Most people see a commercial truck on the road and think of it as a simple vehicle with service technicians and equipment, or stuffed to the roof with goods, and might wonder where it’s going. Few see it as you do: a high-tech data center on wheels crucial to your company’s success.
In today’s hyper-competitive marketplace, managing every dollar counts. Cost-effectiveness and efficiency in all operations are the keys to growth, and that means managing data is now a requirement. Tools such as fleet management software (FMS) provide a data-driven, comprehensive view of how your fleet is performing and help deliver processes to use vehicles more safely and efficiently.
Too Much Information
Modern fleet vehicles aren’t the big, clunky, gas-guzzling road behemoths of days gone by. These vehicles are now crammed with more technology than pioneering spacecraft. A single fleet vehicle generates nearly 25 gigabytes (GB) of data from over 100 sensors every hour. Through FMS, that data allows fleet managers to create a clear operational roadmap from quickly locating vehicles; to monitoring driving conditions; managing idle time to save on fuel costs; improving driver performance; or reducing accidents. It provides actionable data and insights to correct inefficiencies, identify safety gaps, generate cost savings, and improve customer satisfaction.
According to Allied Market Research, the global vehicle tracking systems market is expected to grow from $17 billion in 2020, to nearly $110 billion by 2030. Adoption of fleet management systems is becoming standard across the industry. The reports they generate provide a wealth of insights about how to use your vehicles more safely and efficiently, but the sheer volume of data can be overwhelming.

Whether you are implementing a safety program, launching a green initiative, or improving your customers’ experience, the GPS Insight data advantage provides a clear blueprint to help you achieve your goals.
The two key components to implementing an effective safety program are GPS Tracking and Smart Camera technology.
GPS Tracking delivers valuable data directly from engine codes that monitor for hard breaking, hard stopping, and speeding violations, to help see fleet operations in real time and historically; reduce fuel, labor, and other operation costs; improve safety and organizational risk; streamline fleet maintenance; and optimize workforce utilization.
Protecting the environment is everyone’s concern, but from a business perspective, being greener can also mean more green in your pocket. Implementing a strong fleet management software solution can significantly reduce idle times and fuel costs across your entire fleet, increasing profits while improving your carbon footprint. It can help route your drivers more efficiently and reduce overall trips, and can also help prevent lead-foot driving, improving fuel efficiency and reducing potential tickets and accidents.
Improving the customer experience can be the difference between a one-time client and a long-term partner. Effective Fleet Service Management solutions provide visuals to customers of jobs completed, eliminating potential disagreements about projects, and tracking software gives customers greater detail of when a crew will arrive, times that crew was on site, and more, which significantly reduces disputes about hours billed. FSM also provides your customers with a simple portal where they can see all past jobs and get details such as job notes, photos, and invoices.
Customize and Use the Data Relevant to Your Business
Every fleet service is different, so solutions must be tailored, not a one-size-fits-all product. Comprehensive and effective FMS can customize data and provide insights that fit the specific needs of your business. While the top 5 reports GPS Insight customers use are a helpful guide, your challenges and data are unique. Tailored FMS reports will provide precise insights that can help create the exact roadmap your business needs to succeed and grow.
