Software for in-house fleet management
Our comprehensive, easy-to-use fleet management software is designed to help you get the most out of your fleet. You’ll be able to manage your own entry and reporting of data and manage your own requirements in-house.
Our solutions are designed to maximise your fleet’s efficiency. Through tracking and analysing all aspects of your fleet, from fuel, FBT management and vehicle registration, to service and maintenance and fleet usage, you’ll ensure total cost transparency, lower fleet expenditure and increased effectiveness of the cars being used.
Whatever you want to achieve – whether it’s lowering costs, reducing administration, shrinking fleet size or ensuring your cars are utilised appropriately by drivers – our software is the key to helping you reach your goals.
Just some of our software advantages include:
- Online vehicle tendering utilising our buying power to get you the lower cost on vehicles for your fleet
- Fuel management so you can track expenditure – or over-expenditure – online
- Online pool vehicle booking, allowing you to monitor usage with the end goal of reducing costs and fleet size
- Registration management, with alerts scheduled for every due vehicle
- Service and maintenance data, with alerts for service reminders
- FBT management, allowing for comparisons between operating cost versus statutory formula methods
Hybrid solution for fleet management
Our long history of working closely with clients to create a solution that suits their needs makes us well-placed to tailor our services to your requirements. We believe in working together to understand what improvements are required within your current fleet. By discussing what your end goals are, we can determine what services you’d like to outsource to Smartfleet, and which you’d prefer to maintain internally using our software. You’ll have the help you need every step of the way. You have the freedom to change your mind along the way – we can adapt our service offering at any time.
Automated booking for pool vehicles
Allowing drivers to book their vehicles online not only increases productivity – the process takes only 90 seconds to complete, with automated booking notifications to the driver and vehicle custodian – but also allows you to monitor all vehicle usage to ensure utilisation is maximised.
It can be customised so that authorisation is required when booking a vehicle, creating a level of accountability that ensures only necessary bookings are requested. You can view bookings by site, driver, time period, reference number and booking status. Compliance to your own organisational policy can be incorporated. This system means appropriate vehicles are completely utilised in a day, leaving other vehicles available for longer journeys.
The key box facility is an additional feature that is linked to the pool booking system, ensuring that the vehicle key can only be accessed by authorised employees.
