Running a business takes energy, time, and money. You invest in a building or office space. You invest in quality products and services. You try to hire the best and most qualified people. You build your brand and reputation off of the quality and reliability of your service. You take pride in the high level of customer focus and integrity you provide.
You take pride in your work trucks and the beautiful wrapping that highlights your company. As a business owner, you take pride in what you built. It is very difficult to control what your employees do when you are not with them. Our GPS fleet tracking solution gives you visibility to your employees’ driving behavior and your trucks.
Reckless driving and speeding are incredibly damaging to a business. First, there is the safety aspect. Unsafe driving behavior leads to increased traffic tickets and potential accidents which leads to increased insurance costs, and depending on the severity of the accidents the costs could put a business out of business.
Second, is the costs of maintaining your vehicles. Harsh cornering, harsh braking, harsh acceleration, and speeding take a toll on your vehicles. You will end up replacing brakes, tires, shocks/struts, and other components more frequently. Also, with continued wear and tear, you will be replacing your vehicles more frequently.
The last component is your reputation in the community. How do potential customers view your company? For example, if your drivers are speeding and driving in an unsafe manner, a potential customer may not want to do business with your company.
Our GPS fleet management solution gives you the ability to monitor speeding, harsh acceleration, harsh braking, and harsh cornering. You can receive immediate alerts or daily reports identifying drivers that are driving recklessly and in an unsafe manner.
Through the use of our solutions, companies have realized a 90%+ reduction in speeding violations and unsafe driving behavior. By monitoring reckless driving you can ensure your drivers are driving in a safe and responsible manner, prolong the life of your vehicles, and know your company’s reputation is protected.
There are two questions I get all the time from potential clients, and I love answering these questions: How much is this going to cost? Why are companies on the internet cheaper?
First, the cost is not a cost. It is an investment in your fleet, in the safety of your employees, and in your company. On average, our customers realize an 18-20% reduction in their monthly fuel costs, a 25% reduction in their vehicle maintenance costs, and a 30-35% increase in productivity.
Second, if you are looking for a low price leader, we are not that company. We are competitively priced with other premier providers. We are proud of the quality, reliability, and advanced technology we deploy in our platform. We work with top-tier partners like Google and Amazon Web Services. Our hardware is built with the most advanced technology and backed with a lifetime warranty.
Lastly, we take pride in the relationships we build with our customers. At Easy Fleet GPS, you are not just another invoice. You are a business that we want to build a long-term productive relationship with, and you will always be able to speak with a live person.
“Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten.”
Do you know the cost to your business when a vehicle breaks down? What is the lost business?
Easy Fleet GPS provides several features that will help you to prevent and reduce breakdowns and downtime.
Our GPS solution allows you to monitor your vehicle’s battery voltage. You can set an alert to receive an instant notification when the battery drops below a certain voltage. Now you can charge or replace a battery before it dies, avoiding breakdowns and downtime.
We still see companies manually tracking miles and services. With Easy Fleet GPS, the monitoring of your regular scheduled services can be automated!
Now you can proactively manage your vehicles, so you will have a healthier and well-maintained fleet.
By using the tools Easy Fleet GPS provides, you will have peace of mind knowing your vehicles are properly running, you are doing everything possible to reduce downtime and prevent breakdowns, your vehicles are safe and healthy, and you are prolonging the vehicle life.
“Thank you Easy Fleet GPS for aiding in the recovery of our stolen Ford F350 so quickly. Thank you for providing such a great and reliable service!” – Henry Castro – BCM Masonry
Peter, I just wanted to tell you a quick story of what happened and how Easy Fleet GPS worked for us.
Our drivers were arriving back to the yard and parking our trucks. I was helping them back in and everything seemed like just another normal day.
When I got to my desk, I checked the Easy Fleet GPS mapping platform to make sure all the trucks were stopped and in the yard. I noticed our Ford F350 was moving and thought it was a bit strange since just minutes ago we parked them.
When I went downstairs to check who might have taken it, another worker notified me that he thinks someone might have stolen it.
I quickly pulled out my phone and started to track the Ford F350 on the Easy Fleet GPS mobile app. At 3:19 PM the truck was stolen, by 3:26 PM the truck was located parked behind a liquor store. By 3:35 PM we had local sheriffs on-site already responding to the incident.
If we did not have Easy Fleet GPS this situation would have ended up much differently and we would not have recovered our stolen truck.
One of the biggest costs to a company is the theft and replacement of assets and equipment. Our Easy Fleet GPS Equipment and Asset Management solution will significantly eliminate this risk.
Whether you have yellow heavy equipment on a construction site, combine farm equipment, generators, trailers, or any valuable equipment, we offer an asset management solution to fit your needs. With the ability to set up unlimited landmark boundaries you will be notified if a piece of equipment leaves a job site or company yard.
With our advanced tow notification, you will know if your equipment is moving without having an ignition on event. In addition to reducing theft and increasing the chance of recovery, our Equipment and Asset Solution monitors engine hours, provides 10-minute updates while moving, auto sleep mode while disconnected from power, and has an internal back-up battery that will last 60 days while disconnected from power.
The telematics data provided by monitoring your equipment and assets will allow you to better manage your inventory of assets, know the utilization of your equipment and assets, and provide peace of mind knowing where every piece of equipment is located.
Our equipment and asset devices are weatherized and ruggedized to handle to demands of a construction site or any weather conditions.
Many people have heard the term “Landmarks”, but aren’t exactly sure what they are and their value.
In simple terms, a Landmark is a boundary around an office location, company yard, job site, distribution center, customer location, or any location your employees may visit. Also, if your employees take the company vehicles home, you may want to set a landmark around their house.
