TMS is developed to manage, control, execute, and monitor the entire operation of the transportation process. TMS administers the incoming and outgoing of logistics fleets helping in optimizing the daily operations and ensures ...
Advanced Telematics has driven Fleet Management Software!!!
A Fleet Management software in today’s world is more than a mere automated application. It can provide a formidably optimal vehicle usage data of your entire fleet. The application is mostly hosted on the Cloud platform (or as a stand-alone too).
The edge of today’s millennial FMS software is that it is a powerful centrally controlled, telematics & human Interface based tool. Vehicle-related data from the vehicle’s sensor device can transmit vital vehicle-related data to Managers who wield the telematics interface to track vehicle data.
Advanced Telematics – the background of sophisticated Fleet Management
Telematics refers to the most advanced remote communications technology. In Fleet Management domain, the term ‘Fleet Telematics’ is used popularly. Fleet Telematics is the technology that enables today’s tech-savvy Fleet Management Enterprises for their near-perfect central vehicle control operations coupled with inter-vehicular communications facility as well.
The Telematics Unit
- Vehicles have a black box device generally under the dashboard.
- The black box is connected to the Controller Area Network (CAN) bus port, which is the diagnostics port.
- The vehicular data is captured and recorded through diagnostics port (CAN) via GPS.
Main modules of fleet management software
The telematics unit is easily configured to many types of Software, Hardware devices (eg: E-Logging Gadget, vehicular cameras for monitoring drivers etc.), as well as Smartphone apps. This enables Managers to get valuable insights into their fleet operations. They can centrally control vehicular and driver schedules and operations. Such a powerful Telematics Fleet Management Software encapsulates end-to-end fleet management modules:
Fleet Routing: This functionality facilitates the managers to track fleets and their exact location, vehicular speed, running time and stop durations. Based on these data, Managers can take vital logistics decisions.
Vehicular Fuel management: This vital module enables Managers to analyze the fuel consumption data of vehicles, emission data, idle time reduction etc.
Fleet maintenance: This is a vital function of any Fleet Management Software that can provide Managers important insights into the maintenance schedule of the fleet, vehicular check-up, diagnosis and inspection schedules and their related reminders & alerts configuration etc.
Fleet Drivers management: Stored data pertaining to Drivers can be analyzed by Managers. It provides vital insights into the Driver’s personal data, working hours, productivity, behavioural patterns etc.
Consignment management: Managers are provided vital perceptions into fleet licenses, quotes, costs related data. These vital data are important for managers to analyze and optimize delivery and dispatch schedules, cargo allocations etc.
Fuel and Tyre Management Helps Managers and Divers to easily communicate with each other, pertaining to fuel and tyre data wo that an error-free running of the fleet is achieved with respect to fuel needs or tyre health.
Driver Security Management: This module provides useful insights to Drivers pertaining to any issues while on the road.
