Using GPS Fleet Tracking to Grow Your Plumbing Business

17 Jun 2020

As a plumbing business, much of your day is spent on the go. The same holds true for your employees. You travel from one job to the next meeting your customers’ needs. You may understand that GPS fleet tracking can help you plan more efficient routes, saving you money on fuel as you go about your days. But what you may not realize is that it can help you grow your plumbing business in all these ways and more.

Eliminate Inefficiencies

Chances are good that you have employees that are taking advantage of the time they are out of sight to take care of a little personal business on company time. They may be running errands on your clock, in your vehicles, while using your gas – and that is costing you, big time. By identifying the offenders, you can trim the fat from your organization, allowing you to invest more into your business with employees who respect your organization and act accordingly. Just set your GPS system to notify you if there are unscheduled route deviations so you can get to the bottom of things.

Boost Customer Experience

Customers like to know when you’re going to arrive so they can plan their days around your arrivals. GPS tracking allows you to create accurate appointment schedules to make your customers happy with your performance. More importantly, accurate routing directions ensure your drivers don’t get lost along the way. You can also share the GPS information with customers so they can track drivers en route to their homes to spare them from calling to ask if your staff is coming yet.

Protect Your Reputation

An added bonus of GPS fleet tracking is that it provides precise information on location and time. That means you can track exactly how long your plumbers spent at a specific job site. If disputes occur, you have definitive confirmation of the amount of time your plumbers spent at a location to back up your billing.

Improve Driver Performance

Another way to protect your reputation is by keeping your drivers in check as they move from one location to the next. Set up instant alerts to monitor speed, driving behaviors (swerving, hard braking, aggressive driving, etc.), and other actions behind the wheel so that you can address poor driving performance swiftly.

You can do a lot to boost your bottom line and help your plumbing business grow by using GPS fleet tracking. These methods for growing your business are only the beginning.
