Why bespoke vehicle tracking is different
by Fiona Taylor
Bespoke vehicle tracking – is it important?
Off the shelf tracking may not be the best fit for making your business more efficient. You should try a bespoke vehicle tracking system, built with you in mind.
While you have been out looking for partners and software that will help to maximise your fleet and make your business more efficient you have probably seen a number of vehicle tracking companies. It may be that you have seen some systems and think that all vehicle tracking companies are the same.
Jenny Thompson, the MD at Satmo said “any vehicle tracking system will be a benefit to your business.”
Here are Jenny’s tips for what you should get from a truly bespoke vehicle tracking system.
Are all the vehicle tracking features standard items on the tracking site? Can the features be personal to you and your business needs? Do they offering you true bespoke vehicle tracking system?
First of all you should make sure that the features that you will actually use will from part of your tracking site. Consequently the fancy all singing all dancing features, that look good, but you will never need, are not part of your payment plan.
You might see a price on a site, but this could be a basic start price. You need to ensure that your price is competitive and includes the features that you want. Also it is worth checking whether the price you have been quoted includes installation, or warranty, or if you have to pay extra for support through your contract.
Is the system that you are looking at built by software developers here? Are they available for you to talk to? Can amendments be made so that your reports are as you need them to be to make your business more efficient? A truly bespoke system as a result has the data displayed exactly how you need it. If you are not sure then speak to the team who will be happy to work out what you will need.
What else should you look for in a bespoke vehicle tracking system?
Make sure that you are fully aware of the contract length and terms and conditions before you sign anything. Some companies will tie you into a product or payment plan when actually something else would be more beneficial to you. Furthermore good companies will allow you a free trial of their product.

Back office support
Is there a team of people who can support you after the sale has been completed? Are they willing to help you with ongoing training and one off questions? It is important to make sure that the system and provider you use are dedicated to helping you through the term of the contract rather than just to make the sale. Finally, ask about other customers experiences – do the company you are looking at have any testimonials you can look at?
