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 fuel costs double where they were just a year ago, finding ways to reduce consumption and increase efficiency are no doubt at the top of every fleet manager’s to-do list. With sophisticated fleet management solutions like those from GPS Trackit, those jobs are easier than ever before.
