Before Switching to Simply Fleet
Lowe Electric Supply Co. needed a more time and cost effective way to manage their fleet of delivery vehicles. The issues causing operational challenges were:
Lowe needed a fleet management system that enabled them to operate as per DOT requirements, for their fleet of commercial vehicles.
The lack of an efficient system and platform to keep track of vehicle maintenance and inspections, which in turn affected keeping a track of operational costs.
Lowe required an efficient way to keep track of issues arising in vehicles and plan for timely inspection of the same.
The client’s previous fleet management system did not allow for one stop solutions. It did not cover all imperative requirements and was more rigid.
How Simply Fleet Worked
The intuitive Simply Fleet app empowers you to perform all essential fleet management tasks and monitor fleet health, with ease. Here’s what got the wheels turning for Lowe:
I like the aspect of being able to calculate what our vehicle cost is as far as service maintenance, repairs and fuel. Having this software and program is going to allow us to be more accurate in that regard.”
-Brandon Roberson, Inventory Control Manager, Lowe Electric Supply
Simply Fleet’s inherent automated systems allowed for scheduled reminders for fleet maintenance and inspections, making it the right fit for Lowe Electric. The automated system also enabled the client to stay on top of vehicle inspections and repairs – extremely beneficial in curtailing major repair costs, getting more accurate cost calculations and determining sale or upgradation of vehicles.
A comprehensive centralized location for all aspects of fleet management - such as fuel logs, repairs, receipts, mileage tracking and expense tracking - proved to be pivotal in ensuring more seamless operations.
Ease of Use
Simply Fleet has proven to be extremely easy to use for drivers and management alike. The much-appreciated user interface and system scalabality as per fleet size, make it a convenient, viable and cost effective option.
Customizable inspection forms allowed for Lowe to adhere to compliance under DOT regulations.

“What it’s going to do in the long haul is be able to help us prevent major repairs by staying on top of scheduled maintenance. And also being able to better keep track, by having a centralized location.”
