San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2008
Armour Guard Products, a Fort Lauderdale, FL based company that manufactures and delivers a full line of car care products had drivers that were taking too long to make deliveries and the companies' fuel consumption was extremely high. They purchased and installed Vehiclepath™ GPS fleet tracking units and didn't tell any of their drivers they were tracking their delivery routes. Armour Guard recognized cost savings that more than paid for their GPS investment in a couple of weeks.
"Without GPS tracking we had no clue where our drivers were at, why deliveries weren't on time and why we were spending so much money in fuel," said Victor Mecca, President of Armour Guard Products. "Our goal was to find a better way to manage routes so our customers would get their deliveries on time and our office manager would know where a specific driver was quickly."
They installed a Vehiclepath GPS tracking unit on a drivers' truck that was routinely late and within a few days they quickly discovered what was happening. The driver would speed through his route and then drive 50-60 miles out of his way to go home for a couple of hours and then speed back to finish his deliveries.
"We set a speed alert and I would get notified via text message every few minutes when he was speeding around town trying to catch up on deliveries. I also set up a geofence (boundary) so I would be alerted when he was within 200 feet of his house. The fuel savings alone was enough to justify our GPS investment and we were able to better service our customers," continued Victor.
Companies using Vehiclepath for fleet management can also view all their vehicles on one web page, dispatch the nearest vehicle to their customer, and view online daily or monthly reports of mileage, speed and stops. A large majority of Vehiclepath customers recognize the return on their GPS investment in less than 30 days.
