Your vehicles are one of your transportation department’s biggest expenses. As the fleet manager, it’s your responsibility to ensure they last as long as possible, which requires staying on top of your vehicles’ maintenance. Since it costs far less to prevent an issue than it does to fix it, Synovia offers fleet managers live diagnostic information about their vehicles. This provides you the visibility you need to eliminate unexpected – and costly – surprises. Instead, you stay on top of your fleet and monitor its’ needs before they become emergencies.
Protecting Your Vehicles
Tracking allows you to connect directly to your vehicles’ engines to monitor fault codes, odometer readings, and fuel consumption. If there is a fault code, the information is transmitted directly to the manager of the fleet. The data also provides the opportunity to standardize regular maintenance using information like odometer readings, engine hour data, or time since last service. By being proactive in your maintenance approach, you can avoid many expensive repairs. This keeps your budget in line and your vehicles on the road.
There are all kinds of useful reports as well. These include distance driven, fuel usage, and idle time. At the end of the day, you will know exactly where your fuel is going. You can monitor driving behavior such as harsh braking and acceleration to identify drivers who may need more training to prevent vehicle damage. You can also set alerts based on fuel usage and speed. Overall, the more safely a vehicle performs and the more efficient it is, the easier it is to save money while protecting your drivers and passengers.
