Drive your fleet forward with high-tech fleet management solutions
One of the most common challenges businesses face today is that they have no way of knowing how productive and efficient their fleet operation is. Not only is it common, it’s not new. A lack of control over their fleet is one of the key reasons businesses require a fleet management solution.
If you are an organisation that operates large fleets of commercial vehicles, then there should be nothing stopping you from going one step further and applying technology to get a comprehensive overview of your fleet’s performance.
However, fleets require a lot of maintenance and a watchful eye. We understand that under piles of workloads, appointments, and meetings, it often becomes difficult to give your fleet the time and attention it deserves.
That’s why, with fleet management services, you can rest assured that someone is looking after your vehicles so that you can spend more time on the things that matter. Let’s dive deeper into how Nashua’s fleet management solutions offer you visibility into your fleet, and how it solves other problems in modern-day transportation and logistics.
What is fleet management?
For years, fleet management was all about fitting vehicles with trackers. True — keeping track of your vehicles’ location is always a good start, but modern fleet management solutions go way beyond standard GPS trackers.
Nashua takes a holistic approach to fleet monitoring, including a variety of IoT, communication, video and tracking tools to ensure your vehicles are used efficiently and safely, and are well maintained. From fuel costs, vehicle safety, route planning, driver behaviour, vehicle location, and vehicle condition — you will be able access real-time data that provides actionable insights and improves decision-making.
Future-proofing your fleet with fleet management
Fleet management is an essential service today, with more businesses recognising its cost and efficiency benefits than ever before. The specific features of the service depends on your needs. Nashua can tailor our solutions to better address the way that your business operates.
Stolen vehicle recovery
This is the biggest and most recognised benefit for those who choose to add fleet monitoring to their vehicles. Thanks to our sophisticated tracking technology and on-the-ground recovery team partners, you can rest assured that if one of your vehicles does get stolen, you have a better chance of getting it back.
As a business owner, you’ll want to know what is going on in your vehicles at all times. With fleet management, you can do just that. These systems provide a complete and comprehensive overview of your fleet’s status such as location of vehicles, routes followed, and delays caused.
Fuel is one of the largest expenses that your business has to deal with. But with a fleet management system in place, your business can gain more control over the way your employees handle vehicles.We can provide reports on driving behaviour such as fast acceleration, hard turning, harsh braking, speeding and idling. You can use this information to encourage more fuel efficient driving practices.
Vehicle reliability and safety
The most crucial thing in any company is making sure that the working environment is safe. Fleet monitoring has brought on-the-road safety to another new level. Our solutions provide the visibility and intelligence to identify hazards such as risky driver behaviour and dangerous road conditions. Through regular alerts on vehicle conditions, we also help businesses stay on top of regular maintenance, which reduces the risk of breakdowns or accidents.
It’s quite possible that some drivers may not have worked to their full potential when they weren’t being supervised. The presence of in-cabin cameras can often mean employees are aware of being monitored, and will be more productive as a result.
After an accident, you’re required to make an insurance claim. This is where your dashcams come into play. With the footage, you can easily document the incident and validate your insurance claim.
Fleet management – final takeaway
Fleet management allows you to put the responsibility of looking after your fleet into the hands of reliable, professional experts.
