Best Fleet Management Software in 2024

When selecting fleet vehicle tracking solutions, the choice you make can greatly influence your operations. High-quality GPS tracking systems can provide numerous benefits, including enhanced efficiency, reduced fuel consumption, lower operational costs, improved driver safety, and increased customer satisfaction.

Therefore, it's crucial to choose a system that offers the features your business needs to optimise its operations fully.

In this guide, we’ll explore some of the top features currently available in vehicle trackers and explain why Fleetsmart should be your top choice.

Key Vehicle Tracking Features Available

Real-Time Tracking with Google Maps Integration

This feature allows you to locate your vans with precision, within a 5-metre radius, ensuring you have accurate insights into their locations at all times.

Whether you’re at the office, working remotely, or on vacation, you can access detailed fleet information from any desktop or mobile device with an internet connection. This ensures you stay informed and connected, no matter where you are.

At Fleetsmart, our advanced GPS mapping technology uses Google Maps, including satellite imagery and street view, to provide exceptional real-time vehicle tracking.

Advanced Vehicle Reports

Detailed data analysis through vehicle tracking reports helps you identify areas where your business may be losing money due to inefficient routing and driving habits. By addressing these issues, you can boost your business's efficiency and cut operating costs.

Fleetsmart offers a comprehensive reporting suite as part of our fleet-tracking package, using Excel spreadsheets to provide extensive fleet management information. This includes details such as vehicle start and stop times, route deviations, speeding instances, harsh braking/acceleration, and extended idling periods.

Journey Replay

This feature enables you to visualise the starting and ending points of your van's journeys, track route deviations, monitor speeding incidents, idling, and harsh acceleration or braking.

With Journey Replay, you can accurately determine when a van reached its destination, which is crucial for delivery fleets that need to adhere to strict schedules. This tool also helps resolve disputes over delivery times, ensuring transparency and accuracy in your operations.

Our Journey Replay function allows you to review all the data in the reports by replaying the entire journey from start to finish.

Geo-Fence Notifications

Geo-fence alerts instantly notify you whenever a van tracker enters or exits a specified area. You can set up geo-fences based on both location and time, giving you immediate alerts if your vans leave your premises outside designated hours. This feature helps reduce the risk of theft and unauthorised use of company vehicles.

This is just one use of geo-fences for your business. By creating multiple digital geo-fences, you can have peace of mind knowing you'll always be alerted if a van enters unauthorised areas.

Driver Behaviour Reports

Comprehensive Driver Behavior Reports allow you to monitor your drivers' habits, enabling you to provide targeted training where necessary. This proactive approach helps reduce instances of harsh braking, rapid acceleration, and speeding, which can lead to lower fuel efficiency and increased vehicle costs.

SMS and Email Reports

With Fleetsmart's Email and SMS Reports, you can stay informed about your vans even when you’re away from your desk. These alerts provide an easy way for employers to remain connected with their business when online tracking software isn’t accessible.

At Fleetsmart, we understand that many employers spend significant time away from their office and computer, so we include email and SMS reports as part of our standard package.

Business owners and managers can opt to receive periodic fleet and vehicle status reports via email and SMS alerts. Alternatively, they can choose to be notified when vehicles exceed speed limits, deviate from designated service areas, or exhibit unusual behaviour.

DVLA Lookup

At Fleetsmart, we strive to simplify your role as a fleet manager. That's why we've created a feature that automatically imports tax and MOT data from the DVLA, ensuring your records are always up-to-date.
