Why the ability to see and analyze real-time data and make actionable changes to your fleet’s operation is key to business success.
Modern fleet management requires keeping a watch on numerous trucks and vehicles. Hundreds of trips, drivers, locations, varying fuel consumption, toll fees, and staying on top of compliance records, insurance claims, service & maintenance records are a mammoth task. There is no scope for mistakes as it adversely affects customer satisfaction, immediately.
Fleet managers have to juggle priorities and to keep critical assets running with minimal downtime with efforts towards increasing the TATs. Even if prudent investments in service and maintenance are done, proactive & predictive solutions are needed by modern fleets to operate and provide a streamlined service for profitability.
When GPS Tracking is Not Enough
So far fleet managers have been using basic GPS based tracking devices that only provide location and speed information. Some fleets have gone ahead a step further and installed a dashcam which functions as a digital video recorder that captures the on-road video and cabin video for driver monitoring of a running vehicle.
But who has the time to watch hundreds or hours of these videos?
Advanced Fleet Management at Your Fingertip
This is where AI comes in. AI will watch, monitor and analyze in-vehicle videos in real-time and gives alerts to the driver in seconds. It further analyzes the vehicle data and give you a driver score, which equips a fleet manager with the knowledge of driving behavior & pattern.
By adopting an intelligent digital application, fleet managers can:
- Track the routes of vehicles,
- Send and receive notifications
- Manage drivers & driving behavior
- Access service history data
- Check the compliance records and more!
