Reviews from Teletrac's GPS Fleet Tracking Customers
Builders FirstSource Reviews Teletrac's Fleet Management System
"Our fleet logs an average of over 4,000,000 miles per month, therefore fuel consumption is watched very closely and after installing Fleet Director, engine idling times have dropped significantly. By knowing each truck’s location and status in real time, we are making more deliveries per day with the same or fewer numbers of trucks. We no longer criss-cross routes. Out of route miles have been virtually eliminated.”

"We get more than 2,000 AAA calls a month, and response time has become much quicker since we started using Teletrac five years ago. AAA requires that tow trucks respond within 30minutes or less, and Ted and Al's Towing hits that 98% of the time. Thanks to Teletrac."
— Ralph Hoover, Fleet Manager, Ted and Al's Towing

“Teletrac is a security feature for our company. The product makes managing the business a little easier. Fortunately we have never had a vehicle stolen but Teletrac provides the peace of mind of knowing where our vehicles are at all times.”
— Eddie Garcia, Operations Manager, CD Lyon Construction Inc.
Birnie Bus Service Inc.
"We used to have about 30-40 hard braking incidents a day. And now we probably have maybe 5 or 6 a day. We also use mileage report to update our fuel records. We use the detailed stops report to compare suggested routes against the actual route. We monitor idle times and fuel mileage. We also monitor the location of buses during trips to assure they are on track and running on time. This is very helpful on weekends when we have buses out and the customer calls and asks for the status of a bus."
— Harvey Hawkins, Fleet Supervisor, Birnie Bus Service Inc.
"Initially, we had suspicions about vehicle misuse. We have 70 vehicles on the road and had no way to track them. The more we heard about Teletrac, the more we liked what we were hearing. That was about 8 years ago, it's been phenomenal. It’s been a complete return on investment. The unit is outstanding. We just upgraded to safety analytics and we're looking forward to using it to help our safe driving program."
— Fred Wagner, President, Poolman Inc.

“We have been with Teletrac for about three years. We changed providers because our previous system was not offering an HOS solution and Teletrac could fill that void. Teletrac has improved communications within the company significantly. All of our internal messaging is conducted through Teletrac—it’s convenient, useful and fast. We track our trailers quite a bit—we even have several customers that require us to track our vehicles every two hours and provide them with updates. Teletrac makes sure that these “hot and sensitive” deliveries are on route and on time. I have recommended Teletrac to many people—the product has worked well for our company."
—Rob Koch, VP of Operations, AN Webber

“We’ve been hauling mail exclusively for the U.S. Postal Service for more than 25 years. A USPS mandate required GPS on all carrier trucks within 60 days to get compliant. We had GPS on our trucks before with little success. We selected Teletrac because they were endorsed by the Postal Service and had been in business a long time. Their commitment, service and support is unbelievable. Teletrac saved our business by getting us compliant quickly!”

“Fleet Director prevented the theft of $150,000 worth of equipment and materials by notifying me that a truck was started up after the programmed cutoff time.

It’s too valuable not to have.”
