[Powerfleet’s GPS portal] is probably one of the easier ones to manage. But, it’s the people who make the company, in addition to a quality product. Our goal is to keep trucks on the road with quality equipment and not on the side of the road getting repaired. Powerfleet helps us do that.
We have been working with Powerfleet since 2016 and consider them a critical partner. We like where they are going regarding a unified IoT perspective and look forward to using our data to drive deeper insights into our business.
Due to strong consumer feedback and efficiency we’ve seen in our workflow, we are dedicating additional resources to expand our Avis QuickPass offering. For those unfamiliar with this product, it enables our preferred customers upon arrival to select from a choice of vehicles on their phone, proceed directly to their car, and then utilize a unique QR code to exit via our automated Express Exit for a completely contactless experience.
Two years ago, we could buy a dry van trailer for $30,000 – today, they are $50,000. Some receivers use our trailers as an extension of their warehouse. One of our customers has 20-25 of our trailers at any given time. Powerfleet’s solution has allowed me to see when a trailer has been dropped for more than seven to ten days. Powerfleet’s solution lets us see where our trailers are at any time and enables better communication with our customers because we are armed with accurate data to hold them accountable.
This solution has more than helped cut costs and increase productivity and safety. The data and reports we receive provides our team with more knowledge than we ever knew possible.
For us, time was of the essence as we were on the verge of losing visibility on our newly acquired equipment when we initiated collaboration with Powerfleet. What we find impressive is Powerfleet’s ability to have implemented everything we wanted within a tight deadline, be it providing connectivity or the system reprogramming. This saved us a lot of trouble with potential idling of our equipment.
Powerfleet’s solutions gave us the tools we needed to run the most efficient—and profitable—trailer fleet. From finding lost trailers and right-sizing our trailer pools to reducing new trailer buys, our tracking system has added over $1 million to our bottom line.
Relying on conventional methods, such as safety trainings and conversations, isn’t enough. Working with Powerfleet allows us to elevate our safety standards, reduce costs, increase longevity of our vehicles, and help the environment with better fuel consumption.
Powerfleet’s intelligent solution complements our approach to offering the highest quality of work to our customers and helps our employees efficiently and safely do their job.
