System will improve service to users of the fleet, reduce costs, save staff time
CHANTILLY, VA, August 1, 2019 -- Lynn University is automating the management of its shared vehicle fleet with a web-based solution that will enable faculty, coaches, students, and staff to reserve vehicles online, eliminating paper processes. The solution will also collect metrics to help them determine the right vehicle composition and count to optimize the efficiency of their fleet and reduce costs. The announcement was made today by Agile Fleet, creator of the FleetCommander fleet management information system that is being implemented at Lynn University. The project will unburden staff who currently manage the University’s vehicle sharing and preventive maintenance schedules manually. Going forward, the automated system will enable the organization to:
Share vehicles among multiple departments and team sports
Offer 24x7 online vehicle reservations and the ability to make a reservation and take a vehicle on the spot
Ensure all reservations are authorized automatically
Eliminate arduous paper reservation forms
Rotate vehicles based on mileage to spread usage evenly among vehicles
Collect vehicle usage data needed to identify underutilized vehicles, adjust vehicle types needed by drivers, and right-size the fleet
Manage maintenance for vehicles, including setting up detailed preventive maintenance schedules for all vehicles, and tracking all vehicle maintenance and related costs
Communicate and enforce policies automatically during the online reservation process
"We are looking forward to seeing how Lynn University transforms its fleet management to accommodate a growing need for vehicle access," says Agile Fleet President Ed Smith. "So many of our university clients are saving tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars by reducing underutilized vehicles and automating their fleet management. Plus being able to offer better service to their stakeholders with online, 24/7 access to reservations is a win-win for everyone."
