Technology is constantly changing, and this is no truer than in the fleet automotive world. Just like a business manager at a finance company relies on programs and systems to help run his troop, the same goes for fleet managers managing a party of cars.
Car fleet management is important because it gives you the peace of mind and benefit of having a company that is well-organized. When great management is in place, the rest of your company can run like a well-oiled machine.
When the process of vehicle tracking (utilizing technology such as telematics) is in operation, you’re able to easily monitor driver activity which keeps your business abreast of what’s happening with workers on the road. With driver management, you can keep the morale of your business in check and improve that satisfaction of your workers, which makes a happier work environment and less expensive turnover.
At Corporate Fleet Services we offer things like DMV record checks to help clients be aware of the driving history of workers. This background history provides the necessary information for proper delegation of employees. We also provide bi-annual reviews of your fleet to search for any problem areas to make sure you’re continuing to save money and are getting the most out of your investment.
But then there’s the technology aspect, such as telematics, that is important to car fleet management as well.
Here’s a look at some popular GPS software that’s designed to make car fleet management much more easier:
ClearPathGPS specializes in GPS technology for the moving and storage, construction, delivery, HVAC, and similar industries. Its software offers great driver behavior monitoring, along with live GPS tracking that includes color-coded thirty-second updates on vehicles. Reporting information is available for an entire year, and fleet managers are allowed to choose from 60 different alerts, graphs, and reports.
GeoTab is touted as an efficient driver management system that seeks to remain compliant with HOS regulations. This software syncs on daily basis odometer readings, and has excellent authentication security systems in place. It’s also easy to self-install.
AUTOsist doesn’t specialize in any particular vehicle niche, but is rather a “one size fits all” tracker. It’s cloud-based and offers fuel tracking, maintenance reminders, records management, and sorting. The software will store insurance information, registration, and custom images, which offers ZIP backup options and more.
RTA Fleet Management:
RTA Fleet Management uses various apps to assist fleet managers by way of inventory management, fuel usage, technician work, asset management, and other operations. It’s also impressive because it keeps track of parts and purchase orders in one location.
Fleet Maintenance Pro:
Fleet Maintenance Pro provides information on when your fleet vehicles are due for maintenance work, and it provides tracking for an unlimited number of vehicles in your fleet. This software is known for its ease of use.
Last but not least is the software Fleetio. This popular car fleet management software provides fuel card automation, and allows managers to track and manage things such as parts, fuel, and vendors. It’s pretty much a one-stop-shop.
