Fleet consultancy company PVS Innovation has launched a management information platform that provides a one-stop data repository for fleet managers.
According to PVS, fleet decision makers can obtain a holistic visual overview of vehicle and driver performance with any discrepancies to the ‘norm’ clearly identified through the new system.
According to the company, it is “critical” for fleet chiefs is to identify ‘rogue’ vehicles and drivers it said dashboards will enable fleet operators to spot avoidable costs and thus where cash savings can be made, including drivers not maximising fuel card benefits by buying petrol or diesel in the cheapest locations or opting for premium fuels or tyres being replaced early due to damage caused by kerbing or poor driving style or when there is more than 3mm of tread remaining.
“Invariably vehicle-related data provided by contract hire and leasing companies, rental suppliers, maintenance providers and fuel card companies and driver performance information sourced via in-vehicle telematics, driver behaviour tools and accident management organisations are located in individual silos,” said Marcus Puddy, MD of PVS Group. “But the new PVS Innovation management information platform provides all the answers to difficult questions relating to fleet operating costs and driver behaviour in one easily accessible location. Combining data to view vehicle whole life costs is not new. But what is a breakthrough is providing the ability for fleet decision-makers to view the information in a quick and easy format even when it is being generated by multiple organisations.”
