Zubie has formed a partnership with ProTradeNet, the vendor management company of the Dwyer Group, and seven of its franchise companies including, Mr. Rooter, Mr. Electric, Mr. Appliance, Rainbow International, Aire Serv, Glass Doctor and Five Star Painting.
The partnership makes Zubie a preferred supplier for vehicle tracking and diagnostics solutions to franchisees of the Dwyer Group's selected brands, which mostly serve small and medium-size fleets.
Zubie's low-cost fleet management service is tailored to the mobile nature of the Dwyer Group's brands, whose vehicles are constantly on the road. On-the-go franchise owners can view all of their company's vehicle locations on a live map via the Zubie mobile apps and web view, according to the company.
Zubie also provides owners with conveniently summarized driving reports with insights for monitoring the driving behavior of their employees. Fleet managers and business owners can receive instant alerts for speeding and hard-braking incidents when they occur. In addition to increasing the safety of employee-drivers and other motorists, a branded vehicle is an SMB's most visible advertisement. Zubie's reports can help to eliminate damage to a business's reputation that result from the reckless driving of company-vehicles.
Zubie lowers fleet ownership and operation costs by reducing vehicle downtime by sending alerts triggered by low battery levels and engine health events. For example, a business owner would immediately receive a low battery notification if an employee leaves a service vehicle's headlights on the night before a full day of appointments.
To ensure that deliveries and service appointments are on schedule, Zubie allows for geo-fence notifications via text or email when vehicles arrive and depart locations important to their businesses. Further, Zubie's simple installation process – smart device plug-in and activation via web or mobile app - means business owners will not have to waste time and resources training managers and drivers on setup and operation.
The Dwyer Group's franchise owners can access exclusive discounts for Zubie Business and rebate eligibility information via their ProTradeNet accounts.
