Fleet data management drives success for FORS members

Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) fleet management packages are helping some 1,000 fleets across the UK make operational savings and reduce emissions.

FORS Fleet Tools and FORS Fleet Management System (FORS FMS) are available to FORS members in collaboration with FleetCheck. 

Both systems provide FORS members with tools to demonstrate how they are meeting the specific environmental, safety and efficiency requirements set out in the FORS Standard - with each offering differing levels of data and analysis.

FORS FMS currently registers analysis on 9,193 FORS member vehicles and 9,274 drivers and some 988 users have accessed the FORS Fleet Tools portal to identify areas for improvement across their fleet - equating to 8,054 vehicles and 4,589 drivers.

Paul Wilkes, business services manager at Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), said: “Measuring and monitoring an entire fleet is the most accurate way for our members to identify efficiency and safety improvements as well as evidencing how these have been implemented through FORS. It is also the swiftest route to understanding the cost savings efficiencies will bring.

“Both FORS FMS and FORS Fleet Tools provide members with a simple portal to collect and integrate essential data, helping them gain, and retain, FORS accreditation.

“The easier we can make it for busy fleet managers to record this data, the better, so we are really pleased the fleet management tools we offer are meeting this need.”

FleetCheck recently launched neew problem-solving factsheets for FORS fleets.

Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “FORS FMS and FORS Fleet Tools help fleet managers move on from standalone spreadsheets and paper-based monitoring, instead providing them with an online system that can be accessed via an internet connection from where ever the fleet manager is working to turn their data into accurate reports and drive efficiency across their business.”
