Fleetmatics is helping van operators comply with Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) standards through its ‘Fleet Maintenance Reports’ function.
The ‘Fleet Maintenance Reports’ function allows fleet owners to set up ‘Service Alerts’ within the Fleetmatics system.
These alerts can be set by calendar time, engine-on time or mileage, depending on the type of service needed, and provide a specific name and a description.
If, for example, a van is due to have its MOT, the alert will notify the fleet operator, providing a detailed description of when the work needs to be carried out.
The Maintenance Alerts offer great benefits to van operators, who can set up alerts to cover each vehicle within the fleet and manage their vehicle maintenance needs in one place.
A well-documented service record is also maintained on the Fleetmatics system, which eliminates unnecessary paperwork.
Richard Brooks, European marketing director for Fleetmatics, said: “By setting up Maintenance Alerts, van operators can extend the life of their fleet, keep it productive and have peace of mind that they are in line with VOSA’s renewed van operational standards.
“Fleet owners have less to be worried about and can shift their concentration back onto their day to day tasks.”
