GPS Fleet Tracking can be integrated to many delivery and local services businesses for improved operational efficiency.   The workflow will depend on the precise business, but here is an example for a delivery business that sends out products to customer’s homes.

  1. Order is received from the customer.
  2. Dispatch looks up delivery location and based on current fleet location and job order backlog can decide most efficient driver to task with the delivery.  
  3. Dispatch provide job order to the driver with the delivery order details.
  4. Dispatch schedules the delivery
  5. At the appropriate time, the driver picks up the relevant items needed in inventory and drives to the customer location
  6. During the drive, the fleet manager can see the status, real time, as the driver goes to the customer location.
  7. Driver delivers the product and/or service onsite.
  8. The customer can acknowledge or make payment, if not pre-paid.
  9. The Driver then heads to the next assignment. (Quicker than a return to HQ or phoning in for next assignment).
  10. The fleet manager can see the status of the driver on the multiple job orders.
  11. As the end of the shift, then driver can return to HQ, or, the driver can go directly home, and the fleet manager can see the time the last  delivery that was completed.   The visual routing and reports become a de-facto time card.
