Artificial intelligence is a concept that arouses a lot of fantasy. It is already a part of our daily lives and increasingly so in the automotive sector. Even if the fully autonomous car has not yet arrived on the market, the share of AI is tending to progress and is making its way into the environment of all professions.

Through perseverance and determination, WeProov offers fleet managers an application using this technology for the inspection of their fleet. But what are the practical ins and outs? Should we really believe in this utopia? Focus on the revolution of tomorrow!

Considerable time savings

The central interest of AI is simply to collect and analyse as much information as possible. A feat that even humans are not capable of. This analysis is a goldmine for fleet damage management tools. It will simply allow a better understanding of the state of the fleet in order to anticipate costs that will be dispensable in the future.

But in concrete terms, how can time be saved? During a precise vehicle inspection of each vehicle in its fleet, AI will allow a self-assessment of the damage, without having to travel: a very efficient solution at a distance, which is not negligible since the Covid health crisis.

THE IA WILL ALLOW FOR EXAMPLE TO :

- To be able to quote repairs automatically without having to do a manual quote,

- Access an instant process while using an objective solution,

- Easily monitor the status of a fleet of vehicles at any given time.

At the service of the fleet manager

The possibilities linked to AI show real potential. It is a real added value for fleet managers and executives who are running out of time. Analysing fleet damage in 3 clicks is priceless. It will allow them to focus on higher value-added tasks while ensuring a permanent control of their fleet and a quality service to their employees.

An important role in road safety

A damage management tool that uses AI will also enable a global road risk prevention strategy to be deployed while accompanying drivers from the moment they arrive in the company and then throughout the use of the vehicles.

All that is required is to personalise the content of the inspections requested and therefore to create specific missions for each stage (integration and handing over of keys, claim declaration, vehicle change, technical follow-up, pre-return) and to centralise the data. The automatic costing thanks to artificial intelligence will enable you to decide very quickly on the repairs to be carried out and therefore not to drive around with a damaged vehicle.

The fleet manager can interact at any time with his drivers, who are required to check the condition of their vehicles several times a year. This leads to a participatory approach, helps develop the company culture and makes drivers more responsible. In the short term, companies that use this type of tool see a clear reduction in damage to their vehicle fleet (15 to 20%).

Conclusion

As you can see, AI can simplify the life of the manager while making significant savings! Research is advancing rapidly and the future of fleet damage management and the automotive sector in general is only growing with the automation of tasks and prediction. Reducing costs while supporting employees on a daily basis: that is the goal of the fleet manager and with AI, it is possible! Have you taken the plunge? Maybe it's time to do something about it... ;)
