Measuring Fleet Operations for Success
Posted on 08/12/2011 by Ashley Jones | 0 Comments
In the competitive service and distribution industry, a company's success depends upon taking advantage of the best technologies and best-in-class strategies to outperform the competition while still maximizing profit margins. One of the most crucial and often missed strategies to accomplish this is to effectively implement a GPS fleet tracking solution throughout a company to optimize fleet operations. Further, the GPS vehicle tracking solution used must be designed around the concept that key performance indicators (KPIs) and reports are management tools to influence process and behavior change.
Without a thorough understanding of their fleet operations, companies desperate to improve the bottom line usually have little to no recourse but to cut spending without quantifying or justifying the decision-making rationale. The result? There is no clear course of action or strategic understanding of what is needed to improve and optimize fleet operations. A GPS fleet management solution provides service and distribution companies with the reporting capabilities to make informed decisions that drive the business forward to maximize revenue while reducing operational costs at the same time.
