When I opened the box, I noticed that the device was on the Verizon network. This is a plus since a lot of our delivery drivers go to some remote areas that their cell phones don't work at. However so far the device has worked even in the far areas such as Fort Bragg.
We rent a lot of trucks and so the ODB connector is useful. So far, in any truck we have rented (or in our own trucks) we can just plug in the device and go.
I have set up a bunch of geofences for various locations. So far these have worked good and the notifications help me track the day's progress.
One of the main reasons to get the device was to monitor and control expenses. Whereas before we could only know for sure the entire job time (transit + deliveries), and only know how long a team member took at a job site based on their account of the day. Now we can see accurate times for each delivery, the route the drivers took, and the traffic involved. Now I can better understand where we can improve to save money or some areas we need to increase prices we charge our clients.
For our drivers, We no longer have to call them throughout the day when clients are wondering how long till they get to their home. Now we can just look on the computer and see where the driver is and give the client an accurate estimate. In addition, now I can see bad traffic areas and attempt to route them around it, or at least when the driver is taking too long due to heavy traffic I don't have to bust their balls because they were too slow. So even our drivers like it. (and we do not hide the fact we are monitoring them).
"Very good hardware price. Other systems had a much higher hardware price which is a deterrent especially because we do not know how well they work. Getting your system was low risk even if it could have turned out not to be working well. But as a matter of fact it does work very well! The separate antenna was also a key item as it simplifies the installation. (Gives more flexibility to find power and good antenna location). The monthly cost is also excellent and the reporting rate was exactly what I need. I did not want to pay more for a higher reporting rate that I do not need." - Terry Gill , GA
