Consider the impact of TaaS for fleet business in future

Consider the impact of TaaS for fleet business in future

Fleet Managers will be incorporating Transport as a Service in the solution to customers with the help of web-based digital fleet management software with GPS & mobile app integration,

The reality is that the concept of Transport as a Service (TaaS) foreseen in the future is already happening now. As car ownership keeps shrinking, owing to various reasons, embrace yourself for the business opportunities to be made possible by TaaS.

TaaS offers & enables the buying of kilometres per trips and the experience of riding (shared or unshared) without ownership of the vehicle for individuals or organisations. Because, TaaS relieves the hassle of ownership, such as fuel management, maintenance, financing, insurance, driving, traffic issues and even paying for parking or storage.

Cars are expensive to own and keep and are parked most of the time. Cars are polluting vehicles with IC engines contributing to global warming by the CO2 they emit. TaaS offers quick access to the needed transportation without any headaches of ownership as such.

Reasons for Change in Concept of Car Ownership

Cars are slowly losing popularity across the USA and other developed countries. Although some crowded cities here have started banning the use of combustion engines, there are other reasons too for the drop. Ride-hailing and car rental have become the alternative methods for personal transportation. More and more people are using these services, but the only factor stopping this service from increasing is the cost.

Using ride hailing services full-time can get more expensive than ownership. It’s not cost effective as it can work out to be even thrice the cost of owning vehicle per annum. Surge pricing and in rural areas immediate availability issues are other factors making it no match to ownership. Cities with large transportation networks (like metro railways) are other factors affecting this service.

However, the convenience of ride-hailing or even rental is unparalleled. Thanks to services like Uber, Ola and others, moneyed people without a car or vehicle find it the right choice in cities without mass transportation and very little parking spaces.

Factors in favour of ride-hailing or vehicle sharing.

  • No hassle of parking or storage
  • Reducing their burden of Carbon Footprint and asset ownership
  • Increased time efficiency and resource utilisation

Mobility management is getting into fleet business.

Mobility managers are the experts serving the TaaS industry. So fleet managers who depend upon vehicle ownership in their job description will in future see a shift in job description. It’s not the death of fleet ownership altogether, but a shift in the role. They will be advising/guiding clients about the options of shared mobility against the decision of buying vehicles for a fleet.

The main role of the mobility manager is to get people to their job site or place of interest. They will make up strategies and plan to incorporate various aspects of TaaS and subscriptions to vehicles as part of the solution. It could involve supplementing speciality vehicles with other vehicles not owned. The role involves selling a contract to the customers. It is similar to paying for a package of travel miles in a particular service provider’s fleet.

Concluding Note

Advanced technology, like Cloud Computing, AI, ML and IoT are getting involved in fleet business too. Quality and quantity of data churned out by the FMS software is increasing to more efficiently manage critical areas like driver behaviour, vehicle safety, fuel costs and maintenance, plus many other factors affecting efficiency and ROI. The software uses data insights to handle asset utilisation info, preventive maintenance, driver safety, compliance, route planning and  fleet optimisation.

The Fleet Management Solution is customisable software offered by Trinetra Wireless that also can be integrated with other systems you are using in your management of vehicles or fleets. Using  telematics technology and Data Analytics,  the software can generate, process and analyse the data to turn it into more relevant, valuable and insightful information to all stakeholders.

Video Telematics is Transforming Fleet & Driver Management

Video Telematics and Fleet Management Solutions

Fleet Management System (FMS) software supported with GPS, mobile app and dash-cam video, empower fleet managers with insights and data to improve vehicle operations and driver management in real-time.

According to a study, the market for video telematics is expected to grow from 2020 to 2025 by 22% (adding 3.2 million subscribers). In-cab cameras fixed in vehicles collect visual video evidence or data, and are also a tool for driver safety, insurance claims and driver training. The study also found that video telematics (Dash-cams) can reduce collisions by 65% and accident costs by 75%. These are just some of the reasons why fleet managers of all fleet sizes are adopting this technology.

In-cab video cameras have become a part of the telematics solution as fleet management solutions move on, crossing the early adopter stage. Experts believe that by 2023 telematics will have vision-enabled in-cab video as a standard feature of the fleet management system.

The dashboard mounted camera or dash-cam allows for the alerting and reporting of bad driver behaviour. It can help detect driving fatigue or distraction, phone misuse, unused seat-belt, lane change without signalling, potential frontal collision and tailgating.

Fleet managers using this game-changing technology are provided with never before seen insights into poor driver behaviour or habits, non-compliance and crashes. Poor driving performance and accidents add to the costs of operations, higher risks, lower customer satisfaction, besides higher fuel and maintenance costs.

Fast evolving dash-cam tech or  video telematics

In the recent past, in-cab video recordings were for events like speeding and harsh braking. As there were no live feeds, managers had to re view recordings later, for safety and coaching of drivers. However, recently modern video telematics has evolved and entered the market with the ability to monitor live video feeds from vehicles integrated with other sensors.

This system integrated with the GPS tracking and fleet management software, can alert drivers in real-time regarding bad or risky driving behaviour. The system can correct drivers immediately to help the better control of vehicles and prevent accidents that could be critical. The knowledge that real time monitoring is done, helps to modify positively drivers’ attitude and performance.

Using video telematics for training

Fleet managers undertake periodic coaching of drivers who are in duty to bring about sustainable improvements in safety and driver behaviour. Dash-cam video recordings in the cabin help to train drivers to respond better or take alternatives for handling certain events. Monitoring and coaching will yield good results in the long run.

New machine vision based systems integrated to the fleet management system are a boon to fleet managers of large or small and varied fleets, as many features are automated for reporting and review. Just placing cameras in cabins have an immediate positive effect on driver behaviour, performance and safety and solves half the problems and prevent others.

To Conclude

The FMS software, that Trinetra Wireless offers, can be integrated with other systems you use in your fleet business. Impost probably, companies will be using intelligent fleet management software and most likely get AI integration. Using telematics technology and Data Analytics our software can as simulate cache of information to make them more valuable, insightful and meaningful to managers.
