This is more than fleet tracking. This is full visibility over your company on the road.
Like every company doing their research into the best fleet management system for your needs, you will have a list of questions to help you make the most informed best decision.
Like any decisions these days, it can be difficult deciphering the information needed in order to confidently make a choice.
Visibility is essential when coordinating your staff in-field and you cannot provide the best customer service without it.
Therefore we have tried to help you by collating as many of these questions and their answers in one place.
Prefer to speak to someone?
Creating an environment where you have full contact and visibility with your fleet and staff in-field is now vital when it comes to staying competitive and offering the level of service, information, and clarity that customers expect in 2020.
So what else do you need to know when deciding which platform to choose?
IS MOREFLEET THE BEST PRICED FLEET TRACKING SYSTEM?
Price is typically the first consideration that we all have when looking to make a decision - so let’s address this first.
You may have already seen that most fleet tracking services require that you commit to 12, 24, 36 (and some times even 60+) months minimum term contracts, in order to achieve the best pricing plan.
You may also have to commit to a certain number of tracking units too.
Rolling Monthly Service
Your MoreFleet tracking plan requires no contracts or minimum term. You just continue your rolling monthly service of £8.33+VAT per vehicle for as long as you need to monitor your fleet.
So even if you use a single vehicle in your business, you can monitor it using the full fleet facilities, without having to commit long term.
3 Months Free!
What’s more you will also receive your first 3 months tracking free!
So the combination of the newest fleet mapping portal, low subscription costs, no minimum term, and 3 months free tracking has meant the More Fleet Tracking System is currently considered the absolute best value for money fleet tracking system.
No, quite the opposite!
Simply put, the More Fleet tracking system has been specifically designed to be both highly useful and user-friendly. There’s no point having all of these useful features if they’re too complicated to benefit from.
Your mapping portal is web-based, so you can access anytime from your home or work computer, as well as your mobile phone and tablet.
Whether you opt for express installation or the ‘Fleet-In-A-Box’ self install option, your panel is already set up for you in advance. All you need to do is log in with the private login details provided, and you will see your entire fleet on the map, no matter where they are worldwide!
As well as visual real-time information, you can also set up automatic reports to be generated for shifts, time on site, etc. So, not only is the fleet tracking system really easy to use, it is also extremely useful and helps streamline existing company tasks - saving you time and money in the process.
Do I really need a Fleet Tracking System?
Think of your fleet tracking system as a 'ride-along' to keep a clear observation of your vehicle activity and to help keep staff on schedule.
This means that, even if you have just one vehicle, you will still get the same benefits as companies with multiple vehicles.
The quickest way to get your third, fourth, and tenth vehicle is to ensure your current fleet and staff are optimised to operate in the most effective way possible.
Even if you do not need to scale in this way, we all know that cutting down fuel costs and adding extra security to our vehicle(s) is definitely a good idea.
So, you need a Fleet Tracking Service.
But you probably feel that you are too busy and overstretched to organise the installation and learn how to use it. The MoreFleet installation team cover every UK postcode and can visit your vehicles at multiple locations to install your devices.
It’s common for our engineers to visit your vehicles whilst they are at appointments or on-site. This eliminates or minimises the time your vehicles need to be off the road, and ensures quick hassle-free co-ordination.
You can even opt for the new self install ‘Fleet-In-A-Box’. Your tracking devices are delivered straight to you. Simply plug them into your vehicles and log in to your mapping portal!
Either way, the quick set up and ease of use mean that More Fleet is a top fleet tracking solution for businesses looking to integrate fleet management into their daily activity.
HOW OFTEN WILL MY TRACKERS UPDATE?
WHAT REPORTS CAN I SEE?
What’s fantastic is that the reports are designed to be easy to access and displayed clearly for you to easily understand and analyse. From tracking mileage, fuel consumption, driver behaviour to logging shift reports, not only are the report's data-rich, they are simple to interpret and extremely useful to help you analyse and improve the effectiveness of your fleet. You can also access shift reports and timesheets all from one place. These reports allow you to streamline existing tasks, as well as provide the information to help you work with your drivers to improve any poor driving habits that may be costing your company money and risking their safety.
Driver Behaviour Report
Investing a significant amount in to a fleet of vehicles will be one of the biggest expenses for any company. Therefore, it is incredibly damaging to a company’s bottom line if those vehicles are being misused. Your Driver League will show individual driver behaviour, such as speeding, idling, harsh braking etc.
It will also collate this in an overall league, scoring your driver’s in order. This helps you easily decipher your best and worst-performing staff, and shows you how to help educate drivers on weak areas.
Fuel Efficiency Report
Just filling up a single vehicle at the pump can be a painful experience for our wallets. Let alone an entire fleet! Any unnecessary fuel wastage directly impacts your bottom line.
With MoreFleet you can analyse fuel consumption and look for patterns in members of staff using more fuel than expected consistently.
If you only use your More Fleet Tracking System for this one feature, you will more than make your money back each month!
Shift reports are automatically generated for you to observe/log/download at any time. Amongst other benefits, you also have access to time-on-site and out-of-hours reports/alerts.
This helps you prove or disprove that your staff has been at their allocated jobs for the time frame that they are expected.
As well as quickly highlight any staff using their vehicles out of working hours without permission.
You can observe and review any time frame to see the distance covered. Amongst other benefits, this allows you to cross-reference if your vehicles are consistently travelling longer distances than they are supposed to.
You can also link this up to the vehicle mileage, and receive alerts when they are set for scheduled services.
Live and Logged Alerts
You can get instant alerts straight through to your mapping panel, for actions such as speeding, idling, leaving /entering a location.
All of your alerts are also logged in your reports to access at any time.
As mentioned above, this offers useful insights into vehicle health and can alert you to scheduled service/MOT appointments.
CAN I TRACK MY PLANT AND MACHINERY WITH MORE FLEET?
In addition to any road vehicles that you need to monitor, you can also link up any of your machinery and assets to your mapping panel. With plant being left unattended overnight on construction sites or in isolated areas, being able to check their real-time location as well as set up perimeter alerts is vital security. You can receive instant alerts straight to your phone and panel if anyone moves your equipment out of the virtual fence(s) that you have set. You will also be able to see when the machinery is switched on and operating, helping you ensure staff are working when they should be.
Well, that’s a handful of questions that we get asked on what makes the top fleet tracking system in 2020.
