Frequently Asked Questions.
What is Fleet Management?
Fleet management is the process of managing a company's vehicles and their associated costs, including acquisition, maintenance, operation, and disposal. It involves the use of technology, software, and data analysis to optimize the performance and efficiency of a fleet of vehicles, as well as to ensure compliance with safety and regulatory requirements.
Fleet management includes a range of activities, such as tracking vehicle location and usage, scheduling maintenance and repairs, monitoring driver behavior and safety, managing fuel consumption and expenses, and analyzing data to identify opportunities for cost savings and process improvements. It can be applied to a variety of industries and vehicle types, including trucks, cars, buses, and even ships and airplanes.
Effective fleet management can help companies improve safety, reduce operating costs, increase productivity, and enhance customer service. It requires a comprehensive understanding of the fleet's needs and objectives, as well as a commitment to ongoing monitoring and analysis to ensure that the fleet is performing optimally.

Our fleet management software can handle anything from a group of 10 to 1000 vehicles. You can customize it depending on the size and type of your business. Besides, it’s easy to upgrade or downgrade in the future to keep up with your changing business needs.
How can fleet management improve the safety of the drivers?
Fleet management can play a critical role in improving driver safety by providing the tools, training, and support drivers need to operate vehicles safely and reduce the risk of accidents. By promoting a culture of safety and accountability, fleet management can help companies reduce the costs associated with accidents and maintain a good reputation for safety and reliability.
Telematics and GPS: Telematics and GPS technology can provide real-time feedback to drivers on their driving performance, including speed, acceleration, and braking. This can help drivers adjust their behavior to reduce the risk of accidents and improve overall safety.
Monitoring and Analysis: Fleet management systems can monitor driver behavior, such as speeding, harsh braking, and rapid acceleration, and provide feedback to drivers on their performance. This can help drivers identify areas where they can improve their driving habits and reduce the risk of accidents.
Vehicle Maintenance and Inspection: Using fleet management system, regular vehicle maintenance and inspection is easy to manage which in turn can help ensure that vehicles are in good working condition and reduce the risk of breakdowns or other mechanical failures that can cause accidents.
Driver Incentives and Rewards: Using fleet management system, an organisation can incentivize safe driving practices by offering rewards and recognition to drivers who demonstrate safe driving behaviors and maintain a good safety record.
How can I use fleet management software to reduce my fuel costs?
A fleet management software enables the exchange of data between sensors in real-time. Integrated fuel-level sensors communicate with your fleet management platform to provide useful analytics such as:
Fuel drain levels
With it, you can identify and prevent fuel thefts. Notice how often your drivers idle and coach them for better fuel efficiency.
