GPS trackers: Technology with benefits
With each passing year it seems there is some new technological gadget and another reason to rely on electricity. From home, to work, and even while you’re on the go, everyday life just wouldn’t be the same without the electricity. This puts electricians in an interesting position as they wield the knowledge necessary to make certain that electrical output is what it should be. If you’re a fleet manager of a group of technicians then you know all too well how important the job of an electrician really is to others. We recognize that efficiency is a top priority. For this reason, we’re going to talk about 2 wonderful ways GPS trackers aid electric companies.
1.) The ability to decrease fuel costs: With live 10, 5, or 1 second updates (depending on the GPS trackers) it’s easy to see how drivers are going about their day. Management won’t have to question whether their electrical technicians are taking the shortest route, because paths can be easily programed into each of the GPS trackers. Monitoring things like excessive idling and aggressive driving can be helpful to quickly implement a new routine and save on fuel.
2.) The ability to provide accurate arrival times: If a customer is waiting for an electrician to come fix a problem the arrival time is pretty important to that customer. Using the information calculated out by the GPS trackers in each vehicle makes it easy for every driver to be able to provide accurate arrival times to their customers. Management will also know once the employee has arrived on location, when they leave, and when they’re back on the road to either head back to the office or go out on another call.
To continue conducting business in a cost-effective manner, electric companies could partake in the tremendously awesome technology with the benefits that GPS trackers bring. Having lower fuel costs and providing customers with accurate arrival times is certainly nothing to scoff at, as it could mean more money in your electric company’s bottom line. You can truly supercharge your business with GPS trackers. Are you ready?
