with MiX Telematics.
Cost-effective fleet management solutions by MiX Telematics put you in control, enabling you to:
Collect real-time data on your vehicles
Minimise FBT exposure and ensure tax reports are accurate and compliant
Optimise fleet utilisation and control or even reduce fleet size
No matter the size of your department, opting for a
reliable fleet management solution will give you a crystal
clear view of your fleet as well as the means to manage it
optimally. This translates into cost savings and the ability
to meet your duty-of-care responsibilities.
Do you have a clear picture of how your vehicles are being used?
How much do you actually know about your vehicles and how they’re being driven?
How much do you really know
about your fleet?
Your vehicle fleet is a large proportion of your
expenditure and risk, but how much do you
really know about your fleet usage? With
recent changes to Fringe Benefit Ta x (FBT)
rates, it is more important than ever to work
with precise fleet data.
This translates into valuable business
insight, allowing for the identification of
opportunities to save costs, reduce risk
and improve compliance. To realise these
benefits, it’s necessary to look beyond just
FBT management and instead consider a
comprehensive fleet management solution.
Knowledge is power
Fleet management solutions by MiX Telematics work by
placing on-board computers into vehicles, which capture and
transmit fleet usage data. The data itself can be accessed
through a secure and easy-to-use web-based platform.
In addition, comprehensive reports can be generated from
the data and used to make informed and timely decisions
about how best to optimise fleets.
Customers can drill down into the detail and report on key
Business vs Private use
Vehicle Utilisation Reports (to identify how many hours
per day/month vehicles are being used)
Fuel Usage and CO2 emissions (per vehicle/driver or
per department/work group)
In addition, there are other, powerful reports available to suit
different fleet manager reporting requirements.
Using data to
improve driver safety
The data captured by MiX Telematics In-Vehicle Monitoring
Systems (also known as IVMS) can also be used to enhance
driver performance. With work-related crashes costing the
Australian economy $1.5 billion a year and accounting for
approximately 50% of occupational fatalities* it’s important
to ensure that vehicles are viewed as an extension of the
workplace (and therefore need to meet Occupational Health
and Safety (OHS) obligations).
Monitoring a driver’s behaviour in terms of whether he or she
is speeding, cornering or braking harshly makes it possible
to identify where driver training or coaching is required to
improve driver behaviour, while at the same time potentially
reducing the running costs of vehicles (through lower wear)
and increasing resale value. MiX Telematics offers a range
of behind-the-wheel and online training courses to suit all
business requirements. Where required, MiX Telematics
also customises training programmes to suit customer-
