August 2, 2012 (FPRC) -- Today's GPS, cellular, and satellite technologies offer businesses the opportunity to monitor the location and safety of their most remote workers in real time. From oil and gas workers working in remote well locations, to delivery drivers operating on less traveled roads, we now have the ability to know that are most valuable assets are safe without having to pick up the phone.
There are quite a few companies that offer GPS tracking devices which can be utilized in a number of ways. At industry leader Cartasite, fleet safety is at the forefront of their fleet management technology. Their ROVR system can do much more than let you know where your workers are. Deployed with worker safety in mind, the system can be set up to automatically notify managers that their workers have arrived on location as well as when they get home at night. Having this type of information automatically sent to the appropriate parties allows the drivers, remote workers and managers to be more productive and of course safe. Managers no longer need to spend hours making phone calls at the end of their days to make sure their workers have made it to their destination and home.
Epic Energy is one example of company that understands how valuable this type of automation can be. They utilize Cartasite 's fleet management tool for their field employees out of Shreveport, LA as well as Fort Worth, TX and soon their remote field workers in the Appalachian region of Pennsylvania. Ron Rougeau, the VP of Health, Safety, and Environmental Operations was pleased with the implementation of the Home Safe program with his fleets as it not only notifies the manager of the employees safety, but does so on an automatic basis. Automating the home check-in process relieves the employee of manually calling in, and relieving the manager of fielding all of these calls each evening.
As a result of Mr. Rougeau putting the HomeSafe feature into action, the field workers at Epic Energy find the automatic alerts more than helpful, because the last thing you want at the end of a long day is to have to remember to make another phone call. The fleet managers also appreciate the automatic alerts - being able to receive the notifications via email relives 10+ phone calls each per night - which is an grateful silence.
Today's world is full of continuously improving technologies that are making our world safer and our businesses more efficient, and this is a prime example. Cartasite offers fleet management systems for the Oil and Gas Industry as well as any company with a fleet of vehicles that wants to make their fleets safer and more efficient.
