A wireless VMS helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting
vehicle access to trained, authorized operators, requiring electronic vehicle
inspection checklists, and providing automated management tools relating to
vehicle accidents. A wireless VMS also helps reduce 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 equipment
accountability, ensuring vehicles are in the proper place at the right time,
and providing unique metrics on fleet utilization.
