Tara Morris:
We are growing really fast.
Every day we are looking for ways to improve.
We’ve upgraded technology.
We’re looking for anyway to do things faster and more effectively so that we can continue to grow.

HuDawn Facility Solutions is a construction, maintenance and landscaping company in the Cincinnati area and they are growing fast. Their fleet went from 2 vehicles to 16 in just a year and are already looking to add more. Plus they’ll be expanding their operations into two more markets in the coming year.
Tara Morris:
Finding good fast smart technology to really improve and optimize what we’re doing has been very valuable.
Doing it an old fashioned way: calling guys, waiting for responses, text messaging back and forth, things like that. That’s just never going to work. That’s just not a good operational platform to grow off of.
VoiceOver:
To reduce fuel costs and usage, monitor service and performance, and boost productivity, HuDawn came to RACO Industries for our GPS Tracking solution.
Tara Morris:
Supervisors know exactly where their guys are at any given time. This is beneficial for customer communication. It’s beneficial for work hour validation. It’s also beneficial just to make sure that we know where our guys are at any given time for safety reasons.

Matt Hanna:
I use this almost every 15-30 minutes. I’m looking at it, making sure where my guys are at. Making sure they are where they should be at. I know when the vehicles leave the shop. I know when they’re speeding. I know when they’re stopping. When they’re idling. Going to restaurants. Not working. Working. I basically know everything that they do on a daily basis without having to leave my desk.
VoiceOver:
Even when they’re not directly checking their drivers on their desktop or mobile computer, there are a number of alerts that can immediately notify management about problematic behavior exhibited by their drivers. HuDawn set up such as Excessive speed, excessive acceleration, harsh braking, and Idling time.
Matt Hanna:
I’m started really digging into the idle time. And noticed how much time we’re actually spending and how much fuel we’re actually wasting by guys just sitting in the truck, AC, or just having the truck idle while they’re out working or something.
So I’m trying to see how to save the company money.
