There are various ways a fleet management system can develop efficiencies for your business so that the daily running of your fleet vehicles becomes a far smoother operation.

Those efficiencies include: lowering costs on fuel and vehicle repairs, improving driver behaviour, meeting compliance requirements, reducing the number of safety incidents and boosting productivity. The overarching aim of a fleet management system is to improve conditions for everyone concerned.

Here are five ways a fleet management system can readily develop efficiencies for your business.

Information at your fingertips

Thanks to data and analysis, a fleet management system is designed to help give you information on your fleet and your drivers. This means you are being given relevant updates on your drivers’ behaviour, engine performance, idling time and maintenance schedules, providing you a timely overview of what is going on.

Fleet’s overall performance

How the vehicle data is provided can also provide valuable insights on the fleet’s overall performance, which in turn can be a welcome insight into operating costs. Having the right information on how the vehicle runs, for example, can add greatly to current and future efficiency goals.

Part of that efficiency is also keeping your fleet in good working order. Wouldn’t it be great to readily know the condition of your vehicles, so you can proactively schedule any servicing required to fix potential problems before they become prohibitively expensive repairs?

It is estimated that fleet managers who are not making the most of this type of data could potentially be paying up to 15 per cent more in operating costs for each vehicle. Few businesses can afford that economic burden in this day and age.

Peace of mind

The installation of telematics allows for peace of mind. It may sound obvious to say this but efficiencies happen far more easily when you know where your vehicles and assets are as it allows you to be more hands-on and proactive.

Boost the number of jobs completed

Thanks to improved dispatch to the nearest vehicle available as well as better route planning, results in your fleet being more likely to save time and increase the number of jobs completed every day.

Enhanced operations

The fifth way is using your data insights to help reduce vehicle wear and tear. Keeping tabs on things like excessive speeding and unnecessary mileage can do this. You can also view activities such as daily route performance, time spent at customer sites and stop durations to help improve operations, if necessary.