A Landmark captures the time when your vehicle arrives and leaves a location, how long it was stopped, how long it traveled within the landmark, and how long it idled within the landmark.
So why is this information important? Well, there are several reasons. Many customers pay their employees or bill customers based on how long they were at a job site or customer location. By creating Landmarks, you will know exactly when your employee arrives and leaves a location, and how long they were there. Have you ever received a call from a customer claiming your employee arrived 20 minutes late or left early? Now, you can know when your employee arrived and left.
Additionally, Landmarks can aid in the recovery of stolen vehicles or heavy equipment. Again, you create a Landmark around our company office or job site. If a vehicle leaves the Landmark in the middle of the night you can receive an immediate notification that a vehicle or asset has left that location.
As business owners, we like to trust our employees. We can’t see all of our field employees without the help of GPS fleet tracking. Throughout the day an employee could take advantage of this freedom. Many companies, especially where the employee brings the company vehicle home, have set a Landmark at the employee’s house. This is important for several reasons. First, you can know if the employee is going home during the day and not working. Second, you can tell if the employee is using the company vehicle for personal business. Third, you can tell if the employee is doing side-jobs using the company’s assets and materials.
Companies can also set Landmarks around locations where your employees should not go. For example, bars or competitor locations. Through the use of Landmarks, one customer determined that an employee was selling company materials to a competitor. Additionally, you want to limit your risks and liabilities by knowing if an employee stopped at a local bar to have a few drinks between jobs or at the end of the day prior to driving the company vehicle.
In summary, Landmarks can help reduce your payroll/overtime costs, allow you to provide accurate billing to customers, aid in the recovery of stolen equipment, and help in reducing your risks by knowing where your employees are visiting.
Payroll costs are one of the highest costs for a company. Yet without employees, a company will not be productive. The challenge for most companies is how to balance and manage payroll costs, overtime costs, and ensure their employees are actually working, especially when an employee works in the field.
On a regular basis, we hear from employers that they are not sure where their employees are and whether they are working or being unproductive. Another major concern is monitoring side jobs, where the employee collects cash, yet uses the company’s materials and assets to perform a personal job either during working hours or during off-hours. The company does not receive any of the revenue from these side jobs.
Through the use of the Easy Fleet GPS advanced technology, employers can see when their vehicles are moving especially during non-working hours. Also, if employees bring company vehicles home, an employer can set up a geo-fence around the employee’s home.
Business owners and fleet managers will know exactly when a vehicle arrives and departs from a job site or customer location. Through real-time data, you will know if your field employees are actually doing what you are paying them to do.
Through the use of our real-time GPS technology, one of our landscape customers recently reduced their overtime and payroll costs by over 50%. They learned that technicians were completing jobs between 2:30 PM and 4:00 PM, then they would drive around or stop at a fast-food restaurant and return to the yard at 4:30 PM to get paid for the full day.
Also, one of our pool cleaning customers determined that their cleaning technicians were performing side jobs between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM, collecting cash while using the company’s supplies and chemicals.
The investment you make in using Easy Fleet GPS and our solutions will help your company reduce costs, increase productivity, and increase profitability.
Well, Easy Fleet customers are this happy. Businesses that use our service know they are doing everything possible to ensure they are building a safe and responsible fleet of drivers. Also, through using our solutions, they are reducing the costs associated with managing a fleet in order to help their company be more profitable.
Our customers experience ROI in the first 30-45 days of using our service.

Also, our customers have peace of mind knowing that their vehicles are healthy and well-maintained, reducing the chance of mechanical failures and keeping their employees safe. Fleet managers and business owners can rest easy that they are doing everything possible to protect their employees and the reputation of their company, by monitoring speeding and all aspects of driving behavior.
Did you know that monitoring the speed that your vehicles drive can be profitable to your company?
Excessive speeding can dramatically reduce fuel efficiency and increase your fuel costs, but many of us don’t realize by just how much.
It’s true. Your vehicle’s gas mileage decreases once it gets past its optimal speed. For most vehicles, this is around 55 mph. This means that every time you go over this speed, you’re essentially wasting fuel and money. You’d be surprised to learn that a slight decrease in your highway driving speed could significantly reduce your fuel consumption, while only adding a few minutes to the travel time.
According to studies backed by the Department of Energy, the average vehicle will be at its advertised peak efficiency MPG at 55 mph. As the speed increases you lose up to 28% of efficiency when traveling at highway speeds!
– 3% less efficient at 60 mph
– 8% less efficient at 65 mph
– 17% less efficient at 70 mph
– 23% less efficient at 75 mph
– 28% less efficient at 80 mph
Are Your Easy Fleet GPS Speed Alerts Set? Are You Coaching Your Drivers?
Easy Fleet GPS real-time speeding alerts ensure your drivers are driving in a safe manner, and will provide significant savings in fuel cost.
Easy Fleet GPS offers two types of speed alerts. One is a top end “threshold” alert. Set the threshold at, for example, 70 mph, and if a driver exceeds that alert you will be notified that they exceeded that speed.
The other alert is a “posted speed” alert. Set this alert to be triggered if a driver exceeds, for example, 12 mph over ANY posted speed limit on any road. Real-time alerts can be sent to your email or phone, or you may want to simply have a daily or weekly speeding report sent to you showing all violations.
Use these alerts and reports to coach your drivers, and watch your fuel costs shrink!
Easy Fleet GPS Tracking works for more than just fleets of vehicles. Easy Fleet GPS’s solution also has options for your assets – trailers and equipment.
