Executive Outlook: Key Points To Consider When Choosing A Fleet Vehicle Installation Provider

A completely integrated fleet management solution includes a successful installation. Don't forget the old saying, "The feeling of a dollar saved wears off when you have to pay to get the job redone correctly." Save everyone the time, money, and aggravation and do it right the first time. The installation is often the last piece of the project that anyone puts any thought into. Contrary to popular opinion, the installation should be one of the main priorities of a solid project plan. The vehicle installation will be exposed to extremes in temperature, motion, abuse, voltage irregularities, tampering, and vandalism — to mention a few. The vehicle will be the main focus of your new system and functionality. Is it worth saving $30 to $40 on the installation only to lose $100s or $1,000s — or worse yet, a customer — when the system goes down due to a poor quality installation? Do you use a bunch of local providers, or a national installation provider to manage the entire project? Actually, the question should be, do you want to pay for, find, and manage a lot of resources yourself to save a few dollars on the front end, or pay a little more and get the expert support and project management required to make your project a success?
