Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was your fleet. Adopting the proper fleet management solutions is a process of continual improvement. You may have a variety of vehicles, purchased at different times and in different places, none of which have had consistent maintenance and monitoring. Or perhaps you have an aging fleet with no cycling process in place. The best fleet management solutions require that all the stakeholders:

  • Strategize
  • Customize
  • Optimize

And once your plans are in place, you need to have a process of continuous improvement in place to keep your fleet on the cutting edge.

Strategize your fleet management solutions

To create a strategy, think about your overall business goals and consider a few questions:

  • Do you spend more time on your fleet than you do on your core business?
  • Is your brand and image properly conveyed by your fleet vehicles?
  • Do you get peak productivity out of your fleet?

Your fleet management solutions provider should be helping you answer all these questions and more so you can create a strategy to drive your fleet and your business forward to success.

Customize your fleet management solutions

Your business and your fleet are different from everyone else’s, so you need solutions that are customized to help you save money and drive profits. Your fleet management solutions should have tools for your individual financial planning and reporting, ways to interact with your information technology, risk management solutions and administration functionality that is customized to your unique requirements. When your fleet management solutions are personalized, you have KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) that help you measure performance and give you data to help drive decisions – a feedback loop that keeps your fleet on course for your individual business.

Optimize fleet management solutions

Optimizing fleet management solutions includes establishing assessments that will generate vital information for your fleet and your business. These reports tell you where you are and where you need to go. Combining all of these management solutions with a scheduled plan of continuous improvement meetings and initiatives can yield a big payback in savings and fleet profitability.
