Minimize Lost Revenue
Are your vehicles profit or cost centers? If your vehicles are critical to your ability to generate revenues, you might be losing money each and every day. Unfortunately, a common issue for many service businesses is with the improper use of company vehicles. Moonlighting or doing side jobs can be a serious drain on revenues that negatively impacts your company's name and reputation.
VTS 8000™’s history report features provide you with the ability to ensure that company vehicles are not used during off days or during certain hours.
Although uncommon, product theft can cost your business thousands of dollars. If a vehicle is transporting valuable goods, it may be necessary to ensure that no unnecessary stops are made in transit. The VTS 8000™ optional ALERT module provides you the flexibility of being notified of any unauthorized stops, by notifying you, each time the rear doors are opened, or if a vehicle leaves a designated area.
Improving Customer Satisfaction
A customer calls in wanting to know when to expect a delivery or requests an unscheduled stop. Alternatively you get a call from a customer who is complaining that the driver is late or never showed up. How successfully you handle these common situations dictates how happy your customers are and how likely they are to continue doing business with you and not with a competitor.
VTS 8000™’s Real-Time Tracking allows you to give your customers accurate information on when to expect a stop. If a customer calls in for an unscheduled stop, you can locate the nearest vehicle to their location. And, in the event a customer calls to complain about a missed stop, VTS 8000™’s Vehicle History feature shows you the route a vehicle took, enabling you to confirm or deny that a stop was missed. Accurate and detailed information means you are more prepared to service your customers’ requests. How much is that worth to your business?
The lack of solid information on what time your employees start and stop work each day can cost you thousands of dollars each month. The VTS 8000™ AVL system will help you ensure that each labor hour paid is one hour worked. VTS 8000™’s Reports has the ability to track vehicle start and stop times, which you can correlate to time sheets. This will either confirm or conflict with what is being reported. Its time to take the guesswork out of your business!
How do you route the nearest vehicle to a specific address? Using a radio or mobile phone is like throwing darts blindfolded. Its hit or miss. With VTS 8000™’s Real-Time Vehicle Tracking you have the ability to see your vehicles move around town in real-time, on your PC.
Employees starting late, quitting early, or taking excessively long lunches? If so, your labor costs are ballooning while revenues are decreasing. VTS 8000™’s Report provides you with detailed reporting on the location of each stop. Again, resulting in more work completed in less time.
Driver & Vehicle Safety
In rare and unfortunate situations, such as a vehicle breakdown, a vehicle theft or carjacking, or in the event of a medical emergency, locating your vehicle at that very moment is absolutely critical. The VTS 8000™ AVL system has a number of capabilities that allow you to react at a moments notice and will provide your drivers with peace of mind, knowing that when they are out in the field, they are not alone.
VTS 8000™ allows you to send a “locate” command to the vehicle to determine, within a few minutes, exactly where that vehicle is. You may also equip your vehicles with panic switches that are driver activated.

Antennas need to be mounted with at least a partial view of the sky, (under the front dash, rear dash, plastic bumper) Antennas are capable of "seeing through" glass, plastic and fiberglass. but are incapable of seeing through metal. (Do not put the antenna in the trunk) We recommend that whomever install the unit contact the technical support group during the installation so that we can verify that the equipment is working correctly.

The VTS 8000 system utilizes a new, highly dependable and inexpensive communications concept called Cellemmetry. Other ALS systems utilize cellular voice channels or existing two-way radio systems; these systems are subject to interference, data loss and interception by competitors. The VTS 8000 data is a digital transmission, error-corrected and is always transmitted at full legal power. Both in the air and over the Internet. Also VTS 8000 data streams are extremely difficult to intercept or corrupt.
