By keeping track of our vehicles, issuing speed alerts and monitoring the Idle Report, we have been able to reduce fuel costs by 20 percent.
Roswell, GA (PRWEB) March 23, 2011
Atlanta-based Discrete Wireless, Inc., (http://www.discretewireless.com), the value leader in GPS vehicle management and fleet tracking solutions, today announced its client, Eagle Medical Service, has reduced fuel costs by 20 percent since purchasing the MARCUS® Fleet Tracking solution. Additionally, due to a reduced insurance premium, Eagle Medical Services was able to pay for the MARCUS platform three times over in the first year.
With 25 vehicles, Eagle Medical Service is growing at a tremendous rate with offices in both Memphis and Jackson, Tenn. Due to this growth, Larry Riedel, Operations Manager for Eagle Medical Service, and his management team started to research GPS fleet tracking solutions to manage their fleet operations.
Riedel said, “Other systems and devices were manufactured overseas and were cost-prohibitive. Some solutions lacked the maintenance plan that came with our Discrete Wireless purchase. Hidden costs with other providers’ solutions led us to select the MARCUS Fleet Tracking solution due to ease-of-use, price and functionality.”
Since implementing the MARCUS Fleet Management solution, Eagle Medical Service realized pure profit from its MARCUS purchase within the first half of the year.
Riedel said, “By keeping track of our vehicles, issuing speed alerts and monitoring the Idle Report, we have been able to reduce fuel costs by 20 percent, while improving our customer service. Our customers depend on us to be on time and treat them with the utmost care.”
Additionally, Riedel cites increased driver productivity through route optimization and a reduced workload for its fleet dispatchers. Eagle Medical Service has been able to maintain its tremendous growth with the MARCUS Fleet Tracking solution.
Mike Scarbrough, CEO of Discrete Wireless, Inc., said, “The success of Eagle Medical Service is the rewarding aspect of our long-term relationships with our clients. By providing ambulatory companies with a superior GPS fleet tracking solution, we are able to ensure clients can treat their patients on time and with care.”
By providing superior customer service to patients and hospital services, Riedel sees no end to their growth. Riedel concludes, “We will continue to maintain our growth while focusing on our greatest asset – our people.”
