Vehicle Trackers Help Lawn Care Businesses
If you live in Southern California there is a very good chance that you don’t own a lawn mower. The reason is not because most Southern Californians have gone so liberal that they don’t want to offend the rights of the lawn mower, but rather the fact that so many lawn care and maintenance companies operate in the region results in a very competitive and affordable marketplace. Through cost-effective labor, which is one of the positive results of a very high illegal alien population, lawn care and maintenance companies can maintain suburban lawns for as little as $30 a month in some areas. However, from the business side of things, managing multiple crews can be a difficult process. Manging trucks and other vehicles used for business used to be nearly impossible, but that was all before the creation of the portable GPS tracker.
GPS trackers are a staple among any business with a need for improved vehicle and fleet management. This is why the real-time GPS tracker units are so advantageous among lawn maintenance businesses. In the lawn care industry it is very common for a crew of 2 or 3 men in a small truck to maintain up to 20 lawns a day. If a lawn maintenance company employs 50 people, that would mean they are responsible for knowing where 20-25 trucks are at any given moment. The company would need to know not only where law n care professionals are at, but what residential, commercial and industrial locations they have already been. This is where GPS trackers can help.
"In the lawn care industry, almost all employees are laborers working with loud equipment, making it hard for the employees to hear cell phones or other communication devices", explained a fleet tracking expert for GPS Tracker Shop. "With the use of GPS trackers, managers can know where every one of their vehicles are at, which client houses they have already been to and when they are in transit. The satellite tracking devices also offer a unique form of asset protection to safeguard work trucks, and or expensive machinery."
Real-time GPS tracking is the process of remotely viewing where a vehicle or asset is at live. However, car tracking devices today also allow the business to view historical records dating back as far as 10 years!
Lawn care and maintenance companies can use information obtained from GPS trackers to make certain every customer is getting their lawn maintained, and that the workers are not spending an overly excessive amount of time at the residence. By improving fleet management plans, GPS trackers will continue to offer not only lawn care and maintenance companies a better alternative to observation and accountability, but any company looking to boost profits!
