AI for advanced fleet management

Issue 2 2022 Asset Management, EAS, RFID

Time is critical when your business is about getting goods from A to B. Delivering an efficient service to your clients, minimising the risks associated with doing this and improving the effectiveness and productivity of your fleet is therefore of utmost importance to your business's success.

To take it back to the basics, fleet management refers to actions, technologies and processes put in place to keep a fleet operation running efficiently. Choosing to use a smart device such as a tracker that utilises artificial intelligence-based software offers a fleet owner seamless control of their business. By supplying real-time analytics and insights, owners are provided with full visibility on all aspects of their fleet management so that they are able to make real-time decisions with confidence.

Using artificial intelligence-based software, fleet owners can optimise deliveries by knowing exactly where every driver is every minute of the day, being kept informed which vehicles are going to need services and when and even being able to monitor driver attentiveness using on-board AI Dashcams. Fleet management services offer an holistic overview of the entire fleet process, factoring in everything from the weather to real-time traffic data and individual driver habits.

The benefits of implementing artificial intelligence-based services include:

• Increased vehicle lifespan due to tracking factors such as tire wear, mileage and braking habits.

• Improved safety through monitoring travel through ‘safe’ and ‘no-go’ zones, alongside monitoring driver behaviour.

• Financial insights and reduced costs through effective vehicle and space utilisation.

• Optimised route mapping for more streamlined delivery schedules, timing and greater customer satisfaction.

• Real-time alerts and remote management, making reactive and informed decisions possible.

“With advanced planning, optimisation and execution management, businesses small and large can realise improved operating efficiencies and lower operating costs,” says Kobus Visagie, executive: business solutions at Tracker South Africa. “There has never been a better time to harness the intelligence from the information provided by vehicle telematics and related software and use it to place your business a cut above the rest.”

Aside from the efficiencies and impact on your bottom line, the greatest benefit of artificial intelligence-based software services such as Tracker’s is undoubtedly peace of mind. You can sleep better at night knowing that your fleet, drivers and business is taken care of, 24/7.
