Farnek, provider of sustainable and technology-driven Facilities Management (FM) in the United Arab Emirates, since 1980, has launched an in-house smart fleet management solution. This will optimize the performance of its transport fleet and improve service delivery. The solution, which covers Farnek’s entire transport fleet of more than 300 buses, vans, and cars across the UAE, was built by its in-house technology division, which after a lengthy process of research and development, has simply and ingeniously adopted and adapted the latest smart technology to produce a homemade solution.
The drivers log in, accept the notification based on a QR code sent to the smartphone in the vehicle and start their journey. The app automatically calculates and compares the estimated and actual journey times and presents the driver with Google Maps-based navigation, to show the most time-efficient route to take.
The operational dashboard can also generate incident reports, organize new transport schedules, search for the nearest and most relevant available vehicle, correlating with customer demand. A whole host of reports can also be generated by the system as well, from vehicle assignment and utilization to monthly expense reports. There’s also a driver’s module holding driving documents and records of any previous incidents or violations.
