Lucky Neighbors!

A friend of mine owns a pool maintenance company with a few technicians.  As the owner, my friend is constantly putting out fires throughout the day. Sometimes customers call about the strangest things. 

One particular lady called two weeks in a row, complaining that her pool still looked dirty.  When questioned, the technician who serviced the pool showed his paperwork that clearly outlined detailed chemical levels and even a check list of services performed.  What was this lady talking about?  

Luckily my friend was smart enough to place a GPS vehicle tracking device called DashTrac into his service vehicles.  Turns out the woman’s neighbors were enjoying a free weekly pool cleaning!  The guy was cleaning the wrong pool.  

I couldn’t help but laugh, since I just imagined the neighbors sitting there watching this kid clean their pool each week - and wondering: "What's up with that?"

DashTrac helped solve the mystery.

My co-worker's wife just called him at work because she got lost and couldn't figure out how to get home from downtown Tampa. Let me repeat myself: HE WAS AT WORK.
Our company's CEO had a similar situation with his daughter. Their neighborhood was under construction and her usual route to school was blocked. She had to detour around the obstacle, and their neighborhood is a maze.  She didn’t want to be late for school, but couldn’t get her bearings.
My child called with a flat tire on the highway, and had no idea where he was.  He knew the highway, but wasn’t sure what mile marker he was near.
All three were helped using DashTrac.
In less than two minutes – any DashTrac user can log into their account, quickly determine a vehicle’s exact location, the speed it is traveling and the direction they're moving in. It’s so easy just to talk them through their dilemma in a safe, calm and dependable way.
How cool is that?
