Improve Return on Investment with Lower Expenses
Fleet maintenance is one of the largest expenses in service and delivery companies. Many small fleet operators start with an Excel spreadsheet, move to a GPS tracking system with scheduled maintenance and graduate to a fleet maintenance application. However, there are large corporations that have grown so fast, and been so profitable, that fleet maintenance was ignored. With a great fleet maintenance program fleets can increase the return on investment by reducing unplanned downtime, scheduling maintenance, minimizing roadside service calls, and improving resale value.
Many Fortune 500 companies deploy GPS tracking solutions and benefit from saving hundreds, thousands, and even millions of dollars on fuel costs. Effectively reduce fuel costs by reducing driver idling time, speeding, fast acceleration, and more. Savings and ROI can be seen in under 90 days!

Track Fuel Consumption
Fuel efficiency reports give side-by-side fuel consumption data for all your fleet vehicles. To help you improve your fleets fuel economy, Fleetistics keeps track of driving behaviors that directly lead to increased fuel costs. You can also compare drivers or vehicles with one another to target areas for improvement.
Optimize Routes for Fewer Miles
Route optimization can occur at many levels. Optimization will occur when dispatchers know which vehicle is near the next service call, drivers can see their routes on the map and find inefficiencies and data can be put into a robust routing program. Simply having a map where you can see vehicles operating in the same area at the same time can quickly provide a complete ROI.
Planned v. Unplanned Maintenance
Prioritize vehicles for repair based on their active diagnostic faults. Depending on your engine, they will also produce a range of useful information. By focusing on predictive engine health, you will see savings by being pro-active and working with service technicians to find the core issue.
Reduced Wear & Tear
Even the simplest vehicle repairs can be very costly to your bottom line, especially if you have multiple vehicles on the road. Fleetistics’ powerful and industry leading fleet tracking technology helps stop and prevent vehicle abuse.
Vehicle Idling Cost
Depending on the engine size, Light-duty Cars, SUVs and Pick Ups burn 0.2 to 0.8 gallons per hour when idling*.Excessive idling can actually damage your engine components, including cylinders, spark plugs, and exhaust systems. Fuel is only partially combusted when idling because an engine does not operate at its peak temperature. This leads to the build up of fuel residues on cylinder walls that can damage engine components and increase fuel consumption
