As a small fleet owner, you have a lot on your plate. You need to manage your business, ensure customers are happy and stay on top of your workers and drivers. You know your team is out there doing their job, and for the most part, probably doing what they should be doing. However, a few pieces of information can really help you manage your workers and drivers more efficiently.
What you need to know:
- Where are my drivers and where are they going: You need to know, at any point in time, the exact location of your drivers. This includes working hours and off hours. You need to determine, at a click of a button, if your driver is on the job, or the way to a job, or maybe taking a break. You also need to know how long they have been at a job and how long it took them to get there. Vehicle, fleet and driver tracking is essential to managing your business.
- Where can I save money? It is very likely that you are leaving money on the table. The most common source is excessive fuel usage from idling and inconsistent driving. You must get on top of this immediately and stop it. Another common money saving tool is being proactive about fleet maintenance. This includes conducting regularly schedule routine maintenance as well as addressing engine lights and alerts as they happen.
- How can I improve my drivers’ driving habits? It is very difficult to know what your drivers are doing on the road. However, in the end, you are on the hook for their insurance and for any damage done to the vehicles. It is imperative that you get the data on your drivers. You need to understand who is a safe driver and who is showing risky behavior. For your unsafe drivers, you need to have the data to be able to have a serious conversation with them about safety.
Getting this data at your fingertips is easy. You should not have to buy expensive software or navigate through screens. You should be able to find it all on your phone within seconds. Want to find out more? Contact us at email@example.com
