How Tracking Maintenance Can Make Fleet Maintenance Stress-Free

Several companies rely on vehicle fleets to serve their clients. Most people think of trucking or shipping companies when they think of businesses who rely on fleets, but the reality is more and more businesses need a variety of vehicles. While larger companies are more likely to have vehicle fleets available, smaller companies also keep several vehicles on hand.

Some smaller, product-based businesses will use shipping companies like FedEx or UPS. Others have shipping departments dedicated to filling orders. If you've seen trucks or vans branded with a restaurant or product, you've come into contact with businesses who maintain fleets of vehicles as part of their work.

From meeting clients to making deliveries, you need to know you can depend on all of your vehicles to get the job done. Tracking maintenance for each of your vehicles helps you keep track of your fleet in a cost-effective and efficient way.

When you have several trucks, vans, cars, and other vehicles to track, there's a lot to consider. You have to keep track of insurance, mileage, taxes, and uses for each one. Add to that repair costs and space consideration, and it can quickly become overwhelming.

Asset Panda's asset tracking software helps you keep tabs on your fleet's maintenance needs. Our cloud-based platform makes it easy for all of your employees to update each vehicle's entry in the database. The easy-to-use interface integrates easily with existing spreadsheets, so you won't have to spend additional time migrating data and records.

Using Asset Panda to assist in tracking maintenance for all of your fleet vehicles will boost several areas of your company. We've listed just a few below.

Make Your Work Flow More Efficient

Our software comes with a free mobile app. Your employees can access current vehicle information, including purchase date, employee usage records, mileage and more. Having this information at their fingertips will help them plan delivery trips. When you know exactly where your vehicles are, and what condition each of them are in, you'll be able to plan vehicle use in the most efficient way possible, minimizing wasted time and money.

Access Previous Maintenance Records

Planning and record-keeping go hand-in-hand. When you can access your repair and usage records from anywhere at anytime, you'll be able to plan ahead of time for preventative maintenance. No more changing the work day when a vehicle unexpectedly breaks down on you. When you've stored up enough records, you'll be able to see patterns over time and use those patterns to address problems before they arrive.

Schedule Repairs With Ease

Your team needs to know when specific vehicles will be unavailable. With an accessible tracking maintenance program, you can give your employees notice ahead of time. Better yet, they'll be able to access the database to make changes in real time. Because some workers use specific vehicles more than others, they're best equipped to make changes to your database about the fleets they spend the most time with. This gives them the ability to update records with the most accurate information available.

Save Money on Vehicle Costs

When you keep your fleet maintained and repaired on a regular basis, you will likely buy new vehicles less often. And if you have a large fleet, the cost of buying new vehicles can add up. When properly maintained, diesel vehicles can drive for 750,000+ miles. Many fleet issues can be address by regular repair and maintenance, so keeping up-to-date can save you thousands.
