Cloud based Solution Improves Productivity of Mobile Workforce

Thingtech (www.thingtech.com) – an Atlanta, GA company announced today that it has deployed TracIT to Gallup McKinley School District in Gallup, New Mexico.  The District deploys over 40 mobile assets and work crews daily to maintain and operate 35 facilities across a 4,957 square mile geography in rural New Mexico.  The facilities maintained by the district include school facilities, bus / motor pool facilities, warehouses, teacher housing units, and other support infrastructure to carry out the District’s mission of providing exemplary K – 12 education.

To help keep up with the workload, the District turned to thingtech and their flagship GPS tracking solution to help track worker productivity, location, and equipment conditions.  “We’re thrilled to assist the Gallup McKinley School District maintain their fleet and school district facilities.  Our solution is simple, yet powerful and extends a standard GPS system into a mission critical, work management business system for maintenance operations.” says Brian Corcoran, President of thingtech.

Gallup McKinley chose to deploy the system across several departments including Grounds, Carpenters, Mechanical crews, as well as the Receiving and Delivery Warehouse – each with slightly different requirements.  As an example, warehouse operations includes a fleet of vehicles that delivers food to each school facility in the district and requires refrigeration while in transit.  To ensure the quality and safety of the cargo, thingtech has deployed each vehicle with a temperature sensing solution that tracks and notifies users when refrigeration conditions are not met.

In addition, preventive equipment maintenance tasks are managed within the solution are integrated with real-time miles and time tracking.  The resulting solution provides a system to ensure the fleet is properly maintained, costs reduced, and the fleet optimized.

“Thingtech has been fantastic and easy to work with. Installation of the system was performed in about a day and required little ramp up time. The system is so intuitive that I personally set up 90% of our solution before training even started.” says Ron Triplehorn, Maintenance and Operations Director.
