When it comes to managing a fleet business, there are a number of items to track and be concerned about regarding your vehicles.

The 10,000 foot overview

With Zubie, you’ll feel like a giant, standing 1000 feet tall with a 10,000 foot overview of your entire fleet operating business. You’ll be able to optimize your fleet to run as efficiently as possible, at the best price points for your business. More importantly, you won’t have to waste time tracking everything individually or trying to understand what numbers to even look at. Zubie makes it all easy and clear for you with its simple interface.

Now, while any fleet business owner knows that ultimately it is their people that matters the most, one of their next greatest concerns is the health of their vehicles and how optimal they are running.

When it comes to the health of your vehicles, there are a number of metrics that Zubie can track  --  these stats include the likes of:

  • Hard Braking
  • Rapid Accels
  • Idle Time
  • Top Speed
  • Minor speeding
  • Major Speeding
  • Avgerage MPG

And, these stats aren’t just going to look at whether your drivers are just simply hard braking or speeding once or twice. We all have places to go and things to do, and none of us always stay at or under the speed limit. What Zubie does monitor is egregious behaviors so you can give this back to your drivers to improve their performance. Also, it will ensure your drivers are taking optimal care of your vehicles so you don’t have to perform run of the mill maintenance that you weren’t expecting.

So…that’s great about helping my drivers….but how does Zubie help me optimize my vehicle's maintenance so I can stay on top of my fleet?

First of all, Zubie can be set with reminders to remind you of when your vehicles need to have maintenance performed. While cliche, it’s still very true when it’s as simple as ‘set it and forget it.’ Here are a few of the activities that allow for Zubie reminders to be set:

  • Battery Replacement
  • Tire Rotation
  • Brakes
  • Oil Change
  • Tire Replacement

You can track by date when these need to be confirmed, and also match with your odometer as well. On top of that, Zubie’s partnership with Fleetio will allow you to further track service tasks, vehicle inspections and maintenance costs.

The Real Vehicle Maintenance That Matters Most with Zubie: Diagnostics!

However, while these practices are preventative, what really makes a difference in optimizing your vehicle maintenance standards is Zubie's diagnostic capability.  Should any of your vehicles be in need of a diagnostic check or if your car’s computer deems there may be an issue, Zubie will not only send you the code for the issue your car is having but help you understand the severity before taking it to the mechanic. There is no need to wait for a call from your driver asking you to come help them out, because you will already already know that there is a potential issue with the car. And, with Zubie's partnership with RepairPal, you not only have an idea on what caused the issue but be provided with a list of local repair shops so you can figure out how best to handle the situation.

Stop wasting your time wondering what’s going on with your vehicles and how to maintain them well, and proactively tackle any maintenance issues that could be arising. Stop wondering if they need to be checked and if they’re running right or not and taking shots in the dark.

Contact Zubie today to find out how well we can help you keep your vehicles maintained.

At Zubie, we pride ourselves on the simplicity of use, a great low cost and contract free agreements so you can pay as you go.
