Fleet FAQ? Fuel Management

Q. So, my fleet will all be electric self-driving vehicles deployed with delivery robots? When is this happening so I can retire?

A. Fleets are primed for technological change for sure, but it’s right to ask: When the future fleet arrives, will it be an improvement? Sure, your vehicles might be autonomous, dutifully following all your rules on fueling, idling and safety without a coffee break. But what if they get hacked? You like the lower emissions from your EV vehicles … even if you can’t figure out how much you’re spending on a charge, or how to do any of your usual fuel management reporting. And of course we’ll all love swipeless, cardless payments -- until we find out fraudsters have caught up with the innovation. In the future fleet, your old woes may be gone but you might have some new ones -- mostly linked to the security of your data -- if we don’t do it right.
