One of Clauser Tree Care’s clients had a big problem. Namely, an enormous log was sitting in her Philadelphia-area yard. Clauser had taken down the tree earlier in the day, but the size of the log meant a different truck needed to be dispatched to take it away. Hoping to get it taken care of before the weekend, she called Clauser in the late afternoon to see what could be done.
Two of the largest variable costs any fleet manager has to deal with are fuel and maintenance costs. One of the most effective ways to get a handle on those costs is to use a sophisticated GPS-based fleet management tool to monitor them in real-time.
The best field service management tools pull double duty. They make it possible for managers and dispatchers to “see” all trucks at a glance for better decision-making. And they also make drivers’ on-road experiences safer and more efficient.
GPS Trackit’s field service management tools accomplish these tasks with three essential features, among others: artificial intelligence-powered in-cabin alerting, two-way messaging between driver and base, and fleet-wide driver scorecards.
It wasn’t so many years ago that a phone was just a phone—not a smartphone with everything from a high-definition camera to internet access and social media packed into it. You can say the same thing about video cameras installed in fleet vehicles. A dashcam can be just that—a video camera installed in a truck—or it can be much more.
Dashcams with AI are “smart cameras,” and they can help fleets avoid accidents and save thousands of dollars in repair costs, legal bills, and insurance premiums. Here’s how they work.
Whether you’re managing six trucks or 60, a simple update to your in-vehicle technology can produce a positive return on investment in less than 30 days. Dashcams for fleet service businesses make good financial sense. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can bank that savings potential.
For most field service businesses, growth is more complicated than simply deciding to allocate more resources for crews and vehicles. Adding clients and increasing revenue has to first come from the assets you already have in place.
That’s where a good field service management business comes in.
If it feels like inflation has your field service business squeezed in a vice, you aren’t alone. With inflation projected to be nearly more than 6 percent this year and significantly higher than average in 2023, everything you’re using to send your crews into the field costs more—from fuel to truck maintenance materials to wages themselves. You can’t control the macro factors driving inflation higher, but you can take away some of the pain cost increases cause with help from field service management technology.
With the complexities that come with running a modern fleet, managers need the best tools at their disposal.

Here are five ways you can be a successful fleet manager:
