We often share stories about our business owners who have saved considerable amounts of money by utilizing our GPS tracking service. But once in a while, we also hear that our service has accomplished even more important goals.
A few weeks ago, one of our business owners noticed that an employee was late for work. At first, he assumed it was just a typical case of missing the morning alarm, or perhaps the employee was stuck in traffic. It isn’t unusual for an employee to report to work an hour or two later than expected.
But as the day wore on, the other employees reported that no one had heard from the missing worker. This was unusual behavior for him, and now everyone was worried. Several co-workers tried to call him, text him, and email him. He never responded. Another employee even went to his house, but he wasn’t there. Neither was the company car.
Luckily, another employee had a bright idea: Wasn’t his car equipped with the GPS Heroes tracking system? Chances are, he’s the one driving the car. Locate the car, and we can solve the mystery.
Within minutes, the car had been located via computer. The man lives in a remote part of Hawaii, and had accidentally driven off of a 200-foot cliff! The car was not visible from the road, and no one had witnessed the accident.
Without GPS tracking, authorities would never have know where to begin searching. The search and rescue effort could have taken days or weeks, leaving the man’s family and friends worried the entire time. But thanks to our tracking system, the man and his car were found within a few hours.
Like so many others, this story just proves that a GPS tracking service is about much more than saving gas mileage or catching employees taking unapproved breaks. Our service provides security and peace of mind to business owners, employees, and even the employees’ friends and family.
