5 Reasons to Use Fleet Management Software in 2020

29 Jan 2020

Fleet management software is a critical component of fleet success for fleets of all shapes and sizes. If you operate a fleet, these are five major reasons to utilize the benefits of fleet management software in 2020 and beyond.

  1. Improve Fuel Economy for Your Fleet

The Washington Post reports that fuel accounts for approximately 40 percent of fleet expenses in the U.S. Can you imagine what a difference it would make for your bottom line to decrease those costs? Even small savings in fuel expenses can have huge results when multiplied across your entire fleet. The more vehicles in your fleet, the bigger those savings can be. Even small fleets can benefit from this, however, as profit margins are often slimmer from fleets with few vehicles, making the savings even more productive.

  1. Improve Vehicle Maintenance

Fleet management software allows you to automate vehicle maintenance scheduling. The software simply tells you when maintenance is required and what kind of maintenance your vehicles mean. Keeping your maintenance on target and on track helps you to keep your vehicles operating more efficiently and helps to extend the life and operational value of your vehicles. Additionally, it prevents accidents and maintenance-related breakdowns.

  1. Improve Driver Safety

Unsafe drivers put everyone on the road, your equipment, your cargo, and your reputation on the line. GPS fleet management software can send automatic updates when drivers speed, drive aggressively, swerve, weave, brake hard, and even deviate from their assigned routes so you can address the problems right away.

  1. Improve Customer Satisfaction

Happy customers keep your business going month after month. Fleet management software allows you to schedule deliveries, appointments, etc. much better than has been possible in the past. This allows your customers to plan their days better and makes them much happier with your performance and the services you provide.

  1. Easy ELD Compliance

Fleet management software helps you to comply with legal requirements related to reporting hours of service for your drivers. Most fleet management software is compliant, meaning drivers only need to log in and out as appropriate and the software records all the relevant information, including dates, times, and locations and miles traveled.

The bottom line is that fleet management software goes a long way toward making you, your fleet drivers, your customers, and Uncle Sam happy. What could be better than that moving forward into a new year and a new decade?
