Cutting Business Costs With Gps Tracking

While almost every business owner is interested in cutting costs they are likely just as interested in ways to prevent taking on new costs. While it may seem counter intuitive, adding the monthly cost of a GPS tracker can pay for itself and even end up saving the business some money.

A GPS tracking device does a lot more than simply telling owners and fleet managers the location of their vehicles. It can also give important information that can help save on fuel economy and more importantly it can give alerts about necessary routine vehicle maintenance such as oil changes.

Most people rely on their check engine light to come on in order to know they are due for an oil change, or if they were lucky enough the quick lube placed a sticker reminding them of the next service date. Using a GPS tracker can help fleet managers stay on top of these service tasks and not have to rely on drivers relaying engine light messages or paper service records. The tracking device can send an alert when the vehicle is due for maintenance. Another headache fleet managers dont have to worry about is a tire blow out due to improperly inflated tires. This will help prevent accidents that occur at unexpected times and allow owners to schedule the maintenance of their vehicles at convenient times.

Another benefit of GPS tracking devices that can go overlooked is keeping tabs on employees over time hours. Of course every business owner only wants honest and hardworking employees, but unfortunately this is not always the case. A tracker can help managers keep up with the hours their employees are working and if they are really working overtime when they say that they are. If nothing else, knowing that their vehicle has a tracker will keep honest workers honest.

With a GPS fleet tracking system, worker's stats can be seen through the various reports available via the internet portal site. This gives the knowledge needed to make the most effective choices for his or her business. We like the saying 'trust, but check' in regards to the mobile work force of any company.

In addition to the amazing options that come with a GPS tracker system, they will be loved by their company bookkeeping staff. They are going to spend time double, triple, and quadruple assessing their reports that are tailor made. In just several clicks, they'll have use of all of the reports they require to economically and correctly allocate spending.

Mobile Internet Connectivity

Rural areas and very remote locations have very little options for internet connectivity. The lack of necessary

infrastructures to deliver reliable and fast internet makes internet connectivity in such areas difficult.

Establishing these telecommunication infrastructures is not a profitable investment because of the very low

population density. The available option for getting rural communities online is through the use of the

services of satellite internet service providers. Naturally, the speed provided by such setup is not as fast as

a DSL high speed internet provider. This is due to the fact that the data transmitted, both incoming and

outgoing, has to be sent to space to the corresponding satellite that provides the service. Nonetheless, this

is the best and sometimes the only option available for remote areas. And although the speed is not as fast, it

is definitely fast enough to provide a fully functional internet connection. Subscribers can use VoIP (Voice

Over IP) that could be just as efficient as regular phone service, establish VPN (Virtual Private Network) just

as easily as they would with a DSL line.

Addressing the internet connectivity issue of rural areas is just one of the many conveniences provided by
href="">satellite broadband internet providers
. There are a lot of other scenarios

that users prefer to sign up for satellite internet than regular DSL. One of these is if the user travels a

lot. Whether it's domestic or international travel, the reach of regular internet connection is not going to be

available anywhere. Journalists and scientists for example, have to go to places that are in the fringes of

civilization. Rarely will facilities that provide internet connectivity outside of satellite connections be

found in the middle of a savannah, a dense forest or even in the icy landscapes of Siberia or Antarctica.

Travelers have to keep their line open so that friends and colleagues can be updated with their general

location, status and whereabouts.

Judging from different reviews that are posted online, two satellite internet providers are usually seen at the

top of the lists of ranking. One review after the other will usually indicate that both Hughesnet and Exede are

the go-to providers for overall great service. Hughesnet, though previously notorious for their notable gap

between their download and upload speeds (upload being significantly lower), have improved their services and

is now rarely getting any complaints about the former shortcoming. The reason is that they have recently

upgraded to their latest generation named Gen4. The speed can sometimes match low-end DSL subscriptions with a

download speed that can reach up to 10Mbps. They have numerous options for their packages with the most

relevant one being their 'mobile satellite internet' option. There is also another convenient feature that

allows customers to extend their data limit in reasonable increments.

Exede is another satellite internet service provider that delivers reliable mobile internet connectivity. The

aggregate of several reviews found over the internet indicates that Exede is the only provider that literally

exceeds their advertised download and upload speeds. Their packages differ only in data limit, duration of

subscription, to name a few--- but never their internet speed. The 12Mbps download and 3Mbps upload are

implemented across the offered subscriptions. And since it is aforementioned that they exceed their advertised

speeds, here is a comparison of what their reported actual speeds are: 17Mbps and 4.8Mbps. I'm sure no

subscriber would complain about that advertising misinformation.
