Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control is Canada’s largest wildlife control company. They specialize in the humane removal and exclusion of urban wildlife from homes and businesses. Bill Dowd, President and CEO, utilizes a fleet of twenty-seven vehicles to provide services across Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.
Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control’s technicians spend a great deal of time traveling to and from jobs. Their vehicles serve a dual role as mobile toolboxes as well as rolling billboards for the company. “Ultimately,” says Bill, “without our trucks, we don’t have a business.”
“With Fleetio, we have been able to notice trends in gas consumption and repair costs. We are also making much more informed vehicle replacement decisions.” - Bill Dowd, CEO
With this priority in mind, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control knew that there had to be a better way of keeping up with their fleet across nine locations. They started a trial of Fleetio in December of 2013 and scheduled an online demo to get a full walkthrough of the software. It didn’t take long before they were up and running.
To make managing the vehicles a more collaborative effort, Bill has twenty-six employees as users on their Fleetio account, with permissions set up according to their roles at the company. Overall, the team has found the system to be very user friendly.
Email reminders keep Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control’s techs up to date on monthly inspections and reports. Fleetio has also made it easy to track mileage and fuel usage, then utilize that data to better control operational expenses.
Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control is expanding with new franchised locations across Canada and the United States. Fleetio will be offered as part of their franchise system.
We have enjoyed working with Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control and are proud to have them as a Fleetio customer.
