1-800-GOT-JUNK? Selects Digital Dispatch
RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA – eFleet, Digital Dispatch’s ASP mobile fleet management business initiative, has added 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise partners as customers. eFleet is streamlining the fleet operations of the world’s largest junk removal company through increased automation and improved communications.
Since March 2007, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise partners have subscribed to more than $300,000 in eFleet service agreements with three-year terms. The systems are currently being deployed in approximately 100 of their vehicles, representing about 10 percent of the total vehicle fleet operated by 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, with volumes expected to increase in 2008.
The project was initiated early in 2007 to establish an advanced set of wireless fleet management features designed to improve operational efficiencies for 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise partners’ junk-removal trucks. Vehicles equipped with the eFleet system have been dubbed “Smart Trucks” by 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. The eFleet system provides remote monitoring of vehicle movements; two-way text messaging between fleet managers and drivers; integrated GPS navigation that automatically guides drivers to their dispatched jobs; and in-vehicle credit card payment processing with receipt printing.
