Common Challenges We Can Overcome Together
Labor Challenges and
Labor shortages in the distribution and warehousing industries strain resources, prompting you to require more from employees to meet business goals. You may have to rely on inexperienced employees to operate material handling equipment amidst pedestrians and racks of product, which poses serious risks. All of this can have negative impacts on productivity, morale, employee retention, and overall business health.
With Powerfleet, you have the real-time data and insights you need to revolutionize your fleet operations and increase efficiency, safety, and productivity. For example, you can manage access privileges to your material handling equipment, based on unique driver identification, to determine who uses it, how they use it, and when. By optimizing your safety and security levels, you’re more likely to attract and retain quality employees.
Pedestrian Safety in
The nature of your industry’s workplaces means pedestrians will often have close interaction with heavy, material handling equipment, such as forklifts — and this creates critical safety concerns. Preventing injuries while ensuring smooth, productive operations is of the utmost importance.
Powerfleet’s advanced AI-driven Pedestrian Proximity Detection system provides real-time driver notifications and identifies alert zones to help you improve safety. It works in conjunction with our Forklift Gateway (VAC) and Speed Manager products to help identify near misses, capture event details like breach location, time, and driver identification — and even slow or deactivate a forklift accelerator pedal when an alert zone is breached.
Meeting regulatory health and safety compliance requirements is paramount, and you simply can’t afford lengthy or disorganized processes that hinder adherence. Streamlining and automating compliance activities is crucial for optimal efficiency and risk management — but many manufacturing and automotive companies still rely on manual, error-prone processes.
Powerfleet empowers you to confidently and digitally manage regulatory compliance; streamline compliance workflows with automated safety checklists; control vehicle access to certified personnel; and reduce the risk of violations and litigation.
When material handling equipment is down, it slows operations and increases costs. You need a way to simplify maintenance efforts, enhance equipment longevity, and minimize unplanned downtime.
Powerfleet equips you with a proactive and preventive maintenance approach that leverages real-world, real-time usage hours and alerts to help you identify potential maintenance issues. This helps to ensure you don’t under or over-service your equipment so you can keep it running longer and maximize uptime.
Manual Management and
Disparate Data Systems
Too often, managers rely solely on manual processes to manage their MHE fleet and safety activities, as well as to create compliance, maintenance, and utilization reports. This can lead to blind, error-prone, biased reporting — and poorer results. Likewise, having disparate data systems across your fleet can hinder data unification efforts and create additional inaccuracies and problems.
Powerfleet provides an OEM-agnostic fleet intelligence platform that not only connects and harmonizes data from your on-campus fleet of forklifts and other vehicles but also unifies business operations through advanced ingestion and integration capabilities. For example, our Unity APIs enable data integration across diverse systems, allowing a seamless fusion of Powerfleet data with other business platforms. Furthermore, our detailed KPI dashboards offer an in-depth view into your operations, enhancing reporting accuracy, capturing real-time insights, and enabling swift, informed decisions.
Mixed Fleet of
It’s common to have a mixed fleet of various OEMs. However, manually gathering, monitoring, and interpreting data from an array of different systems results in incomplete insights, biased decisions, and operational inefficiencies.
Powerfleet’s OEM-agnostic fleet intelligence platform takes on the heavy lifting by ingesting data from all your disconnected data sources, including Powerfleet IoT devices, 3rd party devices, OEMs, and business systems. By transforming this data into real-world, decision-grade insights, you can make more informed decisions — and feel confident about expanding your fleet in whatever way benefits your operation. Our solutions are easy to install in any material handling equipment, and fast to implement as you bring in new vehicles and equipment.
