“When my vehicle was stolen I was able to lead the sheriffs department across a three county chase to where the vehicle was parked with a bunch of other stolen vehicles. Pretty cool!” – Paul Johnston

COMPANY: Landtech Field Services, LLC.

LOCATION: Lafayette, Louisiana

INDUSTRY: Service

FLEET SIZE: Small

Landtech Field Services, LLC., a business that manages land surveying field crews, was established in Lafayette, Louisiana in 2007.

LFS, LLC does business both locally and in surrounding states.

PROBLEM:

Being a small business, Mr. Johnston needed a reliable vehicle location monitoring system to protect his fleet from possible theft.

Doing business across multiple states, he also needed an anti-theft solution that would allow him to track his vehicles from where ever he was located at the moment.

This meant he needed to be able to track them by computer or by his smartphone.

SOLUTION:

Mr. Johnston has a small fleet which makes tracking them pretty simple.

The L2000 GPS asset monitoring and protection device provides an easy and cost effective solution to anti-theft protection for any sized fleet.

Some of the features making the unit beneficial to LFS, LLC include:

  • Real-Time Vehicle Location and Status
  • Historical Movements of Fleet Vehicles
  • Custom Landmarks and Geofences
  • Motion Sensors for Anti-Theft Protection

Establishing a GPS tracking solution allowing Mr. Johnston to create geofence locations has helped LFS, LLC. to track and locate their fleet regardless of where they are.

LFS, LLC is able to save time and money by protecting their fleet with real-time alerts and reports from a reliable GPS tracking unit.

RESULTS:

July 14, 2011, at 12:25 a.m., Mr. Johnston was in Texas when he received a text from his vehicle tracking software that his vehicle had left the geofence for his office.

Mr. Johnston was able to use the information from his GPS vehicle locator to contact his local sheriffs department to recover his vehicle.

I was in Texas working & I received the text messages that my vehicle had left the geofence of my office. I called the local police back home and explained what was happening. They transferred me to the local sheriff as the thief crossed parish lines.”
– Paul Johnston

At 1:45 a.m. police were able to recover his stolen vehicle parked behind a building among other stolen vehicles.

Using a vehicle monitoring system Mr. Johnston was able to save LFS, LLC time locating and retrieving their stolen property.

There was no money spent replacing a stolen vehicle, repairing any damages, or on any increases to insurance premiums.

Not to mention, using the Idle and Geofence reports with scheduled time alerts, Mr. Johnston improves driver accountability when field technicians use vehicles for personal use.
