Going Green with GPS Log Book
With our modern way of living comes many environmental concerns, including pollution, large carbon footprints and rapid reduction of rainforests, just to name a few. The good news is that we can find ways to prevent or slow damage to the environment as well as find alternative methods to make our lives just a little easier.
Did you know: The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50 million homes for 20 years.
GPS Log Book has been used by thousands of South Africans over the last few years as the hassle-free alternative to cumbersome, unreliable manual logbooks and expensive tracking systems. As more people begin to understand and reduce their impact on the environment, many are also appreciating the ‘green” benefits of using GPS Log Book.
The first green benefit of using GPS Log Book is that the system is entirely electronic: there is no need to waste reams of paper to manually record trips or to print pages of logbook data – once the data is uploaded to the website, you can categorise your trips and annotate each trip with comments electronically. At a click, a number of useful and easy-to-understand reports can be generated, including detailed SARS-compliant tax logbooks and extensive mileage and usage data, which can be sent to the relevant parties electronically.
The second green benefit of using GPS Log Book is that the device features only lead-free components. Lead is toxic if handled improperly and, if discarded improperly in landfills, it can contaminate drinking water or watersheds. As a socially responsible original equipment manufacturer (OEM), MiX Telematics uses manufacturers that are not only ISO 9001 compliant, but also comply with international Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) standards, although this is not a legal requirement in South Africa.
GPS Log Book not only provides you with a hassle-free way to record mileage accurately, but it also allows you to do so in a way that is kinder to the environment, recognising that each small effort can make a big difference in creating a sustainable future.
