The IPWEA fleet management health check has always been an effective way for fleet practitioners to review their fleet management processes and activities to identify what is being done well and where improvements can be made.
IPWEA Fleet have now modernised the Third-Party Assessment and moved the entire process online to the IPWEA+ platform. This has made it significantly easier and more efficient for fleet practitioners to provide information and relevant material as part of the assessment.
If you are unfamiliar with IPWEA+, the online service is a solutions portal that provides tools to assist public works and asset management professionals. Some of the IPWEA+ resources include NAMS+, National State of the Assets, and E-Books to name a few.
Fleet Health Check Information to be assessed is collected through a 12-step process of information as follows:
- Organisation and General Management Practices
- Maintenance Management System
- Fleet Information Management System and Reporting
- Customer Service
- Staff Capabilities
- Health and Safety / Environmental / Risk
- Continuous Improvement
As responses to questionnaires and online information is provided by fleet practitioners, IPWEA Fleet assessors will now be able to check online whether data collection is still in progress, has been submitted for assessment, still requires more information or has been completed. In addition, it is anticipated that data will be available for general industry research and analysis by IPWEA, with outcomes of this research and analysis made public to benefit the fleet industry and done in a way to ensure anonymity of source organisations.
If your organisation is considering a comprehensive, independent, and detailed fleet review, the modernised IPWEA Third-Party Fleet Health Check may be just what your organisation has been looking for to identify the areas of greatest need.
