In business there is a constant need to maximize operations to get the most out of the resources that you already have. As positive results are delivered, more positive results are expected. That’s not a bad thing.
Leveraging a fleet tracking solution means understanding how preventive maintenance helps maximize the resources you currently have.
You don’t want to be caught reacting. An obvious idea that may be foreign to some.
Reactive maintenance means you’re waiting for the problems to happen to your vehicles. It’s seeing the check engine lights come on and panicking because you don’t know what’s wrong.
Using a fleet management system stops this poor practice and introduces…
Preventive maintenance maximizes your resources through scheduled alerts and planning, so that your vehicles and assets don’t incur any issues.
Rhino Fleet Tracking customers use the ‘Service’ tab of our application to maintain the health of their vehicles and to cut maintenance costs. Vehicles are a huge investment for businesses, so keeping them operating efficiently for longer periods is our bread and butter.
Tires rotations and oil changes have a significant impact on your vehicles fuel efficiency and longevity.
Making sure your tires are frequently rotated (2x a year) will lengthen the life of your tires so you don’t replace them as often. Because most vehicles are 2-wheel drive, flipping those tires from to back and vice versa will allow the tread to wear more gradually.
Using the service tab in our application, you can alert yourself when your tires need to be rotated next.
Schedule your next oil change in the service app to make sure your drivers aren’t waiting until the car is running poorly to take care of it.
Oil changes are easy to forget – take the onus off the employee to remember and automate the process, that’s why we’re here.
It starts by adding your most updated maintenance and working from there. For your newer vehicles, you can simply start with the maintenance you have scheduled for the future.
Overtime, you’ll realize that you’ve kept a downloadable logbook that documented how all of your vehicles have fared over time and the steps it took to get them back on track.
This is especially critical for helping to phase out old vehicles. In your yearly reports you can quickly see which vehicles required the most maintenance last year, especially unscheduled maintenance, to see if the vehicle is worth keeping.
Fleet Tracking is more than just knowing where your vehicle is at all times, but that’s the start. You too can start tracking to ensure your vehicles are always in good health. Use the button below.
