What Are My Drivers Really Doing? How GPS Tracking Solves That Riddle

Did you know that GPS tracking can help your business? Most employees actually only spend half their time on the clock working. In 2014, the market research firm Harris Interactive surveyed 2,000 office employees and asked them about their work habits. They found that the average employee only spends 45% of their time at work actually working.

Luckily, there’s something you can do about this. Knowing where your drivers are at all times provides many business benefits.
