Geotab also benefited Richelieu in unexpected ways, Chenier points out. Certain features such as the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) calculation, speed warnings and customer zoning were additional bonuses that he wasn’t anticipating, but have helped the company interact with clients better. By creating zones for each customer, Richelieu is able to quicken its response time from one place to another. Vehicle speed warnings also make drivers more aware of their driving — and customers appreciate that awareness.
“Not only are we able to track drivers at all times, but with improved stop-time information, we also are able to increase our amount of deliveries.” — Benoit Chenier, Fleet Manager
Chenier explains how simple it has been working with Geotab. With a smooth installation process and a local company who handles troubleshooting, he says problems are handled within a day or two, making issues easy to solve.
As for driver usage of the devices, Chenier says that the only difference for them is that now they have GPS fleet management to help guide them. And being able to communicate through the devices is extremely helpful as well.
He notes that Geotab gets the job done, provides peace of mind and overall savings that will benefit the company.
