GPS Insight

Charles Becker is a manager at EDGE Systems, an oil and gas company based in Texas.  We had an opportunity to meet with him to get a first-hand user review of his transition from Verizon Connect to GPS Insight.   

Originally, they were partnering with Verizon. At first, they were able to find solutions to a handful of problems. Unfortunately, their “honeymoon” phase ended rather abruptly.    

The battery-powered trackers they purchased for their assets completely died after a year of use when they were promised at least five years. Becker and his team didn’t hit a major roadblock until they reached out to Verizon for support. 

“Their support was outside of the country and was absolutely abysmally terrible,” said Becker. “It goes to the point where it was so frustrating, we said, ‘you know what, we’re done.’”   

Becker went on to explain that Verizon’s only suggestion was for them to power cycle their mobile device trackers. Unfortunately, that option was not possible since their office was based in Texas and their assets were in rural New Mexico. Following Verizon’s suggestion would disrupt their workflow.  

“The move to GPS [Insight] was 99% of their support,” Becker said.    

Unfortunately, we hear stories like this repeatedly when speaking with current and former Verizon management system customers.    

At GPS Insight, we understand the frustrations and limitations faced by Verizon Connect users, which is why we offer a comprehensive suite of products and services designed to address all their unique challenges.    

Whether it’s the need for more robust GPS tracking, enhanced dash cams, or advanced field and fleet management software, customers find that GPS Insight offers the solutions they’ve been looking for, prompting them to leave Verizon Connect behind.

Our GPS tracking system gives you a virtual heartbeat on the things that matter most for your fleet.   

Utilizing our GPS asset tracking, clients have successfully protected their drivers from fraudulent insurance claims, optimized routes for multiple concurrent jobs, and achieved significant cost savings across their entire operations.   

With GPS Insight, you can streamline expenses related to vehicles, labor, fuel, and maintenance, courtesy of our comprehensive solution that offers complete visibility into your fleet and drivers.   

Integrated dash cams further enhance fleet maintenance efforts, ensuring optimal performance and safety standards. Our real-time tracking capabilities address multiple challenges seamlessly, providing peace of mind by eliminating uncertainties about vehicle whereabouts, arrival times, and driver routes. With our advanced trackers, you’ll experience unparalleled control and efficiency in managing your fleet operations and job management.  

You can also access a cloud-based tracking system which can help cut down on fuel costs with the fuel management settings. Some of our more advanced gear will also help you with vehicle maintenance.

Dash Cams
 

GPS Insight offers state-of-the-art dash cams that offer a variety of solutions like:    

      • GPS tracking   
      • Driver coaching   
      • A second witness to prevent fraudulent claims    
      • Proof your fleet was at a location when they were supposed to be   
      • And more!    

We’ve even been able to provide a solution to fleet resistance to using dash cams.    

In our conversation with Becker, he mentioned how his driver was strongly against having a dash cam in the car. Using Verizon technology did not help either.    

“Two of the Verizon cameras fell off the window,” Becker said. “Two of my techs were able to go in there [Verizon camera], pull a fuse, and bypass the whole thing. We didn’t even know; we had no idea.”   

GPS Insight’s cameras provide a feature called “Greenzone,” a scoring system designed to incentivize and promote safe and responsible driving. Rather than come off as a “big brother” with driver management, protect your assets from theft, get live metrics on when to update your fleet, and also allow you to coach your fleet passively.    

Fleets that have effectively utilized this feature have achieved the highest scores possible, ensuring safety on the road and smooth operation for your business.

Verizon Connect Alternatives

 

Samsara 

Samsara’s comprehensive approach to fleet management, encompassing assets, drivers, sites, and equipment, resonates positively with customers seeking a holistic solution. The platform’s safety-focused features offer peace of mind for businesses prioritizing safety standards. Additionally, the flexibility in pricing options caters to diverse customer needs.    

However, challenges with customer service have been reported, with some users expressing frustration over difficulties in issue resolution and a perceived lack of understanding from the support team. Moreover, the licensing structure, lacking month-to-month options, may pose constraints for smaller businesses, since their pricing model could be perceived as a barrier for budget-conscious buyers, potentially limiting accessibility to the platform.

Lytx

Lytx Fleet Management Solutions presents a robust suite of tools aimed at enhancing safety and productivity within fleet management operations. Praised for its user-friendly interface and high-quality video capabilities, Lytx stands out for its ability to provide actionable insights into driver behaviors and improve overall safety standards. Many users have lauded its effectiveness in coaching drivers and preventing accidents through real-time alerts. However, despite its strengths, Lytx is not without its drawbacks.   

Some users have encountered technical issues, experiencing downtime during critical daytime hours, while others have expressed frustration with delayed customer service responses. Additionally, the platform’s complex navigation can pose challenges for users, potentially leading to errors and misunderstandings. While Lytx offers valuable solutions, prospective users need to consider these limitations before making it their primary fleet management option.

Omnitracs

Omnitracs stands as a versatile ally for businesses across the transportation spectrum, offering tailored solutions to streamline fleet operations and ensure timely delivery of goods. Praised for its high-quality and secure offerings, Omnitracs earns accolades for its innovative approach to addressing industry challenges, from enhancing driver performance to optimizing routes and ensuring regulatory compliance.   

However, challenges emerge in implementation, with some customers encountering hurdles during setup and functionality integration. Additionally, complaints about inadequate communication and support underscore areas for improvement, alongside concerns regarding subpar user experiences, including navigation and usability issues. Despite these drawbacks, Omnitracs remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions and exceptional service to its clientele, driving success in the transportation and logistics arena.   

Quartix

Quartix offers commercial fleet tracking solutions for various vehicles, including trucks, vans, and cars, both in the USA and worldwide.    

Their system claims a range of features designed to enhance productivity, cut costs, and save on fuel for more than 10,000 businesses. Customers appreciate the ease of installation and use, along with responsive customer service and competitive pricing.    

However, some users have reported challenges with customer support, especially due to time zone differences and language barriers since the company is based in the UK. Integration limitations and usability have also been brought up by their user reviews as pain points, suggesting that while Quartix offers valuable tracking capabilities, it appears their cons outweigh their pros, especially when it comes to customer support.
