Keep your customers comfortable and happy in their homes and places of business, with faster response times, better service and a simpler way to do business with you.
Turn to Spireon FleetLocate GPS vehicle tracking solution to get your entire team on the same page. Plus, FleetLocate‘s ability to manage a mixed fleet means you can see your entire fleet at a glance.
We know that HVAC businesses like yours are under pressure to meet immediate needs when weather is extreme; a heat wave generates a large volume of calls due to air conditioning breakdowns, and cold temperatures bring the same for heating system failures. You need to be able to deploy your HVAC technicians efficiently and quickly, but you also need to be able to manage fuel and maintenance costs for your vehicles. With FleetLocate, you can do that and more easily on desktop or mobile, whether you have vans, worktrucks, pickups or a combination. Most important, though, is that FleetLocate helps you provide a higher level of customer service to your HVAC customers when they need it most.
With FleetLocate, the benefits come built-in:

Mileage Tracking for On-Time Vehicle Maintenance:

Don’t let a broken down vehicle affect productivity. FleetLocate alerts you when maintenance is required on each vehicle so that breakdowns rarely, if ever, occur.

Efficient Dispatch & Routing:

With FleetLocate, you’ll always know where all of your vehicles are in real-time. And when you know that, you can dispatch more effectively and make sure your field techs are routed to locations faster.

Greater Customer Satisfaction:

FleetLocate means on-time service. And that means happy customers. With its GPS vehicle tracking, FleetLocate can help you deliver your techs to customers faster, and if there are any delays, allow you to communicate updated times with customers.

Savings on Insurance Premiums:

By tracking your fleet, including receiving alerts on driving performance and proactively correcting issues, your auto insurance company could reward you with better rates. The savings can really add up.

Improved Driving Safety:

When field techs know GPS vehicle tracking is on, they will be more responsible in preventing unauthorized use, as well as excessive fuel consumption from speeding and idling. Also, times on and off the job sites will be more accurate and easily verifiable.

Fuel Card Savings:

This is where lower fuel costs start – combining the Spireon WatchCard with FleetLocate. It’s the simple way to monitor and centralize fuel purchases through this universally accepted card, and it can be your one tool to reduce wasteful practices and eliminate fraudulent purchases.
