It’s your choice. You can enhance driver quality of life today or wait for the next technology that might improve recruiting and retention. But there is already a proven solution. With satellite TV driver entertainment is reliable and less costly.
You’re already buying late model trucks, and offering better pay and benefits packages along with favorable routes and schedules. However, as you probably already know, improving a driver’s quality of life on the road is just as important for any successful driver recruiting and retention program.
For a growing number of fleets, the key to that success is onboard entertainment that is as similar as possible to the technology a driver has at home, including the choice of entertainment devices. For example, the viewing experience on a TV screen is closer than anything — especially a laptop, tablet or smartphone— to what’s found at home.
Equally important is content. Drivers are consumers, at home and at work in a mobile environment, so the ability to offer as much of the same content they would find at home is essential to their satisfaction with your entertainment choices on the road.
The limitations to mobile devices that rely on cellular service and Wi-Fi systems are also well known. In rural environments especially, cellular service is not always available or reliable and Wi-Fi networks at truckstops also tend to be unreliable and insufficient for large numbers of users.
Today, satellite is the only technology that works reliably for driver entertainment systems in trucks. It is also the only one that will provide reliable, cost effective service for the next five or more years. Satellite is not a thing of the past, it is not going away, and it will continue to play a key role in driver entertainment technology.
That’s why EpicVue continues to leverage satellite technology to provide an entertainment solution that has the connectivity and the content that your drivers want, need and deserve. Nowhere else can they find the amount of content that is available on EpicVue, including the best in live sports, movies and entertainment with over 100 channels of programming, and premium channels such as HBO and Showtime as well as NFL Sunday Ticket.
At EpicVue we also have your bottom line in mind. We’ve had one monthly rate that’s less than $50 that hasn’t changed for the past four years. We also don’t believe in teaser rates that offer low costs to start and much higher prices soon afterward.
Any effective driver recruiting and retention program includes addressing driver entertainment needs. Driver entertainment technology is constantly evolving, and the way drivers access and use on-board entertainment services is changing as well. But why wait for tomorrow’s technology?
Satellite TV is a proven solution for now and for the future. With it you can bring reliable, less costly entertainment into the driver environment, and make great strides toward maximizing their quality of life on the road and improving retention.
