We are small start-up trucking company. We used our capital to purchase 2 small trucks and started taking on a number of local deliveries. Our services ranged from removing rubble to delivering building supplies. We brainstormed to find ways on how to ensure we are getting maximum benefits from the trucks and drivers. Installing GPS and tracking systems into out trucks was too expensive and not within our budget. A friend recommended AllTracker and e have been impressed with the differences in productivity since installing the app.
Basically, all we had to do was purchase 2 mobile devices which the drivers sign out for each day. All it took was a quick installation of the app on each device. What did take time was setting the permission but in the end, this was well worth it.
With the AllTracker app installed on the devices, we were able to check on the locations of the trucks, the route they took and more. We managed to find out that, one our drivers was going off route to help his friend move some furniture. We were able to check all incoming, outgoing and even the deleted SMS messages which is how we found this out
When we originally installed the AllTracker app, we went with the Bronze package. This allowed us access to monitor the GPS locations of our trucks. Once we realized that the drivers were not operating the vehicles to their full potential we upgraded to the Gold package. The upgrade was easy and we only had to adjust permissions on our profile. We were able to hide AllTracker on the mobile devices so drivers, although they know about the app are not aware when we have actually accessed it.
With the AllTracker app, we have been able to turn the mobile devices into an extended pair of eyes. We have managed to take photos, monitor calls, and messages. Drivers are supposed to monitor the loading and off-loading of the trucks. With the AllTracker Gold package, we are able to take a screen shot of the device. This is how we found out that one driver spent a lot of time chatting on a social media app when he should have been paying attention to the loading of a truck. It is not about spying on the drivers. It is about ensuring that the money we spend to operate, our business is well spent and that we are getting maximum benefit out of our assets and resources.
Installation was easy. We had to download the AllTracker App to the devices and allocate the permissions of what can be accessed. To hide the AllTracker app we had to install AllTracker Anti-Thief, which means we have all the access without anyone knowing better. This is also great in the event the phone is ever stolen. The installation and setup were extremely easy. The AllTracker site provided a lot of information and step-by-step installation instructions.
