Fleet Management is the system that companies use to safely and efficiently manage their
fleets and asset information. The process itself provides companies with lots of insightful data, as
well as reduces their costs and improves efficiency.
The term fleet management is not a new phenomenon, from small and
big companies, like UPS, to government and state organizations, like the postal service, have
all had enterprise vehicles given out to their employees as part of their ‘fleets’.
These vehicles are enterprise or governmentally owned and thus the fleet of vehicles differs from
trucks and vans for the postal service to sleek, electric and modern vehicles for corporations with a
variety of options whereas the postal service is all uniformed and equally the same vehicles.
These types of corporate fleets are beneficial for companies, they are a crucial aspect in
managing and growing the size of fleets and their profits.
The fleet managers have the task of managing the fleet so that they are cost-beneficial, if they
have the right size fleet.
Rightsizing is having just the right amount of fleet vehicles, which ensures that the company do
not overspent or overinvest and thus regardless of the economic state at the time, the fleet will be
bringing in profit and not at a cost and cause a deficit.
Fleet means a group of vehicles/ships that engage in one common activity or operate under one ownership.
Fleet is usually understood as a group of vehicles in one company that operates with transportation.
The company has several vehicles that are being used by different employees, but for the same overall
Fleet is usually used in automotive
industry, however, fleet can be also understood for a private person that owns several vehicles.
Typically, fleet is known as a group of vehicles working towards the same goal, within the same
Fleet management with AutoPi
How does the AutoPi Dongle factor in
when discussing fleet vehicles? The AutoPi device and software can be used in collaboration with fleet
vehicles in comparing, observing and managing multiple vehicles simultaneously.
The AutoPi Cloud and software can be used to register multiple
vehicles to one account and receive the data from each vehicle and thus also be able to compare the cars and
their data against each other, in order to have a better overview.
AutoPi Cloud Fleet management overview
In tandem with the AutoPi, you can also in real-time follow all the vehicles and their incoming
data, as well as updating the device in the vehicles.
With the AutoPi, you only need one account
to have a fleet, in which one is the
admin and then create the needed number of users for the vehicles in the fleet.
For example, a government is working with the idea of electrifying and greenifying the postal
service vehicles, and thus requires not only a new updated and modernized fleet of vehicles but also
requires the software in which they can easily manage this fleet.
With the AutoPi, each vehicle would be ‘loaned’ out the specific driver as a registered user in
the system in which the admin would be person in charge of the fleet vehicle department.
Thus, the vehicles would be optimized to be able to share data in real time as drivers are out on
route with their mail and packages and any error or problem could be flagged immediately and send to the
admin for handling.

This would make the vehicles more efficient and reliable among many things, including
communication and continuous status updates.
On the dashboard
, the postal
service will be able to compare the different vehicles as well as be able to follow the vehicles on route to
their destinations as well as many other functions.
Using the AutoPi in tandem with your fleet can result in lower maintenance cost as well as the
AutoPi can find the errors faster and therefore you can get the problem solved before it escalates to a
level that is costly.
You can save a lot of money by lowering the maintenance cost when using the dongle to run a
diagnostic on your vehicle on your own time as you do not have to send the car to the mechanics to spend
time finding the error, but instead you can deliver to fix the problem immediately as you know what it is.
This means that your vehicle is more on the road than in the auto
repair shop getting fixed. Furthermore, another highlight of what the AutoPi can do for fleet management is
that the dongle can monitor the driving
pattern of the vehicle’s driver.
Thus, this can lower the fuel consumption and cost by showing you how
your fuel cost can be lowered.
Enterprise Fleet Management
Enterprise fleet management is not only essential but sometimes crucial for a business, but
especially those in the public and private sector.
It allows the employees of a company to do their work more efficiently and by allowing access to
automatized and highly efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles, it also allows for better logistics
in which we can follow the data and ongoing status of the vehicles.
The AutoPi software
earlier will work just as seamlessly as with a governmentally or public sector fleet as with a private
Fleet management is predicted to only grow even more as the economy strengthens and as the
“sharing” economy grow even further.
Thus, with the AutoPi Dongle
and the AutoPi software, a company whether big or small or a contract with a government service will be able
to utilize it to enhance and enrich their fleets and the method in which they manage their fleets.
The AutoPi has a lot to offer when it comes to modernizing the fleet vehicles and utilizing a
software that is easy to use and manage the fleet. The possibilities are endless as the directions in which
our ‘sharing mobility’ grows further.
