4 reasons why you should consider managed fleet software

Once you've decided that fleet management software is the right option for you, there are still choices over which type of implementation is best.

Here are some of the benefits of a managed fleet software service, which is where you outsource the day-to-day running of your program to a provider.

Expert support

Having outsourced fleet software management means you can take advantage of expert support from a team of dedicated IT professionals.

This can be particularly useful if you don't have a big IT department at your business, or want to avoid the expense of training your in-house staff.

Similarly, there is no requirement to spend lots of capital upfront for on-site implementation and integration, which can be costly and time-consuming.

Enhance procurement and disposal management

With the right provider, you can enhance your procurement and disposal management by tapping into an Australia-wide dealer network.

An outsourced service gives you the information you need to implement optimal vehicle changeover schedules, ensuring your buying and selling performance is streamlined for the best cost savings.

Accident management

Utilising a service that incorporates full accident management means you can call your provider 24 hours a day when unforeseen collisions or other problems occur.

At-scene management puts your drivers' safety first, while ensuring proper process compliance is adhered to.

You can also benefit from an end-to-end service that starts at the incident and covers procedural advice and recommendations for the preparation of insurance documents.  

Better fuel management

Fuel costs can be considerable for fleet managers, but with the appropriate outsourced service you can drastically reduce your expenditure.

Efficiency is measured by monitoring actual fuel consumption against manufacturer's vehicle specifications.

Your provider should offer you a fuel file that reports on individual vehicles, drivers, departments and costs centres, giving you maximum visibility.
