The ability to manage a fleet with vehicle tracking systems is increasingly being utilized in businesses today in Kenya. Technology has proven to be a great advantage to many of these businesses and is helping them improve fleet productivity.
Managing a fleet is a challenge, to say the least, but the incorporation of the latest technology can make the entire process simple and very efficient. The tracking combines the use of automatic vehicle location in vehicles with a software that collects these fleets data for a comprehensive picture of vehicle locations.
