High volume spray guns are widely used for tree and shrub spraying, pest control, and deep root fertilization. VMX tracks the fluid volume resulting in greatly reduced waste and more efficient time management.


Jason is a licensed applicator and account manager for Super Green, a large commercial lawn and tree care service. Super Green employs thousands of people like Jason to manage and service their customers which range from homes to small businesses spread out over the entire United States. The company provides each applicator/account manager a truck that comes equipped with the necessary pumps, tanks, plumbing and application equipment needed to apply chemicals to lawns and trees. GNC spray guns are attached to each of three hose reels in the truck and depending on which nozzle type is installed, can be used for spraying liquid chemicals on turf grass or tree foliage.

Since Super Green decided to implement the VMX tracking device, Jason is able to calibrate his spray equipment easily through the OptiX phone app, he can view where he sprayed which may also indicate over and under sprayed areas that need attention. Once Jason transmits his daily spray logs to the OptiX server, his supervisor, who is located in a different state, can monitor Jason’s progress through the dashboard which shows him the jobs that Jason has executed, the time Jason arrived on the job, the time spent on the job, the quantity of chemical applied, a heat map showing where he sprayed and how much was sprayed. The dashboard also shows the weather conditions while he was spraying and his walking speeds and paths while he was spraying.

Jason’s supervisor can now determine that Jason is doing good work but could use some training on his application walking speeds. The application maps indicate that Jason walks a bit too slow for the chemical mixtures he is applying which is causing him to over apply the desired chemicals. The chemical Jason is applying is very expensive and the OptiX dashboard is suggesting that he is over-applying the chemical by 3% which costs the company an average of $2000 per year. After retraining Jason, his customers are more pleased with the quality of their lawns and the company is very pleased at the money they are saving.
