While a GPS fleet tracking solution has numerous benefits: increased productivity and driver safety, decreased fuel, labor and maintenance costs, many customers find an unexpected benefit: recovering stolen vehicles or assets. And when you think about it, that’s the lifeblood of your business.
One landscaping company was able to recover $400,000 worth of stolen vehicles and equipment with their fleet management solution. Not only that, they were able to tell the police where their assets were so that they could be recovered.
Another customer uses the alert functionality to receive a text message if any of his vehicles move before 5 a.m. One of his managers was watching the vehicles’ movement in the NexTraq® solution and was able guide the police to the vehicle in time to arrest the thieves.
And that’s not mentioning potential insurance savings. A roofing contracting customer’s insurance company uses them as a model service company for its safety division. The insurance company points out to other companies the anti-theft and alert functionality.
