Public Transport Fleet Management Solutions

When public safety is in your hands, you need a bus fleet management solution that keeps your passengers safe, your drivers on time, and your buses running. Managing buses and coaches across numerous routes efficiently and effectively has become a challenge. Creating a route and a schedule, knowing where your vehicles are at any given time, making sure your drivers use safe driving practices, and reducing fuel and maintenance costs are some of the many issues you face everyday. Add to that, managing employees and meeting regulatory mandates, and you have more than a day's work in front of you.

MiX Telematics harnesses modern technological advances to develop smart fleet management solutions for all of these challenges. We save you time and money, so you have more of both. 

Get Key Insights into Your Public Transport Fleet's Performance

The MiX Fleet Manager Premium software platform keeps track of all the action: where each vehicle in your fleet is, how your drivers are driving, how much fuel your fleet is using, and when buses and coaches in your fleet need maintenance. It's packed with features to help bus fleet management, and it's completely secure.

The rising cost of fuel has a significant impact on fleet businesses. But with MiX Fleet Manager Premium, not only can fuel consumption be monitored and reduced by up to 15% in some instances, but behavioral aspects relating to efficient and safe driving can be detected and corrected thanks to advanced reporting and analytics.

Buses and coaches that are driven well will perform better and need less maintenance. MiX Fleet Manager Premium gives you the tools you need to monitor, manage and improve driver behavior. This will increase not only the efficiency but also the safety of your fleet.

Getting the most from a fleet of buses is another major concern. Activity timelines are a great way to illustrate usage patterns and help boost fleet efficiency. In addition, the ability to manage service and licensing schedules with automated reminders will make sure your drivers are in compliance.

    • Driver behavior improvement -- Instant feedback allows drivers to change their behavior before an unfavorable event is recorded.
    • Improved fuel efficiency – our customers achieve fuel consumption savings from 10-25%.
    • Reduced maintenance costs – as driver behavior improves, undue wear and tear is reduced, thus maintenance costs are lower.
    • Improved environmental regulatory compliance – with less excessive idling time, your fleet’s carbon footprint will be reduced, keeping you in compliance with environmental regulations.
    • Reduced accident rates and severity – with fewer speeding and harsh braking incidents, your drivers have fewer and less severe accidents, saving lives and money.

  • Weather conditions
  • Difficult terrain
  • Traffic issues
  • Vehicle maintenance
  • Driver behavior

Savings on Fuel Expenses

Oil and gas fleet management solutions

One of the main reasons fleet managers are turning to fleet management systems, regardless of the size of their fleet, is the significant savings they get in fuel expenses. By tracking fuel consumption across trips, analyzing road conditions and driving trends, MiX Telematics helps you find the causes of fuel wastage in your fleet. You get a detailed picture of your fleet's daily trip expense trends. You can use this information to create a plan to reduce or eliminate unnecessary expenses.

Tracking these factors can help you reduce fuel expenses and root out other unnecessary expenses:

  • Trip duration
  • Number of stops
  • Acceleration rate
  • Idling time
  • Road and traffic conditions
  • Driving behavior
  • Location and route

Better Driver Communication

It is not uncommon for oil and gas production to involve several different facilities from the extraction site to the refinery to final product delivery. Your fleet may be spread between several locations at the same time. In these instances, communication is essential. With MiX Telematics, you can keep in touch with your fleet wherever they are.

  • Drivers can communicate with each other and fleet managers
  • Fleet managers can communicate with all drivers at once
  • Warnings and notifications can be sent to managers and drivers

Stay on Top of Your Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance keeps your vehicles on the road longer and your drivers safer. But, keeping track of and inspecting hundreds of vehicles across oil and gas fields is almost impossible for fleet managers. These vehicles run long distances and travel through different terrain, often rugged, that takes its toll on them.

But, in such a volatile industry, safety definitely comes first, and cannot be compromised in any way. MiX Telematics fleet management system monitors the maintenance and upkeep of the health of your vehicles. It reports on their status so that you can schedule the appropriate maintenance on the right schedule.

