Geo-Productivity Drives Big Efficiencies for Fleets
Two months ago we announced our partnership with GM to integrate our geo-productivity software (GPS) with GM OnStar. Like most auto and truck manufacturers, we are seeing a rapid move toward connected fleets. The biggest driver for fleets to implement telematics is an increase in efficiency leading to lowered TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), but that’s just the beginning of the story. A more connected fleet of vehicles can increase driver productivity and safety, increase overall customer satisfaction, and safeguard assets with geo-tracking and predictive analytics. These tools allow manufacturers to monitor maintenance and repair schedules while minimizing time vehicles are out of service. With the right flow of information and data, we see geo-productivity becoming a key source of business intelligence for fleet managers.
Connecting driver productivity and fleet productivity for a 1+1=3 result.
Geo-Productivity software creates a powerful connection between fleet information and driver information. Historically fleet or asset management software has provided vehicle location information, asset (or vehicle) tracking and tied it to planned field activities like repair orders, deliveries or customer visits. But, today, with MapAnything, companies are seeing significant improvements to driver productivity and fleet performance.
Unlike traditional fleet management solutions, which often consider the vehicle first, driver second, we took an opposite approach. By empowering the driver with information such as route planning and optimization, improved scheduling, traffic and weather, we are able improve the productivity of the fleet and the efficiency of the driver.
A connected driver is really an extension of a connected vehicle. More drivers are using Geo-Productivity to connect, optimize, and automate their job. Many fleet managers are now able to collect fleet data for more advanced analytics and optimizations. With this optimization, managers can streamline maintenance, fuel consumption, regulations and compliance and driver productivity. Geo-Productivity Software gives fleet managers the ability to make data-driven decisions, and ultimately increase the bottom line.
Finally, CRM and telematics can play an important role in safety.
Fleet managers now have access to extensive vehicle diagnostic interface data that can be used to track vehicle speed and location, and monitor key driver behavior metrics like hard braking, cornering and acceleration. We are looking forward to broad adoption of Geo-Productivity Software in fleets and believe that it will enhance operational efficiencies, reduce costs, and improve safety.
