As per the current scenario, many companies confront the issue of miscommunication. This can lead to delay in assigned schedules, which can result in the loss of productivity for fleet managers. How could eFleet Systems bring a solution to such problems?
eFleet Systems has GPS data and telecom based tracking data services to track the driver and the vehicle as per business needs. These inputs help in dealing with the empty return scenarios and increase the opportunity to optimize the loading delays.
Please provide an example of one of your successful fleet management implementation which has gained considerable benefit for that company.
One of the customers of eFleet has used its historical business data to select the right truck size and model for its new batch of commercial trucks. We provided them with the operations cost of the various trucks models and choose the right model for increasing the business margin. The data on tyre cost per KM as one of the customers has helped them move to tyre subscription model offered by CEAT, and hence saved on working capital expenditure from CAPEX to OPEX.
Tell us about the future blueprint of the company for the years to come?
We are moving towards digitized data analytics and provide transporters with the business data to make decisions on the go. Each route and vehicle wise profit margins benchmarks will help clients to make the right business dealings and move towards complete digital world. We have made tieups for integration with major Cash Card providers, GPS providers, and Tyre OEM, and Fuel Sensor providers. More so, we are looking forward to adopting and integrate the IoT and ML-based systems whenever they make business viability to the trucking transporters. We are also looking for single truck owners to use the application over cloud to make use of the digital revolution that is mandated in this competitive business environment.
