GE Capital Fleet Services (GECFS) has released Intelligent Operations, a telematics platform that allows fleet managers to visualize key performance indicators in real-time to better understand the scope of their service markets, customers, drivers, and overall fleet performance.
Intelligent Operations was developed by GECFS’ telematics strategic consulting team alongside input from GECFS customers. The platform features a customizable dashboard for service and delivery fleet managers to track where their drivers and vehicles are and how they’re performing.
Mike Mrosko, telematics product leader at GE Capital Fleet Services, says the platform is a tool for fleet and operations managers to manage significant amounts of data coming over from the telematics system that the company has offered for seven years.
The new tool enables operations managers to get their arms around a significant amount of data by focusing on three to five key performance indicators–the metrics they want to drive to improve operations, he says.
The dashboard features color-coded charts, graphs and vehicle heat maps. It allows fleet managers to quickly evaluate profitability by realizing the costs associated with servicing specific customers.
Intelligent Operations tracks client-centric metrics such as the number of visits made to customer locations, the average stop time during visits, and total travel distance. The platform also measures driver-centric metrics including daily travel time, average time of customer/service stops, and engine idling time.
“By combining real-time industrial data with insight from GE experts, Intelligent Operations allows fleet managers to make informed decisions and put actionable productivity plans in place,” he continues. “We provide the tools and resources to help our customers aggregate, analyze and simplify the tremendous amount of telematics data they have, thereby optimizing their fleet’s operations.”
