From the days of ‘software on a shelf’ to the new, streamlined automatic updates of today – we’re covering what’s on the minds of project managers today.
This week, we’re breaking down how COVID-19 is affecting the fleet industry, and how utilization, smarter spending and a shift in mindset might be what’s next for the industry
The fleet industry is in a unique position, having seen other industries begin to adopt this technology, and now adapting it to suit their operations and management strategies.

“If you’re able to quantify the risk of the vehicle being unavailable for the crew when they need it, then the capital investment starts to become very easy to justify…When you’re budget is being scrutinized, it becomes very important to mathematically defend those spare units.”
“Fleets cost organizations so much money, but the ROI of a successfully run fleet can add tremendous value and help build the brand of the organization.”
Fleet FYIs by Utilimarc helps you on the go or behind the desk, making fleet management a little easier. You’ll be able to tune in every week for a new episode on data integration, fleet management – business intelligence style, insightful analysis and all things in between.

This is a decision that many (if not all) fleet managers have to face at some point. It may seem like a good option, given the low mileage, but holding on to a vehicle with low LTD miles may end up being more expensive than initially expected.
