4. Customizable reporting
The volume of data that many systems offer would be meaningless without a proper sorting and reporting function. Customizable reports allow businesses to analyze several metrics such as mileage, payments, and vehicle locations over a specific time frame.
5. Data privacy and encryption policy
There are Federal Privacy laws that licensed GPS providers must follow when collecting your data. Dealers should ensure that their provider is housing data on secure servers in a controlled environment, and that when data is transmitted to their websites it is encrypted. Some questions that you should ask your provider before deciding on a solution include: “What data do you collect and store and what do you use it for?” and “Is my data secure and held in privacy for both my business and customers?”
6. Infrastructure and data centers
The back end of the providers IT network, its “infrastructure,” is a vital element for dealers to consider. The best providers usually outsource their infrastructure needs to top-tier data centers that specialize in reliability and security. When a provider claims that they do everything “in-house,” be aware that they’re then the ones responsible for keeping your systems online. And make sure they are servicing you 24/7.
Regardless of the current size or success of your business, choosing the right GPS tracking solution could be the only thing standing in the way of long term profitability.
