3. Improved Driver Insights
Preventative maintenance and real-time alerts include more than just the vehicle. Driver monitoring solutions can also play a key role in ensuring proper vehicle operation. Unsafe behaviours like speeding and harsh braking can cause unnecessary wear-and-tear on fleet vehicles, leading to more frequent maintenance and vehicle downtime.
With driver performance scorecards, businesses can identify drivers using vehicles sub optimally. From there, additional training or coaching can be provided to reduce unsafe and damaging behaviours. When combined with long-term tracking, fleet managers can set data-driven performance goals with key performance indicators to ensure improvements are made.
4. Pre-Trip Inspections
Thoroughly examining fleet vehicles before each trip can help keep them in good working condition. Digital pre-trip checklists can make this process easier for drivers by conveniently listing items to be reviewed, automatically reporting defects and ensuring compliance with all regulations.
By making the pre-trip inspection process digital, it is also much easier for drivers and fleet managers to keep important information organised. Dates and vehicle identification information, such as license plate numbers, fleet ID numbers, and VINs can all be stored in the software to expedite required inspection and compliance procedures.
5. Digital Recordkeeping
While paperwork is a necessary part of any business, it can often be an inefficient process. By instead storing maintenance records digitally, businesses can retain all relevant information in a centralised location on the fleet tracking software system. This allows for more efficient cost tracking, inventory planning and schedule building.
The TN360 maintenance module simplifies the recordkeeping process for fleet managers with a streamlined solution to common frustrations. Schedule building, maintenance records and important documentation can all be stored conveniently in an easily accessible location, saving time and effort, and as a result, improving business efficiency.
