Sprint M2M Solution Irons Out Logistics Snags
The Sprint Connected Fleet M2M solution is making a Kansas City dry cleaning company more cost-efficient, safe and environmentally friendly.
The video below illustrates how the M2M solution has made a Sprint fan out of Joe Runyan, owner of Hangers Cleaners. Before meeting with Sprint representatives, Runyan was frustrated with trying to implement better methods for his van drivers to transport dry cleaning quickly, safely and smartly.
Runyan learned about Sprint Connected Fleet during a casual lunch last October with Sprint employee and friend Brad Frazier. The two talked about the logistical challenges of managing numerous vans traversing the city when Frazier introduced the business owner to our connected fleet package.
“He immediately liked it so I took the lead to Marketing, which then had Amy Gregovich (Sprint Business Account Executive) meet with Joe,” Frazier said.
Gregovich and Sprint Solutions Sales manager Dave Turissini visited Runyan and signed a deal a few weeks later.
“Joe loved the simplicity of the plug-and-play Geotab GO6 device,” Gregovich said. “Other companies offered similar tracking technologies, but cumbersome fixed hard box installations were required.”
Runyan also liked the environmental benefits of the solution.
“We’ve stopped needless idling of some of the vans in the parking lot each morning,” he said. “We take pride in being the most eco-friendly dry cleaner in the Kansas City area.”
Sprint also takes pride in being an eco-friendly company. For the past two years, Newsweek magazine ranked Sprint #3 among America’s Greenest companies, due in part to our sustainable business practices and developing technology solutions that help our customers mitigate their impact on the environment.
Employees are often the best ambassadors for our M2M solutions. If you have relatives, friends or acquaintances who own businesses with fleets that could benefit from Sprint Connected Solutions, contact Turissini at 913-226-0297, or Dave.Turissini@sprint.com.
