When I started my business many years ago I wanted my business to run like a well oiled machine. That was my sole focus everyday.
Though I had the best of intentions, I fell way short at times. In a nutshell I fell short because I didn’t have the right information available at my disposal. Information that would have saved me a lot of money and countless headaches at the same time.
For instance I was always concerned with what my employees were doing once they took the keys to my work trucks and went about their duties. Were they taking the shortest most direct route to each job site? Were they driving safely along the way? How long were they staying at each stop? Did the information they fill out on their log books match what really happened?
These worries kept me up at night for years on end. Though I went through a lot of trouble trying to only hire the best people possible for the job, once they were hired and on their own I had no way to verify what was happening other than to sneak around like a private eye. Doing so meant even more time invested in the business and less time enjoying myself. Not an ideal setup.
During my second career as a private eye checking up on my staff I discovered lots of things they shouldn’t have been doing. I caught people speeding way over the speed limit, straying way off their scheduled route, lying about where they were, filling out in accurate time sheets to just name a few infractions. I can only speculate about all the things I didn’t catch during these years.
Fleetmatics GPS Tracking would have solved my problems
Fleetmatics is a company that uses GPS technology coupled with some powerful field management tools to make operating your business both easier, and more importantly, less costly than figuring it all out on your own. Sadly I didn’t know this type of technology was available back then. If I did I surely would have been a customer of theirs. It would have made my job easier.
Using Fleetmatics to keep track of all this for me would have played a large role in transforming my operations into that well oiled machine I sought so badly. It also would have clued me in when my staff was doing things inefficiently and keep me from having to play private eye from time to time in an attempt to keep everyone honest. I could have done it all from my office, or mobile device.
While what I described so far is in and of itself pretty valuable, it is only the tip of the iceberg as far as what their company can provide. Their services are comprehensive in scope and can be tailored to meet your needs. You could keep all your account information in one location, schedule jobs, dispatch staff, invoice clients and have customers check on their job status if desired.
How to learn more about using Fleetmatics GPS Tracking
I learned about Fleetmatics from their Senior Business Developer Taylor Baucom. We met on LinkedIn and wound up chatting on the phone about the benefits of their service. Since then she has sent me a ton of informative information about how their service works and how it can totally simplify a whole bunch of tasks that used to take countless hours to get your head around.
