fleetminder is an Australian owned and operated company supplying vehicle and asset tracking solutions in over 12 countries.
Here are some of the fleetminder GPS tracking system benefits, cost-savings and efficiency improvements obtained by our clients:
“Downer EDI Engineering Electrical Pty Ltd in Western Australia has fitted 15 vehicles with tracking devices. In addition to the standard tracking units an alarm module has been fitted in order to activate a remote wireless Emergency Alert with a range of up to 2km from the vehicle”.
“This alert is relayed through by SMS to a mobile phone and onto the screen of any computer logged into the system. The vehicle is then located through either the mobile phone or computer in order to get assistance to the vehicle in the shortest time, bringing peace of mind to technicians out on their own in remote or dangerous areas.”
“Downer EDI Engineering Electrical Pty Ltd, amongst other duties, are contracted to maintain the traffic signals and street lighting around Perth. The system allows Downer EDI Engineering Electrical Pty Ltd to easily extract reports regarding all the servicing and repairs to all the traffic signals and lighting by using Trip Reports, Driving Time Reports and Site Reports.”
“Using our GPS Vehicle Tracking System gives us the ability to utilise our fleet of vehicles to their optimum by sending the closest available vehicle to a Fault, thus minimising the inconvenience to other motorists and the general public. Reducing our costs and being more efficient makes us more profitable.”
“All our vehicles are clearly marked with our company logo and name, the tracking system ensures that our technicians are aware that they are being monitored for their driving habits as the worst advertising for a company is bad driving by somebody in a marked company vehicle. Downer EDI Engineering Electrical Pty Ltd is a proud Australian company with close ties to the local community and ensuring good driving habits by our staff helps us maintain our status.”
– David Fourie (Traffic Signals & Infrastructure Manager)
“NRL Freightlines, based in Welshpool, operate with a fleet of 10 new prime movers coupled with trailers and side loaders. They specialize in container freight between the Fremantle Port and their customers and in addition, have facilities for container storage.”
“My Fleet Management/Tracking system allows me to optimise the use of my vehicles. I can easily see exactly where all my vehicles are at any time which allows me to use my fleet as efficiently as possible, benefitting both the client and my business.”
“Automatic Maintenance Scheduling with emails going to all involved means that my vehicles are always in tip top condition.
Making use of some of the comprehensive reports help to ensure that my drivers paid for the hours that they actually work, my vehicles are not unduly held up in the port or at a customer’s business and this frees up my time to build the business and make me more profitable.”
“Having all the reports available to me assists in ensuring that I have the necessary facts at my fingertips for Auditing and compliance requirements.”
– Nigel Legett (Managing Director)
“The results were immediate.While initially we felt that that it was a little ‘big brotherish’, there were some undeniable underlying cultural issues regarding start and finish times.”
Having quickly moved on from that point, cars and trades people are no longer being routed inappropriately and being able to view the closest vehicle to a job that needs to been done “now” has added an amazing amount of efficiency and a competitive dynamic to the organisation.”
“When requested, we can provide accurate timing of when trades people will be attending site, and be on the front foot where someone is running late. The vast array of reports and alerts, in particular the Geofence alerts via email or SMS, mean that you aren’t constantly logging in to the product to view activities.I would conservatively estimate that the product has added at least 30 minutes a day per vehicle in productive time….and of course, we no longer need to ask; “Where are you now?”
– Steve Brown (General Manager)
“Award Logistics are a transport and logistics company based in Jandakot. We operate a fleet of 20 trucks and 19 trailers. We currently are in the process of fitting out our entire fleet with the fleetfinder GPS tracking system.
We originally started with a trial on 4 of our trucks and have since found fleetfinder to be a very efficient way of tracking our tucks that go on long distance trips. We are easily able to monitor their whereabouts, their speed and other useful trip information. This helps us manage our costs and schedule our trucks for their next trips.
Our clients are also happy with the service we can provide them using Fleet Minder such as providing them with an accurate time of arrival for their deliveries.”
– Leigh McRostie (Managing Director)
“When a company like ours grows as quickly as we did it is vital that we keep our eye on the ball. Tracking the equipment across various projects and operations can be challenging and is open to errors & inaccuracies. The diversity of the business means administration costs are also difficult to control. In an effort to streamline systems management, we installed the Fleetminder GPS tracking devices, resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and reducing costs across many areas of the business.”
“We were primarily looking to improve customer service and reduce business costs but once installed & trained we found that the system had so many more benefits for a business like ours. We have significantly reduced the day to day running costs of our fleet & are much better equipped to accurately quote on jobs resulting in sustainable yet competitive pricing for our clients. Many of our administration tasks have been reduced to minutes from hours & we no longer need to rely on drivers to give us accurate records, they can concentrate on driving, which gives us a happier team.”
“The Fleetminder system is constantly adding new useful features & reports & while I know I won’t ever use all of them it shows us that they are thinking ahead. When dealing with incidents on mines & insurance issues the Fleetminder system is an invaluable tool.”
– Murray West, Director, West Transport

We can better satisfy our customers by keeping them well informed regarding freight arrival times, and protect our staff and assets by checking driving times and how equipment is being used and treated.”
