GPS Tracking for Construction Companies: Worth the Money?

GPS Tracking for Construction Companies: Worth the Money?

GPS tracking for construction companies: Many companies question whether it’s a good value.

But many have found that having safer drivers helps reduce their insurance rates. And knowing when their vehicles and equipment enter and leave job sites helps with billing and routing.

Others have found that they’re bringing more to the bottom line from other savings as a result of using GPS tracking. Here are some examples of how construction companies are improving profitability with GPS tracking:
