5 Misunderstandings About Adopting a Fleet Management Systemby Concox Garin Marketing Manager
Have you always wanted to integrate a software system to improve the operation of your fleet, but skeptical about how much it can do for you? Here are 5 misunderstandings about the use of a fleet management system.
1. High Implementation Cost
Expect an increase in your profits by integrating a fleet management system. Money saved on fuel consumption, idle prevention, reckless driving and unnecessary maintenance reduces operating expenses.
Similarly, with greater security measures, fewer insurance claims mean lower insurance premiums. Most insurance companies offer discounts if a company uses a reliable management system for its fleets. Better security also minimizes the possibility of theft and loss.
2. Difficult to implement
There is always the first time when something is going to be done and it is generally never easy. However, the implementation process is simplified with the support of an expert from the solution provider. In a short time, you will become an expert in the use of the system.
3. Shows a lack of trust between the driver and the manager
Trust builds each other. Fleet managers are responsible for communicating the company's intention to implement a fleet management system. That is, it must say that it revolves around driver safety, savings and increased efficiency.
On the other hand, drivers should see the implementation of the system as a tool for driver safety and productivity. That is, they should not incite distrust between the driver and the manager. With mutual trust, fleet managers and drivers benefit from having the system.
4. It can be replaced by a fleet manager.
The fleet management system does not replace the fleet administrator nor can the fleet administrator replace the system. The system helps the administrator see important vehicle data with an easy to understand dashboard. Its ability to provide real-time data allows the manager to make decisions instantly when a strange event occurs.
Time translates into money. With a fleet management system that automatically tracks vehicle locations and stores data, fleet managers no longer have to do it manually. Fleet managers can now focus on what is most important, meet the needs of their customers. The overall productivity of fleet managers at work will increase significantly.
5. It does not benefit small fleets
The fleets of any size can benefit from implementing a fleet management system. As a fleet manager, knowing the status of your fleet through an integrated platform eliminates the need to call fleet drivers individually to verify them. Here, you save a lot of time and money. Regardless of whether you own 10 or 10,000 items in your fleet, you can expect a 15% increase in your annual income.
