Have You Thought About Custom Embroidery?

Branding.  It’s a big deal.  Not only for your customers but for your employees too! Wrapping your trucks, having a sweet storefront, and getting matching uniforms for everyone is great.  It helps promote your brand and it makes your company recognizable no matter where or how people come across you. But what about branding for your employees?  It’s really important.  If your employees don’t buy into your brand, how will they represent it to your prospects and customers?  Probably not too well. One of our dealers gets their installation employees matching toolboxes so when you walk into the shop, each...

What’s the Difference Between A Good Fleet Manager and A Great One?

Do you know what sets a great fleet manager apart from a good one? https://youtu.be/TgdCjWbdDXY More Info on TigerTough Is it consistently coming in on budget?

We won't use a seat quite this bad in our example...

Are You A Great Fleet Manager?

Most every company that has a few pieces of equipment has a preventative maintenance plan.  They get the fact that their equipment is going to see some wear-and-tear and they’re going to need to address it before it becomes broken-and-junk.  This is good. The best fleet managers out there (you know who you are!) are always looking for new ways to improve their vehicles and equipment.  They realize that no plan is bulletproof and that they could always stand to learn something new.  We love meeting these people at events like the NAFA Institute and Expo and The Work Truck Show...

Police Fleet Findings

We did a little survey at the 2018 Police Fleet Expo this year in St. Louis.  We asked police fleet managers about some common fleet problems and asked them which ones they'd like to eliminate if they could. If you're a fleet manager, whether it be police, fire, or commercial, you most likely can relate to issues that we presented to the fleet managers we talked to . The options were: DowntimeFixing damages caused by "wear and tear"Low resale or trade-in values on vehicles The results were as follows: 48 fleet managers would love to eliminate Downtime.45 attendees said Fixing...
