Collective Data has launched a free, online calculator that allows fleet managers to enter basic numbers from their operating and instantly generate a “ballpark” figure of possible savings through the implementation of software.

Collected Data is a provider of fleet and asset management software. It offers readily configurable software solutions for fleet maintenance, shop management, operations as well as for specific sectors like government, construction, and utilities.

“We developed the financial impact calculator to help fleet managers get a handle on the effect the right software can have in a fleet if used properly,” said Jason Wonase, president and CEO.

Projected savings are broken down into seven specific areas and a total is calculated for overall savings.

“Some fleets might already have a relatively low downtime rate, for example, so they wouldn’t benefit in that one aspect,” Wonase said. “But, they could benefit from an easier management process. Overall and in most cases, though, the financial impact calculator will provide a reasonable estimate.”

The calculator can be accessed from the home page of the Collective Data web site at http://www.collectivedata.com.
