Hubbard has been using Fleetwatcher's Materials Management Solution for four years and Dispatch Specialist Terry Hermsen of the Jacksonville Division, has been thrilled with the results. "We have changed the culture of the truck drivers with our use of Fleetwatcher through running reports with start times and it has improved our on-time and call-outs by 100%."
What is their favorite feature? "One of my favorite features is the Load Cycle Analysis Report. I can see everything I need with a quick glance of that report, it let’s me know who is on the job, if they were on time, and if the drivers stay too long at a gas station. We have been able to incorporate us back billing the owners for work not performed. I have all the foreman, superintendents, and supporting personnel on the mobile app. It's a great way to keep track of the drivers anywhere you are.
How is the support? "Fleetwatcher's support group is fantastic. If there is ever any questions. I get the answer immediately. They are on top of their customer’s needs. I had a problem with running one of the new reports. I called Nik, our CS rep and he stopped doing whatever he was doing and immediately solved my issue. I have been using Fleetwatcher for a year now and find it easy to use and keeps all the drivers honest."
