Continue reading to learn five ways fleet management software benefits your customers.
1. Simplify Scheduling
Every day poses new challenges in the heavy equipment rental industry – new priorities come up, jobs fall behind schedule or finish early, high value customers call needing expedited service, and so on. With a centralized fleet management system in place, your operation has access to a real-time analysis of utilization patterns, job and unit locations, staff availability and much more.
Dispatchers can optimize or modify equipment and personnel assignments within moments of a new request. This allows field personnel, salespeople and dispatchers to smoothly adapt to unforeseen circumstances, and not detract from customer satisfaction and company profits. When internal operations run more efficiently, your customers are happier because they benefit from a seamless experiencing with your business.
Project managers or dispatchers often need to get a piece of equipment on a job site quickly, or duplicate a previous rental for an ongoing or repeating job, and getting this done quickly can be the difference between winning or losing a job.
The NexGen system from Fleet Cost & Care enables staff to produce detailed quotes in minutes, from any location or device. The speed in which salespeople can create a quote ensures that your customers don’t go looking for a different vendor. The detail within the quotes will reassure them that they are making the right decision.
Duplicating quotes or jobs saves your customers the most valuable resource: time. The speed and simplicity of the process keeps your customers calling back.
3. Compile Detailed Customer Information
Centralized fleet management software integrates easily with other applications, such as CRM (Customer Relationship Management) systems. CRM integrations enable staff to seamlessly exchange and access customer information from one centralized database. With an abundance of customer data regarding job preferences, past job details, and payment habits, your staff can provide a level of service that makes your customers feel like a priority. Attention to detail and tailor-made service is how you retain customers in cutthroat markets and does not go unnoticed.
4. Accurate Invoicing
Fleet management software keeps essential processes, like your accounts receivable department, running full tilt with precision. Standalone systems that rely on spreadsheets and a paper trail are jammed with clerical errors, redundancies and inefficiencies. With fleet management software, you’ll have transparent, prompt and accurate business transactions that help you earn the trust and goodwill of your customers.
5. Safety in Software
Safety is the number one priority in the heavy equipment industry, and although we rely on our skilled professionals to maintain a safe job site, software tools provide added accountability.
With fleet management software, you can track coming due maintenance, employee certifications, unit specific safety checklists, and more to contribute to a safe work environment, minimizing risk and liability. Earn the reputation of a thoroughly safe operation with digital trail of your safety program and earn the loyalty of your customers.
