Throughout federal, state and local government, there are numerous agencies that rely on fleets of vehicles and mission-critical equipment to support their missions in the communities they serve. The same is true for many private businesses, including transportation and logistics companies, manufacturers and distributors. Public or private, these organizations depend on their fleets to help them get the job done day in and day out.
The reliance that government agencies, utilities and private companies place on their equipment puts a huge premium on maintenance. Whether you talk to the equipment manufacturer, maintenance personnel or end-users, there’s near-universal agreement about the role that routine service plays in preventing unexpected breakdowns. You simply can’t ensure reliability if you don’t stay on top of the routine maintenance required for virtually all vehicles and many other types of equipment.
But managing service records, warranties and maintenance schedules can be challenging, no matter how large a fleet you’re dealing with. It doesn’t matter if you’re responsible for a handful of delivery vans operating out of a single distribution center or if you’re a fire department with hundreds of vehicles and other apparatus spread across dozens of facilities—without effective fleet management tools and systems, staying on top of regular maintenance can be overwhelming. If a routine service falls through the cracks, it could spell disaster.
Helping fleet managers get a handle on maintenance is one of the key benefits of a fleet management solution like collectiveFleet. With collectiveFleet, managers gain the ability to track the location and status of vehicles and equipment, which is essential to ensuring that the fleet is properly utilized. But tracking is just scratching the surface of the benefits that the system delivers to virtually any agency or business that relies on a fleet of vehicles and mission-critical equipment.
collectiveFleet also helps fleet managers stay up to date with routine maintenance and repairs via automated notifications and work order scheduling that makes it easy to plan downtime effectively. It allows the fleet manager to integrate data on fuel consumption, performance, telematics, usage frequency, and other performance variables in one, easy-to-access location, so they can use that data as they plan preventative maintenance and repair schedules. With this approach, fleet managers find it much easier to stay on top of preventative maintenance tasks that increase overall reliability, and that translates directly into bottom line results.
With collectiveFleet, information is available when and where it’s needed. The system easily integrates with other software tools to expand your ability to track and report important data. Managers can access a convenient Mission Control Dashboard to monitor information in a manner that works best for their enterprise, triggering email alerts that make it easier than ever to stay on top of scheduled tasks and routine maintenance deadlines.
Plus, Collective Data offers a complete asset management solution that is built to track vehicles, equipment, parts and inventory items. Managers can combine our platforms to create a centralized solution that manages everything from maintenance and employees to training and certifications.
