According to experts’ report, the fleet management market will double in size in the forthcoming 4 years and make it 22 billion USD in 2020.
Every business depends on the transportation, directly or not. Those industries that rely on the transportation infrastructure directly, like supply chain or taxi service, need to increase efficiency of their vehicle usage in order to gain competitive advantages among competitors.
In order to do so companies need to optimize different processes, including vehicle maintenance, trip and fuel management, etc. Usage of innovative electronic fleet management system ensures easier identification and addressing of possible problems related to fleet management.
It’s vital for the efficiency of large fleet operations to move from paper-based to electronic input and processing of data. When choosing a Fleet Management Software (FMS) the vehicle fleet owner/manager acquires a possibility to:
- Make informed decisions based on large volumes of analyzed statistical data;
- Easily identify and address possible problems related to vehicle maintenance, trip management, etc.
Custom fleet management solutions
Fleet management software is a powerful tool to improve the performance of a whole organization. Such solutions help fleet owners and software users to deal with two major categories of challenges:
Budgeting and expense tracking Fleet management system helps to perform the historical expenditures analysis. Based on the received data the vehicle fleet owner can plan future spending, foresee possible issues and get the mitigation plan ready.
Policies and compliance tracking Fleet management software assists with building a system and processes that ensure effective vehicle fleet and drivers management, company compliance with the best industry practices and governmental regulations.
When considering what kind of fleet management software is the best choice for a particular company, the decision-makers must first contemplate automation of which operation functions would offer greater return on investments.
After bottlenecks are identified, the market offering is explored. Selecting a right fleet vehicle management software for a particular company is not a trivial task. For example, an expensive ready-made IT solution might be superfluous, while cheaper option might become unsuitable when company grows. The main goal is to select a scalable and flexible solution that will remain suitable as the company develops.
Market analysis may reveal that there is no ready-made software to solve the existing problems: the available solutions are over budget with many redundant features, or not tuned for a company’s size/industry, or there no needed proposition on the market. If so, custom development of the proprietary fleet management software by the reliable software development vendor will become the only remaining option.
