Are you seeing the full picture?

By Holly Dempster November 17, 2020

There’s no way to complete a puzzle unless you have every piece. The same is true of managing your fleet. There’s no way to get a complete picture, without every piece of information.

This is only possible when you monitor every one of your assets, from vehicles to powered assets such as cranes and even non-powered assets like trailers.

When you track every part of your mobile operation – your people, your vehicles and your equipment – you are armed with the knowledge to make fast decisions and work smart.

So if you’re not tracking every asset in your operation, here’s why you should be…

Get total visibility

Without total visibility, you’re working blind – partially at least. Blind spots are a drain on your organisation – on your time, your efficiency and ultimately, your profitability.

To make fast, intelligent decisions, you need to know exactly where your assets are and what they’re doing.

With an asset tracking solution in place, you can quickly view the location, status and activity of any asset in a few clicks. With this information at your fingertips, it’s easy to allocate resources, spot trends and manage your mobile workforce.

Master maintenance

When it comes to vehicle maintenance, it’s best to find a problem before it finds you. When left undetected, what started as a minor issue can quickly result in expensive repair bills and extended vehicle downtime.

When you deploy asset tracking, you can easily monitor usage to pre-empt routine servicing and repair – helping to keep your vehicles, machinery and equipment in peak condition.

With a comprehensive fleet management solution, you can also create reminders for scheduled maintenance, and part replacement, and log service data to improve future diagnostics and repairs.

Step up security

When you monitor all vehicles, equipment and assets, you will know that everything is in its right place – safe from harm.

A comprehensive fleet management solution allows you to place virtual perimeters around real-world locations, to help keep your assets within permitted routes and sites and outside of unauthorised areas.

When you add asset tracking to your fleet management solution, you can also monitor the live and historical location of all vehicles and equipment, to confirm they are only ever used at permitted times, by permitted personnel, for permitted tasks.

Boost efficiency

Transparency facilitates efficiency – you know exactly where everything is, what it is doing and when it is doing it.

With this information to hand, you can spot inefficiencies, identify underused assets and drive efficiency across the board.

Monitoring the daily activity of each asset can also help you plan efficient routes and uses for your vehicles and equipment. Plus, tracking actual asset use on individual jobs enables accurate and timely billing.

Monitor every moment

Asset tracking gives you full visibility of your operation, helping you to eradicate blind spots and make fast, smart decisions.
