GPS Tracking and Loss Prevention


GPS software HVAC

The HVAC industry has been growing by leaps and bounds, but not without its challenges. Running an HVAC company requires dedication and commitment, along with training and expertise. The owners of such companies much wear many hats and perform many tasks, from keeping track of the trucks on the road to fielding calls from happy (and unhappy) customers.

That is why so many HVAC company owners have been installing GPS tracking systems and seeing the benefits firsthand.

One of the biggest benefits of GPS tracking software for the HVAC industry is the ability to manage an entire fleet and an entire workforce from afar -without having to go out on jobs or become a micromanager. The ability to manage a workforce and vehicle fleet remotely frees the owners and managers up for more important tasks and allows them to serve the customer better.

In fact, GPS tracking software can actually improve customer service, so it may be able to help with disgruntled customers. If a truck is late getting to a job, the owner can tell exactly where it is and reassure the customer that help is on the way.

In addition to all these benefits, GPS tracking software can help in another important way. Theft is always a problem for owners of HVAC equipment – all that expensive equipment and valuable materials are tempting targets for thieves, especially when the trucks are parked and unattended.

Installing GPS tracking technology in each truck makes it easier for the police to track a stolen vehicle and recover the expensive tools and materials. This benefit alone could more than pay for the cost of installing the tracking technology and software.

With so many benefits, it is easy to see why so many HVAC company owners are upgrading their fleets with GPS tracking technology and software. From improved security and better time management to superior customer service and reporting capabilities, GPS software provides a number of valuable benefits to the HVAC industry.


GPS trackign recycling bins

You’ve probably seen them in your own community…large metal bins for dropping off clothing donations.  As it turns out, not even  donations given in good will are exempt from those who rummage through  clothing bins in hopes of reselling or keeping the goods.  One Baltimore company, that originally thought donations were down,  has successfully retrieved stolen goods, and led authorities to recycled clothing thieves with the help of GPS tracking software— and in the process found out that donations weren’t down after all.   By placing GPS tracking devices in various clothing items–in pockets, liners, etc., and using GPS tracking software, the company has successfully  retrieved several batches of stolen clothing.  Company officials use geofencing, a feature of the tracking software to receive cell phone alerts whenever one of their GPS tracking devices leaves the immediate area of the clothing collection bins.   The clothing collected by the company is bailed and then shipped to third world countries.

LandLine Magazine recently reported that a covert GPS tracking device allowed police in Florida to track and recover a tractor trailer containing clothing items.  The trailer was stolen as it sat unattended in a truck stop parking lot.   The retail shipment, abandoned by the thieves suspected to be monitoring police traffic,  was tracked to a location only 30 miles from where it was stolen.  According to the article, Florida has the highest percentage of cargo theft, clothing theft adds up to more than $300,000 per year, and  approximately 85% of thefts occur due to rigs left running and unattended by their drivers.

Unmanaged loss prevention can take a big bite out of your business profits.  One of the most effective tools business owners are using today to prevent loss and deter thieves is GPS tracking systems.  Along with GPS tracking software, these devices can help you get a grasp on the profits you could be missing out on.

Prevent Theft with a GPS Tracking System

GPS tracking systems provide a powerful deterrent for both theft and the misuse of company assets and time.  When staff members are aware of GPS trackers deployed on your vehicles or heavy equipment it greatly reduces temptation.  For example, an employee who knows that his routes of travel are being tracked is far less likely to use a company vehicle for personal travel.

Recover Stolen Assets

If you happen to be the victim of theft, GPS tracking devices installed on your corporate assets can assist authorities in recovering the stolen asset and avoiding a loss.  With GPS tracking software, the location of the stolen item will be pinpointed, allowing authorities to reach it faster, and reducing the likelihood of damage.

Manage Payroll Costs

Payroll can be one of the most daunting costs for any business. If your business needs to trim the fat from overtime or other hourly wages, a GPS tracker and GPS tracking software may be just the tool you need.  For example, staff members who are aware that there time and movements are tracked using GPS tracking software, are less likely to claim time that wasn’t actually worked.  Plus, GPS tracking systems can reduce your overall payroll costs by helping you find more efficient ways of doing business, such as using less fuel, correcting inefficiencies in routes of travel and dispatching.

In a world where  cutting business costs is necessary to remain afloat, the last thing any business needs is lost profits through inflated payroll costs, or the theft or misuse of company assets.  Consider GPS tracking for business to manage loss prevention.
