If you waited to see how cloud-based fleet management systems would change the cleaning industry before you tried them, it’s time to revisit their potential. Your competitors may already be a step ahead after implementing these systems, meaning that it’s time to take your business to the next level. Thankfully, finding the right system for your needs is simple if you follow the proper steps, including:
First, determine which areas of your business are the most critical and how you want to measure them. In other words, what areas provide the greatest opportunity for cost savings and which, if managed poorly, are most likely to lose you business? A fleet management system helps save time by monitoring critical areas of your business. This frees you up to focus more time on growth opportunities. Systems like Diversey Care’s TASKI IntelliTrail can track labor, machine location and service needs, automatically sending you alerts if something needs attention. The system can even analyze the data and make suggestions on how to save money.
Then, choose a system that can track what you need and show you the output in a simple, easy-to-use manner. Most importantly, make sure the system can work on any of your equipment, not just on a single type or brand. If it’s not compatible, you won’t be getting all of the data that you need to effectively manage your entire fleet.
Next, conduct a small-scale pilot test. You wouldn’t buy a car without taking it for a test drive. The same should be true for fleet management systems. Your local Diversey Care sales representative can help set up a test, and then show you with your own data how the system quickly and easily monitors equipment to improve productivity and cleaning outcomes.
Finally, put a system in place to ensure that the data is being acted upon and the full value is going to the bottom line. One of the biggest mistakes companies make with technology is buying it because it’s cool, but once the novelty wears off, so does the value capture. Make sure you don’t fall into this trap. Discuss ways to turn the data into action and value on a regular basis with your Diversey Care rep.
