Having a difficult time managing your organization’s fleet of vehicles?
Getting a handle on the many variables that need to be managed and finding the perfect solution can be as daunting as the actual work. Many organizations leverage costly systems that are too large and not customizable enough. Others try to manage their fleet with spread sheets which do not scale, provide no back-up and recovery, and leave the majority of the work on the shoulders of the administrator. Now there’s help. Planet Technologies has developed a “perfect fit” system that integrates with your current technology and off-loads much of the manual data entry to the driver in real time through the use of smart phones.
The Fleet Management Solution Accelerator from Planet is built on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform and allows you to easily manage & track your agency’s motor vehicles and associated maintenance, mileage and fuel usage. The Dynamics CRM platform provides a familiar and consistent interface across all areas of the system.
The Asset Management Solution Accelerator is a great add-on to the Fleet Management Solution Accelerator, allowing you to track assets associated with vehicles and drivers!
