Embracing the Opportunities of Emerging Fleet Technology
June 30, 2021
The industry is buzzing with a variety of emerging technologies. Two particular innovations continue to stand out above the rest: 1) the rapid maturation and acceptance of electric vehicles (EVs); and 2) enhanced vehicle connectivity.
Holman’s Geoff Seely spoke with Autosphere to offer his perspective on these key trends and how they’re creating opportunities for fleet operators. In one article, Evaluating the Profitability of Your Fleet, Geoff provides some practical advice for fleet operators who are ready to embrace electric vehicles, noting the importance of a broad, all-inclusive strategy to make the integration of EVs as seamless as possible.
“A comprehensive technology solution and integrated driver app will provide a seamless experience for locating charging points and repair network providers.”
Geoff also touches on why telematics and connected vehicles provide fleet operators the potential to significantly reduce cost and improve efficiency. In a second article, Best Practices to Avoid Fuelling Surprises, Geoff highlights one example of how real-time data capture and enhanced optics into driver performance can benefit virtually any area of fleet management.
“What’s more, the technology allows fleet operators to track driver behaviour to ensure they are practicing environmentally-friendly driving habits.
“As a result, drivers are more likely to reduce vehicle idling and excessive fuel consumption. In addition, the technology provides dynamic routes to optimize productivity.”
