10 ways the Samsara platform can give you cost-saving insights
Sell or rent out underutilized equipment
With a surplus of costly trailers (or other equipment) on your books, you risk running unnecessary overhead costs. Use the Samsara Utilization Report to make informed business decisions when right-sizing your inventory.
Prevent costly maintenance
Samsara collects data directly from each vehicle’s diagnostic port, allowing you to create a preventative maintenance schedule and avoid costly breakdowns.
Optimize your electric vehicles
Leverage the Samsara EV Efficiency Report to view the percentage of miles driven on electric versus gasoline to ensure that your electric vehicles and hybrids are being used efficiently. Additionally, use the Fleet Electrification Report to determine which vehicles are best suited to transition to electric.
Lower your insurance costs
Driver safety tools help you take a more proactive approach to reducing high risk driving behaviors, helping to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents and lower insurance premiums.
Set up geofences and configure alerts to get notified when high-value equipment or vehicles leave a predetermined area. Easily and quickly leverage Samsara real-time GPS tracking to recover stolen equipment and avoid replacement costs.
Lower cellular data bills
Save tens of thousands of dollars per year on your cellular bill with in-cab WiFi hotspots from the Samsara Vehicle Gateway.
