ARI, Mount Laurel, N.J., introduced ARI WatchList, a new tool available via the ARI insights portal that notifies a fleet manager of critical events as they happen, and allows such events to be monitored in a newsfeed format reminiscent of a social media feed.
ARI WatchList can track events such as accidents and downtime to allow a fleet manager to take immediate action. The ARI WatchList’s immediate notifications help limit the amount of productive time lost from a vehicle being down. When fleet managers are notified of a downtime incident, they can ascertain which vehicle is off-road, proactively contact the vendor before a purchase order is issued and make any alternate arrangements necessary to get the driver back on the road as quickly as possible.
When users click on an ARI WatchList notification, they can view all of the details surrounding the event. Any incident deemed of utmost importance can be pinned to the top of the feed to allow users to keep it front-of-mind.
The ARI WatchList also allows fleet managers to subscribe to notifications, which can be shared with other ARI insights users within the organization.
