Metrics to optimise fleet efficiency

 There are many ways that you can improve your fleet efficiency by using metrics. You might be surprised at the range of ways you can get a return on your investment from outsourcing your fleet management. From maintenance to fuel management, using telematics and our other solutions, we help you optimise your business and make your life easier. 

Intelligent Fuel Management

This is one of the most dramatic ways that Avis Fleet can reduce your costs and help optimise fleet efficiency. Fuel theft and fuel fraud have a big impact on your fleet’s bottom line and many of the anti-crime devices available on the market do not stand up against sophisticated criminals who constantly find new methods to commit this crime. Intelligent Fuel Management (IFM) is a comprehensive fuel management solution that has made inroads into combatting fuel fraud.

IFM has a range of unique features including warning indicators for excessive fuel consumption, low fuel consumption, suspect low odometer readings, suspect high odometer reading, static odometer readings, tank capacity exceeded, weekend refuel, suspect registration number, suspect consumption norms and out of boundary fuel stations. Daily fuel alerts will inform you via email and go out to a designated person in your company. They are also sent to petrol stations, oil companies, banks and third party organisations. Our data has an above 90% accuracy resulting in a direct cost saving for our customers.

Managed Maintenance

This service includes keeping track of which vehicles require servicing and making sure that only genuine and necessary maintenance takes place. The Managed Maintenance product takes care of these time-consuming tasks. We have specially trained technicians who man the call centre. Every vehicle’s history is recorded in our database with extensive data of parts, labour and manufacturer service operations, all ensuring the manufacturer’s guidelines are properly followed. We will ensure that work that falls under the warranty is appropriately covered and service and maintenance plans are also carried out. We will also take care of other time consuming activities such as checking supplier job cards and invoices, providing consolidated  tax invoices every month, providing exception reports, making monthly fleet reports and providing monthly management reports.

Telematics

Another way of improving fleet efficiency is by using telematics. Telematics can help Fleet Managers keep track of many aspects that are related to the effective running of their businesses. From using GPS to making sure that drivers are taking the most efficient routes, to monitoring speed, excessive idling and harsh braking. This information is important not only for reducing running costs but also helping determine the causes of accidents or bad driving behaviour and helps managers determine what preventative training is required.
