Transport | Fleet Management
The company offers GPS and sensor-based technology along with information management services. The Fleet Management solution is compatible with iOS, Android devices, and in-vehicle systems. It provides both real-time and historical data to track, monitor, and manage vehicles, people, and assets. The tracking solution utilizes various communication technologies like 4G, LTE, Cat 1M NB-IoT, Satellite, WiFi, and Bluetooth for constant connectivity worldwide.
With this system, companies can monitor personnel location and asset/vehicle utilization, enabling them to comply with health, safety, environmental, and company regulations. It emphasizes that adopting and properly utilizing a Fleet Management (FM) system is essential for gaining the visibility required to effectively manage assets and maintenance.
A Fleet Management system should facilitate the integrated application of:
- Accounting and Finance
- Asset Management
- Project Management
- Inventory Management
- Health Safety & Environment Management
- Human Resources
The Fleet Management platform is cloud-based software designed for companies involved in physical asset maintenance. Its primary goal is to help these companies achieve world-class performance by reducing maintenance costs, prolonging asset lifespan, minimizing asset downtime, and enhancing resource management. The platform offers a range of useful features, and user feedback is regularly incorporated into its development.
This platform is a collaborative effort between the provider and its users. Users benefit from a high-performance infrastructure without the hassle or cost of managing their hardware. As a Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, the company ensures optimal performance, robust security, and continuous monitoring of the environment. For businesses offering maintenance services or selling assets with warranty commitments, ES Fleet Management is an ideal solution to meet their maintenance needs effectively.

Adopting a Fleet Management system offers several benefits, including:
Proactive Asset Maintenance: It enables a proactive and efficient approach to asset maintenance.
Reduced Asset Downtime: It leads to a reduction in asset downtime, minimizing disruptions.
Fewer Emergency Repairs: By addressing issues before they become critical, it reduces the need for emergency repairs.
Agile Configuration: The system allows flexible configuration of processes, object definitions, visibility, and security.
Lower Inventory Costs: It results in savings through reduced inventory costs.
Increased Maintenance Productivity: It boosts maintenance productivity, ensuring tasks are completed efficiently.
Improved Asset Traceability: It enhances the ability to trace and track assets effectively.
Warranty Cost Recovery: There is an increase in the ability to recover warranty costs for assets.
Reduced Business Process Costs: It leads to a reduction in overall business process costs.
Enhanced Compliance Capability: It improves compliance capability, making it easier to achieve certifications like ISO 9001 and 55000.
ES offers three key services:
System Implementation: Experienced project staff will interview your organisation, understand your processes, and gather data to execute well-developed implementation methods. The goal is to help you go live with the system faster than expected.
System Integration: Technical experts can seamlessly integrate your system with third-party systems or electronic peripherals like barcode readers and RFID tracking hardware. This integration is designed to be cost-effective and straightforward.
Maintenance Consulting: Assist you in setting up maintenance procedures, developing key performance indicators (KPIs), generating reports, establishing metrics and preventive maintenance triggers, and creating equipment and materials lists, among other maintenance-related tasks.
The implementation process consists of five phases:
Phase I: Detailed Analysis In this phase, the company collaborates with clients to understand their support needs and challenges. They categorize areas as green (in good shape), yellow (requiring attention but not urgent), or red (needing immediate attention) and provide recommendations accordingly.
Phase II: Implementation During this phase, the company implements the solution with minimal disruption to end-users. Users gain access to the Enterprise Systems AU Support Portal, knowledge base, and video library. The key goals include minimizing disruptions, delivering a client-approved solution, and keeping clients informed of the progress.
Phase III: Documentation Here, the notes gathered during implementation are transformed into comprehensive documentation. This ensures that knowledge is not reliant on specific individuals and that clients have access to complete process documentation, including how-to documents and videos for end-users.
Phase IV: Maintenance This phase focuses on proactively maintaining the system to ensure operational readiness. Activities include applying monthly application updates, providing notifications about new features, implementing a comprehensive data backup plan, and minimizing downtime during database restores. Scheduled maintenance and updates are performed outside of regular business hours, with advance warning to end-users.
Phase V: Review and Improve In the final phase, the company plans for the future. This involves ongoing end-user training through the Learning Management Systems (LMS) Portal, regular reviews of client operations, scheduled meetings to ensure client expectations are met, and discussions about new feature requests when needed. The aim is to maintain high standards and continually enhance the system.
