Fleet management tracker are the vehicle tracking devices that are used by almost all the company in the fleet business to know the whereabouts of their vehicle and insure their security.
There are many companies in the market that provide tracking technologies for the fleet. Though the tracking technology that is most famous and is widely used is GPS (Global Positioning System), apart form this GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is also gaining popularity very quickly. Both of these tracking technologies use the radio signals that are received by the tracking receiver already installed in the vehicles. They also receive the signal from the nearby towers to clarify the surrounding area and then display the same to the driver and manger. Driver gets the idea of where he is and where he has to go and manager gets the information of the position of the fleet and where it is headed.
From driver?s point of view this critical information helps him to decide the most efficient route to his destination, avoid the traffic and as far as manager is concerned he gets the complete information of the fleet thus insuring that they are not on wrong path and are not being used for any other purpose.
Trackers that are used can provide a helping hand in the management of the fleet. It includes maintenance of vehicle, which is very crucial as the entire fleet business totally depends on the there being in the good condition at all time.

Trackers also sends an alert if the vehicle requires a servicing this helps the manager to know the right time of the servicing of the vehicle and increases the life of the vehicle.
