Where tradition meets transition
Mobility in fleet is more than just the movement of people within a business, it’s about how communication, assets, and data move within an organisation. Software companies are now providing solutions to complex industry changes which can facilitate agile mobility. Here are some ways fleet management software can aid mobility:
1) Manage a holistic journey
Implement a solution that connects all stakeholders on one platform. Fleet managers can achieve operational excellence by looking at the whole journey - from charging infrastructure to ordering maintenance parts. This could be drivers undertaking remote inspections on mobile apps to fleet managers analysing productivity in real-time. If you have data on your whole operation, your software will be able to create predictive and pre-emptive maintenance schedules – enabling mobility and asset longevity. This holistic journey should also be accessible on different devices such as tablets and apps to aid in ease of use and accessibility.
2) Digitalise processes into one ecosystem
Digitalising workflows is faster, safer, and creates clear decisions for employees which saves time and money. These digital platforms not only manage assets but the individuals responsible for them – it standardises processes and gives employees the tools to increase their productivity. Organisations should be moving away from best practices in isolated areas – all best practices should be brought together and optimised. Your fleet management system should integrate with all areas of the business – fuel, maintenance, HR, and more.
3) Ownership to usership
Fleet software takes the pain out of vehicle acquisitions and disposals. From your data, you can understand which vehicles need replacing and when. The analysis should also flag when ownership is not the best way forward. If assets are not reaching their full potential, it might be that your company’s methodology needs to transform from an ownership to a usership model, for example, asset sharing or leasing. Your data should also be sharing your fleets’ carbon footprint and giving you recommendations to lower emissions.
For fleets, mobility can increase productivity, streamline processes, and optimise asset usage; often with the added benefit of reducing the company’s environmental impact and saving costs.
