About Vehicle Management Systems

A wireless Vehicle Management System (VMS) helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting the use of industrial equipment to trained, authorized operators, and by providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists. A wireless VMS also helps reduce maintenance expenses by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting checklist issues in real time, basing maintenance schedules on actual vehicle usage rather than calendar time, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment. In addition, the system helps improve equipment utilization and reduces the total cost of fleet ownership by ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time and streamlining work flow.
