One of the main uses of fleet management systems that you may think of is to track and monitor the vehicles that you have within your fleet. Of course, this is an incredibly useful tool and can have hugely positive implications for your business. However, this isn’t the only positive impact it can have on your business as a whole.

A fleet management system can also help in a variety of other ways, which can make sure that you really get the most from the investment of paying out for this particular service.

It can schedule the work for the day

Knowing how best to schedule the work for the day is a key part of any fleet management system. It allows you to think about the amount of work that you have, the areas that they are in and the drivers that are available. Rather than relying on other methods of scheduling work, fleet management can make it a whole lot easier.

It can locate drivers for emergency work

Sometimes a job is going to come up that needs to be completed there and then. This means that you are going to want to locate a driver who is free to take it on. With a fleet management system, you can do this with relative ease. You will be able to track your drivers, you will know where they are and how likely it is that they can take on this work.

It helps plans routes effectively

Much like scheduling work, planning routes is another important part of the process. Routes will be the bare bones of your drivers’ day and in order to best use their time and of course their fuel too, you are going to want to make sure that you plan these in properly. Having a fleet management system is going to make it a whole lot easier to plan routes and you can make sure that your drivers are delivering the very best service to your customers.

It monitors driver behaviour

We all have trust in our drivers and how they drive. However, it makes sense to monitor driver behaviour and to eliminate any risky driving. Not only does this help with things such as fuel usage, but you can also cut down the chances of your vehicles being involved in accidents or other issues.

It allows for stolen vehicles to be tracked

It isn’t all about performance, fleet management software is also good when it comes to security. You want to make sure that your drivers and your vehicles are kept safe whilst they are working. As you may be at a higher risk of theft, having vehicle tracking is going to mean that you can locate and retrieve any vehicle that is stolen.

Here at Movolytics, our customers and clients have found that they have seen an ROI just 3 months after implementing our fleet management system. So, why not give it a go yourself? You may not see it immediately, but after time you will soon see your investment pay off!
