Yes, But When Can I Switch Off From Work?

from the 24-hour-lifestyle dept

Welcome to the modern “always on, always connected” work world. It’s gotten to the point where Microsoft discovered, after handing out smart phones, tablet PCs and broadband connections to employees that they needed to give their employees special instructions on how to turn off work. This isn’t a new problem, and it’s certainly been discussed before. While some people can handle the work/life balance without a problem – it’s not so easy for everyone else. Even for those who can switch off, it’s made more difficult by their colleagues who can’t – and who contact them at odd hours with work requests. This is going to become a bigger issue for modern companies to deal with. There are, obviously, some advantages, but people need to learn their limits.

vehicle tracking

vehicle tracking is the art of the spy. As Sun Tzu wrote the words, “all generals must use spies, for to know one’s enemy is to know but one more way to defeat him,” it had probably never crossed the military genius’ mind that 2500 years later, his teachings would be applied to satellite vehicle tracking solutions. Fleet management in the uk would be one of the first to be hit by the new trends in tracking technology, and fleet managers would face its omnipresent shadowy presence as the new wave in asset tracking would rise to unrestricted heights. But who would stand in the face of this new danger? The GPS satellite tracking features of the CarBug? would be one, but alas, there would be many more. Yet alone did the CarBug? stand tall in this vehicle security nightmare. But stand it did. And car tracking around the globe would feel the pride of this little unit, and reap the rewards of 24/7 live tracking. Even the mighty evils could not resist the allure of the CarBug?, and the industry that made up vehicle tracking, car tracking and gps satellite tracking was born.

Vehicle security, in the form of gps car tracking, had emerged. A powerful weight in the car security stakes, a superior need in the fleet managers armoury. Its inherent ability grants fleet management and vehicle tracking interested parties the function of live 24/7 tracking via gps satellite – a powerful weapon in the covert tracking and security war. No longer will vehicles get lost, no longer will children go missing, no longer will cheating partners feel safe driving the family car and no longer will employees be able to pull the wool over their fleet managers’ eyes. No, now is the time when car tracking and security must take responsibility itself for the industry it created, and now is the time when gps vehicle tracking will dawn unto the new age of car security. Let the security war commence!
