Verizon Connect Services
Verizon Connect specialist vehicle tracking systems offer customers a range of services that are relevant to driver-based businesses like Corecut. Their vehicle tracking, integrated with Google Maps, enables accurate analysis of multiple routes taken on a given day. Moreover, it allows for the monitoring of driver behaviour, including aspects such as speed limit violations. Other services include the creation of thresholds for specific aspects of driver behaviour, such as maximum limits for number of hours worked, distance driven and attainable speeds.
Alerts can be set for any driver breaking these thresholds, allowing employers to compare driver performance and take appropriate measures. Verizon Connect also provide customers with the means to oversee fuel usage, through the integration of fuel cards with Verizon Connect GPS tracking systems. This enables customers to review individual driver fuel usage and spend, identify inefficient fuel usage, and demonstrate any unauthorised fuel purchases.
Benefits to Corecut
Having employed the services of Verizon Connect for the management of their fleet, Corecut has subsequently identified numerous benefits, particularly with regard to overall fleet productivity and driver efficiency. The resulting ability to identify the nearest vehicle in their fleet to a specific job site, together with Verizon Connect Google Maps integrated GPS tracking, has enabled drivers to attend to jobs at a much faster rate than previously, which has, in turn, resulted in increased productivity. Corecut’s efficiency has also seen improvements through Verizon Connect integration with the Garmin navigation units used by the company. This integration has provided Corecut with the ability to send messages detailing job instructions and deadlines to all drivers within their fleet.
The result of this messaging system has been the reduction in driver confusion as to the location of jobs and the specified time of arrival as well as Corecut can now being able to identify when a job has been completed, allowing them to easily forward that driver onto the next client. In addition, Corecut has identified improvements in time management as a result of using Verizon Connect services. The ability to accurately track individual drivers in their fleet has enabled them to identify wasteful practices, such as extended work breaks and late arrivals/departures, allowing action to be taken to prevent similar occurrences in the future.
Even Corecut’s customer service has seen significant improvements thanks to the implementation of the Verizon Connect system. For example, the ability to identify late arrivals or departures at jobs now enables Corecut to settle any potential customer queries with regard to such matters effectively, simply by reviewing specific drivers’ operational histories for specific dates. As a result, Corecut’s reputation in this area has steadily risen.
