The fact that service can be a differentiator and a source of revenue for companies, especially when product competition has leveled out, shouldn't be anything new. Service is an area that can be greatly influenced and controlled via information systems.
A recent study by AberdeenGroup, shows that companies using fleet management solutions realize benefits such as a 12.2 percent increase in service profitability, a 13 percent improvement in vehicle utilization, and a 14.8 percent decrease in travel time. Additionally, the companies experienced an average annual savings in operating costs of $1,100. Implementing fleet management is obviously a smart move--in the same study, 82 percent of respondents said fleet management was of importance to a company's operational and financial performance. Yet, only 25 percent said they were very or extremely satisfied with their company's fleet management approach. How do you avoid that low level of satisfaction?
