Snitch Inc helps keep the YMCA on track
Owning 11 vans is no small task for the YMCA Tauranga. There’s the daily logistics, fuel, maintenance costs, insurance, registration and ensuring that all the vehicles are delivering our precious cargo – our participants – safely and efficiently.
Thanks to Snitch Inc, a New Zealand owned and operated business specialising in GPS vehicle tracking, managing these tasks got a whole lot easier.
As part of its efforts to be a responsible corporate citizen, Snitch installed its state of the art, Armada high resolution GPS tracking units in each YMCA van. With the click of a mouse, the Y can get real time information about the location of each van, what speed they’re going, and how many kilometres they’ve travelled.
“We’ve got a fantastic product and we’re really proud to be sharing it with such a great organisation as the YMCA Tauranga,” said Jeremy McLean, Snitch’s Business Development Director. “Our units enable fleet owners to concentrate more on their core business. In this case it means the Y can focus more on helping youth and community. For us here at Snitch, that is a very worthwhile mission.”
From the YMCA’s perspective, the partnership has already seen improved service, better timekeeping, less paperwork and a more accurate cost analysis of its fleet.
“We’re a very mobile organisation and vehicles are one of our largest assets,” said Amy S. Thaler, YMCA Tauranga’s CEO. “Being able to more effectively look after those assets, as well as be able to see where our vans are at any given time is a powerful tool. It also means that the drivers of our vans are even more accountable for the manner in which they deliver our cargo, regardless of whether its kids, kayaks or frozen meals.”
In addition to providing geographic information, each Armada unit assists with real time vehicle diagnostics by either texting or emailing the YMCA with warnings about low batteries, excessive G force, alarm activations or if a maximum speed has been exceeded.
“Installing Snitch’s units has been as much about safety as it is fleet management,” adds Thaler. “It is imperative that we have safe and reliable vans. After all, the valuable lives of our participants and staff depend on our vehicles starting first go and performing as they should.”
About YMCA Tauranga
To us, it’s all about showing your spirit. Ask yourself, when was the last time you showed yours?
Most people hold tightly onto theirs, often too shy to release it. Some people let their spirit run wild, and sometimes have to rein it in- and we meet tonnes of people who have just never been shown how to find theirs. You also get the occasional person who reckons they are just saving their spirit for later.
At the YMCA we work with people to help find their spirit, so they can make the most of their experience and unleash their potential on the world around them.
