OPTAFLEET by IMPCO Technologies: for SAFER Forklift Operations

Thursday, 13 Sep 2018 ( #889 )
As a fleet manager it's crucial to your business not only to monitor the performance of your valuable assets and staff but to have access to immediate and secure information about your fleet at all times. Introducing the OptaFleet Advanced Fleet Management System.

How does it work?

With an extensive security model and a sophisticated service delivery platform the fleet manager is able to view real time information like vehicle location, driver identity, distance travelled, vehicle & operator utilisation, damage and critical event information. This can then be transmitted over the airwaves and delivered to any designated person. The OptaFleet web tool provides secure 24 hour access to collected data while reporting and analytics tools enable informed decisions to be taken that can improve overall fleet
and driver performance.

Improved operator safety:-

The OptaFleet Advanced Fleet Management System provides fleet managers with the tools and information necessary to monitor, manage and improve operator behaviour. The reports include a range of scoring and error reports that can be used to effectively improve safety and reduce risk.

Advanced operator access control:-

Using the latest RFID technology operator access control can be managed using either a specially designed key fob or in some instances the customers own RFID smart card, "one card does everything". The access control options can assist with managing driver licensing as the keys/cards can be preprogrammed with an expiry date. OptaFleet also has a series of user friendly management keys available; these management keys can be used to VOR dangerous trucks, manage downtime and report KPI's.

Customised pre-use safety checks:-

Ensuring that operators complete their pre use safety checks can be an impossibility to say the least let alone the cost associated with the purchase of stationary and the auditing process; in a lot of cases this can leave any critical failures unreported for some time. With the OptaFleet pre use check screen the fleet manager can have complete peace of mind knowing that each operator has accepted responsibility for completing their safety checks, the screen can be completely customised allowing for any check, any shift pattern or any vehicle type to be accounted for.

Improved utilisation and efficiency:-

Getting the most out of your vehicles and operators is a primary concern for all fleet managers; knowing where your vehicles are is only the beginning. The OptaFleet web tool provides fleet managers with a wide range of highly intuitive reports to enable an understating of your fleet and operation, this in turn enables changes to be made to maximise efficiency.

Intuitive vehicle and operator dashboard:-

With the intuitive day to day vehicle & operator dashboard you can quickly analyse what each vehicle or operator is doing at any time.

Comprehensive impact reporting:-

OptaFleet uses the very latest intelligent 3 way impact sensor to identify the operator involved, truck involved, location on site, severity and time and date of any impacts. Lower level impacts can be differentiated from higher levels and instant notification and active events (such as truck slow down) can be set accordingly.

Detailed vehicle and operator utilisation:-

Manage trucks and people better by identifying good and bad working habits; reports can be created by vehicle type, department or shift pattern.

Advanced tracking with event location log:-

Identify the exact location of any critical events such as impacts, overloading or simply where the vehicle was last located, identify if operators are using the most efficient routes, control the location and storage areas better to make your fleet more efficient.

Advanced driver scoring and performance monitoring:-

Instead of receiving lots of information of the different events the OptaFleet web tool will provide a comprehensive driver scoring report, instantly outlining drivers that require re-training.

Additional features and plug-ins for the OptaFleet system:-

With 9 fully configurable inputs OptaFleet can be tailored to monitor just about anything on your asset.

Some of the optionswe have included in the past are:-
  • Battery management, with a specially designed sensor we can monitor battery health
  • New driver recognition, OptaFleet can recognise novice operators and only allow limited functionality (vehicle dependent)
  • Monitor and record service and critical safety checks
  • Timed PIN code for delivery or short term hire trucks (coming soon)
