GPS fleet tracking helps plumbing company recover stolen truck

Problem: LeadingEdge Plumbing & Rooter suffered a small-business nightmare: the theft of a company truck from a job site. It was the first time that had ever happened in the company’s 20-year history. When police finally recovered it, the thief had managed to offload all of the expensive tools and equipment onboard — which the company never recovered.

Solution: Immediately after this theft, LeadingEdge Plumbing realized it was critical they knew where their trucks and expensive equipment were at all times. After extensive research, they choose ClearPathGPS based on the top star ratings on review sites like TrustPilot and Capterra, along with the ability to get up and running quickly and flexible month-to-month service contract.

Result: They got the chance to learn firsthand just how smart their decision was to equip their fleet with GPS tracking units — when another company vehicle was stolen from a job site. “But this time,” explained the owner, “we were able to call the cops right away, and using ClearPathGPS’ live map view of the truck’s movements, we guided police right to it.” Soon after, the police stopped the vehicle, apprehended the thieves, and recovered the truck and equipment worth about $100,000. Other results achieved include better dispatching and service as well as more accuracy with job durations and timecards. 888-734-0384; www.clearpathgps.com
