As service companies grow and add more vehicles to their fleets, they are challenged to track vehicle whereabouts and driver behavior. Without some form of automated vehicle location (AVL) and telemetry (vehicle diagnostics) fleet managers are in the dark while their vehicles are on the road.
That’s why All-Air of Dade County, Florida is re-investing in its Webtech Wireless Quadrant job management solution. Integrated with Garmin®, the job management solution enables fleet managers to dispatch vehicles to their next location, and it saves drivers from needing to call for other dispatches or directions. Drivers can enter address information and get turn-by-turn directions.
Without their Webtech Wireless solution, fleet managers at this air conditioning solutions and service fleet would have no verifiable way of knowing how safely their drivers were driving. All-Air utilizes the Scorecard and LED feedback to maintain its driving quality. Dangerous driving is recorded on the Scorecard and drivers also see a flashing LED light that warns them that their driving is dangerous and it’s also being recorded.
Now, to fulfill All-Airs’ commitment of “professionalism, care and attention” to its customers, the company is increasing its investment in the Webtech Wireless’ Quadrant Job Management solution across the entire fleet.
Quadrant customer, MTS Sales & Service, has reported “a tangible reduction in the cost of fleet management costs of 69%.” This figure is based on the difference in the cost of their old fleet management solution and savings in vehicle usage using Webtech Wireless’ Quadrant. Gino Venditti, VP of Operations, says that in addition to the superior quality of service and reliability (at the above-mentioned reduction in cost), it is now possible to manage routes, forecast fuel usage, and monitor assets with real-time notifications of unauthorized vehicle use.
He added, “Having used other GPS-based solutions we knew of the positive ROI that this type of technology created, however other providers were unable to provide the quality of service and up-time that we found with Webtech Wireless”.
In addition to tangible cost reductions, they have also seen improvements in another, often less tangible way a company can make great gains: customer service. “We have improved customer satisfaction through the use of GPS based dispatching and resolved conflicts with customers revolving around service times using the GPS technology”, says Mr. Venditti.
MTS Sales & Service installs commercial kitchen equipment, such as dish machines, beverage equipment, and all other types of hot and cold commercial kitchen equipment. They also provide on-site repair and preventative maintenance services to their clients in western Pennsylvania.
