Winning is the only option with a GPS Tracking System
Experience all a GPS based vehicle tracking system has to offer. A recurring statement we hear from our clients is “I wish I would have put the system in sooner”
With our GPS based vehicle tracking system, our clients see an immediate increase in productivity, a reduction in fuel costs, overtime, and vehicle maintenance. Controlling the vehicle speed alone can reduce maintenance costs by as much as 30%. With complete accountability from a GPS tracking device, your vehicles will increase the number of stops, deliveries & service calls made every day.
A thief in the night can and will steal your vehicle-stop it before it happens with a GPS car tracking system. A small expense for a GPS system is better than a large expense for a missing or destroyed vehicle! Relieve your car pain before it starts.
Your Return on a GPS Tracking Investment is usually under 6 Months Our average GPS client sees a productivity and savings increase of between $200 and $400 a month per vehicle. The extra money and time saved with a GPS system in the first year alone are enough to purchase an entire system 3 times over ! These savings are thanks to the information that our innovative technology has to offer.
Please review our “Fast Facts on Speeding and Idling” and you will understand so much more about the importance of a GPS car tracking system. If you still have questions concerning a GPS car system, please feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer all of your GPS questions. Return on investment is usually under 6 months.
FAST FACTS ON SPEEDING/IDLING:
Information released from studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratories on the effects of speed and idling is extremely important to fleet owners and operators of commercial trucks. Below are some of the findings:
EFFECT ON ENGINE:
Careful analysis of the road experience indicates the ideal speed for the average truck is 50-55mph, the power required to increase speed multiplies dramatically:
- 73% more horsepower to cruise at 60 mph
- 159% more horsepower to cruise at 70 mph
EFFECT ON FUEL COST:
Research indicated that each mile per hour above 50 mph increases fuel consumption by 1 .5 percent. A truck, which averages 8 mpg at 50 mph, will average 6.8 mpg at 60 mph.
EFFECT ON TIRES:
Heat is the number one enemy of tires. Sustained speeds raise tire temperatures above the critical level causing strength and wear properties to deteriorate rapidly. Tire wear will almost double at road speeds of 70 mph or greater.
EFFECT ON MAINTENANCE COST:
Gears, bearings, clutches, suspension and drive trains all wear much faster at higher speeds. Increasing speed from 50 mph to 60 mph increases maintenance cost by 38%. Increasing the speed to 70 mph increases the cost by 80%.
EFFECT ON IDLING:
Idling causes twice as much damage as driving. One hour’s idling is equivalent to between 80 and 120 minutes of driving time. The resulting loss of fuel economy from excessive idling can add up to 800 gallons of fuel annually for the average truck.
EFFECT ON ACCIDENTS:
Approximate stopping distances, including reaction time for the average person (2 axle trucks) are listed below:
- @ 50 mph – 275 feet (.92 football fields)
- @ 60 mph – 375 feet (1.25 football fields)
- @ 70 mph – 500 feet (1.67 football fields)
At 70 mph, stopping distance is 63% greater than at 50 mph. Even in daylight, higher speeds will significantly increase accident probabilities.
