Cloud based Solution Replaces Incumbent with Ease of Use and Reporting Features
Thingtech (www.thingtech.com) – an Atlanta, GA company announced today that it has deployed TracIT – a real-time asset tracking solution – to the City of Coconut Creek, FL. The City operates a fleet of approximately 65 vehicles to deliver services throughout the City.
After a financial review of its existing fleet tracking system, the City concluded the cost / benefit of switching to the Thingtech platform was too compelling not to act. The existing system had grown expensive and lacked innovation, while Thingtech was able to provide long term cost reduction and better return on investment, a better user interface, and upside to integrate other city systems for a mobile resource management solution as opposed to just a fleet tracking solution.
“Coconut Creek is a fantastic example of the need for innovation in the fleet management market. They require more than just basic fleet tracking and have a vision for an integrated platform for Fleet Tracking, Asset Management, and Field Services. We’re excited to work with them to fulfill the vision.” says Brian Corcoran, President of thingtech.
The solution is being scaled in by department to further reduce the City’s financial investment. As structured, the City saves money both in the long term and immediately with Thingtech’s creative hardware leasing program. Through the program, the City is not required to purchase hardware outright and instead leases the hardware on a monthly basis. In addition to avoiding a capital expense, the City also takes advantage of a continual hardware warranty program and still has reduced monthly expenses contrasted with its legacy system. These benefits, combined with the upside of the Thingtech platform was an easy decision for the City.
