A few years ago, the plumbing industry was still uninterested in GPS Tracking. Today, more and more plumbing companies are recognizing the power and value of fleet management technology for their operations..
So what changed? Plumbing companies began to realize that some of their plumbers were more efficient than others; getting to their job sites, doing their work and heading off to the next job. Other plumbers were much less efficient, taking longer times to drive to sites, and spending more time idling in their vehicles before and after each job. Plumbing companies have started to use GPS fleet tracking technologies to monitor their plumber’s behavior, including when jobs are started and completed, how much time is spent driving, if the drivers are taking the best routes, and how much time workers sit idle instead of answering service tickets. Plumbing companies realized that they should have been praising the first type of employee, while curbing the behaviors of the second type. With GPS tracking technologies, they were finally able to measure each employee and treat them appropriately. As a result, customer service was enhanced, and operational expenses were reduced.
With reports that make it possible for managers to monitor idle time, routes taken, speeds, the number of stops made per day and the duration of actual time at the jobs, companies can control their costs in ways that they could not before adopting GPS tracking solutions.
