NexTraq, the value leader of GPS fleet tracking and vehicle management solutions, announced today that its client, Alternative Light & Energy Solutions reduced overtime costs by 30 percent using the NexTraq™ Fleet Tracking platform. Additionally, it was able to validate fuel card purchases against the data in the NexTraq solution.
Nick Mangelli, President of Alternative Light & Energy Solutions, said, “We have reduced our overtime costs by 30 percent by using the Start/Stop Report with the NexTraq Fleet Management platform as a virtual time card.”
Additionally, he was able to validate credit card receipts for fuel purchases against the data in the NexTraq Fleet Management platform to ensure fuel expenses are accurate.
Besides the business benefits Mangelli has received from the NexTraq platform, he was also happy with the company’s onboarding process. “Several of us went through the online training and were immediately ready to use the system. Additionally, our installation was seamless. We didn’t even know the installers were there.”
Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq, said, “Providing accurate labor costs is just one way our solution can benefit our customers. Service businesses with a fleet of vehicles deal with expensive overhead costs – whether it’s fuel, maintenance or insurance. By providing a tool to help minimize these costs and help them increase service revenue, we can help them grow their business.”
Mangelli cites that he has experienced no downtime since using the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform. And no regrets. Mangelli, said, “The NexTraq solution had everything we were looking for to improve our fleet operations.”
