Freeway launches fleet management app

Freeway Fleet Systems has launched a smartphone app allowing fleet managers to manage their fleet while out of the office.  

The app provides instant access to key management data held on Freeway’s fleet management system and has already been introduced to a number of Freeway users.

Freeway says it is proving to be particularly useful in financial control where management intervention is required to authorise expenditure.  

“For managers, this is a brilliant addition to Freeway,” says Eddie Street of London Bus operator Tower Transit.  “I don’t need to be at my desk logged onto my PC to deal with things such as PO authorisations.  I can basically keep my finger on the pulse wherever I happen to be and know that I am not holding up any work.”

Freeway’s all-in-one system handles everything to do with vehicle maintenance and compliance, including the management of labour, stock and purchasing.

Parts and equipment order requests raised by stores and engineering often require management authorisation.  Freeway’s software automatically sends sign-off requests to the appropriate manager based on the order value and this can be approved or rejected by the manager using a smartphone. 

The app also allows those managing workshop activity to use their phones to assign work and deal with defects.
