Odessa, TX; Edmonton, AB (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
Safefreight Technology today announced that Light Tower Rentals (LTR), a Texas based oilfield equipment rental firm, has commenced the deployment of Safefreight's SmartFleet® GPS fleet management system for their fleet of over 100 vehicles.
SmartFleet® provides Light Tower Rentals the ability to monitor the safety and security of their drivers and fleet assets in real time. SmartFleet® Manager - Safefreight's fleet management software will also provide LTR with the ability to generate reports to enable LTR to analyze vehicle metrics. Data from reports can be used to enhance the management of their fleet and workforce - ultimately to improve customer service and verification of hours worked by employees.
"Our previous provider didn't have the range of functionality that Safefreight offered," said Keith Muncy, Chief Financial Officer of Light Tower Rentals. "We evaluated other vendors, but we chose Safefreight because of their ability to customize a solution that met our needs," added Muncy.
In addition to safety and customer service benefits, SmartFleet can also track other key performance indicators such as engine hours, mileage and more. Milestone and threshold data are communicated through the web and accessed online by LTR's fleet manager so that he can take immediate action to avoid potential problems and failures, and schedule maintenance only when it's required. Productivity reports that summarize important asset specific information will provide the set of tools to ensure that LTR has the information to support the efficient management of their mobile and human resources.
"Our collaborative approach to custom solutions is founded on building long-term, sustainable partnerships with clients," said Curtis Serna, CEO of Safefreight. "By leveraging the years of expertise in Safefreight's professional services team, our goal is to provide customers like LTR cost-effective solutions that bring immediate ROI," added Serna.
