Fleet managers rely on GIS data for asset mapping to ensure trucks and fleet vehicles are dispatched to the correct task while staying safe and minimizing risks.
Common challenges confronted by fleet managers include:
- Many oil & gas fleets operate in remote areas with features that are not documented on conventional maps such as wellheads and pipelines.
- Municipal fleet vehicles are often dispatched to work in close proximity to critical infrastructure that must be located and avoided, such as power lines and water mains.
- Utility and service fleet managers must also ensure vehicles are assigned to a specific geographic location in order to save fuel and labor costs, and prevent misuse.
FleetLynx addresses these challenges by combining GPS vehicle location data with GIS map overlays to ensure your trucks and fleet vehicles stay secure and operate safely wherever they are.
How Integrating GIS Data Helps Fleet Managers
FleetLynx’s GPS integration with GIS mapping automates real-time data tracking, replacing the need for time-consuming and inaccurate monitoring by the fleet manager.
By integrating GIS data with fleet management, FleetLynx helps fleet managers:
- Enjoy greater control over without having to actively monitor your fleet vehicles.
- Provide greater security for your fleet and help prevent unauthorized use.
- Improve the efficiency of your fleet by understanding where assets are so you can make decisions faster and better.
Use Geofencing to Prevent Misuse and Dispatch More Efficiently
Fleet managers can use FleetLynx to integrate GPS location information with your own GIS map overlays to create geofences to assign fleet vehicles to specific zones.
By creating geofenced zones, fleet managers can:
- Monitor arrival and departure schedules.
- Manage a fleet of vehicles within a zone.
- Limit fleet travel to specific areas.
- Make sure their fleet vehicles are used properly for assigned tasks.
It’s all about increasing driver productivity, improving fleet efficiency, and reducing your costs.
