Fleet management is the process of managing the vehicles needed for your business, whether they are for reps delivery drivers or the vehicles needed by those who provide a service, like home health care, HVAC repair, etc. While a good deal of the work needed for fleet management can be done in the office, sometimes you need to be out on the road. Maybe a vehicle breaks down and needs to be picked up and brought in for repair, or you need to pick up a member of staff who is stranded. Other duties in fleet management include the recording and monitoring of the mileage done by the vehicle, the fuel usage, destinations visited and repair or service records.
All of this entails the use of several different pieces of software – or at least it used to. With Badger Maps at your disposal, most of these details can be recorded easily and accessed at the tap of a button. Badger maps can be used on a desktop and on a mobile device. With the mobile app, all mileage is recorded, enabling you to work out the fuel costs. All destinations are recoded, along with the actual routes taken, and unique features, such as Check-in, allow you to keep track of your clients, who visited and when, as well as what happened.
When it comes to vehicle breakdowns, part of your duties in fleet management is to ensure that these vehicles are repaired at the site of the breakdown or recovered back to the garage you use. To do that, you need to be able to send a driver or recovery vehicle out quickly and that’s where Badger really coms into its own. Not only can you easily add the destination to a route map, you can also optimize that route to get you there in the shortest or quickest possible time, using features like live traffic updates to help you avoid the traffic.
