New data dashboard to steer fleets through ‘new normal’
A recently launched car, van and truck data dashboard could help operators cut costs and optimise their fleet as the sector starts to emerge from the lockdown.
Introduced in early 2020 by PVS Group, the e-Data Integrity solution amalgamates data from all of a fleet’s suppliers in one place, including leasing companies, hire suppliers, service and maintenance organisations, fuel card providers, telematics organisations and more.
Managing director Marcus Puddy said: “Data dashboards for fleets are nothing new but they have tended to work for just one source of information, such as your leasing company, but this is a much more wide-ranging, holistic solution. The customers we have attracted so far have tended to fit a profile where they use a number of leasing companies, service and maintenance suppliers, and even telematics providers. e-Data Integrity enables them to centralise everything and then present the consolidated information using easy-to-understand visual displays.”
He added that the product had a high degree of relevance to the current moment: “Clearly, fleets are under all kinds of pressures right now, the most acute being to cut costs, and the dashboard enables them to easily identify areas where expenditure can be better controlled at everything from a corporate level drilling right down to individuals. This could cover anything from fuel to tyres and servicing to accident management.
“It’s very much the kind of service that will steer them through this moment and that’s why we have decided to provide five free trials during July to help fleets emerging from lockdown. It’s a gesture of goodwill at a time when things are tough for almost everyone.”
Fleets interested in a free trial of e-Data Integrity should e-mail Marcus Puddy at [email protected]. A copy will be given to the first five to get in touch.
