Case Study:
Triumphs and Lessons Learned in
Fleet Management

As the former Director of Information Systems for a notable Equipment Dealership, I encountered numerous challenges while trying to implement a Fleet Management Solution. The difficulties we faced with a manufacturer-owned platform not only impacted our sales but also raised concerns about data security and profitability. Frustrated by the lack of suitable options available at the time, we had to comply with the manufacturer’s requests. Eventually, I founded URDesigns Inc., where we developed a Fleet Management Solution designed to address these issues and revolutionize how equipment sales, rental, and service companies manage their fleets.

The Manufacturer's
Promised Solution

Initially, we were excited about the prospect of using a Fleet Management Solution from our manufacturer. However, we quickly realized that this platform required us to input sensitive information, leaving us vulnerable to potential data misuse and interference from the manufacturer’s National Accounts team. This resulted in the loss of a significant account to National Accounts and then a competitor, leaving us disillusioned and eager for a more independent solution. 

Parts Sourcing and Profitability Challenges

To compound our troubles, the manufacturer’s parts supplier had access to our fleet data, leading to questions about our parts sourcing. Being forced to order all parts from the manufacturer eroded our parts’ profit margins. This issue reinforced the need for a Fleet Management Solution that would allow us more control over our fleet data and operations. 

Competitor and Third-Party Solutions

We explored alternative options, including competitor-provided and third-party Fleet Management Solutions. However, both choices came with their own drawbacks. Relying on competitors meant entrusting them with our valuable customer lists, potentially exposing us to future competition concerns. On the other hand, third-party solutions often dictated our profit margins and were not as tailored to our specific needs. 

The Birth of URDesigns Fleet Management Solution

Frustrated by the limitations of existing solutions, we decided to create our own independent Fleet Management Solution at URDesigns Inc. Our goal was to provide a comprehensive platform that empowered companies to efficiently manage their fleets while ensuring data security, transparency, and cost-effectiveness.

With the insights provided by our platform, we were able to navigate the challenges and operate with minimal losses.
