FAQs Fleet Management Software
The purpose of a fleet management system is to provide not just an overview but also a drill-down capability of up-to-date information. Managers get an accurate insight into vehicle diagnostics, geolocation, and quick identification of driver unsafe behavior. This helps to reduce manager workload and allows staff time to focus on other critical business areas.
Much of the real-time data is made possible because of the inclusion of GPS technology in all trucks. When the technology is plugged into a vehicle’s dashboard it can collect data from all parts of the vehicle. For instance, fuel usage and wastage metrics. The fleet management system also has workflow automation such as service and maintenance reminders.
There are 7 key criteria to be evaluated when choosing trucking software. These are user-friendly intuitive interface, ease of discovery, ease of integration across devices, customizable functionality for each business needs, real-time data, security, and reliability of the provider.
Real-time fleet tracking in transport management software gives so much more than just the capacity to keep an eye on your drivers; it can also give you the power to safeguard your vehicles and other priceless assets. Vehicles equipped with GPS tracking systems typically are more easily tracked and retrieved if stolen and sustain less damage.
