Fleet tracking is a common problem for companies that rely on company or pool cars.
Employees don't always consent to being tracked wherever they drive outside business hours.
However, it's often beneficial for both employers and drivers to monitor cars when they are used for work tasks. So how do we handle this contradiction?
Fortunately, there's an easy to implement Fleet App solution which makes it possible to track company vehicles while allowing employees the freedom to travel without surveillance when they are not at work: Companies simply need to use the smart privacy features on Vimcar's Fleet App.
The Privacy Mode on our Fleet App offers a solution that has major benefits for employees and employers alike.
How privacy mode should be used.
For instance, when they turn our Fleet App’s Privacy Mode off, drivers of company cars can prove that they have attended meetings or business events. If clients fail to attend, employees can prove that they were not at fault. When they aren't heading to professional engagements, drivers can instantly turn Privacy Mode on, restoring their freedom from surveillance.
Companies can also benefit from implementing our Fleet App’s Privacy Mode. For example, giving employees the option to turn tracking off will help to maintain good working relationships and show trust in staff. And with high trust and satisfaction levels, employees are likely to be more productive.
Privacy Mode also makes it easy to see which drivers are available at a particular moment in time. If you suddenly need to deploy drivers to clients, you can manage tasks smoothly and avoid accidentally contacting employees who aren't currently on call.
There are also benefits for companies which use pool cars instead of individual company vehicles. If drivers take pool cars for personal trips, they can switch off tracking on our Fleet App for short periods, and restore it immediately when they return to work tasks.
Final words on our Fleet App's Privacy Mode.
When used properly, the privacy functions on our Fleet App makes fleet management much easier and more flexible. In the past, managing vehicles has largely been a top-down process. With Privacy Mode, you can empower staff while maintaining awareness and control of what really matters.
Accessing Privacy Mode is simple via our Fleet Geo Fleet App. Activating the feature takes minutes for an entire fleet, and minimal driver training is required. So add more options to your vehicle management and free workers from unnecessary monitoring. With Vimcar you can balance surveillance and freedom for any company fleet.
