As far as you know, your fleet business’ invoicing process works just fine.
Until a customer calls to complain about over-billing.
Then it’s back to the paper files to leaf through driver logs, date entries and customer histories to determine whether an error in your administration truly exists. And then the phone call with the now dissatisfied customer. And then the bargaining, or the sheepish apology.
And then the look back on all the time spent inefficiently, spent on company time for a project that has passed. OK, maybe your invoicing process isn’t perfect.
Consider the potential time and cost savings of that scenario if you had GPS fleet tracking software in place.
