Are you a trades person? Have you got company vehicles with your business contact details on? Have you ever thought that tracking the trades was not really worth it or;

“With our small budget, we can’t afford GPS tracking”
Well I’m here to tell you to think again. First of all, businesses of all sizes can benefit from vehicle tracking. And secondly, when you look at all the costs telematics will help you cut, you can’t afford NOT to implement it? Tracking the trades is an important job.
Which trades can tracking help?
