Timely and accurate electronic data collection
- Enables the fleet operators to eliminate time consuming data entry (and related errors), and obtain accurate statistics about the fleet.
Fuel savings from reduced idling
- Leads to reduced fuel consumption, reduced number of oil changes, increased engine life, and less time in the maintenance shop.
Savings from improved driving behaviour
- Increased driver awareness leads to lower fuel consumption and reduced wear on the engine, brakes, tires, transmission, etc.
Savings from accident reduction
- Improved driver behaviour reduces accidents, resulting in less time spent in the maintenance shop, and more time being available for operations.
Savings from reduced repair costs
- Less time in the maintenance shop leads to savings in repair costs, and higher vehicle utilization.
Savings from accurate fuel usage recording
- Accurate fuel consumption recording leads to better fuel efficiency calculation for a vehicle and thus eliminating low efficiency engines.
Savings from better utilization and increased availability of current fleet
- The reduction in total hours of vehicle down time leads to savings from having to buy fewer vehicles to cover the loss of usage of the disabled units.
Reduced green house gas
- CO2 from conventional gasoline = 19.6 pounds/gallon
- The combustion of each gallon of conventional gasoline produces 4.867m³ or 171.88ft3 of CO2.

Savings from transmitting operational data
- Issuing/tracking work orders
- Up to date information always available to drivers.
