WANT to make your van operation sparkle?
Total Cleaning – as you would expect – know how to shine up their customers, but the van operation was looking…well, a little dusty.
ForeTrack’s online van tracking starts from £15 a month
Total Cleaning decided it needed to take is van operation to the cleaners. It wanted to reduce its transport costs and improve customer service.
So the commercial and domestic carpet, curtain and upholstery cleaning firm, which runs 12 vans throughout the south of England, turned to Southampton-based vehicle tracking company ForeTrack to equip its vehicles with a ForeTrack GPS tracking system to keep track of its cleaning technicians on route to domestic and commercial properties.
The system uses GPS satellite tracking and GPRS mobile phone technology to relay information live to a computer allowing Total Cleaning South’s directors to view the precise location of each vehicle, monitor average speed, journey length and time, distance travelled and routes taken.
This enables them to to make the best use of their locations, directing drivers to avoid traffic or change appointments.
According to the company, the system has made the process of running its van fleet far smoother.
Total Cleaning Company South director Tracey Russell told Business Vans: “We implemented the ForeTrack GPS tracking system to help us manage our team more effectively. The web-based software is an integral part of our business enabling us to look online and see where our technicians are and how far they are from their appointments so we can update our customers on timescales.”
The ForeTrack GPS tracking system starts from £15 a month.
