Let's face it, for all the different ways to track fleet effectiveness, fleet management boils down to one thing: vehicle up time. You can have the most optimized routes and the slickest fuel card integration system, but if your vehicles aren’t on the road, they’re costing you money. RTA Fleet Management software is all about productivity, and keeping your fleet rolling year round.
They do this by providing a holistic solution, tracking and scheduling everything about your vehicles and their care. By looking beyond the features that other solutions provide, RTA Fleet Management allows you to anticipate your vehicles’ needs and to keep them on the road, tires rolling, turning investment into profit.
One of the best examples of RTA’s attention to detail is their Tire Tracking feature. Most fleet management systems have some solution for fuel management and maintenance, but they completely neglect the vehicle’s tires. RTA Fleet Management tracks vehicle tire size, tread depth, and PSI history, letting it generate predictive failure reports, so that you can take added tire failure into account when generating schedules. Further, it provides features for tire purchasing and inventory tracking.
This same out of the box thinking is applied to shop scheduling. Rather than simply schedule a vehicle to be “in shop,” RTA allows you to schedule maintenance with a specific technician, and to shift and adjust preventative maintenance to take technician availability and expertise into account. Avoid time wasting bottle-necks in shop down time, and get your vehicles back on the road, where they belong.
If these features sound attractive, head over to the RTA Fleet Management website and look over their full array of capabilities. And while you’re there, check out the extensive information sharing and training packages they’ve put online. RTA’s “Fleet University” is a free resource available to all fleet managers, regardless of the software you use. Resources such as this are why—even if you opt for another solution—RTA is worth keeping in your bookmark list.