Oil and Gas Fleet Safety and Risk Management

oil and gas telematics solutions

Oil and gas fleet risk management is all about safety. Oil and gas fleets often operate in rugged, difficult terrain. Safety hazards can pop up unpredictably, which means you have to take precautions to make sure your working environment is safe. With an oil and gas fleet management system from MiX Telematics, you can be sure you will get increased safety with no compromises on efficiency. In addition, you'll get alerts on safety policies and compliance regulations for different vehicles and jurisdictions. That's a win-win for everybody.

  • Live stream information on events and messages to and from your drivers
  • Real-time alerts on hazardous weather conditions
  • Real-time view of a vehicle's position and which driver is behind the wheel
  • Information on driving direction, speed, driving violations, and past trips
  • Hours of Service (HOS) solution to staying compliant with FMCSA's design, performance and technical specifications
  • Status of wear and tear on vehicles in your fleet
  • Driver scoring, fuel use, event violations, and cost analysis reports
  • Location, movement, utilization, and trip reports

MiX Telematics fleet management software reduces instances of negligence and alerts you to hazardous conditions that put your fleet operation at risk. Our electronic logging device (ELD) was specifically designed to manage and maintain your oil and gas fleet's compliance with the HOS rule by tracking your drivers' RODS electronically, making paper logbooks obsolete.

ELD Mandate for Oil and Gas Risk Management

As an oil and gas fleet manager, you have a unique challenge. Your fleet must comply with the ELD mandate, but you also need a solution that is built for your industry. ELDs fitted by MiX Telematics meet those requirements.

  • Secure and tamper-resistant
  • Location data captured at ignition, when the engine is turned off, whenever the vehicle moves, and at least every hour
  • Connected and synced to the vehicle's engine
  • Grid/graph format displays driver information as it changes throughout the day
  • Errors and malfunctions within the HOS system detected and recorded automatically
  • Data transfer to enforcement officers via USB, when needed

We make complying with the EDL Mandate as painless as possible. In addition, you get many benefits such as:

  • Reduced paperwork – according to the FMCSA, an ELD can save drivers 19 hours a year by eliminating the paperwork involved in filling out a RODS. It also eliminates the need to keep paper logs.
  • Better planning capability – since you can instantly find your drivers' status whenever you need it, you can better plan their time and their routes.
  • Lower crash rates – drivers who use electronic logs have measurably lower crash rates than those who don't use electronic logs. This also includes preventable crash rates.
  • Compliance made easy – when drivers and businesses comply with the ELD mandate, they can take advantage of other electronic compliance solutions such as the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA).

Benefits of Vehicle Tracking

With GPS vehicle tracking, you know which trucks are in which neighborhoods. You can make split-second decisions on who to send to emergency calls, change routes and schedules in an instant. In addition, when you can see where your trucks are on a map, you can help any driver who becomes lost when sent to unfamiliar areas. This helps them stay on time and keeps them from speeding or working overtime to make up for lost time.

Driver Management and Training Telematics Tools

Without a doubt, risky driving increases the chances of accidents. Human error is the reason for approximately 90% of accidents. In addition, poor driving can cause wear and tear on your trucks and other vehicles that can increase your utility fleet's maintenance costs.

With MiX Telematics, you can keep track of your drivers' performance and help them improve. Our utility fleet telematics tools that identify and improve poor driver behavior include:

  • Driver engagement app

    Driver engagement app that let your drivers see their progress.

  • In-cab display

    In-cab display that alerts drivers about how they are performing in real-time.

  • In-cab video

    In-cab video that shows you what happened before, during, and after an accident to help you prevent accidents. and determine fault for insurance claims.

With our driver management and training tools, you can reduce your accident risk, keep your vehicles better maintained for a longer lifespan, lower repair costs, and improve your bottom line.

Maintenance and Diagnostics Benefits

When you buy a vehicle for your fleet, it is essential to know what you spend during its lifespan. This is where the total cost of ownership (or TCO) comes into play. TCO is the cumulative cost incurred from acquisition to disposal of the vehicle. Acquisition cost, operating costs, depreciation, and more are a few of the variables used to determine TCO. However, one of the most expensive variables is the cost of maintenance.

Importance of Reduced Ownership Costs

As a vehicle ages, it will require maintenance more often. However, another predictor is the quality and the regularity of maintenance during the lifetime of the vehicle. That's why it's important to reduce ownership costs as much as possible.

Preventative and predictive utility fleet management software can help you:

  • Schedule your maintenance so that you don't have to wait for an emergency appointment if a truck breaks down.

