Real-time driver tracking for fleet operations

Many affected Malaysian businesses are pressured with high operational costs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. A tracking solution is a good method to keep the costs low and reduce distribution risks hence why it is important to conduct driver tracking as a way to monitor fleet movement.
Driver tracking solutions:

  • Employers are able to manage their drivers from a single platform.
  • Employees are responsible to monitor their own activities.


The most common challenge for many fleet managers is to keep an employee or the assigned driver of each vehicle accountable for their working hours and driving activities by:

  • Recording duration of driving hours and time log.
  • Tracking driving activity.
  • Analysing data to improve operational efficiency.

These actions require the use of hardcopy timesheets, time logs, clocking in/out machines and old-fashioned filing. The adverse effects of the methods are:

  • Delayed tasks caused by employees’ forgetfulness.
  • Unreadable handwriting causes writing errors.
  • Data inaccuracies.
  • Dishonest recordings by employees.

This traditional approach is time-consuming, error-prone, and costly. It sets businesses back from being able to explore better opportunities that could help with company growth and maximize profit.
Businesses are able to gain 360° visibility on their drivers’ actions and working hours with KATSANA® Driver Identification System.
