Using TotalView fleet management software, insights from existing clients, telematics, third-party sources, and other reporting avenues, our consultants put big data to work to help our clients better manage their fleets.

Our fleet consultants are focused on thoroughly understanding your fleet, processes, and organizational culture to make tailored recommendations that take the broader context of your business into account. By pairing data with experience and a collaborative, client-centered approach, we can help make a significant impact on your fleet operations and your bottom line.
With telematics, we are able to create a Fleet Scorecard, which is a business review of your fleet and driver performance.
While reviewing your Fleet Scorecards and quantifying goals on an annual basis and by cost-per-mile, we determine exactly where your business can save on maintenance, fuel, and vehicle costs.
Our Fleet Scorecards have been proven to lead to significant cost savings. In one instance, they resulted in a 10% overall improvement in driver behavior and a 15% decrease in accidents.
First, our fleet consultants begin by reviewing:
With data from TotalView, we work with you to identify opportunities for improvement and use predictive analytics to deliver data-driven solutions that lead to meaningful change.
Once we have discussed opportunities and a tailored strategy is in place, we provide tools to monitor and manage fleet costs and trends. Our consultants use Fleet Scorecards to examine fleet costs and performance throughout the lifecycle of your vehicles, along with industry knowledge to deliver actionable information and targeted recommendations for improvement. We analyze major fleet costs, performance, behaviors, and sustainability goals to create benchmarks and target new opportunities.
Strategic fleet consulting is an ongoing, collaborative process. Our consultants will continually work with you to ensure that your goals are achieved and gains are maintained over time. We will work with you to maintain an open dialogue about your fleet strategy, and we will examine your fleet’s performance at a regular interval that makes sense for your business — quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.
We then offer proactive recommendations to drive continuous improvement, best practices, and superior performance. Together, we will help keep your vehicles and drivers operating at maximum performance while lowering your total cost of ownership.
