Construction Companies Save Tens of Thousands of Dollars
Platform provides real-time fleet data and reporting features to help validate employee hours and ensure labor costs
NexTraq™, the value leader of GPS fleet tracking and vehicle management solutions, announces today that fleet tracking technology has proven benefits for the construction industry. Despite the down economy, integrating the NexTraq™ Fleet Tracking platform into fleet operations can help construction businesses improve driver productivity and increase service revenue.
“The current economy has taken a serious toll on the construction industry. With double-digit unemployment and infrastructure projects progressing slowly, construction businesses are searching for ways to positively impact their business operations,” said Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq. “NexTraq’s Fleet Tracking platform allows businesses to monitor fleet activity through real-time data to target problem areas and unnecessary expenses in their operations, helping companies save time and money.”
By tracking their fleets, NexTraq customers have experienced a decrease in fuel, labor and insurance costs while increasing their productivity and service revenue. Utilizing the Start/Stop Report and Speed Alert functionalities, Capeway Roofing, a leading provider in roofing and sheet metal in the northeast area, was able to gain accurate labor costs, increasing their service revenue.
“By using the reporting within the NexTraq fleet management system, we were able to minimize driver time discrepancies and realize ROI within two months,” said Dion Calheta, Project Manager for Capeway Roofing Systems. “Quickly doing the math, we realized that we were saving tens of thousands of dollars just on the Start/Stop Report alone.”
In addition to increased driver productivity and service revenue, Capeway Roofing Systems was also able to lower its insurance costs and receive additional savings due to NexTraq’s solution. Calheta adds, “The ability to find vehicles in real-time has lowered our insurance premiums. In fact, our insurance company’s safety division uses us as a model for other businesses for the anti-theft and speed alert functionality.”
