More Efficient Staff
Fleet management software helps operations run more efficiently. It allows fleet managers to track labor hours to monitor how much time is being spent on each job and to identify where workflow changes can make the operation more productive. Fleet management software also allows staff members to access Work Orders, allowing technicians to quickly be assigned jobs and for fleet managers to monitor how many WOs are open or pending. Fleet management software also provides quick access for staff members to check on-hand parts inventory. This allows technicians to view if needed parts are in stock before beginning a job.
Improve Preventative Maintenance Program
Fleet management software can help operations avoid untimely breakdowns by improving their preventative maintenance program. PMs can be pre-scheduled on vehicles for times when it’s convenient to perform maintenance on the asset. Operations can run reports to determine which vehicles are due for PM, and when. This helps fleets identify which assets are overdue for services. Within the software, operations can also store important vehicle information, like records from previous inspections and warranty information. This helps technicians instantly access vehicle and repair histories and keep all notes in one place.
Better Manage Costs
Operations can use fleet management software to better track costs associated with fuel, parts, tires, maintenance and more.
Fuel can be one of a fleet’s largest expenses, and software can help manage those costs. Using the RTA platform, fuel costs can be entered through the software, allowing odometers and hubometers to remain up-to-date. This can help manage costs and keep preventative maintenance on track. It can also help with paperwork later, as the reports can be used for billing and reporting.
The software also helps fleets manage their parts inventory. In the RTA software, parts can be automatically reordered via the platform as they are used in the Work Order system. It also provides warranty tracking, back-order tracking, usage summaries and more.
Fleet managers can better monitor their fleet operations through dashboards and reporting offered through fleet management software. Managers can track costs, Work Order status, parts, vehicle usage and more to keep their fleet running efficiently.
