In addition to first to market with two-minute reporting, Google Map integration and 32-point geofencing, the new advancements continue to reduce the time it takes for customers to realize ROI, with some customers achieving full ROI of their MARCUS purchase in as little as two months.
MARCUS Drive, an integrated GPS Dispatching Solution, provides instant messaging and navigation, in collaboration with the Garmin® Dispatching software. With real-time GPS tracking functionality and the in-vehicle Garmin device, managers and fleet dispatchers plan their day better by setting up a driver’s daily jobs, communicating through two-way messaging, addressing driver safety by pinpointing driver issues as they happen and ultimately, improving customer service levels, providing them with a competitive differentiator in the marketplace.
MARCUS Pulse offers an intuitive, graphical interface dashboard designed to help fleet managers and owners pinpoint the trends that increase cost and reduce overall productivity. An important upgrade in the 8.8.2 release is the customer’s ability to set their own goals on key performance indicators (KPIs) to benchmark fleet operations. In addition, taking into consideration customer feedback, 21 reports track overall fleet performance, including the ability to set up alerts and subscriptions to easily monitor productivity.
