The Global Positioning System (GPS) involves technology and applications readily available to business organizations and offers them the potential to positively impact operational efficiency. GPS allows an organization's operations management to monitor company vehicles, employees and assets in order to increase worker safety, reduce fuel costs and minimize overhead costs. In this capstone study, the author examined the factors related to the potential for GPSs to play a supportive role in optimizing business operations through the use of vehicle tracking. Data analysis was conducted using tabulation and cross tabulation of the qualitative survey data. Results from this study provide a guideline to business organizations in assessing the potential for GPS use to improve business operational efficiencies.
