Acres Group Recovers More than $30,000 in Stolen Assets with NexTraq
Leading professional landscaping company recovers stolen vehicles and equipment while reducing excessive driver speeding by 92 percent
Established in 1983, Acres Group, a premier professional landscaping company with three offices and 2 nurseries located in Illinois, needed a complete GPS fleet tracking solution to accurately monitor their vehicles. Jeff Dumas, Vice President of Acres Group North, said, “We originally had a low cost solution that didn’t provide enough functionality for our company. Because we lease space for our trucks throughout our market area, it was important to track vehicle movement at a moment’s notice.”
Due to the lack of functionality, Dumas decided to implement the NexTraq™ Fleet Tracking platform due to its ease of use and additional capabilities, including its reporting and alerts features. Dumas, said, “The sales and implementation process for more than 300 vehicles went extremely well.”
Since implementing the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform, Dumas was able to recover $30,000 dollars’ worth of equipment and vehicles on more than one occasion. Dumas said, “Through the alert functionality within the NexTraq platform, I receive a text message if any vehicle in our fleet moves before 5 a.m. In fact, I was able to use NexTraq to notify the police that a theft had occurred. One of our managers was watching the vehicles movement on the NexTraq website and was able to guide the police to the vehicle in time to arrest the thieves.”
Additionally, Dumas cites the Idle Report as a powerful tool to decrease fuel costs across his fleet.
Upon implementation of NexTraq, the Speed Alert feature let Acres know that a small percentage of drivers were exceeding posted limits at some point during the day. With the NexTraq platform, Acres managers receive messages notifying them if an employee is speeding. After a couple of weeks the speed alerts were reduced by 92%.
Acres Group has also implemented the NexTraq Fleet Dispatch solution on several vehicles for easy communication between the office and its drivers. With the ability to reduce operational costs, Acres Group can pass those savings on to the customer. Its core corporate tenet, “commitment to excellence for knowledge and customer service,” will keep the Acres Group moving forward for years to come.

Curbing the Need for Speed
Alt-tag: Do your employees have the need for speed? When they leave for a jobsite in one of your vehicles do they obey the speed limit? What about in a school zone, are they slowing down or are they speeding to get to their next appointment on time? How do you really know if they are obeying all of the rules of the road if you aren’t in the vehicles with them?) After all, if you truck has your business’s name on it, it can be little more than a moving complaint
NexTraq’s Posted Speed functionality and reports let you know the actual speed of your vehicles in relation to the posted speed limits on the roads they travel. This lets you know who is speeding, where and when they were speeding and how fast they were going. You can even set up Alerts to know exactly when thresholds that you set have been broken.
Posted speed not only increase safety and helps to identify and educate repeat offenders, it can significantly reduce the number of driver speeding offenses, help reduce liability and insurance premiums, and improve fuel efficiency.
Without a system in place to monitor your drivers’ speeds, there is no way to take corrective action until it is too late.
