Getting your local government fleet connected, delivering efficiency, safety and productivity within budgetary constraints.
Data sourced from Teletrac Navman, Aberdeen Group and Frost & Sullivan
Vehicle and Asset Utilisation — By collecting data from your mixed asset fleet, increase utilisation rates by up to 15 per cent, reduce idle time by up to 20 per cent and eliminate inefficient vehicle use.
Proactive Maintenance — Vehicles that won’t skip a beat thanks to preventative maintenance based on kilometres travelled, operating hours or dates, while reducing maintenance events by an average of 12 percent.
Unauthorised Use and Asset Location — Telematics ensures authorised operators are using vehicles for authorised work all while you know where your expensive assets are.
Carpool and Asset Management — Consolidate your vehicle use and simplify the management of your vehicle sharing, while following guidelines for authorised usage and drivers.
Fuel Cost Savings — See up to 30 per cent decrease in fuel consumption and reduce fuel expenses by up to 20 per cent with insight into vehicle performance, driver behaviour, idling and more.
Fuel Tax Credit Rebates — Time and location data generated automatically gives you more accurate rebate calculations putting more money in the business’s back pocket.
Fringe Benefits Tax Calculations — Electronic logbooks allow your drivers to select the purpose of their trip, allowing for Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) to be easily and accurately calculated.
Easy Compliance — The Work Health & Safety Act 2011 requires you to have a workplace safety policy. Connecting your fleet helps by monitoring safety risks and keeps operators and the public safe.
Reduce Road Infringements — Create a safe and compliant fleet by uncovering risky driver behaviour such as harsh braking and excessive speeding.
Identify Training Opportunities — Proactively implement driver training and a scorecard system that rewards safer behaviour, reducing driver turnover. Individualised coaching is based on actual data and performance to improve on-road behaviour and asset condition.
Customer Service — Closest vehicle routing ensures that customers aren’t kept waiting, jobs are completed quicker and customer service remains a priority.
Complaint Handling — Vehicle tracking provides evidence of work completed and vehicle replays - can be used to respond quickly to customer complaints with accurate job, time and vehicle data.
Job Management — Create better scheduling processes and match vehicles with incoming jobs. Once a job is complete, a proof of service is generated and time on site automatically tracked.
CO2 Emission Monitoring — Track vehicle and asset use to generate a vehicle-by-vehicle breakdown of carbon emissions and formulate emissions targets and strategies, including reducing idle time.
Green Fleet Strategy — To tackle the challenges of reducing greenhouse emissions, councils are adopting telematics to better understand trends and identify problem areas.
Education and “Buy-in” — Rewarding better driver behaviour and educating less efficient drivers introduces more ‘buy-in’ to fleet sustainability and encourages everyone to meet environmental goals together.
Maintenance — Ensure that your vehicles are running at optimal mechanical levels to reduce carbon output.
The next phase site management and technology is where we are today and what we can now see. Data coming from multiple sources, both on and off the job site, more complex information including engine data, operator biometrics, cost control, electronic log books, tracking operators on site, collision avoidance, automated scheduling. Connecting all assets in one place.
In order to measure efficient fuel use, government agencies can do the following three things.
Driver training is crucial to developing a consistent culture of road safety. The three steps to creating a successful driver training program are:
Insurance companies make decisions on premium costs based on claim histories – the record of events that indicates whether a commercial vehicle operator is a good risk. You may be eligible for lower premiums if you keep violations and accidents to a minimum. Train your drivers well and track their behavior to reduce your risk of either.
