GPS Tracking Keeps Limo Company Rolling Smoothly |


AA Transportation Uses Track What Matters to Deliver A-Plus Service

2ndescalade1AA Transportation,based in Shrewsbury,Massachusetts,offers limousine service as well as school bus and other transportation services to the Boston area. Before it introduced GPS tracking into its vehicles,however,billing and scheduling issues did not always make for an easy ride.

According to limousine manager,John Pond,“We were hearing discrepancies between what our employees reported and clients’ claims. An employee would say he got there at the appointed time,while the client would claim that the employee was late. So we were having arguments over billing and over payroll.” Installing GPS tracking in AA’s vehicles resolved the problem almost immediately:“All those arguments go away when you can produce a report that shows employee’s and/or customers’ exact arrival and departure times.”

Pond was amused at how just the knowledge of the GPS system’s existence changed everyone’s tune. “We didn’t tell the drivers about the units for about two weeks – but the minute we did,it was amazing how quickly their pay sheets came into line.” In many cases,AA can defuse a customer dispute simply by noting the presence of GPS tracking in the vehicles and offering to send them a detailed trip report.

Track What Matters’ GPS tracking helps resolve other issues as well. “We faced an audit from IFTA over gasoline taxes,” Pond recalls,“but it turned out that the IFTA people will accept reports from the GPS units as proof of mileage.” The software’s ability to generate such useful reports led to AA installing GPS units in out-of-state vehicles entirely for that purpose.

In addition to equipping all of its limos with GPS units,AA is in the process of adding GPS to its buses and other vehicles. Says Pond,“It’s a huge tool for helping us with our billing and documentation processes.”
