VEHICLE telematics provider, RAM Tracking, has launched its new Fleet Assist product which will allow fleet operators and drivers to record everyday fleet processes on-the-go.
It aims to make fleet managers’ jobs easier, helping to boost levels of productivity and efficiency across the business.
As well as enabling fleet operators to keep track of key documents and dates, including road tax renewals, MOT reminders, insurance renewals and scheduled services, the app allows drivers to record daily business transactions and other occurrences on the job, serving as an all-in-one hub for fleets.
Other functions include the ability to speed up processes for vehicle maintenance checks and recording expenses.
This allows drivers to log information for individual vehicles, and document fuel purchases and other expenses, simply by photographing the receipt.
The app’s in-built breakdown alert function also helps to keep drivers safe whilst minimising disruption to daily operations, notifying fleet managers instantly if a breakdown occurs and allowing them to assess which driver is in the best position to takeover.
The ability to record key breakdown information, such as the location of the incident and witness details, also facilitates the making of insurance claims so that fleets can focus on business-as-usual.
For delivery fleets, to further simplify daily practices, Fleet Assist lets drivers collect an image, record the status and document the signature capture of every delivery.
Scott Chesworth, operations director at RAM Tracking, said: “The future is digital, and that doesn’t exclude fleets. RAM Tracking has created Fleet Assist as an essential assistant for operators, enabling fleet management to be kept as efficient as possible.
“Simplifying administrative tasks gives fleet managers more time to focus on growing their business, safe in the knowledge that essential documentation is accurate and up-to-date. We’re confident that once businesses are introduced to Fleet Assist, they won’t want to do their jobs without it.”
