Fleet Tracker Turns Up $30,000 in Stolen Assets

— September 01, 2011

Acres Group has recovered more than $30,000 in stolen assets, thanks to the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform’s reporting and alerts functionality. The landscaping services enterprise also reduced driver speeding by 92% through speed alerts sent via text to Acres Group North vice president Jeff Dumas and other Acres managers.
 
Since implementing the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform, Dumas has recovered equipment and vehicles on more than one occasion. Dumas said, “Through the alert functionality within the NexTraq platform, I receive a text message if any vehicle in our fleet moves before 5 a.m. In fact, I was able to use NexTraq to notify the police that a theft had occurred.”
 
Additionally, Dumas cites the Idle Report as a powerful tool to decrease fuel costs across his fleet.
 
Upon implementation of NexTraq, the Speed Alert feature let Acres know that a small percentage of drivers were exceeding posted limits at some point during the day. Using the NexTraq platform, Acres managers receive messages notifying them if an employee is speeding. Speed alerts dropped by 92% after just a few weeks.
