Everyone is interested in reducing their fuel consumption, especially with today’s high gas prices. Whether one operates a single vehicle or oversees an entire fleet of vehicles, it is important to take the initiative towards reducing fuel costs. This will not only help the environment by reducing fuel consumption but will also save the user money which will increase their bottom line. For most businesses, the number one target area is fuel as it is the largest operating cost most fleets deal with.
A measurable method that helps derive fast fuel savings is fleet management software - also referred to as telematics. By adopting fleet management software, fuel consumption can be reduced by:
- Improving driver productivity - reduce idling time, harsh acceleration and speeding
- Reducing total miles driven by incorporating route optimization
- Detecting engine faults that may be contributing to increased fuel consumption
- Analyze miles per gallon (MPG) reports to pinpoint the most fuel efficient vehicles
Implementing a Green Fleet Program targeting improvement of fuel economy with the use of innovative fleet management software helps business owners and fleet managers maximize their return on investment (ROI). Many businesses are now even turning to electrical and hybrid vehicle purchases. As these vehicles become more popular and widely used, fleet management software development firms must be prepared to offer fleet management solutions catering to these vehicles.
It is a good idea to ask a GPS fleet tracking provider if their software is compatible with electric and hybrid vehicles. It is important to implement a comprehensive fleet management software infrastructure that allows for fleet adaptability.
Armed with information, business owners and fleet managers can start to formulate plans to tackle fuel economy improvement. Speaking with a knowledgeable consultant can help address specific needs and show how a fast ROI can be achieved.
