When each truck stops at the customers house they hit a "start" button and a timer starts for their time they are given to spend at that house. When the job is complete they hit "finish" and add any notes. As soon as they hit finish it automatically starts their GPS directions for the next clients house and the game starts all over.
Any truck that has gone idle for to long or off the grid will alert their manager via text.
I don't know the name of the service but I know they have spent over 100K to integrate this service and IPADS.
Yes. With the teletrac fleet management software we're using, we gauge these same metrics: idle time, ignition on/off, timecarding, fuel usage, and stationary time, when vehicle arrives and leaves a job site, or when they leave a geo zone etc. We've been very happy with the results so far and the return on investment. If you need a contact referral let me know as I think they have a referral program
