    Company: Cable ONE

    Industry: Telecommunications

    Fleet Size: 1,000+

    Contact: Tad Drescher, Manager of Process Improvement and Workforce Management

    Background: Cable ONE is among the 10 largest cable companies in the U.S. and currently serves nearly 700,000

    customers in 19 states with cable television, high-speed Internet, and telephone services. With a focus on customer

    satisfaction and local service, Cable ONE has equipped over 1,000 vehicles with GPS Insight solutions to manage

    nearly 1,000 technicians.

    Business Challenge: Cable ONE recently took on the task of implementing a new field service management

    system to better manage worker activity, schedule and dispatch work, ensure driver safety, and integrate with

    other back-office systems. After choosing the Oracle Field Service Cloud (ETADirect) product by Oracle (TOA),

    Cable ONE needed to overlay GPS coordinates

    of their vehicles within that solution to

    take full advantage of routing and dispatch

    capabilities. Previous automatic vehicle location

    (AVL) providers did not meet expectations or

    technical requirements.

    As part of Cable ONE’s efforts to ensure driver

    safety and lower insurance premiums, the

    organization also sought to improve driver

    behavior among its technician workforce.

    Reducing vehicle idling and curbing unauthorized after-hours use of company vehicles can drastically reduce fuel

    and maintenance costs. These additional benefits offered by a GPS tracking solution also appealed to Cable ONE.

    How it was solved: Cable ONE decided that the GPS Insight Fleet Tracking Solution was the perfect fit. The robust

    features and flexibility of the software, along with its capabilities to easily integrate with other software platforms,

    was what finalized the company’s decision.

    “The first time around, we used a competitor of GPS Insight’s and we didn’t have the reports that we needed.

    Specifically on speed tracking, vehicle idle time and unauthorized after hours use. GPS Insight’s application

    provides us with the ability to track those metrics as well as other metrics,” said Tad Drescher, Manager of Process

    Improvement and Workforce Management at Cable ONE.

    The speed tracking functionality offered by GPS

    Insight provides fleet managers with the ability to

    create alerts for when a driver surpasses a defined

    speed threshold. Within 6 months of deploying

    GPS Insight, Cable ONE was able to improve driver

    behavior by 68%.

    Cable ONE saw a direct correlation in improving

    driver behavior to a double digit percentage

    decrease in monthly accidents. Not only was this a

    great way to show Cable ONE’s dedication to driver

    safety but costs from insurance premiums went

    down as a result of the accident decrease.

    The final requirement for a successful fleet tracking implementation, and the most important to improving the

    business, Cable ONE sought to integrate GPS data with their newly launched Oracle (TOA) Oracle Field Service

    Cloud (ETADirect) platform. Through its expansive list of APIs, GPS Insight offers a robust level of integrations into

    other software programs. “With the GPS Insight data [integrated with Oracle Field Service Cloud (ETADirect)], we

    will know the GPS location of the job and the GPS location of the technician. So we will know when the technician

    closes out a job, we can see if the technician is actually still on site at the house when they close out the job and

    not under a shade tree two streets over, or at the coffee shop. That will help us improve productivity and drive

    compliance,” says Drescher.

    Ultimately, Cable ONE felt that the configurability of the various alerts, automated reporting and integrations

    with other platforms was the best aspect of the vehicle & asset tracking solution and what ultimately lead to their

    decision to partner with GPS Insight.

    When asked what are the best features of the GPS Insight solution, Drescher

    said, “GPS Insight’s strength is their reporting portal. Their ability to easily setup reports as well as email alerts, text message alerts and automatic emailing of reports makes their portal very user friendly. It’s very configurable.”
