Software programs that manage fleets of vehicles and associated operating costs have proved to be useful to governmental organizations and educational institutions. Recently, nonprofits with smaller fleets have begun to consider how these programs can help them run their pools of vehicles more efficiently.
These programs can be attached to fuel cards, which allow users to pay for gas quickly. Benefits include tracking fuel costs, managing tax exemptions, identifying vehicles that run more efficiently than others and even identify drivers who know how to operate a vehicle more economically than others. Other programs manage the actual assets of a fleet, allowing for greater vehicle sharing and, perhaps, fewer vehicles.
