The benefits of installing Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) tracking and In-Vehicle Monitoring Systems (IVMS) are well documented.

Such systems can help improve driver and passenger safety through controlling speed and reducing accidents and incidences of theft. More than that, they facilitate a proactive approach to managing vehicle use and driver behavior as a key element in reducing company CO2 emissions.

A comprehensive IVMS fleet management solution has been used by SGS in the Middle East since 2013, and provides 24/7 real-time tracking with feedback to improve driver behavior and notify management of any violations. This resulted in improved driver safety and a reduction in fuel consumption during 2014. Meanwhile, across our South America region, a GPS system implemented in 2013 warns drivers when they exceed speed limits, and delivers hourly reporting on vehicle location as well as daily event logs with historical data tracking.

Following the successes seen in these regions, IVMS has been rolled-out to the EMEA region. This has contributed to a reduction in our vehicle incidents rates of 11% in 2015.
