Freeway Fleet Systems launches fleet maintenance analytics software
Published: 10 February, 2017
Cost analysis software allowing operators to analyse the productivity and efficiency of the fleet, depot, staff and suppliers, has been launched by Freeway Fleet Systems.
Part of the Freeway fleet maintenance management system, the software enables fleet managers to slice, dice and turn the data into graphs by manipulating variables such as clutch or tyres and analysing by make, range, model, asset type and by reason - such as accident, avoidable damage or scheduled maintenance.
This allows operators to immediately identify trends across time, vehicle manufacturer and location. They can instantly drill down to the details to understand the causes of higher-than-expected costs, with costs analysed over time, per kilometre, mile or hour. And productivity can be also analysed by trade, staff and task, with comparisons across dimensions such as region, depot and time-frame.
With Freeway’s fuel analysis, fuel consumption can be assessed by make, model, region or route type. Poor performance by vehicles within the group can identified, even down to per-fill anomalies for a particular vehicle.
Analysis is available in a variety of formats, including live smartphone-based access to KPI reports, on-screen graphic analysis, printed reports on demand and scheduled e-mailed reports of pre-defined data sets or exceptions.
Data may be exported with a single click to Excel, HTML or CSV, and more than 200 standard open source reports are available. The Freeway database is also ODBC compliant, allowing operators to access the data directly for use with others report writing tools.
‘Freeway has proven to significantly reduce fleet maintenance costs and our extensive analytics tools allow those improvements to be achieved quickly by pinpointing areas of excessive costs, whether it be high fuel consumption, inferior parts, unproductive use of labour or poor driving,’ said Freeway Fleet Systems managing director Patrick Tandy.
