Jeffrey Allison, IT Administrator for Estes Heating & Air Conditioning, said, “The tight integration between the SAWIN application and the NexTraq platform made our dispatchers’
Additionally, the dispatchers found NexTraq’s reporting functionality to be the most beneficial as they hold employees accountable to their daily schedules. Allison cites fuel savings and finding the closest vehicle to a location as added benefits.
The ability to know where the vehicles are at all times has increased driver productivity by 13 percent. Allison says, “They are able to take care of our customers more efficiently, often taking another service call not on their daily schedule. The benefits are two-fold: we help more customers and they get home faster at the end of their work day.”
An added benefit? Estes can locate stolen vehicles before the police do. They were able to recover more than $30,000 of equipment because they could track the vehicle to its exact location.
Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq said, “Enabling people with tools to do their job better and more efficiently is what the NexTraq is all about. Our Web Services offering enables integration of service companies’ fleet data with third party applications such as accounting and billing, route optimization and mobile workforce management.”
As one of the top 5 percent of all heating and air contractors in the country, it’s easy to see that Estes will experience even greater success and growth in the future. Allison concludes, “We have a long-term relationship with NexTraq and it’s a win-win partnership.”
