Conventional fleet management software was designed to enable companies and dealerships to manage large fleets of vehicles more easily, including leased cars that are made available for employees to use daily. While such software does indeed simplify the task of managing a large fleet, it is not designed to help organisations take advantage of new vehicle ownership models such as car subscriptions.
If you are looking after a corporate fleet and you would like to adopt a more flexible fleet management approach that allows you to quickly increase or decrease the size of your inventory to match changes in demand, we recommend focusing on software that will serve this purpose. This type of software is also an excellent choice for dealerships that would like to offer a subscription service as an alternative ownership option to their customers.
With this in mind, here is what you should consider and evaluate when looking at software solutions that are currently available for large fleet managers:
As a minimum, a comprehensive fleet management solution should provide you with the ability to monitor the usage and condition of every vehicle in your fleet in real-time. Access to live data on each vehicle can help you ensure that your inventory is being utilised properly at all times and that you are not paying for vehicles that are sitting idle in your showroom. If you would like to move from a leasing business model to a subscription model, you will need a management system that also gives you the tools to implement the change quickly and effectively, such as:
If you would like to make sure that the management software you adopt is going to be capable of supporting your business in the future, you will need a fully customisable platform. It is not always possible to anticipate how your business and its fleet management needs may change in the future — but with a fully customisable solution, implementing change will be seamless.
A customisable platform can meet the needs of businesses in many different industries. Instead of paying for specialist construction equipment fleet management software or company car management software, you can adopt a system that is capable of meeting any use case you may have in the future. For the management of fleet operations that may change significantly over time, this is undoubtedly the most convenient option to explore. Having to change to a new system may not involve any financial penalty if you are paying on a subscription basis but it could disrupt your business if your workforce has to learn how to use completely new software.
