About Wireless Vehicle Management Systems
A wireless vehicle management system (VMS) helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators, providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and managing vehicle impacts. A wireless VMS helps reduce industrial fleet maintenance costs by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems electronically, scheduling maintenance according to actual vehicle usage rather than by calendar or manual data entry, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment. In addition, a wireless VMS helps improve material handling productivity by establishing accountability for the use of equipment, ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time, and providing unique fleet utilization metrics.
