How Plumbing Companies Can Benefit from GPS Fleet Tracking

19 May 2015

The hard work of managing a successful plumbing business is about to get much easier. If you’ve been sitting on the fence about getting GPS for your plumbing fleet, now is the time to move on over to the greener side. The benefits of GPS fleet tracking for your business are simply too good to pass up, beginning with these.

Happier Customers

No one has to tell you how impatient plumbing customers can be. Whether it’s frozen pipes, toilet cracks, or leaks spread throughout the house when plumbing emergencies occur, homeowners want relief right away.

The ability to provide spot-on estimates when it comes to arrival times provides instant peace of mind to customers and the ability to track the driver’s location as he approaches the home saves your dispatchers the chore of answering endless calls asking “Is he coming sometime this century?”

GPS fleet tracking allows you to provide accurate timetables while also providing you with the ability to let customers track your trucks as they are on the way. It’s a great way to make them happy and keep them satisfied with your service.

Lower Labor Costs for Your Business

An unintended consequence for many plumbing companies is that using GPS fleet tracking services reduces the number of hours drivers spend on the road. This allows them to finish their workdays faster and saves you a pretty penny on overtime payments when jobs run over due to long driving distances, circuitous routes, or time stuck in traffic. Over the course of a year, those savings can really add up.

Reduction in Fuel Costs

Fuel costs are no laughing matter to the average plumbing company. Depending on how many vehicles you have on the road, you understand the value of saving pennies on fuel whenever possible. GPS tracking allows you to work around slow and stalled traffic while still finding fuel saving routes to take from one job to the next saving your business time and money – everyone wins!

Improve Dispatching Ease

Dispatchers have a tough job most of the time. It’s not only a balance between which jobs are the biggest priority, but also knowing where all your trucks are at a given time and which ones are actually closer in time and distance to the next emergency on the list.

It takes time to sort out all the detail and make the decision for mere mortals. Something GPS tracking systems can do with only a few clicks of the mouse. This frees up personnel to take care of other important business on behalf of your plumbing company while ensuring your drivers and customers are still being properly taken care of.

With so many wonderful benefits and reasons to bring GPS fleet tracking into your plumbing business, the big question on everyone’s mind is “what’s stopping you?” Now is the perfect time to bring your business into the modern era and incorporate GPS fleet tracking and other new technologies designed to improve efficiency and help your plumbing company serve your community even better.
