In recent months we have been approached by new and existing customers alike to assist with justification arguments that can be used to satisfy staff that the deployment of a GPS tracking system is not being used or will be used as a “Big Brother” tool. The following may assist in presenting a more positive view on the real reasons for installing a tracking system.
Maintaining a fleet entails more than simply knowing where your drivers are during the day. It is also about more than managing fuel consumption, protecting and monitoring assets, and improving customer service.

Key Performance Indicators: important to track, not always easy to get right. For equipment rental companies, KPI’s are just as important a part of business intelligence as for any other company. They help the management to monitor business trends and facilitate the decision making process. Moreover, improvements can be based upon these performance metrics, so defining clear and relevant KPI’s is somewhat of a necessity. But that is not always an easy task. Equipment rental companies require very specific, industry-related metrics in order to make sense out of their daily business. Below we will discuss three focus areas for which KPI’s can be defined: Assets, Operational, and Customers.
Any good asset manager knows that Preventive Maintenance is a must for their heavy machinery. However, as companies grow and the fleet gets bigger, it’s not always easy to keep track of every vehicle. Unexpected breakdowns cause delays, reports need to be filed somewhere for future reference and the maintenance schedule updated with that new manufacturer document. All of these things get a lot easier when Preventive Maintenance is properly integrated in a CMMS. Here’s why.
In a company where heavy equipment plays an important role in the daily operations, it’s tempting to focus on the task at hand. Earth needs to be moved, a job needs to be done. However, any good manager who is responsible for the maintenance of these machines knows their daily operation is anything but simple.
