-Gary Schneider, Vice President & General Manager VehiclePath, Fleet Services

We’re all feeling the pain at the gas station… With summer approaching, fuel costs usually rise. Wouldn’t you like the ability to monitor activities that affect your bottom line? Speeding, excessive idling, travel outside of authorized areas, unauthorized use of your vehicles, and fuel theft, just to name a few of the things that can be tracked and monitored.

Many people think that fleet GPS tracking systems are only affordable for larger companies…. and that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

VehiclePath, Guided by Spireon, has become the go-to option that is being used by thousands of small companies across the United States and Canada to track and manage the efficiency of their fleets. Even if you only have a few vehicles for your business, wouldn’t you want to know where your employees are going 24/7, how fast they’re driving, and how long it really takes them to finish their routes and assigned jobs?

Now, you can take advantage of this great solution, and it will be easy on your wallet. We are pleased to introduce a new simple and hassle-free monthly rental program called ServicePlus. For the low price of $24.95 per month, you get everything you need — the hardware, real time tracking, unlimited anytime, anywhere, web-based access and no contract.

We have several different rate plans available, proving that with ServicePlus you will never be stuck with yesterday’s technology.

Our business intelligence solutions are innovative and easy to use. Combined with our world-class technical support and excellent customer service, you can’t go wrong. You don’t need to live with unknowns and assumptions. You will have the power to detect and eliminate waste and inefficiencies that can negatively affect your business in many ways.

Family-Owned Small Business Essannay Credits VehiclePath With Recovering Stolen Truck

Chicago-based small business Essannay generated an immediate return on its VehiclePath GPS Monitoring and Tracking investment when the company used the system to recover a stolen truck. A family-owned and operated audio/visual rental company, Essannay operates a 2002 Ford Heavy Duty Van to transport equipment to and from its customers’ meeting sites and locations.

“Our fleet consists of one truck that is vital to our business,” says Essannay President Christopher Chambers. “The VehiclePath system we installed on our truck paid for itself the moment the stolen vehicle was located and recovered, before any damage was done to it.”

Chambers installed VehiclePath on the Essannay truck one year ago to promote route compliance among his drivers.  “I kept getting gas receipts from places where the truck wasn’t supposed to be,” recalls Chambers. “I wanted to keep better track of where my drivers were going, as well as how they were driving.” VehiclePath provided the solution to his challenges.

A powerful, flexible and highly scalable GPS Vehicle Tracking and Monitoring system developed by Spireon, Inc., which emerged in 2011 as the industry-leading Mobile Resource Management (MRM) company developing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based tools, VehiclePath provides continuous real-time visibility for local fleets.  For a small business like Essannay, VehiclePath offers a cost-effective way to improve driver productivity, increase driver safety, ensure route compliance, and enhance on-time delivery as well as customer satisfaction.

“VehiclePath allows me to set up a Geofence, a geographical boundary that extends beyond our normal service area,” Chambers explains. “The instant one of my drivers takes the truck outside this Geofence, I get an instant alert on my cell phone and via e-mail. So I can call my driver to find out why they’ve veered off the route. I can keep track of my drivers anytime, even when I’m not in the office.”

Chambers says that VehiclePath has been a useful tool in reducing unwanted driver behavior, including excessive idling and speeding. But he most values having instant access to real-time intelligence. “VehiclePath tells me exactly what I need to know. Now I can see where my truck is every day, at any given moment. I can see when the truck arrived at a customer location, what time the equipment was delivered, what time the truck left, and if the driver had to go back for some reason. Before VehiclePath, I had to call the customer for this information, which wasn’t the best for customer service.”

VehiclePath has also allowed Essannay to control costs related to fuel consumption and maintenance. “The system sends me alerts when it’s time for a tune up or oil change, or when the battery’s gone bad, so I can take care of it in a timely fashion,” says Chambers. “And I expect to see a reduction in my auto insurance as well.”

But perhaps the biggest return on his VehiclePath investment came from a surprising use of the system. “When our truck got stolen from our back lot, it took me a few minutes to realize that I could use VehiclePath to find out where it was,” Chambers recalls. “Sure enough, we pinpointed its exact location and sent someone down to keep a set of eyes on it until the police could arrive. Within four hours of noticing it was gone, we had our truck back, fully operational.”

Adds Chambers, “I would have loved to see the expression on the thief’s face when he realized that the truck he’d stolen had been stolen back.”

Chambers says that by recovering the company truck, VehiclePath instantly paid for itself, “and for years to come.” He adds, “I didn’t have to waste time to file any reports, or buy a new truck. All I had to do was click my mouse, and there was my van. If I had more cars, I’d get one for every vehicle. I’d tell anyone to install VehiclePath, install lots of them. It’s well worth it.”

Corporate Identity Shift- Brian Boling, CEO

What’s in a name? If done properly, everything! ProconGPS was born in an era when GPS was something only found in the oceans of the world as part of maritime navigation and safety equipment. In 2001 the founders of the company introduced the first commercialized integrated analogue cell phone / GPS functionality in the USA designed for landlubbers, A Protect and Connect™tag line used for that product finally grew into a descriptive name used to define the device and its security focus: ProconGPS, Inc.

Fast forward about a decade and we find that while the cellular + GPS combination has thrived in this new digital age, the name of the game is no longer simply providing a working combination device. Data can now be gathered from a multitude of sensors in the mobile world. That data can be analyzed on the device or pushed to a server environment where it is sliced and diced and evaluated such that the information forthcoming can be valuable and critical to customers that are trying to improve mobile workforce and asset management. Today our mission is to connect companies to their mobile assets & workforce through game changing information platforms; putting the power in their hands to manage actionable business intelligence. So we needed a proper name – one that covers this territory without suggesting a device bias.

After months of deliberation with our partners & shareholders, along with extensive research done by our marketing team, we are ready to announce that name to the world. Our passion is to climb to the summit of mobile business intelligence. So we wanted a name that would work off of a root word like “spire”. Our goal is to remain tightly focused on customer needs. So we desired a name that was based on a word like “spear”. We wanted to sustain our rapid growth and leadership therefore a suggestive word like forever or “eon” would be a nice add. Drum roll please… Spireon will be the new corporate name. Pronounced (“Spear” and “eon”) we believe the name captures our passion to excel and stay focused. And with the tagline, Guiding Business Intelligence, the name plainly states our purpose in the world.

Today, Thursday March 22nd, is the day we announce our new corporate identity – Spireon Inc, and coined the tagline: Guiding Business Intelligence. Along with the name change, ProconGPS has adopted a new logo. All of these changes are effective immediately, and all future business activity will be undertaken with the new name, logo and ultimately our new identity. We’ve created a new corporate website www.spireon.com, which includes information and links to all our brands in each of our segments: Dealer Services, Fleet Services and Lender Services.
