Many seasonal businesses are reluctant to commit to products and services that bring year-round expenses for their businesses. It makes perfect sense. When the season is over, business is often non-existent until the next season rolls around. So is income in these situations. The last thing you need is a steady stream of bills coming in long after the money stops.

If you have a business in one of the below fields for example, you understand the realities of seasonal budgets all too well:

  • Snow removal
  • Lawn care
  • Holiday decorating
  • Natural gas delivery
  • Mulch delivery
  • Roofing contracting

One thing you don’t have to do without in order to conserve your bills during the off-season is GPS fleet tracking. Our company offers GPS tracking for your fleet without strings attached. You don’t have to commit to monthly GPS tracking contracts to enjoy the same benefits people who have made that commitment receive.

Instead, you can enjoy month to month GPS fleet tracking services to help your business be more competitive while operating more efficiently. There’s no way to lose – especially when you know that you’ve committed to no long-term GPS tracking contracts that could weigh your business down when the seasonal wealth winds down.

How Can GPS Fleet Tracking Help Your Seasonal Business?

The shocking thing for many seasonal businesses is just how beneficial GPS tracking can be. Sure, everyone understands that GPS tracking and routing can help businesses like yours save money on fuel, but it can also help in many other ways as well.

For instance, GPS fleet tracking can help you reduce your labor costs by encouraging drivers to stay on their assigned routes and to finish jobs in timely manners. This eliminates workers from robbing the clock of a few minutes on each job or taking care of personal errands on your dime.

GPS tracking allows you to plan your routes more efficiently creating opportunities to finish more projects in a single day and boosting profits radically.

Finally, GPS tracking can also be used to track tools and equipment that may sometimes go home with drivers, get left on job sites, or walk away in the hands of total strangers.

All of these things can either save your business a great deal of money or help your business earn even more money. It’s a winning proposition for the business owner – especially when you consider investing in GPS tracking without the strings of a long-term contract that wouldn’t benefit your business.

Non-Emergency Medical Transport (NEMT) companies like yours serve an important role in large and small communities alike by helping people get to their non-emergency medical appointments safely and on time. It is a need public transportation is unable to fill in smaller communities and often unreliable to fill in larger communities, especially for patients who have special needs. W

hile you probably understand that GPS tracking systems can help you with directions to new facilities and other locations, you may not be aware of the other benefits GPS fleet tracking can offer your NEMT business, like those listed below.

Plan More Efficient Routes

You may be responsible for helping several people make their medical appointments in the course of a day. The more people you are responsible for getting to their appointments, the more money your medical transport business stands to earn.

However, you can improve your earnings without increasing your costs for things like labor and fuel if you use GPS fleet tracking systems to maximize the efficiency of your routes each day. You can even use GPS fleet tracking to provide real time re-routing so that your passengers aren’t late for their appointments due to traffic jams, accidents, road work, and other issues that might slow you down.

Avoid Route Redundancies

One of the least fuel and time intensive things you can do in a day is provide double coverage to an area. What this means is that you have two drivers picking up and dropping off patients for appointments in similar areas at similar times.

Using GPS services to plan these routes can help to eliminate your risks of doing this. Planning better routes and avoiding redundancies means more people have access to the important service you provide without the need for you to increase the costs of providing these services.

Fast Emergency Location When Needed

The patients you are delivering to their medical appointments often have serious medical issues, illnesses, and other difficulties. It doesn’t take much for a non-emergency medical transport to become an emergency situation where professional medical assistance may be required.

GPS fleet tracking provides real time information about your location so that you can get fast access to the emergency services you require – or receive turn-by-turn directions to help you get to the nearest emergency facility to provide appropriate care for your passenger(s).

GPS fleet tracking systems are far more than GPS driving directions and route planning. For non-emergency medical transport companies, like yours, they are essential tools for effective route planning, managing your drivers in the field, and getting your charges to their appointments on time.

Do you own or manage a Non-Emergency Medical Transport (NEMT) Company that has a fleet of vehicles? If so, GPS fleet tracking may be able to help improve the efficiency of your fleet. Contact us at LiveViewGPS to learn more. 1-888-544-0494

The army has a hog problem and not the Harley Davidson variety. Instead, the army is struggling with feral hogs that are tearing up property, hindering conservation efforts, and causing a wide range of problems – including the threatening of endangered species on a large military base in Texas.

To solve this dilemma, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has turned to Clemson University professor and chair of forestry and environmental conservation, Greg Yarrow.

Clemson is currently engaged with the Corps of Engineers on two projects at the military base where the pigs are particularly problematic. One of the ways researches are helping is by exploring the contents of the stomachs of feral hogs to determine what they are eating throughout the calendar year. This helps determine where they are going seasonally. Another aspect is to analyze their locations and habitats.

That is where GPS tracking comes into the picture with researchers using GPS devices which collect an abundance of data, and then used to identify the locations where the feral hogs are getting access to food and where they are gathering. This is intended to help the Army can focus its efforts to curtailing the pig problem in the locations where they will be most effective.

How big of a problem can feral hogs become?

It is estimated that feral hogs cause roughly $44 million in damage to crops, timber, and livestock throughout the state of South Carolina each year. This is in addition to non-crop losses that result from the hogs taking out food plots, cutting off water supplies, damaging equipment, and more.

The problem is proving equally dramatic on the Fort Hood Army base in Texas, which is currently the largest military base in the world. The Army is using what it has learned from GPS tracking information, stomach content, and more to help fuel its research.

The state of South Carolina is watching closely though to use the information gained from this research project to learn more about new ways to curtail the economic damage these beasts cause the state year after year.

Participating in research efforts of this scale provides Clemson students and staff unique opportunities to offer their expertise in projects that are national importance, which is outstanding for the students and the university.
