ATLANTA, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- You can't detect radon without special tools — but the consequences can be life threatening. Likewise, a company that can't spot efficiency killers is asking for trouble. Driving conditions, idle time, a timing belt about to snap — numerous conditions can affect the performance and profitability of field operations, yet they aren't always apparent until it's too late.

Certified Radon, a Kansas City firm that performs radon testing for homeowners, builders and commercial developers as well as for mitigation in real estate, covers a large territory and must maintain proficient use of their service fleet or delays can impact real estate closings or cause development conflicts. Moreover, with the high cost of fuel and insurance, the firm wants to gain better control of vehicle performance, maintenance and safety.

The ROAMWORKS application helps them collect real-time data on a multitude of details, including:

  • Traffic patterns (sensing frequent stop-and-go movement, etc.);
  • Vehicle mechanics (oil pressure, fuel efficiency, tire pressure and more);
  • Vehicle service status (e.g., notification of preventive tune ups or parts replacement); and
  • Security (alerting to vehicle theft or driver emergency).

With this high degree of insight, Certified Radon is able to make more cost-effective decisions about service territories, routing, driver training, parts inventory and more. The company can now mitigate behaviors that impact insurance costs, vehicle lifespan and fuel efficiency. For a business focused on healthy air quality, reducing each vehicle's carbon footprint is a welcome benefit.

Travis Siegfried, Owner of Certified Radon states, "It's critical that our technicians are on time to each testing site, as delays can affect everything from residential real estate closing to legal court cases. ROAMWORKS is working with us to make sure our trucks and drivers are safe, efficient and in proper working condition. We've been able to immediately see results when we analyze the reports from within the application, letting us know where we can improve upon throughout our operation."

As client needs evolve, ROAMWORKS can quickly enhance the applications to adapt.
