Any company managing fleets using spreadsheet software is exposing itself to increased risk, according to global provider of fleet management software Chevin Fleet Solutions.

The company revealed it encounters the scenario, often when dealing with larger fleets.

There are a number of businesses still relying on spreadsheets or paper-based reporting structures to manage their fleets, and the limitations and risks of employing such an approach are immediately apparent.

Struggling with increased risk, higher costs and inadequate reporting

“These companies will struggle to deliver the levels of data and reporting often needed to effectively manage areas such as cost control and compliance,” said David Gladding, Global Director of Sales and Marketing at Chevin Fleet Solutions.

“Using such methods is a high-risk strategy that can prove slow, costly and hard to audit.” he added.
