GPS tracking is changing how the pest control industry operates. With staff having worked in the pest control industry we can communicate how utilizing vehicle tracking brings many advantages to pest control operators of all sizes. GPS tracking helps PCO's dispatch sales reps to the next swarm call more efficiently, highlights inefficient routing, slows speeding with an in vehicle buzzer, stop personal activities on company time and verifies time spent conducting annual termite inspections. Vehicle tracking helps monitor your two most expensive assets; your people and your fleet. Passive tracking systems offer a one-time investment for the majority of the fleet where live systems can be installed on specific vehicle as needed to minimize monthly service fees.
GPS tracking systems can record activities that are part of any 12 volt system on the vehicle through a PTO. For example, monitoring PTO activity provides management insight on how long a pump was running or if seatbelts are being worn. In the pest control industry monitoring spray rigs is extremely valuable when it comes to controling expenses, customer service, termite treatment, application rates and legal issues.
GPS TRACKING BENEFITS TO THE PEST CONTROL INDUSTRY:
Seldom are all calls prescheduled or the day goes according to plan. With live GPS systems dispatchers can see the fleets position and are able to make better dispatching decisions than prior to GPS. Dispatchers can simply task the closest technician or sales person knowing their location. This improved efficiency often leads to 2-4 additional service calls per week and significantly increases production!
Commercial Pest Control operators generally don't need to dispatch but benefit significantly by the other insights GPS systems provide. These benefits also apply to residential Pest Control operators.
Real-time fleet tracking technology makes 95% of techs day visible to management. Passive GPS tracking provides the same information but downloads at the end of the day when the vehicle returns to the office. Passive GPS systems provide excellent insight but without the monthly service fees of real-time GPS systems. Pest Control GPS offers both types of tracking systems and has a unique GPS system that allows live tracking and passive GPS tracking units in the same fleet to minimize monthly service fees.
