fleet management software

Fleet management software is an application that helps companies organize, manage and coordinate work vehicles from a central information system to keep the overall fleet operation running smoothly. Fleet management aims to improve performance, reduce costs, and provide compliance with government regulations.

Common software functionality includes:  

  • dispatch and scheduling 
  • GPS tracking
  • price and quote management
  • route planning and optimization
  • fleet maintenance
  • cargo optimization

Fleet management software allows dispatchers and management to record real-time data on vehicle operation. It ensures vehicle and employee safety and efficiency by documenting data on driving routes, speeding, idling time, and work breaks to build driver profiles.

Tracking systems in the application use vehicle telematics like GPS, GLONASS or cellular triangulation, which is less expensive. When intervention is needed immediately, remote control capabilities can limit speed and engine revolution to slow or stop vehicles gradually. Remote security features help prevent stolen vehicles and cargo with GPS, mapping and cellular technology.

Fleet management software can monitor vehicle operation for mechanical problems and maintenance to continue or improve the overall productivity of the company. Other functions of the application can include vehicle acquisition, vehicle disposal, insurance, government regulation and driver license management.
