NexTraq, a provider of GPS fleet tracking and vehicle management solutions, announces that fleet management technology has proven benefits for the pest control industry. With the high demand for pest control workers, the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform and reporting and alerts functionality can help pest control businesses improve driver productivity and increase service revenue.

GPS fleet tracking enables PMPs to manage their fleet operations even in a down economy by helping alleviate their operational costs and increasing their service revenue—ultimately improving their bottom line.  

“Through reporting and alerts functionality within the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform, businesses can access their fleet activity in real-time to identify areas of strength and weakness within their operations,” said Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq. “Using the information generated by the reports, pest control businesses can make strategic decisions about their operations and fleet management practices to help drive their business forward.”

By integrating the reporting and alerts functionality into fleet processes, pest control businesses have the ability to improve all areas of their fleet operations. With the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform, pest control managers can generate reports such as the Start/Stop Report and Begin/End Day Report to help reduce operational costs and increase productivity.

In addition, pest control businesses can utilize the Idle Report and Speed Alert capabilities to monitor and modify fleet fuel costs and driver behavior while improving driver safety. By tracking their fleets, NexTraq customers have experienced a decrease in fuel, labor and insurance costs.

In a recent customer satisfaction survey, results revealed that 60 percent of NexTraq customers cited increased fleet productivity as the most important impact on their fleet operations while 68 percent cited driver behavior modification as the number one benefit of the NexTraq system.
