Fleet maintenance management software can benefit organizations in an array of industries with fleets of any size, no matter how small or large. An understanding of these benefits will allow you to make an informed decision as to whether fleet maintenance management software is a wise investment for your organization.
Automated Fleet Maintenance Scheduling
As with other types of CMMS software, vehicle feet maintenance software allows an organization to schedule regular maintenance tasks in advance and in accordance with business requirements. This scheduling capability allows a company to minimize the inconvenience of downtime for a given vehicle. Fleet maintenance software ensures that preventive maintenance is performed on time, keeping your vehicles in peak operating condition and minimizing unexpected repairs.
Robust Fuel Tracking
For fleets, fuel is one of the largest operational costs. Monitor the fuel efficiency of your fleet over time and make fuel management seamless with a fuel module for fleet maintenance software. A fuel module allows you to enter fueling transactions manually, import data from external fueling systems, store fluids in inventory, transfer fluids between warehouses, and more.
Vehicle Maintenance Logs
Should an unexpected breakdown occur with equipment that is a part of your organization’s fleet, the availability of vehicle maintenance logs retained in fleet maintenance software can be an invaluable resource. This will allow a maintenance technician or outside mechanic to understand in the current status of all aspects of a vehicle in full detail. This will lead to increased efficiency in making repairs and a subsequent reduction in downtime for the vehicle.
Easily Integrate New Vehicles Into Your Fleet
The existing maintenance schedule for any vehicle in your fleet can be copied and applied to any newly purchased vehicles. This will significantly reduce the time required to incorporate a new vehicle into your fleet and input information about the new vehicle into your fleet maintenance software.
Consolidated Warranty Data
Warranties extend far beyond only the vehicles themselves. The truth is that nearly every part of a vehicle has a warranty of one kind or another. Without fleet maintenance management software, maintaining so much warranty information can be daunting. The task of keeping track of equipment warranties is far more manageable if you utilize vehicle fleet maintenance management software. Beyond data collection, the software can be programmed to automatically notify any relevant stakeholders that a warranty is expired or near expiration.
Real-Time Visibility of All Data
Vehicle fleet maintenance management software gives management teams real-time access to up-to-date data on the fleet. This will allow the management team to make the necessary adjustments to maintenance tasks, increase accountability, and stay connected to the data they need.
