When I first decided to write about Global Positioning Location Systems for your company vehicles(whether it be one vehicle or a hundred), I had planned to write about facts and figures and statistics and all sorts of dry information that I was going to ask you to read and digest.
Then I remembered that the best way to reach someone was to tell a story. Give business owners the numbers at the end of the day, but to really get their attention, let people know that you understand their everyday business struggles. That way, you aren’t trying to sell them something, but you are helping them with that all important bottom line profitability calculation. That is something all good business owners understand, or if they don’t, they certainly will not be business owners for long.
So this is a very simple story.
Moore Security Solutions decided to sell GPS Fleet location Systems five years ago because it seemed a natural fit. We loved the idea and technology, and it was an industry that was growing rapidly. Of course, all other businesses in Arizona needed this exciting new cost management tool , not Moore Security Solutions. Our employees were completely trustworthy. I certainly didn’t want to cause any friction with any of our employees by acting like “Big Brother.” And anyway, we just had a few vehicles, so would that really make it cost effective for us?
Well, it didn’t take us long to realize how wrong we were on all counts. We installed the Location System Devices on our own vehicles for ‘Demonstration Purposes” only. They weren’t meant for companies like ours, but we could demonstrate to other companies how valuable the technology would be for their company.
After using the equipment for just a couple of days, it was amazing how much information came out of this system. Not only could we track multiple layers of statistics and numbers that gave us complete operational control of what was going on with our employees and vehicles, but we could see where our vehicles and employees were in real time and make up to the minute decisions about where to send our them based on current information. We could create a report with all of this valuable information that we could use to decrease our gas use, increase employee productivity, decrease “wear and tear” on our vehicles, and overall manage a vital part of business that we had figured was basically unknowable.
It has been quite a revelation. And as a added bonus, it has become much easier to convince other business owners to purchase and use this valuable tool because we have seen first hand how wonderful this product is to OUR Bottom Line Profitability.
One other thing; Moore Security Solutions has discovered that once a business owner signs up for the service, very rarely do they cancel it . It’s just to valuable to them.
We have assembled all of the statistics and numbers and information for you. We just love having this tool in our profitability tool box and you will too.
