Safety is a top priority for any fleet business. We frequently discuss promoting a culture of safety on this blog, but sometimes it is easier said than done. Many fleet businesses invest in technology solutions to boost safety in their fleets but find little success. David McCauley, from Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning, teamed up with Azuga to find success on multiple levels. First, Azuga’s technology was worth the investment regarding safety and beyond. And secondly, Azuga’s support staff was there to ensure his needs were met every step of the way.
"Far and away I get everything I need for the best price out there." – David McCauley, North American Fleet Manager
How Does Fleet Tracking Technology Promote Safety?
When you think of GPS tracking technology, your first thought may not be driver safety as a use case. However, fleet tracking is so much more than finding vehicle locations. With Azuga’s state-of-the-art telematics software, you can receive alerts for driver behaviors like hard braking, fast acceleration, and aggressive cornering.
One of David’s challenges was developing a safety culture when he couldn’t monitor his drivers on the road. These alerts gave him the ability to track driver behavior in real time. His new fleet management software also allows him to generate reports that show behavior over extended periods. This reporting provides coaching opportunities for his drivers and makes them aware of areas where they can improve. As a result, Service Experts increased their drivers’ safety scores from 67 to 85.
Later in this article, we will link some blogs that further discuss how our fleet tracking software supports creating a safety culture for your fleet.
How Does Azuga Stand Out From The Rest?
Azuga’s technology prioritizes accuracy and ease of use. However, what stood out to David from Service Experts was his relationship with Azuga’s customer support staff. In the past, he felt that his telematics providers treated him like just another number, resulting in frustrating miscommunication and minimal action.
However, he has become a long-term customer of Azuga because our experts treat customers like family, offering friendly, 24-hour care. We are your partners when it comes to achieving your fleet goals. That may mean boosting your business’s safety, increasing efficiency, or saving money. It may even mean all three! No matter what you hope to accomplish, Azuga will be by your side every step of the way. We will assign you a dedicated customer success manager who helps with onboarding, training, introducing new products, and any questions throughout the process.
