Park Ellis ServiceMaster Cuts Fuel Costs by 10%

January 05, 2011

TOLEDO, OHIO - Park Ellis ServiceMaster, a cleaning and disaster restoration services provider, has been able to cut costs in its operations using a fleet tracking solution.

Park Ellis ServiceMaster reduced fuel costs by 10 percent using Atlanta-based Discrete Wireless, Inc.'s MARCUS Fleet Tracking solution. Besides saving fuel costs, it has also helped the company reduced maintenance costs while improving customer service levels.

Jeff Amstutz, operations manager for Park Ellis ServiceMaster, researched several GPS fleet tracking solutions and GPS-enabled smartphones before selecting the MARCUS Fleet Management solution due to its ease of use and value.

"MARCUS proved to be the most economical solution for our organization and I knew we could achieve substantial savings in fuel, maintenance and operational costs," Amstutz said.

Since implementing fleet tracking solution and the MARCUS Drive integrated dispatching solution, Amstutz has been able to verify the location of his vehicles, improve communication with his drivers, and ultimately provide better customer service by providing clients with an estimated time of arrival. Additionally, system features such as the 32-point geo-fencing have increased security for his company's vehicles since he knows where the drivers are at all times.

With two offices located in Toledo, Ohio, Park Ellis ServiceMaster dispatches trained and equipped technicians in the event of an emergency. The company is EPA-certified and offers Clean Green products to reduce its environmental impact.
