Boost Your Bottom Line With Easy to Implement GPS Tracking

Fleet managers find simple decreases in costs resulting in dramatic increases in profits.

Eliminating or reducing unnecessary overhead is the quickest and easiest way to increase profitability. And this new profit margin will produce a dramatic impact on your bottom line.

If your company relies on fleet vehicles cutting management and operations costs are a great place to start.

FoxTrax GPS software can help you reduce labor and operating and fuel costs while providing the acumens that can help your business increase productivity and safety.

Fuel can be one of the largest costs for any business operating a fleet. According to Ford Motor Company, every hour of idle time is equivalent to driving 25 miles. Reduce your fuel costs by decreasing idle time, vehicle speed and optimizing routes. FoxTrax GPS can help you do that by tracking how long vehicles idle, ensuring optimal fuel usage.

FoxTrax GPS tracking can also help you keep track of where your vehicles are at all times, improving dispatching and routing. Knowing where your vehicles are in real-time can help you better react to customer emergencies because you can see which vehicle is closest and what route to send them on to service that customer.

If a fleet vehicle is involved in an accident, it can possibly wreck your finances. One great way to help reduce accidents caused by human error is to reduce vehicle speed. FoxTrax GPS provides the visibility to tackle this within your fleet. FoxTrax GPS sets up alerts to notify you when a vehicle commits a speed limit violation so you can implement a safety policy that will help you reduce driver error and ultimately cost.

FoxTrax GPS is the smartest investment you can make when it comes to managing your fleet. FoxTrax GPS will prove its value in a short time and continue to cut costs as your business grows. Let FoxTrax GPS help you increase your bottom line.

"The Internet of Things" is Changing the Way We Do Business

Improved connectivity provides more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to increase efficiency, generate more savings, and improve safety and security.

The Internet of Things,(IoT), refers to a network of physical objects that can be accessed and controlled through the Internet.

The whole point behind the Internet of Things is for businesses and consumers to be able to use technology in order to maximize efficiency and, more importantly, save money.

Basically objects are embedded with technology that allows them to collect data, and us to access and communicate with them. For consumers this means we can control things like our heating and air conditioning, appliances, and security through the Internet. And for businesses we are realizing the ability to remotely monitor manufacturing floors, entire healthcare facilities, oil, gas and utilities, transportation systems and, you guessed it– fleet vehicles.

For FoxTrax users this is already a familiar concept. Our devices have been helping our customers monitor and manage their businesses more efficiently and effectively for years.

By installing Foxtrax GPS systems on a fleet of vehicles, fleet managers can make sure their drivers are using the most efficient routes possible, which not only helps drivers get where they need to go in as little time as possible but also helps save on gas money and vehicle maintenance.

Call Foxtrax GPS today to learn more about how we can help save money and maximize efficiency for fleet managers.

GPS Tracking in the Court Room

GPS live tracking has become very useful to law enforcement for investigations of theft. It is also gaining ground in the courtroom.

A Florida jury recently convicted three criminals for a string of armed robberies. Police were monitoring the suspects but were never able to catch them in the act, until they employed a GPS tracking device on the criminals’ vehicle. The defendants challenged the use of the GPS tracking device in court calling it “an unconstitutional search” but lost that challenge, as well as others. The Eleventh Circuit agreed with the lower courts, stating it “comfortably finds that the warrantless use of the GPS tracker was permissible”. In this case, the reasonable suspicion came via the police’s reliable informant, and surveillance footage of the Expedition at the scene of other robberies.

Fox Trax GPS fleet tracking has helped several customers track down their stolen vehicles and property, saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars. And, by installing their own GPS tracking on their fleet vehicles, time spent in court is greatly reduced. If you want to learn more about asset tracking contact a Fox Trax representative today.

FoxTrax GPS Devices Pay for Themselves

Learn to how FoxTrax helps this customer save money with durability and dependability!

GPS tracking can do a lot to help you better manage your day-to-day operations. But it only works if you have the right equipment. Robert Johnson operates a property maintenance service for businesses throughout Texas. He owns 40 vehicles.

Robert was using GPS tracking devices from another tracking company, but wasn’t getting the results he needed. In fact, the expensive devices continually broke down and were easily disengaged by employees. Robert turned to FoxTrax for help and immediately made the switch. He has not had any trouble with the devices or his employees since that day.

More importantly, his FoxTrax GPS Tracking System saved him more than $20,000 by helping police catch a would-be thief. Robert’s GPS tracking system was set up to send text messages to his phone anytime one of his vehicles left the company’s geofence area. One day he was alerted that a vehicle was on the move when it should have been parked. Police were able to track down the vehicle and the man who stole it. They also discovered he was using the vehicle to steal goods from other businesses. Robert recovered his vehicle and $6,000 worth of equipment. He also helped return almost $100,000 of machinery and tools to other the businesses involved.

Robert said by the end of the day his FoxTrax GPS tracking devices more than paid for themselves.

Distracted Driving and Your Business

Do your drivers depend on their cell phones for communication with your office, navigation tools, and customer calls? How many times a day does your dispatcher need to communicate with your drivers?

In a study conducted by the US Department of Transportation out of only 203 Commercial Vehicle drivers in just 16 locations there were a total of 4,452 safety critical events such as crashes, near crashes, and unintentional lane changes – and in well over 60% of those incidences distracted driving was the cause. Could your drivers be at risk? What impact does an incident like this have on your business?

FoxTrax GPS offers many solutions to the distracted driving problem – from navigation to GPS vehicle tracking. Your office can send your drivers routes, assign destinations, and find the closest driver to a customer location all without picking up the phone. Call us today to find your solution.
