Earthwave Technologies Welcomes New Customer, Gallagher Asphalt

Earthwave Technologies would like to recognize and thank our new customer, Gallagher Asphalt, for selecting Fleetwatcher as their construction telematics solution to help them manage their equipment, projects, and bottom-line objectives for 2015 and beyond.

“We spent a lot of time over the past few years looking at telematics solutions to help us become more efficient on our material trucking operation but couldn’t find one that impressed us enough to make the investment for implementing this technology” says Trucking Manager, Justin Jonkman.

“Fleetwatcher was the first system we found with a solution that was built to give the type of information we could easily use to analyze our operations on a daily basis” said Jim Trost, VP of Operations. Trost explains, “We confirmed that observation by visiting a current “Peer Group” paving company that has been using Fleetwatcher for about a year.”

“The ‘ramp up’ time to get the system up and running and providing benefits has been very quick”, says Jonkman. "Also, in the short period of time since we implemented Fleetwatcher, we’ve already identified several additional operational benefits we didn’t anticipate when we justified the system."

“We are expecting and believing that Fleetwatcher will help us manage our trucking business to a low cost position, helping our overall paving operation as we move forward in a highly competitive market” says Trost.

For further information on Earthwave Technologies' Fleetwatcher and the benefits it can deliver to fleets both on-road and off, please contact Larry Baker at 317-218-6102 or email to
