Improved Productivity and Return On Investment
When compared to other GPS vehicle tracking packages, the Xlerate Fleet
Management System has set itself apart. Whats different about Xlerate is the
way it provides the information it gathers to business users.
Owners of service and delivery companies need to know more than simply where
their vehicles are at any given moment. By using the carefully collated vehicle
and fleet information available in Xlerate's user-friendly reports and
web-based maps, fleet managers can make operational decisions that will save
them time and money which in turn greatly affects the overall profitability
of their business.
Xlerate customers all experience dramatic operational improvements which
include increases in productivity, customers service and vehicle safety.
Additionally, customers can experience significant decreases in fuel costs,
road user charges, overtime, and insurance premiums.
Improve customer service and response times
Using the real-time location feature, you are able to respond to customer
requests promptly by arranging for the closest vehicle to respond, rather than
the first driver to notice the job.
Right-size your fleet
The Xlerate reporting features allow an insight into the actual work each
vehicle does each day/week/month. By carefully examining these reports, you may
be able to re-direct some of the workload, ensuring all vehicles work in the
most efficient way possible. This could lead to reducing the size of your fleet
and can help you plan for future vehicle purchases.
Reduce unauthorised stops and after-hours use
By setting maximum stop times, you can be alerted when drivers are repeatedly
taking long breaks between jobs.
Reduce the time it takes for drivers to move between jobs -
without the need for them to speed.
Using the route planning function, the most direct route will be suggested and
instructions can be messaged straight to the driver if a mobile data terminal
(MDT) is installed. This means drivers take less time finding out where they
are going and are less likely to get lost.
Reduce operational costs
By better managing the way employees use their working hours, employees can be
made more productive and spend less time on expensive overtime.
Spend less on fuel
By using Xlerate to report on excessive driving speeds, after hours usage and
excessive vehicle idling, managers can create a clear driving policy aimed at
reducing these events and therefore making a significant reduction in fuel
Reduce your insurance premiums
Once the Xlerate system is in place, you may be in a position to approach your
insurance company and renegotiate your premiums based on the fact that you have
greater control over the vehicles activity and location.
Improve vehicle performance through regular maintenance regimes
Regular vehicle tuning and maintenance, based on the manufacturers recommended
schedule, can provide increased fuel economy. Build alerts into your Xlerate
system to notify you when each vehicle is due for a tune-up or service.
