Manage fuel and maintenance costs
Trying to maintain and fuel your fleet on an as-needed basis can feel very similar to shoveling the walkway while it’s still snowing. To effectively and efficiently keep up with fluctuating vehicles needs, a fleet management dashboard will provide you with the transparent view you need.
Real-time visibility into fleet
Knowing the status of your fleet empowers your company to make the real-time changes it needs to in order to hit target metrics. Periodic reports can only capture a static view of your operational strengths, which means that changes will only occur after the fact.
Improve driver safety
Fleet management is not just about keeping your vehicles in great working order - it ensures the people driving them are safe, as well. Poorly-maintained vehicles can endanger your drivers on the road. Keep up with important safety alerts to keep your vehicles running smoothly, and your drivers safe.
Even with proper maintenance, you will still need visibility into over-time metrics to determine if your fleet vehicles are actually delivering optimal performance. Your in-house reporting may not be granular enough to capture this information. Therefore, it’s important to make fleet management a vital tool for vehicle tracking.
Maintain safe and reliable vehicles
A broken vehicle is a vehicle that needs to be replaced which only means one thing: More resources spent on new equipment rather than putting it towards company growth. When there is an automated ongoing "eye" on your vehicles through fleet management, you're more likely to become aware of vehicle issues before it becomes completely disabled.
Longer vehicle life spans
Fleet management systems can notify drivers of mileage indicators, as well as other performance indicators. This ensures that the vehicles are properly taken care of resulting in a longer, more rewarding life on the road.
Higher customer retention rates
Consumers benefit from a fleet management portal, too. By logging into the portal, the tracking of goods makes delivery both efficient and effective. With real time GPS Tracking, customers can rely on the technology for status updates as opposed to repetitively calling to find out approximate arrival times. Ultimately, by increasing customer satisfaction you secure the best chance at retaining valued business.
Increased driver satisfaction
Is your goal to reduce the manual labor of your drivers? Just like any job, your employees most likely have a lot on their plates. Fleet management solutions will help to enhance day to day experience thereby increasing driver efficiency.
Eliminate employee fraud
Handwritten (and sometimes questionable handwritten) time sheets are no longer necessary with fleet management solutions. Remove the guesswork and let the software do the work while mitigating potential discrepancies.&l
