"JRS, Inc. installed the GPS solution by TRAXXIS in April 2011. The cost savings were immediately recognized.
Through “after hours operation” monitoring, we eliminated our unauthorized usage saving fuel and vehicle maintenance.
Through “excess speed” alerts, we were able to better control excess speed and the inherently higher fuel costs.
By reviewing a simple “idle time” report, we eliminated the practice of crews eating lunch in trucks with the engine running and the AC on. We weren’t even aware this was happening. We do allow the trucks to be garaged at the drivers’ home and, through the use of “geo fence” alerts, we can better control vehicle utilization.
An important benefit is our ability to verify individual job time on our service trucks. This helps control overtime through “start-stop time” reporting compared to crew time sheets and gives us the needed verification of billable time on each job by monitoring arrival times and departure times for crews at individual job site locations.
Our overall experience has been positive and with virtually no equipment or service issues."
