Lincoln University launches fleet automation initiative
System will identify underutilized vehicles to assist them in right-sizing fleet and cutting costs
CHANTILLY, VA, September 26, 2019 -- Pennsylvania-based Lincoln University is launching a fleet automation project that will transform manual fleet management processes with an online fleet management information system. The system will also collect metrics to help them determine the right vehicle composition and count to optimize the efficiency of their fleet and reduce costs. The announcement was made today by Agile Fleet, creator of the FleetCommander fleet management information system that is being implemented at Lincoln.
The project will unburden staff who currently manage the university’s vehicle sharing and preventative maintenance schedules manually. Going forward, the automated system will enable the organization to:
- Maintain driver and vehicle data in one online system
- Offer 24x7 online vehicle reservations, eliminating human error and double-booking
- Eliminate arduous paper reservation forms
- Manage maintenance for vehicles, including setting up detailed preventative maintenance schedules for all vehicles, and tracking all vehicle maintenance and related costs
- Collect vehicle usage data needed to identify underutilized vehicles and adjust vehicle types needed by drivers
- Communicate and enforce policies automatically during the online reservation process
- Eliminate manual reporting processes
