Side jobs and personal errands are a huge problem for service companies, such as plumbers, landscapers, electricians, and other similar businesses. The impact that this type of activity can have on your bottom line is huge. Your technician is using the company’s resources (fuel, equipment, time) for his or her personal gain.

The driver has a degree of freedom that your office staff does not have. They are allowed to drive an expensive asset loaded with thousands of dollars in tools and equipment. There is very little control that an owner or manager has without a monitoring system.watch The Red Shoes 1948 film now

A GPS tracking system gives the control that you need to effectively manage your field staff. It monitors the vehicle’s movement 24 hours per day. You can easily review a vehicle’s history to see if a driver was off task.

GPS tracking can give you peace of mind and more profits.
