Installing GPS by providers that provide vehicle monitoring and management service is one of the biggest decisions to improve fleet management. To do this, before contracting with a GPS service provider, you should ask some important questions.
Who will install the GPS device?
In general, if a GPS provider is contracted, we must check if the technicians who carry out the installation have the necessary experience in the type of vehicles involved. It is also necessary that they convey our confidence in the technical team’s certifications.
The companies have their installation and maintenance teams that you can focus on installing the device occasionally; they have the resources and installation requirements.
How to make sure that the GPS installation goes well?
Many installation processes can cause problems during installation. These even start before the technician arrives at the location. The best guarantee of quality service is an experienced installation team; there are many variables in the configuration of any GPS device.
Experienced vendors have teams that can handle challenges ranging from complex wiring issues to help customers decide the most suitable locations inside vehicles to secure GPS equipment.
How are GPS installation providers selected?
It would help if you avoided those providers that try to contact installers without analyzing your requirements. It would help if you always trusted those providers who carefully searched for installers, guaranteeing the quality of service. It is necessary to ask the suppliers for the selection of installation technicians; the process can be:
Ask about the experience of the installers
They require a specific standard installation procedure.
Ensure suppliers and their teams have extensive knowledge of the electrical systems of 12 and 24-volt vehicles and equipment.
What do you do to monitor customer satisfaction?
System installation is only one step to a successful relationship, as it depends on whether the system works after installation; however, most companies seek to improve their process and service through a smooth installation procedure supporting GPS devices.
What is the level of involvement of a provider?
If providers conduct post-installation surveys, they are an excellent initiative to improve customer relationships. Since the information is gathered for improvements and corrections of the service, it is vital to communicate with the technicians who carry out the installation so they can have information about the direct relationship with the client.
How to solve unexpected problems?
If the provider and technicians carry out their installation process well with the requirements, there should be no problems. But, in case a problem arises, how to respond to them?
It is important that by the time the installation technicians arrive at the work site, the vehicles involved must be there to avoid delays. Something additional is that the GPS Car Tracker providers communicate both with the client and the installation technicians so that both parties are clear about the exact date and place and avoid setbacks.
Choose the GPS providers with the lowest costs.
Most companies emphasize low costs when choosing a provider. However, what must be evaluated is an installation with trained technicians to obtain a successful installation with excellent quality. The goal is for both parties to make the contract to be satisfied.
Payment should be fine if it ensures the installation is quality and works correctly. It is best to discuss quality control measures with the supplier.
To achieve good results when installing the GPS for your fleets, we must follow the steps mentioned before, during, and after the installation. If discussions are generated around the installation, you could get faulty results.
