Challenges in fleet data analysis & how fleet management software can help

Fleet management without detailed and intensive analysis of all data is not effective fleet management. Especially when it comes to the costs of the fleet, transparency of all data should be created here and data points should be linked together so that better decisions can be made in the future. We’ll show you the biggest challenges in fleet data analytics and how fleet management software like Avrios can help.

Fleet management without detailed and intensive analysis of all data is not effective fleet management. Especially when it comes to the costs of the fleet, transparency of all data should be created here and data points should be linked together so that better decisions can be made in the future. But how do you gain complete visibility and control over your data and true cost of ownership and implement sustainable decision-making for fleet growth? We’ll show you the biggest challenges in fleet data analytics and how fleet management software like Avrios can help.

Decentralized data management leads to less transparency

Data that is stored in different locations (databases) and has no automatic link points cannot give you reliable information about what is happening in your fleet. Decentralization of data is one of the biggest challenges in traditional fleet management and also a reason why processes are slower and less accurate than in a digitalized fleet. Without linking and merging all the necessary vehicle data, unnecessary costs cannot even be identified. In addition, while fleet managers often know where to find all the data, a decentralized solution makes it difficult for all other users to maintain an overview and find and use the right and important data at the right time. This is where fleet management software can help. 

With fleet management software, this challenge can be easily eliminated. Here you have the ability to enter all your data in one central location and connect it through automated processes and workflows. In addition, the data can be assigned to each individual vehicle so that cost savings, damages, and inconsistencies can be easily and quickly identified and resolved. Further, individual and detailed reporting can be drawn to give you indications about future growth and risks within your fleet. This overview helps not only fleet managers, but also other colleagues who occasionally come into contact with fleet management. 

Manual data management is more error-prone and time-consuming

Many fleet managers work with spreadsheets to keep all important fleet data together. This can create several difficulties. Often, spreadsheets such as Excel are not connected to a cloud solution. Thus, in the event of a failure, all of a fleet’s data can suddenly be wiped out. Additionally, manually entered and managed data sets are much more prone to error than automated solutions, for example. This means that when analyzing fleet growth, cost savings, or even the achievement of targets, data cannot always represent the actual state of the fleet 100% accurately. Additionally, manual workflows are much more time-consuming than automated processes. 

With fleet management software, these mistakes can be avoided. The software allows you and your colleagues to gain an effective overview of fleet happenings without missing important data points. Data is automatically linked and pulled, so you can always work transparently. Additionally, you’ll also save more time – through automated workflows and processes, the software makes many of your workflows automatic, giving you more time for more important tasks, such as a sustainable fleet strategy. The software also allows you to set automatic reminders for deadlines and important tasks, so you’re always up to date with your work process.
