Companies that provide services like deliveries, freights, and transportation of goods can benefit from using fleet management software. This software was developed to enhance the quality service of the company and to assess and provide data on what needs to be done and improved to make the services more effective.
Fleet management software will have a synced GPS tracker for cars installed on each vehicle that is part of the fleet. Each tracker is linked and synced to the system along with the driver’s information. Using only one platform to streamline everything - vehicle information and status (if it needs maintenance), the driver’s details, customer details, and real-time location of the package will be synced to the system for better management
Having and using fleet management software with your company will increase your productivity and efficiency. It will also reduce operational costs because you will be forewarned if there are physical maintenance issues that need to be addressed like if a tire needs to be replaced or if the engine needs maintenance - these will be pointed out in the system instead of later finding out and the issue has gone bigger or a driver got compromised because of not seeing the issue beforehand.
Fuel can also be saved and managed because routes are pre-planned and shorter and quicker routes can be taken by the drivers. Limiting roads to be taken is also possible. Drivers taking unnecessary routes can be seen and the system can also report who and which vehicle it was through reports. The driver’s behavior and idle time can also be reported. This way, productivity and efficiency issues can be addressed properly and the fleet manager or the company can decide on things with the information provided by the system and make changes with it.
With Fleet Management Software helping you out manage your teams; you will see which days or weeks that you can add more dispatch jobs or decrease them. Reports can be made by the hour, daily, or weekly so they can be easily tweaked for better productivity.
