Potential fleets and professional drivers are often curious how much a Mobile Driver Emergency Response System costs?
By Jim Rennie
Purchasing a Driver Emergency Response System is much like purchasing a cell phone in that there are many options available and prices vary, depending on which features you choose.
Just as a cell phone plan may be initially purchased at around $49.95 – with just a basic package – if a customer requests additional features, costs can sometimes exceed well over $600.00 (e.g., a camera, extended battery, texting, email internet access, unlimited data packages, music features, chargers, protective cases, etc.)
Considering that the average American sells or upgrades their cell phone within the first four years of purchase, why do so many cell phone purchasers purchase additional – and sometimes costly – features?
The answer is simple: Most customers want what they want when they want it. Customers hate regrets, and it’s why they purchase the features they want upfront.
Cell phone users who use their phone more than three of four hours a day will want to ensure that their phone will provide them comfort, quality, longevity, and will be easy to use.
The same principles typically apply to most mobile driver emergency response systems customers.
Understanding that users will carry the device on their daily routes and will rely on the emergency response system – as well as selecting the right mobile system with the right options, ensuring maximum safety with minimum maintenance – most customers will choose a system that will make them feel the most secure.
Unfortunately, some customers only focus on the initial price of the system – with the only goal of finding the “cheapest” system on the market – while sacrificing customer support, technical assistance, documented response times, redundancy, multiple security operations centers, market knowledge, system vibration feature, warranty, mobile charging options, wearable’s, cell network connectivity, wifi connectivity, geofencing, ergonomically engineered and designed, multiple fob color options, and more.
