An Ohio HVACR contractor has saved a significant amount of time and money by implementing a GPS-enabled vehicle management system from @Road.

Of more than 109,000 users nationwide, @Road says it has approximately 10,000 HVACR subscribers using its mobile resource management service. The Aire-Flo Corp., Columbus, Ohio, averages 100 field service calls a day, 365 days a year, delivering heating, cooling, and electrical systems and services to commercial and residential customers in central Ohio.

Using the @Road GeoManager service, a location-based wireless solution for mobile resource management, Aire-Flo was able to significantly increase the number of daily field service calls and increase its profit margin while decreasing maintenance and administrative costs.

The company says it saved 60 minutes/per day and 15 hours per month per worker, as well as saving $61,000 in administrative costs over 12 months
