The primary goal of fleet management is to monitor all vehicle performance and vehicle movement to increase productivity and help run the business smoothly.
Fleet managers are the predominant figure in this area, being in charge of fleet operations and with responsibilities which include fleet maintenance, consumption and cost supervision, among others.
As a general rule, these companies use vehicle telematics or fleet management software as is the case with Eccocar. In this way, efficiency is increased andoperating costs are reduced.
Driver safety. Without a doubt, the first challenge for these professionals is guaranteeing safe behaviour by the driver. It can be difficult, especially when managers are hundreds of miles from the moving vehicle. However, there are many tools that provide this type of data.
Correct follow-up. A fleet manager must know exactly where to find the vehicles at all times to fulfil the previous point, Therefore, it is necessary to have GPS tracking systems.
To reduce costs. Whether through fuel or operating costs, fleet managers have to identify and eliminate any unnecessary expenses making it more profitable and efficient.
As we've seen before, managing a fleet of vehicles can be challenging regardless of fleet size. For this reason, more than 75% of fleet managers trust software focused on this area as indicated by the annual Government Fleet Benchmarking Survey.
