Telematics – What’s on Offer?
The use of telematics or in-vehicle-monitoring-systems (IVMS) is on the increase as best practice fleet management requires access to information, real time or daily batched. There are almost as many solutions to problems as there are suppliers of equipment and services.
Knowledge is power and in the world of fleet management it’s critical for making decisions, reducing operating costs and managing risk. There is a plethora of suppliers offering a wide range of solutions from software-as-a-solution (SaaS) to fully managed systems, so selecting the right system for your fleet isn’t an easy task.
Fuel cards are meant to be a fleet manager’s best friend. They make the process of drivers filling up easy and provide additional payment options for vehicle maintenance and other related expenses. It eliminates the administrative burden of petty cash or reimbursements – plus it simplifies the invoicing and end of the month reporting. Sounds easy right?
Vehicle Body & Equipment Fit-out – What’s on Offer?
Fleet vehicles are selected based on their fit-for-purpose cred. Body and equipment fit-out is no exception.
The right body and equipment will maximise a vehicle’s payload, whilst providing an efficient and ergonomic design to protect the driver and provide a safe mobile workplace.
Existing road funding sources such as fuel excise are being challenged with advances in automotive technology delivering greater fuel efficiency and electric motor alternatives. In addition, growing and ageing population and increasing urbanisation are intensifying budgetary pressures on road maintenance and systems.
Lease Accounting Standards and FBT Update – Are You Ready?
KPMG will explain the changes to lease accounting standards and its potential impact on your business. They will discuss the impact on the lessor and the lessees, the separation of lease and non-lease components, practical implications, financial, operation and business impacts, transition accounting and effective date.
Making Safety a #1 Priority
Who is Responsible and Aiming Beyond Compliance?
The management of an organisation’s fleet demands a growing level of expertise to address emissions, costs, maintenance, efficiencies and above all SAFETY. In the past this was the responsibility of a single manager and primarily aimed at achieving legislative compliance.
46% of serious workplace injuries and deaths are motor-vehicle related. When an organisation can have their drivers engage with objective feedback (data) it is shown to have a dramatic and sustainable impact in reducing the frequency and severity of risk-events generated.
Yellow fleet represents a considerable investment for an organisation. Optimising its life provides a number of challenges as does forecasting its residual value given you have little control over future currency exchange rates and economic conditions 8 to 10 years after its acquisition.
