  • Vehicle information management – Companies can manage their fleet and vehicle maintenance more efficiently, as this component supports operational planning and preventative maintenance.
  • Overall equipment effectiveness – This component helps companies increase revenue by evaluating key performance indicators and improvements in equipment performance.
