Fleet management is so much more than simply owning and operating vehicles. It’s a complex interplay of many different factors and optimizations – much like the concept of business process management.
In recent years, more and more tools for fleet management optimization are emerging. Fleet management is changing.
Projected growth of the fleet management industry to about $30 billion by 2022 is largely driven by advances in technology – and the rate at which fleet management companies adopt this emerging technology will largely impact the rate of this projected growth.
And it seems fleet management companies are aware of this.
The National Conference of State Fleet Administrators (NCSFA) recommended in a 2018 survey of 44 state and university fleet participants that fleet management companies begin implementing “robust fleet management policies and procedures” as well as “accelerating the implementation of technology to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of fleet management practices”.
That same survey showed that 38% of repairs and 39% of preventative maintenance work were insourced, on top of the in-house work that is done as part of routine fleet management. Just another incentive to tighten up your processes and streamline all of that manual work with a good, solid process.
In this article, we’ll be looking at how you can use Process Street to implement robust fleet management policies and procedures. I’ll cover:
- What is fleet management?
- What is fleet management software?
- Fleet management templates
- Using Process Street for fleet management
Let’s start by making sure we’re all on the same page; what exactly is fleet management?
