Geofences

HomeGeofencing

Manage your assets with geofence monitoring

A GPS geofence can help your business strengthen security, asset utilization and productivity. Automated alerts and patented geofence technology within the Verizon Connect fleet tracking system give you near real-time visibility into your entire fleet.

Draw custom, virtual borders around meaningful geographic areas to see job site visits, duration and frequency. Use suggested geofences to help you decide if you want drivers to avoid certain areas.


Strengthen security, and speed up theft recovery

A geofence GPS tracker can help keep tabs on your fleet after business hours. Receive near real-time alerts (straight to the mobile app on your smartphone) when company vehicles or assets are moved outside a virtual fence without authorization. Near real-time GPS vehicle tracking helps you react to problems faster and act quickly to help recover stolen vehicles.

Get more out of your vehicle and asset tracking

With geofencing fleet management, you can quickly see where and how long your vehicles and assets are on a job site. Increase utilization by reallocating resources when necessary. Get quick access to:

  • Location visits and stop details
  • Average time spent at each location
  • Average time spent traveling to and from each location

Keep your crew productive

Having a GPS tracker with geofence can tell you when your crew enters or leaves designated areas, which can help you verify timesheets, reduce unauthorized vehicle use and streamline travel.

Our GPS tracking system can also suggest geofences for frequently accessed locations and analyze the size, shape and activity around a geofence to point out corrections.


Uncover avoidable payroll costs

GPS geofencing can help you confirm overtime costs and reduce unnecessary trips during work hours.

Frequently asked questions

Where can I draw a geofence on a map?

A GPS geofence can be drawn around a job site, business, residence or any physical location on a map. Our software can even recommend corrections if the geofence you draw is missing part of a location.

What are suggested geofences?

Suggested geofences are GPS locations that our software has identified as frequently visited by your vehicles. This gives you insight into everywhere your vehicles go throughout the day, including locations you might not have known are being visited often. With this information from a GPS tracking system, you can identify if drivers are going places they shouldn’t be, like certain job sites, roads, stores, homes or restaurants.
