10 Ways Fuel-Management Systems Make Your Job Easier

By OPW | Apr 17, 2014

In today’s economic climate where businesses are placing an extreme emphasis on implementing cost-saving measures, the importance of fleet managers continues to rise. In turn, the importance of fuel management also continues to grow. 

Fuel-Control-Group_1As a fleet manager, controlling fuel – whether it’s how much you’re getting or how much you’re using – is one of your most important job functions. However, no matter what the size of your fleet operation, it can be a never-ending symphony of vehicles moving in, out and through the yard, all at the same time. So performing the responsibility of controlling fuel costs can be a lengthy, frustrating process requiring time, manpower, and, maybe most importantly, money.

With this in mind, many fleet managers are turning to fuel-management systems to help make the job of tracking fuel much easier. Not only can utilizing a fuel-management system help relieve some of that job stress, but these systems can also provide many benefits to your company, including a positive return on investment, satisfied customers, positive cash flow, net profit, peace of mind and a better way of controlling costs.

In addition, below is a list of 10 enhancements that a top-of-the-line fuel-management system solution can bring to your fleet operations: 

  • Keeping an accurate track of a vehicle’s fuel consumption
  • Eliminate product loss
  • Detect UST or AST leakage
  • Centralized data management
  • Increased security
  • Overall control of the fueling program at a site with multiple locations
  • Ability to spot and control unauthorized use
  • Better documentation and reporting
  • More accurate pricing of fuels
  • Reduce driver entry errors
