I have 2 thoughts on GPS since I mentioned it in another thread. I think I need both the cheap and the expensive next level of GPS instead of my current system of just printing driving directions from the shop. The cheap upgrade is getting 3 portable GPS units from Sam's, they are 139 or so and one of my guys aleady uses his personal one in the work truck. So since m=one of my guys is already more advanced than me, and nearly everyone says theis is too cheap to not do, then I figure this. If the 139 buck GPS keeps 2 of my guys from getting lost once per year and saves them even an hour of drive around lost time, it has paid for itself in extra Christmas revenue. The expensive level of GPS is getting the tracker that logs where the guys are every 10 seconds and times how long they are idle at each location. Talk about exact drive, speed, route, install and lunch times. You would know the exact time that each truck left each day. how long it stopped to buy ciggarettes and coke in the morning. etc. These cost about 400 bucks to buy and 40-100 bucks to monitor each month and require yearly contracts AND require me to hire someone to look at it and write in the correct info on the customer files and let me know when guys are abusing the freedom of having a work truck. I'm just not sure that the money spent in my case is worth the correct info. if I could only have one tracker from Sept 15-Oct. 15, then 2, then 3 on Nov 1, etc, and then not pay for the service from Feb 1 to Sept 15, then start back up, I would consider buying the equipment and then hiring someone to check it daily during Christmas season. I know there are passive GPS out there that kind of do the same thing, but again, need someone to check them. I have no time. what do you guys think?
