The challenges faced by the first response community in today’s environment of increasing drug use, of having to protect more homes and families with fewer dollars and shrinking workforce can be daunting. Thankfully, real-time remote monitoring solutions offer visibility into what’s going on when you’re not there. When managing a mobile workforce and remote assets, you need a tool, which allows you to keep tabs on all assets and personal in real time, without making a significant impact on the bottom line.
When you’re running a sheriff’s office, police station or first responders dispatch center, tracking assets, people, and places can quickly become an overwhelming task. Operating that new patrol car becomes a significant expense for any law enforcement agency, especially with the threat of rising fuel prices and expensive parts. Remote asset management with real-time information is the solution that lets you collect current information about your cars, ambulances, fire trucks, and virtually anything else used in emergency services – engine and oil temperature, flow rates, RPM, mileage, location – all increasing visibility, transparency, and control for a smoother operation. All this while you remain at home, or even on vacation in Mumbai.
There are many benefits of real-time awareness, but these advantages all lead to one important factor: actionable data. Giving you the power at your fingertips to act lightning fast, and knowledgeable, as issues arise and decisions demand to be made. These gains don’t just come to law enforcement and emergency responders. They bring improvements to all county services. Perks like:
- Visual knowledge of fleet location.
- Streamlined daily actions are requiring fewer resources.
- A collection of data from any and all locations for analysis.
- Better centralized operations.
- More transparency from all county services maintaining safety and efficiency.
- Know exact locations of all assets for theft-prevention, security, and visibility.
As the Internet of Things (IoT) evolves, technology is no longer just creating a solution with a singular task. Go ask Alexa to find out for yourself, and then come back. The technology is unfolding into modifying the end user’s behaviors and watching over activities to influence those actions. Smart solutions, like the one’s found in GPS tracking and fleet management, has grown from simply tracking the locations of vehicles out in the field.
Today’s solutions, whether for the government, business, and first responders, is also keeping watch for activities and behaviors that can put drivers, departments, enterprises and their reputations at risk. Think of these solutions as driver monitoring systems promoting safe driving, inter-departmental transparency, and a way to introduce a new level of value-added services to customers, protections for employees, and benefits to you.
The goal is clear when it comes to keeping companies secure and profitable through creating a safer environment for driver’s, deputies, or emergency medical personnel and GPS tracking solutions are the easiest and most efficient way to attain that goal. Composed of high-tech CalAmp fleet tracking devices, hardwired into vehicle systems and a dynamic dashboard for careful centralized team management. GPS devices, like industry-leading CalAmp devices, progressively collect raw data of all your vehicles, like, as mentioned earlier, driving behaviors like hard braking, rapid acceleration, and speeding, and then relay the information to your office or department.
The minute-by-minute location, performance, and maintenance data on each vehicle, and it’s driver, is a comprehensive and inclusive solution that is one large part of the IoT, bringing weekly driver activity, identifying risk behaviors and improving overall satisfaction amongst staff.
It’s easy. When you know what’s happening in the field, you can ensure everyone is focused on safety and your team can find new avenues to optimize routes and schedules and streamline operations.
