Managing a fleet of tractors can be a challenging task: you need to keep track of movements, consumption, maintenance, obtain an overview of work status on a daily and monthly basis, make forecasts for the next operations to maximise costs and returns. All of these activities require a great deal of effort.
Until recently, there was no way of obtaining constantly updated information on fleet status to answer typical questions such as: How are operators working? Where are they and are they following the work schedule? How much fuel have they consumed and what is the efficiency rate of the operation? What is the state of the machines, do they have any problem that requires your attention?
To provide answers for all of these questions, we have developed the innovative solutions incorporated in McCormick Fleet Management, the ideal tool to get a real-time overview of all your machines at a glance.
What is Fleet Management?
Fleet Management is the McCormick telematic system that lets you monitor the key tasks of your fleet of tractors to maximise efficiency.
The ISOBUS communication protocol and satellite geolocation systems provide information and data gathered from tractors and equipment.
This way, you can conveniently monitor fleet activity in real time from your desktop PC or mobile device.
What are the advantages of Fleet Management?
Fleet Management systems let you manage your fleet more easily and efficiently. The three key benefits include the ability to:
- monitor your fleet in real time, as you receive constantly updated information and data on the activity of your machines;
- analyse data to determine operating costs and optimise returns;
- rely on remote diagnostics and servicing to quickly identify and resolve any issues with the machines.
Monitoring your fleet in real time
You can keep track of the movements of the entire geolocated fleet and display the exact position of all tractors on a single map. The information is retained and stored in chronological order.
You can obtain the full information on the state of machines in real time: speed, engine rpm, work progress, hourly consumption, average consumption, and many other parameters, including the total average consumption of the entire fleet.
In addition, the Fleet Management system lets you outline clients’ fields accurately and store the data relating to operations, which will prove essential in case of later passes.
As you constantly monitor operations, you will be able to reduce margins of error, maximise returns and take action when certain areas or tasks require your attention.
