The many advantages of using fleet management software

Fleet management software has come a long way and many of our clients are finding this technology indispensable for running an effective fleet. With solutions that help fleet managers with every aspect of running a fleet from vehicle acquisition to maintenance, cost-saving technologies and making provisions for accidents, it’s no wonder more of our clients are getting on board.

Proof is in the studies

Fleet management software is changing how fleet businesses operate. But you don’t have to take our word for it. According to this 2017 study of American fleet companies on using fleet management software, almost two-thirds of surveyed fleets already have a GPS fleet management system or have used a GPS fleet management system. The financial benefits of this kind of fleet management software was also acknowledged by participants – 66% of fleet managers in the study said they had benefited from using fleet management software.

The survey, 2017-18 Survey of Fleet Operator Interest in MRM Systems and Services, was conducted by CJ Driscoll & Associates, a strategic consulting and marketing research group that interviewed more than 500 American Fleet Managers between April and June 2017.

What are the obstacles?

Asked to break down the biggest obstacles for successfully implementing fleet management software, respondents ranked them as follows:

  • 23% coordinating installation of equipment in fleet vehicles
  • 12% problems with staff education/training
  • 6% acceptance of the system by drivers/employees or contractors

Overall, 80% of Fleet Managers surveyed said they were satisfied with their GPS fleet management systems. Most said they had already recouped the investment they had made in the systems.
