Morvent’s chose Fleetmatics for several reasons, including the speed of the system and the up-to-date Google Maps. According to Brian Pletz, Service Manager at Morvent’s, “We were using another vehicle tracking system to give us a general idea of where everyone was, but it had too many downsides, such as outdated maps and slow service.”
Fleetmatics includes Google Maps API Premier which provides current traffic information and location information down to the street level. In addition, the Nearest Vehicle Locator immediately pinpoints the vehicles closest to any job site for quick service.
Seeing Great Results from Reports and Alerts
While timecard management and live vehicle locations were the two initial features that interested Morvent’s in a GPS fleet tracking system, they have been very impressed with the other features as well, such as the Alerts, Reports, and Points of Interest (POIs). “We set up POIs so that we are alerted when a truck leaves or enters certain areas during non-working hours,” says Pletz.
The system also tracks vehicle speed and will alert you if a driver exceeds a preset speed threshold. The alerting features will also notify you if a vehicle idles for longer than allowed, further reducing fuel consumption. “We get e-mailed alerts for speeding and idling. Speeding has completely stopped, which is great for decreasing fuel consumption and our insurance rates," says Pletz. "We’ve also seen a big decrease in idling. I know that our drivers are a lot safer, and that makes me, and our customers, more comfortable.”
The Mobile App is "Worth it"
Pletz is also extremely impressed with the new Fleetmatics 8.0, the latest version of Fleetmatics. The updated version includes such features as "Ride Along," a new Mobile App, Garmin Integration, Driver Scorecards, and much more.
“The Android app is incredible,” says Pletz. “I can pull up Route Replay right on my phone. It runs super quick, the map shows up, and I can see the truck moving in real time. In fact, I am so impressed with the Mobile App that I can go as far to say that if Fleetmatics customers don’t have Smartphone’s, they should go out and buy one for the Fleetmatics app alone. It is so worth it.”
