When you’re busy ensuring your warehouse operations are running smoothly, you don’t have time to create and analyze reports. After all, the administrative work behind data gathering and analysis takes time, which — let’s face it — you don’t have a lot of.
If you don’t have any data that tells you how your fleet is operating, are you able to make informed decisions about your equipment?
Do some of your vehicles need to be retired? Are you overusing some pieces of equipment and not using others enough? Which vehicles are costing you an arm and a leg in repair costs each year? Is your fleet increasing downtime for your operations because they aren’t being repaired fast enough?
Imagine all that money just going down the drain. Can you afford it?
We get it — reporting isn’t usually a priority for many organizations, simply because they don’t have the time and resources. On top of your long daily to-do list, it’s difficult to fit in gathering data on your fleet and understanding how it affects your bottom line.
Plus, your service provider may not have the infrastructure to provide you with the full visibility you need to see how your fleet is doing.
Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions:
- Are you wasting tens of thousands of dollars on your fleet that can be reallocated to improve other areas of your business?
- Are you making unnecessary or repeat repairs on your vehicles?
- Do you have the insight to discover underlying issues in your fleet before they snowball into larger issues?
- How can you reduce vehicle downtime and resolve it faster when it does occur?
You’re not alone.
Our clients have told us they were in the same position before working with PMHSI. They were strapped for time, their fleet was suffering and their downtime was increasing.
Get Peace of Mind with Intelligent Reporting
With more than a decade in the fleet management industry, we’ve learned first hand that organizations can’t make important decisions about their fleet without having the data to back it up.
Instead of making decisions on a whim — which can result in high costs — it’s important to base any important actions on metrics that show you how each vehicle in your fleet is doing.
When you’ve got the right data in front of you, deciding which vehicles to repair or which vehicles to replace becomes much easier — and much more accurate.
And when your fleet is running smoothly, so is your business. You reduce downtime, increase productivity and grow your bottom line.
