The role of technology in employee transport management systems
For all these years, managing employee transportation traditionally has not only been time-consuming but also inefficient. However, with advanced technological solutions, managing employee transport has become much easier and a lot more convenient for all. Using new-age technologies like AI and machine learning, organizations can now automate their employee transport management and improve the productivity of their employees and instill a sense of safety and satisfaction in them as they commute for work.
Let’s understand the role of advanced technologies in revolutionizing the industry of employee transport management systems.
Automated Route & Roster Management
AI algorithms facilitate intelligent and efficient route and roster designing in employee transportation systems. These solutions take into consideration factors like employee locations, pick-up and drop-off points, seat occupancy, employee shifts, etc., to optimize the routes and schedule trips.
Using technology, organizations can now track their vehicles via live tracking. It enables transport administrators to track vehicle movements, identify any deviations or delays that were not pre-informed, and can take measures to rectify the inconvenience in real-time.
The admin console provides a bird’s eye view into all transport operations. Admins can schedule trips, manage multiple fleet vendors, live track vehicles, receive SOS alerts, and more. They can also view the analytics dashboard to know seat occupancy, vehicle usage, fuel consumption, and more. On the dashboard, users can experience utmost transparency, and reduce ambiguities.
Offer Ease of Use with Mobile Applications
An innovative employee transport management system like Safetrax offers dedicated mobile applications for employees as well as drivers where they can have all the necessary information in a single click. Employees can view their future trips, along with pick-up time and location, driver & vehicle details, vehicle ETA, and any real-time trip changes. In fact, the application also enables the employees to rate and review their trip experiences and share feedback with the transport manager. This adds to overall transparency in the system as well as in the organization.
Apart from this, the drivers can view their optimized routes with scheduled pick-ups and drops. Additionally, drivers can also verify the employee and themselves with a unique OTP, and start the trip.
Make Data-Driven Decisions with Reports and Analytics
Employee management systems’ data analytics functionality can help organizations derive vast data and analyze them to optimize processes. The data can be related to vehicle utilization, travel time, employee feedback, and fuel consumption are some critical examples. By making optimum use of these insights, transport managers can identify the points of congestion in the system and optimize processes to become more cost-effective and efficient.
Enhance Safety and Compliance
Technology has revolutionized safety for employees and employers, both. Employers can live track employees’ pickups and drops, integrate different verification methods like OTP, and share complete driver and vehicle details, all directly in the employee app. Additionally, employees can also trigger SOS alerts directly to the admin to report any accidents, medical emergencies, driver misconduct, and more.
The role of advanced technology cannot be overstated in the employee transport management system and its advent has only made life easier both for employees and organizations. This has helped in streamlining the fleet and putting efforts to make the everyday movements of the employees much safer and satisfactory. The accuracy that entails tech-driven operations is the major cause of adapting to the advancements.
