Despite Rising Gas Prices, Dunphy’s ExtermaPest Uses FieldLogix GPS Fleet Tracking System to Cut Gas Costs by $700 a Month For a 10 Vehicle Fleet
Gas prices are typically low in January, but not this year. Currently the U.S. average price for a gallon of self-serve regular gas is $3.44, 17 cents more than one month ago, and 35 cents more than one year ago, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report.
Despite today’s sky-high gas prices, Ron Dunphy, president of Dunphy’s Extermapest in Palm Springs, California has seen a significant reduction in his fuel costs since implementing FieldLogix last year.
Dunphy said, “Before implementing FieldLogix, when gas prices were much lower, I was spending $3,400 a month on fuel for my 10 vehicles. You won’t believe how much I’m spending now. “
“After installing FieldLogix in my vehicles, I now spend $2,700 per month on fuel, even with higher gas prices!”
**These savings total $700 per month (or $8,400 per year!), which is more than double the amount he spends on the FieldLogix GPS tracking system.**
Dunphy further stated, “I no longer have to turn down jobs because my guys tell me they are too busy when, in fact, they are just sitting at home. By knowing where they actually are, I can determine who can take what service call and bring in more revenue for my business”.
FieldLogix is an advanced, yet affordable GPS fleet tracking system that provides real-time location updates for vehicles and construction equipment. It automatically monitors activities such as excessive engine idling, speeding, and personal use of company vehicles.
It has been described as “GPS on auto-pilot”, because users can create operating policies in the system and they will receive e-mail alerts when operators do not comply with these policies. This includes alerts for afterhours use, excessive speeding, and deviations from a specified operating schedule. In addition, it provides real-time location updates for vehicles and equipment and sends maintenance reminder alerts when they are due for service.
Here are some Fleet Tracking System Features that can help you instantly reduce fuel costs:
