Vehicle recovery can be a stressful and frustrating process for auto dealers, especially if their GPS trackers aren’t providing accurate and real-time location data.
Choosing a powerful telematics software system and having GPS devices installed in all of your vehicles allows you to dramatically speed up the recovery process – saving you time and money. Be warned that not all GPS vehicle tracking solutions are created equal.
Not All GPS Devices Will Make the Cut
Different GPS devices operate on different signals and networks such as radio frequencies. The data transmitted on that signal can take a long time to reach your tracking software. With GPS trackers that run on unreliable signals and connections, the recovery process will have you working around the clock to find the vehicle based on deduction and guesswork.
If you need guaranteed coverage and up-time, choose a GPS tracking solution with features that fit your business needs. For auto dealers, that means having accurate vehicle locates in case it becomes necessary to recover it. Spireon GoldStar GPS has a locator feature that tells you the vehicle’s typical location on specific days of the week or even on the hour.
Easier and Cheaper Vehicle Recovery Options
When you have a reliable GPS tracking system in place, recovery companies will be more willing to give you favorable rates since they know that they won’t have to spend lots of time trying to locate your car. You could also have the option to:
- Schedule recovery appointment times that work best for the recovery agent
- Identify a convenient and discrete location for recovery (for example, recovering the buyer’s vehicle at their home rather than at their workplace)
- Reduce failed or multiple recovery attempts
- Be notified when common vehicle patterns change
