With the tremendous savings in company resources, there has never been a better time to go digital with a fleet vehicle tracker. However, many fleet managers worry that the installation process for GPS trackers is complicated and requires taking cars off the road.
Implementing company vehicle trackers doesn’t have to be complicated, but there are some steps to be aware of. Before taking the plunge, find out what you need to know to make installing trackers into company vehicles a smooth transition.
Fuss-Free Fleet Vehicle Tracker Installation
Many fleet managers delay company vehicle tracker installation because they worry that it means taking cars off the road and lost revenue. With Vimcar, you don’t have to worry. Our Fleet Geo product can be installed by you in seconds, so you can keep your fleet moving.

Communication is Key
Implementing company vehicle trackers involves more than simply installation. Don’t forget to communicate with your drivers about the new tracking system so drivers don’t feel as though they are being spied on. Drivers can also install the app so they can view monitor their own vehicle use. Transparency is key to earning driver buy-in and trust.
It’s not just good business practice to inform drivers, but it’s also the law. Information gathered by fleet vehicle trackers is considered personal data and is subject to GDPR data protection legislation.
Also, note that company cars used outside of working hours must have a privacy setting in place. This ensures that the company car tracker is only tracking business-related trips.
Company car trackers give managers valuable insight into driver behaviour. Including your drivers in the process increases accountability and prevents vehicle misuse.
Your digital fleet management system should have a knowledgeable, helpful service team so you can install your fleet vehicle trackers fast.
Vimcar’s world-class customer service team has earned a reputation for its comprehensive support. Our in-house experts can answer any product and tracking questions you may have so you can carry on running your business.
