A good fleet management solution helps you drive improvement, eliminate risks and monitor fleets in a very effective manner. However, an important decision here is to determine which solution is right for your business, and a crucial point to remember is ‘need over investment’.

When implementing an enterprise telematics solution and fleet management system, it is important to measure how this can affect your bottom line. We understand that the solutions in question are directly linked to productivity, operational excellence, and company policy compliance. More importantly the solution you purchase impacts any deviations in business objectives, finding solutions to real-time problems, and the associated costs. So, here are some of the major factors to consider before you purchase the best fleet management platform for your business:

○ Policy Compliance

The right fleet management solution will meet all the minimum compliance requirements for IFTA, DVIR, ELD, and more. The solution shall also be future proof and constant updates and tweaks need to be implemented to meet the changing business needs and maximize effectiveness.

○ Safety & Driver Behavior Monitoring

When evaluating your fleet management solution “fleet safety” is key, a  solution with focus  on driver behavior tracking and real-time alerts in unusual events is always the best to opt for. Additionally, some of the top fleet management solution providers, like Tangerine, provide tailored training programs that help businesses train their employees for effective management.

○ Efficient Fleet Operations

Modern telematics provides companies with the intelligence to run more efficient fleet operations. Tracking vehicles, increasing driver productivity, and encouraging better driving habits is core.

Tangerine’s fleet management platform provides insightful reports on driver behavior monitoring. Predictive and preventive maintenance allows fleets to reduce the likelihood of expensive repairs and costs.

Gut instincts do not work in critical business scenarios. A fleet management solution should help you make decisions based on the data from customizable reports to identify fleet trends and areas of improvement.
