There are a lot of benefits of van tracking for companies and more than anything else it enables them to potentially reduce cost on fuel and determine other loopholes in the driving behaviour of their fleet of vehicles. Just as the choice of right kind of vehicle tracking system depends upon the fleet management needs of a business, in the similar manner the cost of the system is also dependent on a series of factors.
There is a wide range of vehicle tracking devices employing active or passive tracking, even few modern devices combines the features of both. A single tracking device installed on the vehicle serves multiple purposes such as routing, on-board information, dispatching and security for the fleet operators.
Let’s have a glimpse on the factors on which the selection of vehicle tracking system relies
Services and type of tracking system that you require for getting valuable insights for your business
The brand or provider you choose
The choice of buying or leasing the service
Number of vehicles that you want to be tracked
As we already discussed there are two major types of vehicle tracking systems- active and passive. Where active system is more sophisticated and technologically advanced as it gets real time data about the whereabouts of a vehicle, on the other hand passive system collects data to be evaluated after plugging out from the vehicle. Thus the cost you pay for vehicle tracking system would be greatly influenced by the type of system you are choosing to get the insights. The more sophisticated and complicated technology you use the more you have to pay; it’s as simple as that.
