VALENCIA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
New York City has some of the world’s worst traffic, which is quite a challenge for small delivery businesses like Bronx Bakery. Bronx Bakery has delivery contracts with five different bakeries, each with its own specialties such as rolls, croissants and breads. The company owns a fleet of six trucks that deliver bakery products to restaurants, delis, small supermarkets, bodegas and anyone who sells bread in the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and Westchester, from 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. 364 days a year.
“We’re a small ‘mom and pop’ operation,” explained Gracie Valdes, Bronx Bakery’s second in command. “What we wanted was a GPS vehicle tracking solution that was easy to implement, easy to use and easy on the pocketbook. I spent two weeks investigating and talking to various providers before I selected LiveViewGPS.”
Bronx Bakery purchased the best-selling Live Trac G-5 GPS Vehicle Trackers, which operate on LiveViewGPS’ new Live Trac Platform, a next-generation, real-time vehicle tracking system offering 5- and 10-second vehicle tracking capabilities on highly sensitive receivers. The Live Trac GPS Platform features reliable 99.9 percent server uptime and requires no software to install. System updates are free, and live support is built into the platform.
“With the LiveView GPS tracking system we now have a bird’s eye view of the entire area,” Valdes said. “I go online, check out traffic patterns, congestion, accidents, weather conditions and other problems, then phone drivers with alternate routes when necessary. This allows us to keep to our delivery schedules, which our customers appreciate.
“If drivers fall behind on their schedules, there’s a temptation to speed and make up for lost time. Now we can spot speeders and call them to slow down. Not only does this increase driver safety, it also keeps our insurance rates from skyrocketing.”
Idling time can be a killer for any delivery business: keeping the engine running while making deliveries wastes fuel and money. LiveViewGPS starts/stops reports give companies accurate data on idling, so they can alert drivers about the problem. “We now save a couple of hundred dollars in fuel costs each month just by reducing idling times,” Valdes said. “That’s a lot of money for a small business like ours.”
