How Street Sweeping Companies Can Benefit from GPS Fleet Tracking

13 Jun 2016

Street sweeping companies play important roles in cities large and small. Your mission is to keep streets clear of debris and the foul odors a collection of debris can leave behind. Of course, you don’t need anyone to tell you how important your role is for keeping cities and towns attractive for residents and visitors alike. What you may not know, though, is that GPS fleet tracking can help you do your job more efficiently and offer a much better overall profit for your business. These are just a few ways GPS fleet tracking can help you stay on top of things with your business.

Coordinate Street Cleaning Efforts around Peak Traffic Times

Traffic can be a real problem for street cleaning services. Not only does it clog the streets, but it also slows the street cleaners down. Scheduling street cleaning services for times of day when traffic is lowest in any given area helps to minimize the disruptions and allows drivers to maintain a better schedule.

Ensures no Coverage Gaps

It’s true that not all streets need to be cleaned as often as others. Higher traffic streets tend to collect more garbage, leaves, and other debris. This means that these higher traffic areas will need more frequent cleanings. At the same time, you don’t want lesser traveled roads to fall through gaps that could result in costly and potentially lethal flash flooding or other problems. GPS fleet scheduling software can help you to stay on top of the lower traffic areas so that they are worked into the rotation routinely in order to keep them nice and clean too.

Reduce Double Coverage Areas

While areas that get lost in the mix are bad for business – and for your city – so are areas that are covered more than necessary by mistake. Sometimes it can be as simple as two sweepers being scheduled to do a certain street or adding an extra sweeping on the schedule by accident. GPS fleet tracking systems can eliminate that by automatically logging the last time each area was covered so that none are covered more than necessary.

Improves Vehicle Maintenance

This one, more than many other money saving reasons to use GPS fleet tracking is the one that takes the most people by surprise. The simple act of automatically scheduling maintenance for vehicles when needed extends the life of your sweepers. Even if it only extends the life one year per sweeper, the savings for your business can be substantial.

Beyond that, safe equipment is safer to operate, runs more efficiently (leading to lower operating expenses), and has fewer breakdowns, which disrupt the flow of the business day and cost sweeper businesses big money and, sometimes, expensive repairs.

It’s the little things that make such a difference. Something as small as installing GPS fleet tracking can save your sweeper business big money, fast!
