With the increasing applications of telematics technology and solutions in commercial fleets, there are fear that the technology will take over the position of fleet managers.

Where GPS formerly tracked positions and offered navigation help, new telematics products now offer a more detailed analysis and an almost interactive experience for drivers and fleet managers.

Will the technology eradicate fleet managers? On the contrary, the technology serves to aid fleet managers in performing their jobs more efficiently. With the help of new telematics products, like those from CareDrive, fleet vehicles can also be more eco-friendly and safe.

In the past, a fleet manager was for an individual who enjoyed working with vehicles and had an in-depth understanding of how they work and function. With a new emphasis on management and administration, many fleet managers see a clear path up the corporate ladder within the company. Their job description has evolved to the point that may include tasks such as transportation, distribution and management rather than simply managing a fleet of vehicles and their needs. 

Fleet managers must be forward thinkers, as well as multi-taskers that have developed strong social skills to work with both drivers and suppliers on a regular basis.They are more a great resource for cost cutting options since they can use reports, like those listed on online dashboards, and make educated decisions on how to make efficient business decisions.

CareDrive offers a variety of fleet management products for managers with innovative ideas on reducing fleet costs, improving company morale, and becoming environmentally friendly. Although the fear of technology taking over is present in the lives of many individuals, there are few areas where these advances can complete the same mental and intellectual functions as a human being.
