Everything about a fleet fuel management system is specifically designed to create a profitable return on your investment. Many firms report having recouped their initial costs within the first year, and how often can you say that? Given the fact that getting a grip on fuel usage and costs can bring you a tremendous range of benefits, your fleet fuel management system should create many happy returns.
Your system gives you lots of information, in real time.
Every smart business person knows that information is the key to success. And in today’s rough-and-tumble business environment, the sooner get you reliable information, the sooner you can act on it. You can work more proficiently and retain your competitive edge.
A comprehensive fuel management system automatically captures a wealth of details you can use to improve on-the-road and back-office operations as well as control your fuel assets from delivery to dispensing. Learn more about how fleet fuel management system’s help vehicle maintenance.
Your fleet fuel management system is more accurate. All the time.
Human nature being what it is, it’s unreasonable to expect perfect record-keeping when you’re relying on manual data entry. Drivers forget to jot down odometer readings, or your accounting staff can’t read what they wrote. Or figure out which vehicle it pertains to. Accurate information gives you a better return for every aspect of your business. Learn more about our fleet fuel management system services.
Your fleet fuel management system is customizable and scalable.
It’s designed with reality in mind, so it easily accommodates the natural ups and downs every business experiences. It ensures you’re prepared to handle future growth. The right system will work with any number of fueling locations, vehicles, etc.
That’s why it’s so right for your company, whether you’re managing a small fleet of local delivery vehicles, a large regional transport firm, a municipality or a public utility. FBO or marina fueling? You, too, will benefit.
Saving money strengthens ROI.
You can reduce fuel consumption, and that boosts ROI. Check out the numbers. If you only saved one gallon per vehicle per week, how would that improve your bottom line? At $4/gallon, assuming a five-day work week, you’d save over $1000 for every unit in your fleet. Finally, financials you can look forward to.
You can virtually eliminate fuel loss, and that boosts ROI. Imaginary “losses” due to paperwork snafus waste office time and can cause under-billing. And operating a system that enables theft is like throwing money into the wind. These things are entirely unnecessary, and with a fleet fuel management system, they’re no longer a worry. That’s ROI that lets you sleep better at night.
You can reduce maintenance costs and head off costly repairs. Your fleet fuel management system will automatically capture vehicle odometer and other readings so you can stay on schedule with regular service. It will also alert you to engine error codes and similar diagnostics that indicate impending problems. Catching small problems before they occur or before they can get out of hand saves money. It also saves labor costs and reduces expensive down time.
You can streamline route planning, and that boosts ROI. That’s because it saves time. Drivers are more productive and customers are happier. Whether your customers are interdepartmental co-workers or outside parties, they’ll appreciate the increased accuracy and efficiency delivered by your fleet fuel management system. You’re more reliable, and that’s good for business.
You can reduce undue wear-and-tear on your fleet, and that boosts ROI. You can conserve operational dollars and set aside capital funds for some other important use.
What do you expect in the way of a “return”?
Aside from spending less on ongoing operations and making better use of capital funds, total cost of ownership includes intangibles that matter, too. Headaches such as driver inefficiencies, down time and uncertainty distract you from the job at hand. You can’t quantify confidence and peace of mind, but it’s another return you get from investing in a fleet fuel management system.
