What is fleet management?
One of the most effective IoT solutions to date must be for fleet tracking and management. For businesses with commercial vehicles, fleet management software, devices and dashboards can dramatically improve efficiency, increase productivity, and reduce costs. A robust, end-to-end solution can also help with operational fleet maintenance, compliance, and employee safety.
Fleet management applications can be designed to integrate data from vehicle tracking systems to significantly impact fleet performance. Depending on the size of the fleet and the business requirements, IoT fleet tracking options can range from market-ready to fully customised solutions. Read about how fleet management can work for your business
The fundamental feature of any fleet management solution is vehicle tracking, whether it be for cars, trucks or autonomous vehicles. The GPS and internet-based applications map, monitor and report on every vehicle’s location so if issues ever occur, they can be resolved quickly to reduce delays.
Building on that, more comprehensive fleet management functions are able to collate engine diagnostics, monitor fuel usage in relation to driver behaviour, provide maintenance reports, store vehicle registration and warranties, advise delivery routes and show nearby petrol stations, road tolls and rest stops.
Monitoring driver statistics is an important requirement for some businesses and can ensure staff are well-rested and taking appropriate breaks. These simple measures can increase productivity and, most importantly, keep the workforce and other road users safe.
With all this valuable data available in real-time and accessible through an intuitive user-interface, the management of vehicles and employees can be streamlined and ensure optimal driver and fleet health and safety. See how Spark has helped Whaiora Whanui Trust optimise staff travel
