ROTO-ROOTER FRANCHISEE ASSOCIATION ADDS FLEETBOSS TO ENDORSED VENDOR LIST
Orlando, Fla. – (February 19, 2002) – FleetBoss Global Positioning Solutions, Inc., the leading developer and distributor of GPS-based fleet management systems, today announced it has become an Endorsed Vendor for the Roto-Rooter Franchisee Association (RRFA) headquartered in Carson City, Nev. Under the terms of the Endorsed Vendor Agreement, Central Florida-based FleetBoss and its national network of Dealers gain marketing and sales access to the RRFA’s members. In return, RRFA members will benefit from product and service discounts from FleetBoss.
“Our job is to educate the RRFA Members on how our GPS-based fleet management and tracking systems provide real time and vehicle history data that will save them bottom line dollars,” said Brian Carroll, VP and COO for FleetBoss. “We can show the Franchisee where and when their vehicles stop and for how long, the routes they travel and even whether or not it was a service or non-service call – all with customized graphics reporting and easy to read graphs. This information can influence decisions that will save the Franchisee on expenses such as fuel, overtime, insurance costs, vehicle wear and maintenance and just about any expense associated with their vehicles,” he added.
“We welcome FleetBoss to our Endorsed Vendor List,” said Mark Metcalfe, chairman of the RRFA Endorsed Vendor Committee. “In addition to our Members receiving preferred discount pricing from FleetBoss, they may also realize significant savings with the installation of these tracking systems. We view this as a win-win situation for our Members,” he added.
