4 Ways to Compete With the Big Fleets

It doesn't matter if you have four trucks or 400 – you have to get the most out of your assets for your company to stay competitive. That's why the big fleets invest in expensive fleet management systems that let them track their trucks and manage their costs.

For the mid-sized and small fleets, DAT has created DAT InView™, a fleet management system and ELD solution that gives you the same tools the big fleets use – starting at just $30 a month.

The easy-to-use system takes minutes to install in any truck and is ready to go straight out of the box, with built-in reports that you can customize to fit your business – no need for an IT department.

Below are just four of the ways InView lets you compete with the big fleets.
