Setting Fleet Goals in 2022

Start the New Year by Setting Fleet Goals to Improve 3 Things

Submitted by Kim Thoman

Setting fleet goals is the best way to start off the new year. So, Happy New Year to all our fleet owners and managers! Whether your goals are sales, service or office oriented, it is important to set yourself up for success in 2022. In today’s blog, we will focus on 3 top goals that are trending in fleet management and how can we help you achieve these goals.

1. Adoption of EV

With an increase in tighter emissions regulations, electric vehicle (EV) sales skyrocketed in 2021. This being said, it is only a matter of time before more fleets begin using electric cars and trucks, in fact many already have started the adoption process. Fleetistics can help you evaluate your fleet for EV suitability.

If you are setting fleet goals for EV adoption, there are two major concerns for fleet management:

Cost of phasing out gasoline vehicles and the price of EVs.

The biggest concern is the cost involved with switching to EV. Most experts forecast that EVs will be competitively priced with gasoline vehicles in the next few years. Although there will still be an upfront cost in charging infrastructure, the amount of money saved on fuel will eventually make up for it. According to AAA, in January of 2021, national fuel prices averaged $3.03 per gallon for gas and $3.59 for diesel. Meanwhile, the national average of electricity was just $0.14 kWh. These kinds of savings add up very quickly.

Range Anxiety

The definition of range anxiety is “worry on the part of a person driving an electric car that the battery will run out of power before the destination, or a suitable charging point is reached”. This is a very valid worry however the mileage an EV can drive in a given period of time is also increasing with new technology. In your MyFleetistics accounts under the Resources menu, there is a link a map of charging stations in your area. 

There are many apps available for drivers to have available to find the nearest charging stations and based on the miles per day they drive are very suited for EVs. We have tools in place, such as our EV Suitability Assessment (EVSA) that are free in conjunction with our telematics software solutions that can analyze your fleet in the environment they drive in daily. We take a look the types of EVs a company is looking to purchase, and based on their current activity the tool will recommend which vehicles would be candidates and which may not be at this time.


2. Adoption of Digital Key Technology

Some of you may be setting fleet goals to implement a better way to control and manage access to your vehicles.  There have been many requests over the last few years, as the variety of applications for telematics has expanded. High on that request list is remote vehicle access and management solutions. Especially with the ongoing COVID pandemic, our customers need more advanced ways to control and manage keys. This is especially true in the public car sharing sector as well as corporate and government motor pooling.

The good news is that this technology is available and can easily be added to some telematics platforms making the adoption seamless.

3. Improved Performance Monitoring with DashCams

If you are not setting fleet goals to implement DashCams, you may want to reconsider. Dash-cams are not a new technology in the fleet space, but there have been a lot of enhanced features developed over the last year.

Paying full attention behind the wheel is critical for drivers, from the moment a vehicle is started. Normally good drivers can become dangerous “distracted drivers” if they use a phone, eat, drink or smoke, even in a parking lot. Distracted driving cameras use artificial intelligence (AI) to detect this behavior and have some built in algorithms to fuse out anomalies.

DashCams can help companies combat risky driving. They work with rules that are already in place using speed and accelerometer data to improve driving behavior. We always tell our clients that our goal is for “every driver comes home safely every night”.

Fleetistics offers the most affordable dashcam on the market at just $19.95 for in/out cameras.

Pilot to Understand the Return Your on Investment

Setting fleet goals is only step one. Understanding how to best implement technology to achieve those goals requires careful planning. Fleetistics offers a pilot program we call our Solution Evaluation Process. It allows our customers to “try before they buy” and get unique implementation and training throughout the process.

We take the time to understand what every client that participates operation looks like and what their top goals to achieve success. In some cases we assist with setting these goals. We then run a pilot phase to get before and after data to analyze and show proof of worth and the value this technology can bring to your fleet. The goal for us is that the client is getting the maximized savings based on their needs, training and everything else they need to set them up for success by the end of the process.

Fleet Dashcams In Tampa

Tampa’s #1 Fleet Dashcam

Fleet dashcams are an essential part of fleet management. Fleetistics has been offering fleet dashcams in Tampa and Florida since they came out. Dashcams can be used to reduce insurance premiums and are sometimes needed to avoid being put out of business due to high accident rates. 

Some companies use fleet dashcams for training and to avoid accidents, others use it to simply make the insurance company happy. Fleet managers wanting to get ahead of fleet safety issues will want fleet dashcams with AI or artificial intelligence. AI identifies driving behaviors that may be unsafe so fleet managers do not have to view hours of video to spot unwanted driving behavior. Fleetistics offers several fleet dashcams ranging in price from basic and affordable, to advance AI technology.

Get Fleet Dashcams in Tampa

Fleetistics started in GPS vehicle tracking in 2001. As fleet management has evolved, Fleetistics has incorporated new technology such as telematics and dashcams. Fleet operators in Tampa have the advantage of being able to meet face to face to meet Fleetistics’ team members and to review progress. 

“False Positives” With Fleet Dashcam

One challenge with fleet dashcam AI is dealing with false positives. A false positive is when the AI incorrectly determines the driver is exhibiting unwanted behavior. False positives happen with all fleet dashcams but some have better AI than others. You can imagine how hard it is to determine if someone is scratching their head or holding a cell phone to their ear. 

False positives consume time and make using a fleet dashcam without AI less efficient. It takes time to develop AI and because it saves fleet managers time, it simply cost more. 

How To Address Video False Positives

Reducing the number of false positives is a challenge. AI is not perfect and people are unique. This makes it extremely difficult to for AI engineers to get 100% accuracy. In fact, there is not a fleet dashcam that is 100% accurate. To minimize the time needed to review the fleet video, fleet managers have a few options.

  • Outsource the video review. Third party companies can review your video for you and flag the videos which are true vehicle safety issues so you can only a address accurate videos.
  • Find a fleet dashcam that has a lower false positive rate.
  • Work with the drivers to reduce unwanted behavior by frequently addressing it and making it a priority.
