Tracking Surveys

What are the surveys saying?

A study done in 2009 by the Aberdeen Group in Boston found that responding US firms have seen the following improvements:

  • 25% reduction in idle time
  • 32% increase in fleet utilization
  • 22% decrease in Fuel cost
  • 31% drop in daily mileage
  • 23% increase in workforce productivity

The Aberdeen Group repeated the survey in 2012 and found similar results. These results are indicative of the cost containment pressures that companies face and the benefits they are able to achieve with the use of tracking

Case Study

Company Saves 1,100 gallons of Fuel 2 Weeks after Installation

Most clients start seeing positive results from using GPS tracking & fleet management system within 30 days.

Prior to implementation, Keil Southworth of Albertina Kerr Centers in Portland Oregon was unsure whether the GPS tracking system would really help him to cut costs. So he decided to start with a trial unit to evaluate the product. He quickly realized how valuable and useful the system would be for his fleet. Once the trial period was over, Keil purchased 88 tracking devices for his entire fleet.

According to Keil: “Our fuel usage dropped by 1,100 gallons the first two weeks after installing the GPS tracking units. The following two weeks our usage remained at 700 gallons under our average.”  The fuel savings is typical of fleets that implement GPS fleet management systems. The Aberdeen Group surveyed users of GPS fleet management systems and found that they were able to reduce fuel costs by an average of 13.2 percent.
