Our Industry Experts
The first step is to gather requirements to develop a statement of work that CompassCom and the customer agree upon.
Our wide range of experience working with many different companies in the last 23 years make us an industry expert in GPS Fleet Tracking System implementation and installation.
The CompassCom implementation team provides a professional service. Our GPS fleet tracking system implementation and installation organization is one of the best in the industry. We understand that no business is the same, and different logistical issues arise with each implementation.
Installation That Tailored to Your Unique Business
CompassCom recognize that fleet tracking rollout vary based on location of installation, complexity of installation, variation of vehicle, number of devices and time-of-day expectations for the installation. It is common for installations to occur after hours or over the weekend to ensure no disruption of your business. CompassCom takes a staggered approach and installs on vehicles and assets that aren’t currently being used.
When we have completed the pilot phase, it’s time for the actual installation. The installation phase is the point where we create the rollout schedule and gather any additional data needed. We provide the appropriate devices and ship the product to the installation sites. Our certified installers, with a wealth of experience install the equipment and the software to ensure the devices are reporting back to your GPS fleet tracking system and all the assets are tracking correctly.
Implementations are not a one-time deal. New employees come on board who need to be trained, http://compasscom.com/services/gps-tracking-fleet-management-training/
devices need to be replaced and ongoing customer support needs to be maintained. That is why we see ourselves as your business partner.
Successful Implementation and Installation Procedure
Our wide range of experience working with many different companies taught us that GPS Fleet Tracking System Implementation and Installation, will be successful by following the 7 basic steps:
Do you Know What Kind of Information You Want to Track?
Our hardware and software system can provide endless amounts of data, which can be a drawback if you don’t know what information you want. It’s important to know your goals, whether it’s fuel savings or safety, so you don’t purchase a system giving you reports you won’t use.
Check out which program matches your company’s needs and is the most cost-effective for your budget. Trying to rework your fleet to fit the system you purchased is much harder than finding a system that most closely fits your needs.
Poor program selection occurs when a company does not really understand what it is trying to accomplish. This is made worse when the company does not really understand what a fleet management system can do.
Helping employees embrace the change
Employees can feel uneasy about GPS Fleet Tracking System. The systems are designed to help your employees and to make the roads safer by making them more diligent drivers. Basic education and approaching this culture change with transparency will result in more buy-in.
Do you have the sufficient financial budget?
Investing in Implementation of GPS Fleet Tracking System can be expensive and does need some time investment in first learning the system. Define your goals, set expectations, and research how the software will help you. Don’t invest until you plan a time and financial budget to make it happen.
Pilot testing your system
Testing your system is a great way to make sure that it’s working within your fleet and that your employees are learning how to properly use the software. A pilot test will make sure everything is running smoothly.
Strategic Location Implementation
If your company is in several locations, consider implementing the system location-by-location rather than having one or two vehicles at each facility. That way, you’ll have every vehicle in the vicinity properly equipped and you’ll be able to gauge your data against those locations without the system.
