Why is fleet management important?

Jump to content

Fleet management plays an essential role in safety and efficiency. Managing a fleet of vehicles involves many complex aspects, from driver hiring and retention to complying with local and inter­na­tional regulations. To stay on top of daily tasks and compliance deadlines, many businesses use a fleet management solution.

A cloud-based system like Webfleet provides operational visibility for fleets. Vehicle data on fuel consumption, driving behaviour and carbon emissions enables businesses to improve their productivity, safety and sustain­ab­ility. Fleet managers can cut costs and save fuel by leveraging real-time and historical insights on key performance indicators.

With a high-quality telematics solution, fleets connect their vehicles to their fleet management dashboard, making it easy to plan jobs, communicate with drivers and optimise every step of vehicle management.

A fleet management system integrates software and hardware so that fleet operators can manage their vehicles efficiently. The most effective solutions include a range of tools and features that streamline the daily workflow:

  • Fleet management software - Fleet managers log into a cloud-based platform to analyse vehicle data and decide which actions can improve their fleet’s performance.
  • Vehicle tracking devices - Once GPS devices are installed or plugged into vehicles, fleet managers can track vehicle locations in real time. These devices transmit vehicle data to the fleet management dashboard, giving fleet operators visibility on driving behaviour as well as driver avail­ab­ility.
  • Driver Terminals - When connected to profes­sional navigation, these rugged table or mobile phone devices help drivers stay on the best routes. Fleet managers can send job updates to drivers through these devices, which log mileage and business/private trips.
  • Dashcams - Fleet dashboard cameras help fleets keep their drivers safe, prevent accidents and lower their insurance premiums. It’s possible to use the camera as a road-facing recording device only. Webfleet Video complies with GDPR, ensuring maximum data security and driver privacy.

A fleet management system gives you greater visibility and control over your fleet. As a result, it’s easier to cut costs, enhance safety and run more sustainably. See how a fleet management system can help you achieve your business goals:

  • Track vehicle locations - Know the exact locations of your vehicles with precise GPS coordinates.
  • Communicate with your team - Send your drivers job instruc­tions or crucial updates through the Driver Terminal.
  • Monitor driving behaviour - Hardware sensors help you assess behaviours like braking and idling to understand whether your team needs coaching on safer, more economical driving.
  • Satisfy customers - Provide your customers with reliable ETAs and update them as needed on arrival times or delays.
  • Keep drivers on track - Drivers can get real-time driving tips through the Driver Terminal. They can also receive alerts about speed limits and speed camera locations.
  • Comply with drivers’ hours rules - Take the hassle out of compliance with a telematics system that automat­ically records driver hours.
  • Optimise your business - By analysing the data in your fleet management solution account, you can determine how to plan jobs more effectively while ensuring your vehicles are well maintained.
  • Reduce admin time - Avoid time-con­suming and repetitive paperwork tasks across departments. Automated invoices and remote tachograph downloads mean the entire back office can benefit from a fleet management system.
