Vehicle tracking and fleet management from Remote Dynamics.

Remote Dynamics : 29 February, 2008  (New Product)
Asset tracking for vehicles and special equipment enables companies to manage fleets and control expenditure.
Is equipment oil being changed too late (or too frequently)? Are certain employees consistently breaking speed limits? Are power generators being used inefficiently? Which vehicles are burning excess fuel idling each day? Which drivers are taking the "long way round" on delivery routes? Are weather conditions making it too dangerous to operate construction hoists and tower cranes?

"As the owner of a small business, if you do not know the answers to these questions, it's likely to be hurting your bottom line," says Gary Hallgren, Chief Executive Officer of Remote Dynamics, a Texas-based asset tracking and fleet management company. Remote Dynamics provides fleet managers and equipment rental businesses with the hardware and software tools necessary to track, locate, and monitor their assets.

Small businesses hit especially hard by recent economic realities include industries such as trucking, construction, landscaping, and equipment rental companies. Hallgren notes that as fuel prices continue to rise and the country leans toward a recession, companies are looking for ways to lower fuel costs, decrease operating expenses, and more efficiently manage their payroll.

From trucking fleets to tower cranes, bulldozers to construction elevators, riding lawnmowers to lighted signs, Remote Dynamics products combine Global Positioning System (GPS) and wireless technologies to provide businesses with ways to track and assess vehicle and equipment usage from any location, allowing businesses to save money and generate more revenue.

The technology allows users to determine what items are tracked and how alerts are managed (eg, an e-mail, page, or cell phone message when a vehicle is speeding or due for servicing). It also offers predictive analysis that contributes to better fleet maintenance scheduling. This information can be seamlessly integrated with back office systems, such as inventory, timesheets, scheduling, and asset management.

"All this helps ensure that the right data gets to the right people at the right time, boosting employee efficiency, reducing fuel costs, curbing unauthorised wages and overtime payments, and increasing profitability," says Hallgren. "Integrating any technology into your business may seem intimidating, but it is imperative to running your company smoothly. The more information you have about your company's assets, and the more accurate that information is, the more efficiently your business will run. And that's good news for you and your customers."
