Linx Electric provides complete electrical system wiring for commercial and industrial facilities of all types and sizes in southern Louisiana. In June, with a growing customer base and over a dozen technicians serving an area more than 1,000 square miles, the company needed a solution that would provide real-time GPS data and allow them to efficiently route and communicate with technicians for faster service.
Linx Electric chose FieldLogix GPS Tracking System and ever since the company has had “more efficient communication, faster customer service, and improved navigation,” said Danyelle Braud, Dispatch Manager of Linx Electric.
Now may be the perfect time to invest in a GPS tracking system since the federal government will essentially pay for a large portion of it. Thanks to the extension and increased deductions with IRS Piggy-BankSection 179, businesses can write off up to $500,000 for equipment purchased during 2011.
When Jake Ackerman purchased Central Jersey Equipment, a John Deere dealership, the company had been in business for over 30 years and included several seasoned employees that were “too set in their ways.” At the time, Mr. Ackerman said managing his mobile employees and equipment was a daunting task and he “needed more control” so he decided to purchase FieldLogix’s GPS fleet tracking system.
Mr. Ackerman said, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure. FieldLogix’s tracking system has helped me to see which employees are the most effective and which ones are not. Now payroll is based on hours spent working, not just hours clocked in, so there’s real accountability. Not only are we saving money, but we can reward the drivers who are delivering the best results.”
Upon installing the FieldLogix fleet tracking system, Carlos’ suspicions were immediately confirmed. By using the tracking system’s activity reports, he found that his “honor system” was being abused by his employees. By having an accurate way to measure daily work hours, his overtime costs dropped immediately.
In fact, his overtime costs dropped by more than 2 hours per man per day with no change in the workload. Based on Carlos’ calculations, he paid for the entire first year of the system within the first 18 days.
FieldLogix, a San Diego company known for its innovative fleet tracking solutions, announced today that it has been named a 2011 TechAmerica High Tech Awards winner in the Outstanding Emerging Growth Category.
“We are honored to be selected as a winner for the 2011 TechAmerica High Tech Awards” said Yukon Palmer, CEO of FieldLogix. “This recognition validates the unique innovation of our system and its enormous potential.”
FieldLogix was recognized for the Outstanding Emerging Growth category, based on its innovation in the telematics industry and its proven ability to not only survive an economic recession, but even grow during it. “Because a fleet tracking system can provide an ROI in less than six months and immediately reduce fuel consumption, plus produce ecological benefits, companies both large and small are utilizing them to create profitable, sustainable fleets.”
FieldLogix is a green GPS fleet management solution designed to reduce fleet fuel consumption and improve productivity. FieldLogix has ranked among the 100 Fastest Growing Companies in San Diego for the past two years.“Wireless fleet management systems can put a spotlight on a driver’s habits that consume excessive fuel and emit unnecessary pollution. The most frequent of these activities include excessive speeding, idling and sudden acceleration and stops. Tracking these types of activities is essential to achieving a fuel-efficient green fleet,” said Yukon Palmer, CEO of FieldLogix. “We have dozens of case studies showing that with the right tools and strategy, you can reduce the average fleet vehicle’s operating costs by over $8,064 and reduce 2 metric tons of carbon dioxide pollution per vehicle annually with modern telematics technology and proper driver education.”
FieldLogix announced today that it has been selected as a finalist in the Outstanding Emerging Growth category for TechAmerica San Diego’s 17th Annual High Tech Awards. TechAmerica, the leading voice for the U.S. technology industry, proudly recognizes the accomplishments of regional companies every year at its annual awards ceremony. Finalists will be honored for their outstanding achievements on October 22, 2010 at the Hyatt Aventine in La Jolla.
FieldLogix was selected as a finalist in the Outstanding Emerging Growth category for 1) their product innovation in the telematics industry with the FieldLogix Green (Eco-friendly) Fleet Management System and 2) their ability to continuously increase sales without outside financing, despite the challenging economy.
TechAmerica is extremely excited to recognize those companies that have excelled in their fields and made outstanding contributions to drive the industry forward,” Kevin Carroll, regional vice president of TechAmerica San Diego, said. “As in the past, we will have a very difficult time selecting winners in each respective category due to the successes each company has experienced.”

FiedlLogix CEO, Yukon Palmer, will be speaking at the Green Fleet Management Conference on Wednesday, October 13, 2010, in Palo Alto, CA put on by Agrion. In his discussion, Yukon Palmer, a green fleet telematics expert, will provide attendees with valuable insights, ideas, and examples to help fleet managers create the most cost-effective and environmentally conscious Green Fleet possible for your company. Telematics is the use of technology to manage fleet vehicles and Mr. Palmer will discuss how it can help make your fleet greener and more efficient.
Mr. Palmer’s speech will reiterate that in light of today’s environmental issues and corporate responsibility expectations, the concept of Green Fleet Management should be important to all fleet managers, whether you have a fleet of one or one thousand. Developing and managing a green fleet requires a thorough knowledge of available products, technologies, and an in-depth cost-benefit analysis, plus much more.