  • Identify performance trends for your vehicles to inform future purchasing decisions.

  • Keep records of maintenance to use if you need to file a warranty claim.

  • Prevent increased wear and tear caused by one part wearing out and affecting another part.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I reduce my utility fleet fuel costs?

    By tracking driver performance, your drivers will not only drive more safely, but because of a reduction in excess idling, speeding, and unauthorized stops, they'll use less fuel. In addition, with MiX Telematics, you can pre-plan their route so that it is more efficient and fuel cost-effective.

The reality is that vehicle and equipment rental companies have more risk for theft than other industries. This makes keeping track of your vehicles and equipment at all times a high priority for your business.

Losing just one vehicle means tens of thousands of dollars of lost revenue, not only as you try to recover the vehicle, but if, in the end, you have to replace it. The same goes for equipment. GPS tracking can tell you where your vehicles are and alert you when your equipment moves from one place to another. This lets you act quickly to recover your assets.

Improve Vehicle Maintenance

Rental fleet management software with GPS tracking has improved vehicle maintenance management with automated alerts that let you know when a vehicle needs service. You can set alarms to remind you of regular, preventive maintenance as well as monitor vehicle health, so you know when an “unexpected” issue occurs and take care of it before it gets worse. Both these features let you plan for downtime so you don’t lose profits if a vehicle is unexpectedly out of commission.

Invoice and Billing Accuracy

In addition to knowing when repairs are needed, knowing the exact amount of hours your equipment is in use will help keep your invoices and billing accurate. You can bill customers based on the runtime of the equipment or vehicle, eliminating the need to bill by the hour, half-day, or day, or by the odometer reading when the vehicle or equipment is returned to you. GPS tracking can automate the manual process of keeping track of miles and usage.

No matter if you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing you can recover stolen equipment or vehicles, better maintenance that can extend the life of your vehicles, or better billing accuracy, MiX Telematics can give you these benefits and more.

Benefits of MiX Telematics Leasing and Rental Fleet Management Software

With MiX Telematics, you can easily get access to mileage data, engine diagnostics, and optimize your billing. You can customize dynamic dashboard reports so that you can review and analyze your data by sorting and filtering for the exact metric you want.

  • Keep track of vehicles and easily locate them
  • Create maintenance reminders and alerts
  • Get accurate mileage and fuel information when vehicles are returned
  • Lower insurance costs with collision management
  • Monitor battery life and engine diagnostics to avoid unexpected breakdowns

Mix Telematics rental fleet management software gives you the ability to automate processes that ensure timely maintenance of your fleet. So, how does automation improve fleet maintenance?

When you only repair your fleet’s vehicles when they breakdown, you are instantly behind the eight ball. You may have a schedule for maintenance, but your vehicles may not follow it, depending on how and under what conditions they are driven.

By automating alerts that tell you when it is time for preventive maintenance, you can schedule your vehicle maintenance on your terms. In addition, you can also set up alerts for predictive maintenance based on information about the current condition of your vehicles. With preventative and predictive maintenance, you can:

  • Schedule technicians when it is convenient for your fleet.
  • Flag trends of failure in specific vehicle types and use this information to decide what types of vehicles to buy in the future.
  • Get proof for claims against the warranty if parts wear out too quickly and you have to submit a claim.
  • Prevent parts from wearing out prematurely and damaging other parts.
  • Track whether technicians are repairing and maintaining vehicles properly.

Car lease fleet management telematics software keeps track of all of the criteria such as engine hours and fuel consumption that fleet managers need to practice preventative and predictive maintenance.

How Does MiX Telematics Help Keep You on Top of Your Maintenance

Rental fleet management software gives you many ways to stay on top of your maintenance schedule. Firstly, you can pull daily and weekly reports on the status of each vehicle. Secondly, you can get notifications based on dates you select, such as mileage or a predetermined engine-related milestone.

For instance, if you’re using battery voltage as a parameter, you can be alerted when the voltage falls lower than a specified level while the vehicle is in use, or you can be alerted on a predetermined date to check or replace the battery. No matter what parameter you choose, car lease fleet management software can help set up and keep to a schedule with alerts based on past performance and current needs of you fleet.

  • Maximize revenue
  • Minimize costs
  • Streamline processes
