Regardless of whether it’s a down economy or not, construction businesses need their employees to work as efficiently and productively as possible. Take Evrard-Strang Construction, Inc. for example. Because their employees took the company vehicles home at night, they didn’t have an efficient way to monitor their employees’ productivity or prevent unauthorized vehicle use. After implementing a GPS fleet tracking solution from NexTraq®, Evrard-Strang Construction, Inc. was able to eliminate personal driving and increase productivity.
Based out of Marion, Illinois, Evrard-Strang Construction, Inc. provides a full line of services including design-build, construction management and commercial and industrial construction. The construction contracting company implemented a fleet tracking solution not only to monitor employee activity but to also help alleviate some of the costs of doing business. Because the NexTraq solution enabled Evrard-Strang Construction, Inc. to monitor vehicle location and driver behavior, they were able to save money on fuel and insurance costs.
The outcome? Jodie Evrard, Office Manager for Evrard-Strang Construction, Inc. said, “The NexTraq GPS Fleet Tracking solution has definitely been beneficial as well as essential for our growth and for cutting costs. The solution pays for itself. Every single month, it pays for itself.”
