of their routes and rest periods to ensure compliance with federal regulations. By storing historical GPS tracking data, businesses can easily access the information they need to demonstrate compliance with these regulations.
Storing historical GPS tracking data from a vehicle can have numerous benefits, including improved safety, enhanced efficiency, improved customer service, enhanced security, and enhanced compliance. By utilising this data, businesses and individuals can make informed decisions and optimise the use of their vehicles.
