Software allows fleets to be measured on emissions and safety

The live CO2 profile of a fleet can now be seen online thanks to an enhanced version of GE Capital Solutions, Fleet Services’ award winning iManage fleet management tool.

Winner of 2007 Digital Initiative of the Year award from Fleet News, the new version of iManage - which has been adopted by more than 50% of GE Fleet Services UK fleets since its launch - also allows fleets to be looked at in terms of their insurance groupings, NCAP crash test ratings and driver age bands.

Rich Green, managing director at GE Fleet Services, said: "iManage integrates information from 11 different countries in eight languages, allowing users to access management reports either consolidated across Europe or by country in minutes; an exercise which previously would have taken weeks to compile."

The new features added to the product also include the ability to look at drivers who are performing best and worst in terms of spend, maintenance costs to be examined by supplier, and rentals to be examined by vehicle category.

iManage presents key information about the cost and operational performance of a fleet in the form of a dashboard, allowing managers to quickly identify specific problems and take appropriate actions. With three clicks of the mouse, for example, the user can move from a wide-ranging fleet overview to individual vehicle and driver data.

The dashboard information can be measured over the last one, two or three years, and the user can set target costs and inventory numbers with upper and lower control limits to enable him or her to see if their fleet is operating efficiently.
