Client Goals and Challenges
FSG Services was looking for a fleet management system to monitor its fleet vehicles in real-time and easily locate them to assign different jobs based on their location. Moreover, the company needed to control driving behavior and identify vehicle misuse within its fleet, such as speeding and unauthorized trips, to act accordingly and make improvements.
Frotcom was the chosen solution to meet these needs and has positively impacted FSG Services’ fleet management.
After a successful implementation and training process by the Frotcom team, the company started using Frotcom and met the defined goals.
According to FSG Services, its fleet drivers have reduced driving speed, limited idling time, and improved driving behavior by using Frotcom's Driving behavior analysis. In addition, the company increased its fleet productivity and service delivery.
Maruapula Motlatsi, FSG Services’ Assistant Fleet Manager, said: “The excellent training and support from Frotcom's team allowed our drivers to improve their driving behavior, which positively impacted fleet productivity. Also, Frotcom enables us to get different automated daily reports in our office, significantly reducing the need for manual logging and making the whole process easier.”
Ultimately, it is possible to conclude that FSG Services has taken full advantage of Frotcom's features to meet its fleet management goals.
