GPS Tracking for Plumbing Companies

GPS fleet tracking for plumbing company fleets - FleetLocate by Spireon - Fleet management for small & medium fleets

How Can GPS Tracking Help Plumbing Companies?

A plumbing company’s fleet performance can have a big effect on the company’s overall performance – and bottom line. That’s why FleetLocate’s GPS vehicle tracking solution gives you the tools you need to improve vehicle and routing performance, fuel efficiency, customer satisfaction, field service management, and more. Plus, FleetLocate‘s® ability to manage a mixed fleet means you can see your entire fleet at a glance.

Easy On-Time Vehicle Maintenance:

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

Lower Your Insurance Premiums:

Auto insurance companies often reward GPS fleet tracking users because they know you’ll receive driving reports to correct any safety concerns when it comes to safety and performance.

Dispatch & Route Optimization:

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 techs are routed to locations faster.

Your Customers Will Benefit:

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

Accountability Goes Up:

When techs know GPS vehicle tracking is on, they will be more responsible in preventing unauthorized use, excessive fuel consumption from speeding and unsafe driving. 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.
