“At least 10 more loads a day.”

“It’s saved us one engine already ... probably $15,000 to $18,000 on that one incident.”

“In the past we guessed how much fuel a machine was using ... now we look at an average over time.”

“We were able to recover (a stolen) machine, undamaged, very quickly. No real downtime and no insurance costs.”

“We’ve seen a reduction in operator abuse events of as much as 75%.”

“The percentage of cost savings is almost in double digits.”

“Easier compliance reporting saves me time and money.”
