7 ways to Drive Down Your Fleet Gas Bill
SageQuest is mentioned in Security Dealer Magazine regarding driving down fleet fuel costs.
Solon, OH - March 20, 2012 Dan Budinoff, president, Security Specialists in Stamford, Conn., employs â€śa whole bunchâ€ť of efficiency and
safety solutions. He has, for example, a fuel surcharge of $5 per service call as a hopefully short term
In addition to bringing in Transit Connects for service techs, Budinoff equipped sales staffers with Honda Fits, a unique looking vehicle but, according to Budinoff, the Fits fit in, thanks to their 30 miles per gallon or so attraction. Another one is his WrightExpress (South Portland, Maine) fleet charge and fuel cards. Unlike oil company-specific cards, WrightExpress cards, according to Budinoff, are honored by most gas station, â€śincluding the off brands,â€ť and make it easier for drivers to more quickly shop around for a best buy. In addition, use of the cards at Security Specialists triggers daily reports to SageQuest, of Solon, Ohio, a software-as-a-service partner of SedonaOffice of Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
Orvis also is a SageQuest user to put job information, work orders and customer locations in the context of a real-time map view for drivers. â€śWe can lay out a dayâ€™s worth of service calls. In one view with six different calls, for example, the map shows the direction of ways to go and inefficiencies in routing. When possible, we juggle appointment times to achieve more directional travel.â€ť

And more recently a client of ours came to us with a request to link our apps to a GPS app.â€ť Boom. â€śWhen you create a service call, even before you schedule it, you can see every service vehicle [in the area] and drag and drop appointments or swap to optimize visits.â€ť He points out that, no matter the fleet size, there are savings to be made, exponentially as the number of vehicles increase. â€śBetter route planning and efficiencies. Time saved and increased productivity. More billings per day.â€ť
