Vehicle tracking systems have been around for many years, and the technology
has advanced significantly in that time. It is now much easier for business
owners to deploy a vehicle tracking system, such as Verizon Connect’s
fleet tracking software.
Key requirements for vehicle tracking:
A vehicle (car or truck) with an OBD-II slot
A vehicle tracking device (to plug in to the OBD-II slot)*
A SIM card with a data plan (available from Verizon Wireless). The SIM card
is inserted into the vehicle tracking device so it can transmit data.
A vehicle tracking system (to receive the data)
*Some vehicles are equipped with factory-fitted vehicle tracking devices.

What are the potential benefits of vehicle tracking?
Using a vehicle tracking system can help improve business productivity,
profitability, safety and security, making it a popular choice for fleets
of all sizes.
With vehicle tracking, businesses have commonly experienced:
Reduced unauthorised vehicle use and fuel costs
Better managed payroll expenses
Easily organised, managed and optimised route stops (jobs, deliveries, etc.)
Greater visibility to back-office dispatchers
Improved vehicle security (or recovery of stolen vehicles)
Automated reporting of mileage, engine hours, driving hours (ELD) or time at a job site
Because a vehicle tracking system offers more than just basic GPS location data,
the full benefits may vary depending on the requirements of your business.
