Prior to implementation, Keil Southworth of Albertina Kerr Centers was unsure whether the FieldLogix GPS Green fleet tracking system would really help him to cut costs. So he decided to start with a trial unit to evaluate the product. He quickly realized how valuable and useful the system would be for his fleet. Once the trial period was over, Keil purchased 88 FieldLogix GPS fleet tracking devices for his entire fleet.
According to Keil, “Our fuel usage dropped by 1,100 gallons the first two weeks after installing the FieldLogix GPS units. The following two weeks our usage remained at 700 gallons under our average.” The fuel savings is typical of fleets that implement GPS fleet management systems. The Aberdeen Group surveyed users of GPS fleet management systems and found that they were able to reduce fuel costs by an average of 13.2 percent.
FieldLogix is an advanced, yet affordable GPS fleet management product that provides real-time location updates for vehicles. It automatically monitors activities such as excessive engine idling, speeding, and personal use of company vehicles. It scores drivers based on their “green” driving habits and includes alerts for afterhours use, excessive speeding, and deviations from a specified operating schedule. In addition, it provides real-time location updates for vehicles and sends maintenance reminder alerts when they are due for service.
Additionally, FieldLogix offers a free trial program for companies that are interested in seeing the fuel savings benefits of the system first-hand. A trial unit can be ordered at trial.fieldtechnologies.com.
