Data Consolidation Strategy: Implementing a Consistent and Efficient Fleet Management System
When considering what constitutes successful fleet management, a constant predictor can be the use of an effective data consolidation strategy. Relying on multiple billing programs, fleet tracking systems, and analytics program can cloud otherwise clear goals. Alternatively, profiting from a data consolidation strategy that is best suited to your management style, as well as fleet needs, can provide the necessary tools to optimize workflow, protect your business interests, and monitor operations.
Adopting a streamlined version of data consolidation can be an adjustment on all levels of operations, but with the right education and training, the benefits of data consolidation via a fleet management company’s digital platform can ultimately increase productivity and ensure your fleet needs are met without exception. Some of the benefits include:
- One platform for the entire fleet including telematics integration
- Sometimes clients may purchase third-party platforms like telematics. Effective fleet management company systems can combine this vehicle data with fleet programs for business intelligence-based reporting.
- Give a 360° view on all aspects of fleet in one common solution
- One point of contact to have questions or concerns answered
- Common billing platform
- Only one consolidated invoice from one vendor
- Reduce operating costs that can sometimes be incurred by duplicating efforts such as user management, fleet organization, billing and reporting functions across disparate platforms.
- Improved productivity and efficiently
- Reduce cost through system consolidation
Monitoring & Evaluation
- Better Analytics through a single fleet management information system
- Combined data into one common reporting platform in order to gain the best data insights possible
- For instance, combining a fuel purchase with telematics information can help to mitigate fleet card fraud by auditing the location of the vehicle during the fuel purchase location, or to help ensure the tank capacity was not exceeded, or if the incorrect fuel type was purchased.
- Improved Security and Data Protection
- One common place to manage users and user access to data
Utilizing an effective data consolidation strategy to optimize your fleet management has its diverse benefits and provides an efficient, as well as consistent tool to control, monitor, and evaluate your fleet assets. Seamlessly incorporating a fleet management company’s online information system into daily operations can relieve undue stress and prevent costly data and financial errors. By capitalizing on a single uniform and familiar fleet management platform, fleet managers can track and analyze their business operations and further enhance their fleet success.
