ARI’s Tony Candeloro Shares How Real-Time Data Can Help Cut Vehicle Downtime

In the January 2017 edition of WasteAdvantage, Tony Candeloro, vice president for product development and client information systems for ARI, shares how access to real-time data can help fleets better and more accurately manage vehicle downtime which in turn can have a positive impact on their budget and expenditures.

In “Reducing Vehicle Downtime Is A Budget-Friendly Initiative,” he notes that through telematics and geo-fencing technology, a fleet manager can be immediately notified when a vehicle enters a repair shop’s property. So instead of having to wait to be notified by a mechanic or a driver that the vehicle is out of service, he can pick up the phone immediately in an effort to get the repair work started right away. The quicker the work is started, the quicker it is completed.

The availability of real-time data has given fleet managers better information and direct access to their vehicles, allowing them to quickly spot exceptions and collaborate better with their drivers to ensure TCO throughout the fleet is kept to a minimum. You can read the full article here.
