Bobby & Steve’s Auto World Saves $25,000 in Fuel Costs
Minneapolisbased auto service company keeps drivers accountable while automating its fleet operations across seven stores
NexTraq™, the value leader of GPS fleet tracking and vehicle management solutions, announced today that its client, Bobby & Steve’s Auto World saves more than $25,000 annually within its 24/7 towing operations while also holding drivers accountable for submitting correct receipts for customer pick-ups. Additionally, the customer-centric auto service company implemented NexTraq’s Fleet Dispatch to ensure drivers arrive at a service call as quickly as possible.
Mike Duzan, Automotive Operations Director for Bobby & Steve’s Auto World, said, “We looked at two GPS fleet tracking companies, and decided on NexTraq because of the platform’s extensive reporting and tracking capabilities.”
Duzan said, “The reporting functionality lets us pinpoint fuel information and we can attribute a savings of $25,000 in fuel costs annually within our towing fleet.”
The Fleet Dispatch application lets Duzan know exactly where his drivers are and that they have responded promptly to a service call. It also provides his crew with voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions when going to a pick up location.
Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq, said, “Our fleet tracking platform gives our customers the tools they need to substantially save in overhead costs, whether it’s fuel, maintenance or insurance. With new fuel report functionality, we had taken our technology one step further, simplifying our customers’ fleet operations.”
