Supply Chain Management (SCM) is all about improving efficiency. In today’s competitive marketplace, where profit margins are often low, SCM can help you increase your company’s bottom line, improve customer satisfaction, and much more. But, you can’t second guess this process, and the old sayings of “if it isn’t written it isn’t true”, and “you can’t manage what you don’t measure” play a huge role in SCM.
Here are a few suggestions on how a Fleet Management System can improve efficiency in your business:
1. Service Logs: Service Logs help you manage the total cost of your fleet, and allows you to easily identify which vehicles in your fleet are the highest to maintain and keep on the road. Service Logs keep a running “tab” of repair costs, maintenance costs, and much more!
2. Time On The Job: These reports identify when your field technicians arrived at a job site, how long they stayed, and when they left the job site. It’s all about billable services here! Are you charging enough for your on-site services? Which field tech averages the longest time at a job site, which field tech averages the least amount of time?
3. Vehicle Performance: Know which vehicles in your fleet are speeding the most, idling the most, and have the poorest fuel efficiency (poor gas mileage).
So, these are just a few ways you can improve your company’s efficiency. Become a better SCM today. Schedule an appointment with Mobile Tracking and Consulting Services today to learn more.
