Any company or individual that owns vehicles such as sedans, trucks, buses, and motorcycles, to name a few, face the challenge of maintaining a deteriorating asset. Given that vehicles depreciate in value, a fleet management system has the ability to prolong the useful lifespan of your fleet. It provides fleet operators and individuals valuable data regarding one’s fleet utilisation and operational efficiency which can translate into real world monetary and manpower savings when applied correctly.
Some common challenges fleet operators face:
- Visibility - Lack of information on fleet location and utilisation status leads to operational challenges where planning and scheduling can be negatively affected.
- Safety & Compliance - Poor driving behaviour and maintenance of assets leads to challenges such as the possible endangerment of lives due to reckless driving and equipment failure.
- Operational Costs - Rising fuel, maintenance and manpower costs leads to poor business viability and can hinder the ability of a business to scale if left unsupervised.
