Arsenault Associates has announced its Dossier fleet maintenance management software program now includes a greater emphasis on fuel cost reduction with the goal being to help fleets reduce fuel costs by 10%.
“We are in the middle of a release development cycle, but this issue is so important that it dictates a mid-course correction for us,” said Bob Hausler, Arsenault Associates vp-marketing and technology. “Much of the information needed is already in Dossier, but needs to be better exposed so it can be leveraged.
“Our development team will combine fuel consumption and cost data with driver, vehicle and tire data to create a new fuel management system that automatically identifies and alerts the fleet manager of poor performing drivers and equipment,” he continued. “It will include automated exception notices, consumption and cost trend analysis, and comparative reporting that highlights items and issues negatively affecting fuel economy. Most importantly, these enhancements will be made quickly and are expected to be delivered to Dossier users in less than 12 weeks."
Dossier will provide automated operational efficiency comparisons that will rank drivers by efficiencies and variations to equipment norms. This will help fleet managers easily identify problem drivers and quickly raise the fleet’s mpg mean average.
