Challenge

Fleetminder wanted a simple and intuitive way to visualise the locations of all vehicles in its fleets that use Fleetminder GPS devices. Dispatchers needed to display the current locations of all vehicles, and see the actual surroundings of each vehicle, including the streets on its route. Fleet managers wanted to improve efficiency by updating driving routes in real-time, based on data coming in from the vehicles. They were also looking to reduce costs by using GPS to locate vehicles that would soon require maintenance, and scheduling them for service when they were closest to maintenance shops.

Solution

Fleetminder built a Web-based dashboard and solution that visualises vehicle location in real time and generates easy-touse reports monitoring their conditions. Dispatchers and fleet managers use the platform as a simple and intuitive means of monitoring and reporting on all vehicles with updates on their current location, speed and various vehicle attributes. Dispatchers coordinating multiple deliveries can use the system to generate the fastest and most efficient routes, saving time and fuel costs. The system also includes sophisticated tools for monitoring each vehicle in a fleet, including historical information about previously driven routes. Fleetminder hardware also tracks driving attributes, which allows fleet owners to determine the need for vehicle maintenance based on braking habits, distance travelled and tire pressure, among others factors.

Fordeler

  • Drivers spend less time on the road, with employee overtime reduced by 25%
  • Customers can track details about driving habits, which led to a 50% decrease in inefficient driving
  • Companies have been able to reduce the number of deliveries to incorrect addresses by 20%
