The Value of Fleet Data

Whether you have one or 1,000 vehicles in your fleet, it is important to keep your records close at hand. Even in our digital world, many fleet managers still rely on spreadsheets, paper filing or even Post-it notes to track important vehicle maintenance, fuel, expense and performance information.

Simply put, Post-it notes and Excel spreadsheets don’t work. Not only is paper-based reporting easily misplaced or discarded, these tracking methods make team collaboration extremely difficult. Attempting to collaborate on a report with multiple team members could leave you with numerous versions of a document or incorrect and outdated data. Even worse – what if an employee quits without handing over their closely-held information?

Become a Better Fleet Manager

As your fleet grows in size, even the simplest of fleet management tasks can become time-consuming and exhausting. What may be manageable with one or two vehicles quickly becomes overwhelming with scale.

Properly maintaining your fleet and staying on top of every detail with structured processes, however, can save you time, money and a lot of headache. With the correct processes in place, you can turn an exhaustive task into a well-oiled machine.

Benefit of Telematics

There is a side of telematics that is one of the industry’s best-kept secrets. If more widely known, it would make big news. The fact that’s not well-publicized is how telematics can be used for the greater good.

Many understand how telematics can help businesses increase productivity, lower operational costs, increase fuel efficiency, improve vehicle health, strengthen compliance, and improve customer service (the list goes on and on). We have already explain the benefits on adopting a fleet management solution previously here.  It’s time that people know about the tremendous potential of telematics for making the world a safer, cleaner, and more prosperous place. The benefits go beyond fleet owners, operators, and drivers — to society at large.

The data that can be collected through telematics is incredibly valuable for identifying trends and making improvements. What is especially unique about telematics data, as captured with a platform like Geotab, is the great variety and vast amount of it that can be captured.

How a Fleet Management solution can benefit your business.

In this demanding era we live, everything changes rapidly. It is commonplace because of the multiple obligations faced both personally and professionally, unwittingly to stagnate. Stagnation prevents us from being able to follow the latest technological advancements, which then leads for our business to remain in an idle situation and give the competitors an advantage. In order to prevent such a catastrophic situation for our business and ourselves, we have to keep going; to adopt the latest advancements and cope with the needs of the era. We have to invest in to new technologies that would be beneficial either in short or long term.

Such a tremendously guaranteed investment is to install a fleet management solution at your business vehicles. It really doesn’t matter if you have one or a hundred of them, it has to do with the fact that you actual take control of your assets and you optimise the way you and your employees used to work until now. I really could write enough paragraphs to make your eyes bleed, but I prefer to sum up the key benefits of a Fleet Management solution.

What is a GPS Tracker?

At a glance a GPS Tracker is a device that records and stores the location of a vehicle or a person in real time. A GPS tracking system can work in various ways. From a commercial perspective, GPS devices are generally used to record the position of vehicles as they make their journeys. Some systems will store the data within the GPS tracking system itself (known as passive tracking) and some send the information to a centralized database or system via a modem within the GPS system unit on a regular basis (known as active tracking) or 2-Way GPS.

A passive GPS tracking system will monitor location and will store its data on journeys based on certain types of events. So, for example, this kind of GPS system may log data such as where the device has traveled in the past 12 hours. The data stored on this kind of GPS tracking system is usually stored in internal memory or on a memory card, which can then be downloaded to a computer at a later date for analysis. In some cases the data can be sent automatically for wireless download at predetermined points/times or can be requested at specific points during the journey.
