Going Beyond ELDs – 5 Ways to Empower Your Fleet Through Software

Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) are not the only thing that can boost your fleet’s performance. While they may be one of the only required devices that a truck or motor carrier must possess, they are truly only the tip of the iceberg. Below, we will explore some of the other offerings from providers, like AssetWorks FSS, that can elevate your organization’s performance and efficiency.

1.    Electronic Field Ticketing

AssetWorks FSS allows field operators to electronically manage field ticketing software and work orders, update inventory details and track job statuses using mobile devices. Office staff, who can track the current job stage of a field operator in real-time, have the ability to send last-minute changes directly to the operator and ticketing information is sent to the office electronically, eliminating paperwork and time-consuming data entry. We’ve frequently heard from managers and operators that tracking down and processing paper tickets can take several days’ worth of man hours each month, while electronic ticketing is completed in seconds.

2.    GPS Tracking/Telematics

With GPS tracking/Telematics, users can view your vehicles and equipment in real time on a map, create boundaries for vehicles based on time frames or geographic zones, monitor driver behavior and receive real-time alerts when drivers are demonstrating habits outside of company policy (more on that in number 4 below), stop maintenance issues before they become a problem, and accurately captures ECM readouts to ensure effective PM schedules.

3.    Driver Vehicle Inspections

FSS’s Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR) work hand-in-hand with your Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) in order to keep your drivers and your vehicles safe. The same technology platform is used for both the DVIRs and ELDs so the information vital to maintaining a safe environment doesn’t fall through the cracks. From real-time status updates to tailored inspection points, Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports were created to further your vehicles’ success. In addition, major and minor alerts are sent to key personnel in real time, and major defect reports will provide direct feedback to the driver. Also, continuous driver prompts, or “annoyances,” will ensure that reports are followed in a safe and timely manner. Finally, you have the ability to have different inspection lists depending on vehicles types and internal processes.

4.    Driver Behavior Monitoring

Driver tracking and driving behavior technology lets you analyze undesirable activity such as speeding, swerving, hard braking, and unauthorized use as well as track idling costs to eliminate wasteful driving habits, increase ROI and keep your costs down. Supervisors receive immediate notice of any key issues, including through driver behavior reports and consolidated driver scorecard reports.

5.    Lone Worker Software

Work-alone safety options allow easy compliance with lone worker legislation (including DOT compliance) and safety policies by automating the check-in process and ensuring field operators are connected to the office at all times. Workers can easily check in on their mobile device. In the office, staff can monitor the statuses of all lone workers and are immediately alerted when a worker misses a check-in or an emergency arises.

In addition to ELDs, AssetWorks FSS offers these modern fleet solutions and more, including custom solutions and integrations. If you are looking to bring costs down, increase safety, or just get a better understanding of the data and trends within your fleet and drivers, than these solutions may be right for you.
