Get Your Dancing Shoes Ready! It’s Time to “Shuffle Off to Buffalo.”
Buffalo NY, the “Queen City,” is the second largest city in NY and home of the Buffalo wing and… the windshield wiper. Okay, so windshield wipers aren’t exactly the coolest thing since sliced bread, but they are useful and efficient, right? I mean, how are you going to make it to service appointments on those rainy days without them? It probably wouldn’t be the safest bet to try it out. But along with the windshield wiper is another tool to help improve driving efficiency: GPS fleet tracking.
Let’s say your driver caused an accident on the road because he was speeding and driving aggressively. His excuse? “There was a buffalo chasing me!” Good one bud, but we all know that there are no buffaloes in Buffalo. So how do you prevent your drivers from causing dangers on the roadways? With GPS fleet tracking, you can use the Speed Alert to reduce speeding and aggressive driving within your fleet.
And when your drivers have time in-between appointments, are they leaving the engine running while enjoying some tasty Buffalo wings? Not only does vehicle idling eat up your fuel, but it also spreads harmful carbon emissions throughout the environment. With GPS fleet tracking, you can lower your fuel costs and keep the environment clean.
So your driver is headed to a service appointment and gets caught in bumper-to-bumper traffic on Kensington Expressway. What do you do? Well, you could call your customer and apologize for being late, or you could integrate a GPS fleet tracking solution into your fleet operations and avoid the situation altogether. With GPS fleet management, you can provide your drivers with the most efficient routes, getting them around traffic congestion and road delays. And when they are assigned multiple service stops in a day, you can use ClearPath routing to organize all stops by the shortest overall distance, getting them to jobs faster.
