Global Positioning Systems

To better serve our customers, all our service trucks are equipped with a GPS tracking system. At Black Tie Services, we always know the location of our technicians throughout the day. In addition to a GPS tracking system all our route drivers have Blackberry or Nextel devices for fast, easy accessibility.

GPS Equipped Vehicles

Black Tie Services is investing more money in new technologies to improve efficiency and to tackle increased operating costs. Though we also invest in new technologies such as cashless payment options or state-of-the-art vending equipment, we also feel it is important to invest in satellite-based fleet monitoring, known as Global Positioning Systems, or GPS.

GPS utilize a network of satellites that transmit radio signals to ground-based receivers. GPS technology, paired with analysis and specialized mapping software, provides Black Tie Services with up-to-date information on driver and vehicle activity, such as service stops and variations in route.

In our GPS system, data is transmitted via cellular telemetry to the main office or an Internet website where we can view our vending fleet activity in real time. There is also a two-way tracking system that utilizes low-orbit satellites, instead of cellular networks, that allows communication between drivers and managers.

Rising gas prices has piqued the interest of many vending machine operators. GPS can contribute to fuel savings by monitoring that unauthorized use of the company vehicle is not occurring, by allowing more efficient routing, and by allowing managers to know how fast a vehicle is traveling, as excessive speeds waste fuel.

What are the benefits of investing in GPS technology to you?

Since utilizing this technology, we have reported faster response time and improved customer relations (assuring that customers' service needs will be met in a timely fashion), improved employee accountability, improved overall efficiency, reduced liability and insurance costs, reduced fuel costs, more efficient route management, decreased vehicle wear and tear, automation of vehicle record keeping functions, and improved driver safety.

Between our competitive prices and our vending technology, the choice is easy. For additional information about Black Tie Services please complete our on-line information request or call us at 800-969-VEND.
