Small fleets may find it beneficial to
have functionality with the ability to
hide software options that they aren't
currently utilizing. That way, they still
have room to grow into the software
and expand operations in the future,
but they aren't being confused by
features or details that aren't using
initially. Start small and add on additional functionality as it is needed.
For larger fleets, the concern is scalability, security, and configuration. Large
fleets may benefit from automation and
trying multiple systems to compare at
the same time. For these fleets, integration is especially important, as well
as the flexibility of working in multiple
currencies or multiple languages.

Although most computerized maintenance management system (CMMS)
software options can accommodate
both small and large fleets, the features that a fleet tends to prioritize
can depend on the size of the fleet.
Generally, smaller fleets will need a
foundation to manage their assets and
easily integrate into the other software
systems they already use. Because of
their smaller size, they will need to be
able to drive a return on investment
relatively quickly, so warranty and
tracking any kind of inventory, especially
slow-moving inventory, is critical.

20 Fleet Maintenance | June 2019

In a fleet testing different vehicle
options, say one that is operating a
combination of electric vehicles, hybrid
vehicles, diesel, or gas, having a software that's flexible enough to help
benchmark each of these vehicle types
and deliver insight to uptime is critical.
A good CMMS software should be able
to help these fleets compare the cost
per mile, cost per hour, or "cost per"
for any other type of measurement to
give fleets an idea of how these vehicles
compare with each other in terms of
overall cost and efficiency for the fleet.
Large fleets will have a lot of the
same maintenance needs as smaller
fleets but will also have multiple locations and potentially multiple lines
of business, so the system will need
to be able to manage security and
permissions, as well as reporting, in
a much more sophisticated way.

ยป When choosing a CMMS software, start by evaluating the needs of your fleet.
