OKLAHOMA CITY (Jan. 4, 2016) — As snow falls across the cities of many Northern states the snow and ice removal industry smiles with glee. Snow plows make their way through the covered streets, ready to work and thrive in these conditions. Even better, a lot of snow removal companies have turned to a high-tech approach to completing their jobs with ease. Enter GPS tracker devices. US Fleet Tracking analyzes 4 GPS tracker benefits for snow removal companies.
1) Knowing where drivers are located: Live GPS tracker maps are helpful for the snow and ice removal companies as inclement weather rolls in. With this helpful feature, managers know their crews are safe and arriving at their destinations using the clearest, safest routes. Using the GPS tracker feature of the live tracking map means being able to position fleets to not only perform, but excel when speed and nimbleness is essential!
2) Scheduling multiple stops: Being prepared for calls that come in is one thing; being equipped to instantaneously schedule multiple team members and lay out their whole day of stops so they focus solely on the task at hand (completing as many service stops as reasonably possible) sets you apart. Planning out routes for multiple drivers at once is as easy as clicking a few buttons, entering destinations and allowing the GPS tracker to generate a smart route.
3) 1, 5 and 10-second updates: Fleet businesses, especially at peak times, are ever-changing. GPS tracker devices offer a range of updates. Depending on the device, management could have from 1, 5 and 10-second live GPS tracker updates. This is helpful to know the ongoing updates on geofences, speed alerts along with 90-day historical playback, text and email alerts and automatically generated email reports. The GPS tracker system sends all the information needed to make operating a snow removal company a cinch.
4) Weather overlay safety feature: Yes, snow removal plows are meant to remove the snow and ice, but if weather is going to get really bad no one deserves to be stuck in a mess. The Weather Overlay feature comes standard and gives comprehensive views of weather in any area desired. It works on any web-based system and from any computer or hand-held device, smart phones included. This makes job planning easier while being kept aware of changing weather conditions.
No matter how cold it becomes, snow plowing drivers are saying “let it snow”! Business is good when it snows, but it’s even better when they’re implementing the use of a GPS tracker system. The winter season may still be brewing up some delightful snowfalls in the near future and it pays to be prepared! It doesn’t matter if a fleet is old or new to the industry, if they haven’t started using GPS tracker devices in their company trucks, it’s not too late!
