“Google Maps is ideal for helping our customers track vehicle fleets to show they aren’t being used for personal business. Companies also use it for dispatching to save on fuel costs.”

Challenge

Companies with vehicle fleets need to have documentation showing their vehicles are used for business rather than personal purposes. If they lack the proper documentation they can face stiff tax penalties. ABAX sells a vehicle-tracking GPS device called ABAX Triplog that can trace all of a vehicle’s travels, providing proof it was used for valid company business. ABAX needed a mapping platform to use in concert with Triplog.

Solution

ABAX chose Google Maps as the mapping platform for Triplog because it found them to be the most accurate and up to date, and the APIs were more powerful and simpler to use than competing platforms. ABAX used the Google Maps Javascript API to build a website that its customers use to view where its vehicles have traveled and as proof they were used for business purposes. Triplog can also be used to route company vehicles. ABAX uses the reverse geocoding feature of the Google Maps Geocoding API to determine the precise locations of vehicles for dispatching.

Benefits

  • ABAX has saved its customers nearly 3,400 person-hours a month due to more efficient vehicle-dispatching
  • Customers’ vehicle-related expenses were reduced by 20%, including for fuel, maintenance and insurance
  • Customers have decreased their fleet fuel use by more accurately dispatching vehicles to their locations
