What is construction fleet management?
Construction fleet management allows construction companies to optimize and streamline the operation of their fleet vehicles and construction equipment. Telematics hardware connected to the vehicles and equipment send data to fleet management software, which provides you with functionality for fleet tracking, preventative maintenance, dispatch and more. Fleet management software also provides construction companies with data-driven insights that allow you to increase productivity of your fleets, prevent breakdowns, and increase the productivity of your daily operations.
What are the benefits of construction fleet management?
In an industry as competitive as construction, gaining operational efficiency is critical in order to make your bids as competitive as possible. By implementing a construction fleet management solution, businesses can take a data-driven approach to their daily operations, helping to reduce rental and fuel costs, optimize equipment utilization, and improve uptime and equipment lifespan through preventative maintenance.
What are telematics?
Telematics, or telematics systems, refers to the convergence of telecommunications and information processing. Telematics has taken off more recently with the rise of the internet and a spike in the number of telecommunications networks that can transfer data to offices in real time for various purposes, including fleet management.
In the automotive or fleet industry, telematics is typically synonymous with vehicle telematics or fleet telematics. Vehicle telematics is used to describe vehicle onboard communication services and applications that communicate with one another via GPS receivers and other telematics devices. The most common application of this is vehicle tracking. This is achieved by combining a GPS system with onboard diagnostics, typically to map the exact location of a vehicle and the speed at which it is moving.
How does asset tracking work?
Asset tracking allows real-time visibility into the location of powered assets like generators, unpowered assets like roll offs, and heavy equipment, including yellow iron, all in one centralized view. Asset tracking can also provide status reporting and diagnostics for things like engine hours and fault codes from powered assets and equipment.
