The Advantages of Fleet Management Systems
Managing an entire fleet involves juggling a variety of different activities at once. As well as fleet vehicle acquisition, financing and maintenance, there’s also driver behaviour and driver safety to think about. After all, fleets operate in complex, risky environments that are highly regulated.
Effective and efficient fleet management benefits commercial fleets of all sizes across key industries – that’s where fleet management systems come into play.
In this article, discover 5 key benefits of fleet management systems and explore our cutting-edge fleet management solutions.
Which industries can benefit from fleet management systems?
Companies spanning a wide spectrum of sectors and industries can benefit from fleet management solutions. The industries that tend to benefit most from fleet management include transportation, distribution and logistics and field service. However, companies that can also benefit from fleet management include construction companies, public utility organisations, and government agencies.
5 benefits of fleet management systems
GPS tracking to manage your fleet with ease
Fleet management software offers improved efficiency, with most fleet tracking systems integrating directly with vehicle tracking devices to give you accurate, real-time data. Implementing fleet management software can give you eyes on every vehicle in your fleet at all times, even if they are scattered across the country. Additional fleet tracking apps give you visibility into fleet operations no matter where you, or they, are.
Get automated alerts and reminders for vehicle maintenance and repairs
Another major benefit of fleet management software is the ability to receive automated notifications, updates and alerts about key aspects such as driver behaviour, vehicle idling, route deviation, etc. You can also set reminders for key things like scheduled preventative maintenance or vehicle repairs. Avoid preventable breakdowns and unscheduled downtime.
Create custom reports to review key data
Analyse vehicle tracking data and statistics with the ability to compile critical data quickly and efficiently. Geofencing or other telematics reports can give you valuable insight into your operations process and how it could be streamlined and optimised to help fortify your fleet.
Manage your fleet’s fuel usage and fuel costs
Another key component of fleet management is fuel management and reducing costs. With the ability to track and monitor the fuel consumption of your commercial vehicles on specific routes or across particular distances, fleet owners can understand which vehicles consume less fuel. What’s more, fleet management software can provide insights into driving habits that contribute to fuel wastage, ultimately helping your business reduce its carbon footprint.
Improve driver safety
Fleet management software usually includes ‘driver management’ or ‘driver behaviour’ features with a video recording component. This way, driver habits and behaviour can be monitored to help improve safety standards and reduce the risk of accidents, injuries and vehicular damage.
