When you think GPS vehicle tracking, “installation” is not likely your first thought. However, as a dealer or lender, installation should be top of mind.Why? Because if you’re not using a Spireon-certified installer or a properly trained technician to install your devices correctly, you’ll be running into a number of problems. All of which increases your risk of loss, and counters the reason why you chose to use GPS for collateral management in the first place.Installations are key to any GPS-based vehicle tracking and collateral management system. Think of it this way – if you purchased a brand-new iPhone 7 but the store technician gave you an Android charger, your iPhone would never charge and eventually you’ll run into the issue of a dead and rather useless phone. No phone calls, no text messages, no internet. And if you didn’t know the Android charger wasn’t meant for the iPhone, you would assume there’s something wrong with the iPhone that you just spent a pretty penny on. All of this then leads to lost time trying to determine the issue, not having what you paid for and a large amount of frustration.GPS devices, when installed incorrectly, will give you a similar story. If a unit is not installed properly, eventually something will malfunction on the device, from reporting to alerts or perhaps a faulty circuit. And if your GPS device isn’t working, you’ll face frustration, dissatisfaction and potentially risk losing a valuable asset.Installation is not always a plug and play method. Rather, you need specially trained technicians who know how to properly place, wire, secure and test the GPS tracking unit.At Spireon, we provide turnkey services for your dealership, with custom options to best suit your needs.
