Small business car fleets must be able to track and manage all fleet data to succeed, but gathering complete fleet visibility can be challenging with outdated systems and inadequate protection. Fleet management software helps enable managers to easily track each aspect of their small business car fleet. Here are some of the biggest challenges small business car fleets are facing, and how artificial intelligence and vehicle security technologies can help with the management and security process.
Automate Fleet Processes
It is very critical for your business to keep vehicles on the road and expenses under control. This can be hard for smaller business fleets that use outdated tracking methods, like spreadsheets and paper. Fleet managers are usually too bogged down in manual data entry to really track and manage all of their assets. To alleviate these issues, many fleets are now leveraging fleet management software. This is great for automating fleet processes and streamlining data as well. Artificial intelligence implemented within a proper fleet management software can assist in real-time inspections, managing maintenance costs, and utilization. You can also create automated processes that save you time and let you focus on other areas of your fleet that you must improve.
Manage Problems with Electronic Vehicle Inspections
Regardless of the fleet size, you are responsible for ensuring your drivers are completing the proper vehicle inspections and keeping all of your assets safe and compliant with state or country regulations (if you are doing international travel). In addition to compliance, vehicle inspections are also one of the first steps in creating a more robust preventive maintenance program, by uncovering any issues with your vehicles to jumpstart the repair process. Vehicle security technologies, like transportation security systems, can help you locate any external issues that might lie within one or a few of your car fleet vehicles. By implementing this vehicle security, you are giving yourself an extra layer of protection just in case something happens to go wrong along the way of management. It can get hard with so many units to look after.
Measure Assets and Health with Configurable Reports
As a business fleet manager, you should always be tracking and measuring your asset performance consistently to ensure your fleet is still on top of its game. Keeping that in mind, it can be tricky to keep track of so much data without data visibility. Consider implementing some artificial intelligence in your data entry software to help with the user-based, identification data.
