GPS Vehicle Tracking for the Field Service Industry
In addition to our office management solutions, Marathon Data Systems provides field force automation solutions, such as an integrated GPS Vehicle Tracking solution, designed for companies in the pest management, lawn service, heating, air conditioning and plumbing, and janitorial, maid and carpet cleaning service verticals, among others. The field service industry has been hit particularly hard on fleet operating costs, as a result of rapidly rising fuel costs and the state of the current economy. Studies have shown that companies utilizing GPS in their fleets have experienced both significant cost reductions and improved employee productivity.
Marathon Data Systems’ GPS Vehicle Tracking solution goes one step further than standalone GPS systems by integrating GPS functionality into its industry-leading office management software, allowing companies to simplify operations by accessing one application to manage all of their service operations.
Our integrated GPS solutions provide all the functionality available with other leading GPS vehicle tracking solutions, such as the ability to:
- Track vehicles in real time
- Monitor truck usage and deliver alerts via text message or email to managers for aggressive driving, usage of the vehicle after hours, usage of the vehicle outside geographically defined areas and excessive idling among other trigger options and,
- Reduce insurance premiums
By tightly integrating GPS vehicle tracking with our office management software, we allow users to see services scheduled within their office management system on a fully functional GPS map, along with the current location of technicians. Additionally, our GPS Vehicle Tracking System is fully integrated with Garmin devices, allowing companies who install Garmin units in their vehicles to send new appointments directly from their office management software to their technician’s Garmin. When coupled with our integrated route optimization solution, companies can see further improvements in the efficiency of their service routes and the quality and accuracy of their data.
