Joe Gibbs Reveals His Competitive Edge


During his time as the head coach for the Washington Redskins, Joe experienced the value of knowing exactly what every member of his team was doing at every moment of the game. Real-time visibility and insight - that's what wins Super Bowls. Transitioning from football to racing, he learned the same visibility and intelligence were equally critical to winning both on the track and off.

Joe is honored to be the spokesperson for the Spireon FleetLocate System, the industry's leading innovators of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and business intelligence solutions. But more than the spokesperson,he's a FleetLocate user. This racing season, Joe Gibbs Racing has been relying on FleetLocate's trailer and asset intelligence solution to manage our haulers as they've transported our race and show cars across the country. And it's made a different in our bottom line, as well as our competitive edge.

For this year's 36-week racing season, Joe Gibbs Racing haulers have been tasked with transporting three different race teams to a different city every week. I don't have to tell you what a logistical challenge it is keeping track of all these haulers, drivers and cars as they crisscross the nation.

FleetLocate has helped them resolve this challenge. Using FleetLocate's easy-to-read dashboard, online interface, and comprehensive reports, his operations team can see where any one of our haulers is at any given moment. They can tell whether they're on schedule, whether they'll be arriving at a race or show on time, or whether there's a delay and the cause of that delay.

This anytime access to real-time business intelligence allows his team to make faster, smarter decisions about my fleet of haulers and cars. It allows them to see where the issues are, so they can address them. It allows them to respond more quickly to unforeseen obstacles, improve their efficiencies and productivity, save money and save time. And as any racing team owner will tell you, when it comes to staying competitive every second counts.

You see, Joe's team operates much like a pit crew. Timing is everything, and every person on the crew needs to be working seamlessly together to maximize performance and stay in the lead. FleetLocate has equipped Joe Gibbs Racing with a clear advantage not only on the track but in my business. He plans on making FleetLocate a critical part of his winning game plan for many race seasons to come.
