Business success and profitability is directly linked to the operational efficiency within a business. In the time sensitive and challenging world of transport and logistics, automated business systems provide management with real time data for safe, informed and efficient decisions to be made.
It’s about having the tools to be proactive within the business, rather than reactive.
GPS fleet management software is a simple way to drive efficiency, improve communication and streamline the workflow of dispatch teams.
DIRECTOR is GPS fleet management software that provides dispatchers with the right information at all times. Saving time without compromising safety in the logistics business is vital to the success of daily operations. The more time you save, the sharper your operation becomes, and the more profit you make.
With automated task management and workflow capabilities, DIRECTOR takes care of the routing process of both simple and complex deliveries in an efficient and profitable manner.
This gives dispatchers time to be strategic, proactive and decisive in their role which can only help the overall performance of the business.
Real-Time Data for Real-Time Decisions
Information should be reliable and easy to absorb. Dispatchers and fleet managers don’t have the space and time to decipher unclear data. They want to know at a glance where their transport is, what the status is on jobs and how their drivers are performing.
GPS fleet management software provides exactly that. A dashboard that gives an overview of all the goings-on in the business on one screen. If management need to dig a little deeper on a specific area or subject, a few simple clicks will pull up the data they need in real-time.
Tailor the dashboard and reporting to suit your business. Program the system for key stakeholders to be automatically emailed or texted specific information or tasks to be actioned.
When the right person within the business has access to quick, easy and efficient data, informed decisions can be made on the go without compromising customer service, safety and profitability.
On the Front Foot
A GPS fleet management system allows a business to be proactive about key efficiencies. When fleet managers have detailed information about where, how and why their fleet of vehicles are being used, they can easily determine which drivers, routing, deliveries and jobs are profitable and just as importantly, which ones are not!
Alerts are real-time updates in the system that signal many different events such as idling, harsh acceleration, speeding, harsh turning and compliance violation. This gives a fleet manager the opportunity to get on the front foot and not only provide training to drivers that need it but create training to focus on specific skills gaps, meaning less time in training and more time back on the road for drivers.
Maintenance and fuel use are two of the biggest costs in the logistics game. The Vehicle Analytics function within DIRECTOR provides fleet managers with information that helps them get proactive about maintenance and fuel.
Services such as brake inspections, tyre rotations and fluid checks can be entered into an automated maintenance schedule, based on engine hours or odometer readings.
Having the capacity to monitor the vehicle status and engine diagnostics of an entire fleet in this way means vehicles are running at maximum efficiency and are out on the road more as an income earning asset.
The Big Picture
Connecting all the elements and data within a business together allows you to work at a highly strategic level which leads to better business planning and development.
DIRECTOR’s Business intelligence tool combines the data from DIRECTOR with back-office platforms. The software can connect vehicle and driver information with payroll, taxation and billing, collating all-important data together in a way that is easy to process and digest.
Exploring all operations of your business leads to results in savings and improved productivity.
Finding ways to reduce costs and improve efficiency is the best way to grow a business. A fleet management system will do just that by giving you real-time data to make educated and informed decisions.
