Is your fleet management provider saving you time and money, and can it continue to do so well into the fourth industrial revolution?
According to Tom Sloan, director of telematics and safety products for Donlen, mapping and driving behaviour is becoming a common product offering among telematics service providers. The focus is therefore, shifted to sophisticated feature sets, data integration and meaningful execution that assists in increased fleet management productivity.
“Telematics usage is only going to increase over time as the technology improves and expands. As government regulations become more and more strict, we will see an increased awareness in fleets needing telematics solutions to manage fleet costs and compliance with regulations,” said Bob White, vice president, operations at Automotive Resources International (ARI).
Fleet Managers require detailed data to be able to make effective fleet management decisions. The detailed data should assist a fleet manager in effective decision making that will save money on operational costs. With Globaltrack’s driver performance reports, fleet managers can gather data on the driving behaviour of drivers, to determine if bad driving are eating into a company’s profit.
Fleet Management Companies will need to act as big data experts, assisting clients in meeting specific company goals, this is according to Dan Shive, vice president of risk management services with LeasePlan USA.
Globaltrack’s Growth Consultancy team provides an efficient approach to fleet issues, and help organisations to look at the actual make-up and people of their operations, coming up with solutions that are tailor-made to suit the organisation’s goal.
