4 resolutions for a successful 2020

By Simon Austin January 10, 2020

New Year’s resolutions may usually be associated with weight loss or exercise regimes but it’s not just individuals who use this time of year to set goals.

Businesses up and down the country are marking the turn of the decade by setting out resolutions of their own.

Whether it’s growth, savings or diversification, studies show that clearly defining your goals can greatly increase your chances of achieving them.

With that in mind, here are four simple New Year’s resolutions that could have big benefits for your business.

Get total visibility 

Without a complete picture of your operation, it’s impossible to make truly informed decisions. Gaps in your knowledge could lead to missed opportunities and hidden inefficiencies which may impact productivity and profitability.

Make 2020 the year you close these gaps and get a complete picture of your operation with fleet management technology.

With a fleet tracking solution in place, you’ll get access to detailed information on vehicle health, status and location as well as monitoring key driver behaviours and events. With this data at your fingertips, you can reduce inefficiency, boost productivity and make smarter business decisions.

Incentivise your workforce

Give employee morale a boost this year by implementing a staff incentive scheme for peak performance. Data collected by a GPS system can be used to create scorecards for each driver based on a range of criteria including safety, fuel economy and more.

Simply rank each driver based on their score to create friendly competition among your workforce. Those at the top of the scoreboard can be rewarded for their efforts while those at the bottom can be incentivised to improve.

Reduce your fleet costs 

Every fleet manager wants to reduce their costs. However, it’s often easier said than done.

Find the right solution for your business with our free Fleet Management Buyer’s Guide.

The key to achieving this aim is to break it down into smaller, achievable goals. Making minor improvements across your fleet can soon add up to large cost savings.

Start by tightening up your dispatch and routing process. A fleet management solution can help by automatically scheduling jobs in the most efficient manner based on a range of factors. As well as helping to fit more jobs into the working day, this approach has been shown to reduce average fleet mileage by up to 10%.

Next, start leveraging your data. Whether you run a fleet of five vehicles or 500, your business is creating streams of valuable data every minute of the working day. Make it your resolution this year to put this data to good use.

Fleet tracking solutions can automatically create and distribute key analysis throughout your business. By scheduling easy to understand reports on fuel consumption, driver behaviour, fleet safety and more, you can put valuable data in the hands of every member of your team as soon as they need it – with no additional effort on your part.

This fleet data can also be used to automate and improve key processes from maintenance scheduling to invoicing, timesheets and payroll. 

Make your customers happy

What business doesn’t want to make its customers happy?

With GPS fleet tracking, you can do so with ease. Fleet management technology can help you keep your customers engaged, informed and satisfied.

Live location data for every vehicle in your fleet allows you to quickly assign drivers to new customer requests and offer up-to-the-minute ETAs. This information can also be shared with customers, allowing them to track drivers to the door.

A simple resolution for a successful 2020
