THE DIGITAL DIVIDE: DOES YOUR FLEET MANAGEMENT ORGANIZATION HAVE A PLAN FOR STAYING ON THE RIGHT SIDE?

In recent years, the fleet management profession has begun to undergo fundamental changes in its approach to management decision making. Older methods are being replaced by more objective, quantitative information-based methods using management science principles and techniques. This shift stems, in part, from growing pressure on fleet managers to maintain or improve service levels and quality while holding the line on or reducing costs. This article discusses the importance of information technology (IT) in helping to implement more scientific methods into fleet management, and focuses on the need for organizations using such technology to develop an IT plan to ensure the highest level of success.
