Waste management is a crucial and critical service for everyone, the public and businesses included. When garbage goes uncollected, not only is it visually unpleasant, but it can have serious health consequences as well.
If you are in the waste management industry, you are providing a vital service. Because of this, you need to do whatever you can to make sure that your business runs as efficiently as possible.
GPS Fleet Management Software for Waste Management
More and more waste management companies are turning to GPS tracking software to improve their services. With the installation of GPS tracking devices onto all of their trucks, fleet managers are able to keep a watchful eye on their entire fleet of vehicles. They are able to see in real time where each of their vehicles is located while out on its route. With this information and a detailed outline of each course taken, you are then able to make sure that each driver is taking the most efficient route possible.
Plus, with RASTRAC's Map Marker Plug-in, you can view a complete, color-coded map while each truck is running its collection route. This will show a fleet manager which routes have not yet been collected, and change colors as the collection is completed.
Manage Disputes with Your Customers
With RASTRAC, you have the option to receive an update every time the garbage truck's arm is activated to collect a bin. With this information, if a customer ever contacts customer service to say that their trash was not collected, you will have the data readily available as to when that truck passed by the address and if the collection was completed. If it is determined that the customer did not have their bin on the curb at the appropriate time, you can then save the expense and time to send a truck out again to perform only one collection.
Managing Safety with GPS Tracking Technology
Garbage trucks are very large vehicles. While they are out on the road, you want to make sure that your drivers are safe and efficient while running their routes. With the installation of GPS tracking devices on your fleet, a manager will be able to instantly receive an automated alert via text message or e-mail when a driver is behaving recklessly. These alerts can be set for speeding, excessive idling, hard braking and acceleration, or if they are veering off a predetermined route. This can greatly reduce fuel waste as well.
Regardless of the size of your fleet, GPS fleet tracking software is a vital tool for making sure your operation runs as smoothly as possible. Contact us today to receive a free demonstration and see how RASTRAC can benefit your business.
