Frequently Asked Questions
Because FleetBoss develops tailored systems and solutions for each business that we help, it simply is not practical to show the dozens of systems and hundreds of potential configurations on the website. We feel that the best way to make your buying experience a positive and productive one is to give us a call and let us build the system that is right for you.
Yes we do! FleetBoss offers a wide selection of real time fleet technology solutions beginning with your choice of solution levels: Essential, Enhanced and Integrated. These choices gives business owners and managers flexibility to implement a customized program.
Definitely not! Because of our partnerships with the industry’s leading manufacturers (OEMs) and technology partners, FleetBoss is able to configure a system that is tailored specifically to your goals and business requirements. There are hundreds of possibilities, and every solution is set up to meet your needs.
Not at all! FleetBoss helps companies with as few as one or two vehicles, and companies with thousands of vehicles. No matter how big or small, your fleet will get the FleetBoss personalized service and access to best practices learned from over 20 years helping businesses like yours.
In simplest terms, you are able to keep tabs on your vehicles and drivers using navigation satellite technology. A device in the vehicle uses GPS signals to determine location and speed, and with optional on-board diagnostics, events, alerts and custom integrations you can check on the “health”, “custom data” and “safety” of the vehicle – the behavior of your driver as well. Basic vehicle data including speed, location, start and stop times and idling are reported back to you, and stored in a database for automated and simplified reporting. Custom data can be stored or streamed in real time.
Yes, FleetBoss will help you save money! And the system pays for itself! You can realize immediate savings by cutting down on fuel use and reducing overtime. Within the first 30 days, you will have the data and insights you need to improve routing and dispatching, increase workforce productivity and optimize the use of your vehicles. You will also be able to address risk factors that improve employee safety, reduce liability and potentially qualify for discounted premiums on your insurance.

The technology behind these systems is essentially the same, and FleetBoss even provides GPS fleet management systems that integrate with commercial in-vehicle navigation as an option to consider for routing and dispatch improvement. The FleetBoss GPS fleet management solution is a business tool, which combines vehicle unit hardware for your fleet and an online technology information platform for managing the rich data from your office. If you are also considering in-vehicle navigation or require routing or dispatch information, please discuss with us first so we can get you set up with a compatible system.
No way! If you have a working knowledge of online tools (such as mapping) and are familiar with typical office spreadsheet and reporting tools, you will be able to use the FleetBoss system with some initial training and support in the implementation and set up from our trained technical staff. And you will always have personal service and support from us as long as you are using the services and monitoring your vehicles through FleetBoss.
Absolutely! FleetBoss and our technology partners use state-of-the-art maps that are continually updated and able to keep track of activity where ever your vehicles operate. If you have vehicles operating in multiple counties or even states, FleetBoss provides mapping from the 50,000 foot level all the way down to the street level. Special mapping options including ESRI are also available.
The technical answer is that GPS “fixes” are accurate to within 16 feet (5 meters) based on the triangulation of multiple satellite signals, with a minimum of three satellites needed within line of sight to effectively locate the vehicle. Typically, GPS will provide location data that is accurate within one or two car-lengths of the vehicle’s location, and updated frequently as the vehicle moves.
With GPS fleet management systems installed in your vehicles, you will be able to log in to your fleet management “dashboard” and view your vehicles on a map and review historical data such as routes traveled, start and stop points, even customer sites that can be tagged in your system. You can set up “geofences” to establish zones where vehicles should or should not be, and set up rules for days and times when your vehicles are supposed to be on the road. Exceptions and violations will be logged in your reporting system, and you can set the system up to alert you (with a text message or email) when a vehicle is operated outside of boundaries or rules.
The first thing to consider is how much money you are spending right now on wasted fuel, unnecessary overtime, excessive maintenance and lost opportunities because you don’t have the tools you need to manage your fleet more effectively. FleetBoss customers report savings and improvements within the first 30 days based on improved productivity, reduced fuel usage, reductions in overtime and other payroll costs, and increased capacity for service calls and billable jobs.
