Vehicle downtime is one of the biggest headaches for any fleet manager.
The simple fact is that when a vehicle’s not working, it’s costing money.
Act now to book your trial and learn how Lightfoot's fleet management solution can keep you on the road.
Lightfoot can be one of the most powerful weapons in the fleet manager’s arsenal when it comes to keeping vehicles on the road and performing at their best.
In essence, the system works to improve driver behaviour and the resulting gains make for a 40% reduction in accidents and a 45% reduction in vehicle wear and tear.
For these reasons, Lightfoot is highly recommended by insurance underwriters and brokers including Ageas, Allianz, Aon, Aviva, Protector, RSA, QBE, Gallaghers and Towergate and can even help fleets to reduce their premiums.
By cutting high-risk driving behaviours and ‘live’ coaching drivers to be kinder to their vehicles, Lightfoot can slash downtime and its associated costs.
These costs could include the likes of everything from unscheduled vehicle maintenance to expensive replacement parts like clutches, brakes, tyres and suspension.
And that’s not to mention the hidden costs of having a vehicle off the road like renting a replacement, inconvenience to customers and reputational damage.
All of this can make fleet compliance a nightmare and adds unplanned, unbudgeted and unwelcome expense that any business could do without.
Even though electric vehicles have fewer wear and tear parts, Lightfoot can still make an impact on downtime, with drivers less likely to be involved in accidents and less likely to place undue strain on the vehicle.
Finally, because those vehicles fitted with Lightfoot tend to have been driven more sympathetically, operators can expect a further return on investment when it comes time to defleet. Typically, vehicles that have had Lightfoot fitted, tend to fetch more at auction when they reach the end of their cycle.
Lightfoot’s vehicle check capability is quick, easy, and keeps drivers accountable.
Drivers are able to perform a series of daily checks that make fleet compliance and duty of care a cinch, without the need for time-consuming paperwork.
Imagine a world with no more clipboards and illegible handwriting. Lightfoot’s daily vehicle checklist is integrated in the drivers’ app, with rewards that incentivise getting the job done.
Drivers simply highlight advisory and failure items using the app and submit the form when they’re done. Easy!
Pro-actively manage your fleet with Lightfoot’s Vehicle Health Management functionality.
See vehicle fault codes as soon as they register in the ECU and schedule proactive maintenance.
Encouraging and rewarding smoother driving doesn’t just save fuel and reduce emissions. Ian Thorn of City Electrical Factors (CEF), one of the UK’s leading electrical distributors, endorses Lightfoot for cutting downtime by up to 45% through reducing wear and tear on vehicles.
