About Vehicle Management Systems
A Vehicle Management System (VMS) helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained operators, providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and sensing vehicle impacts. A wireless VMS also helps reduce fleet maintenance costs by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems electronically, scheduling maintenance according to actual vehicle usage rather than by calendar time, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment. In addition, a wireless VMS helps improve supply chain productivity by establishing accountability for the use of equipment, ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time, and providing unique fleet utilization metrics.
The PowerBox VMS is a cloud-hosted system designed for rapid deployment and benefit achievement, with no need to interface with a site's data network or IT support organization. The system is extensively pre-configured for easy installation. It features a combination of local radio frequency and cellular technologies for cost-effective, autonomous wireless data communications. With Internet browser-based dashboards and automatically emailed reports, PowerBox provides unique visibility of, and control over, fleet performance. The system is offered as a subscription service, with no upfront capital investment required.
