It has been reported that by 2020, the number of European commercial vehicle and heavy machinery fleets using fleet management software will almost double to 10.6 million customers. Of these, a large number will be part of the same company located across multiple countries.
The majority of these will have a setup in which the French branch will have a French system, in French, the German branch will have a German system, in German and the UK branch will have a UK system, in English.
Using a system to optimise your national fleet is an advantage that will bring benefits, but those advantages are limited when you compare it to the possibility of seeing your entire international fleet as one, says Avrios.
International businesses trading in multiple languages benefit from greater employee interaction and effortless team cohesion, it says.
In a recent study of 500 UK and Germany based executives commissioned by Rosetta Stone, 87% agreed that their companies relied on more than one critical language and 68% believed no language barriers would lead to an increase in employee productivity.
CEO of Avrios Andreas Brenner says that “choosing one software to cover your entire international fleet allows you to not only improve operations, but also the volume and accuracy of your data, resulting in far more powerful reporting and optimisation”.
“Using a fleet management tool to report on this mass of data can result in a TCO reduction across your entire international fleet by up to 31%.
“International, multilingual fleet management software completely breaks down the barriers and restrictions put in place by the use of multiple systems across different regions, only enhancing optimisation.”
