Pocket Box Introduces Asset Management to SME Fleet Software Solution

Pocket Box has enhanced its fleet software solution to meet growing demand from SMEs for an all-in-one system to manage vehicles, drivers and associated equipment. The new asset module within Pocket Box Fleet will provide added functionality to help customers maintain, monitor and protect a wide range of powered, unpowered and portable equipment within their operations.


“Ever since the launch of Pocket Box Fleet, our customers have been asking for a simple way to manage other equipment alongside their fleet operation,” explains Jim Finnegan, CEO of Pocket Box Ltd. “Our latest software development will make it possible to bring everything together into a single system, so they have complete visibility and control over their physical resources.”


The asset module is highly flexible, so it can be tailored to manage any type of equipment, with comprehensive maintenance, compliance and inventory management features. This can include powered equipment such as plant, forklift trucks and materials handling products, as well as unpowered assets including trailers, containers, skips and tools.

Using the Pocket Box Fleet app, drivers will now be able to undertake a tool audit at the same time as daily vehicle and equipment safety checks to pinpoint the last known location and condition of smaller items that have been allocated to them. This will enable fleets to keep track of portable assets to ensure mobile teams have the tools needed to complete their jobs, while minimising the impact of lost and stolen equipment.


“Our aim to deliver a digitised solution to eliminate labour-intensive operational processes that are causing an unnecessary headache to SME businesses. By bringing together the management of vehicles, equipment and drivers, our customers can save both time and money, while achieving the highest levels of health and safety compliance. The asset module will also enable us to introduce new security features moving forward that will help companies combat the issue of equipment theft,” adds Finnegan.


Pocket Box is a cloud-and app-based software company that has developed a comprehensive eco-system for the consumer motoring, automotive, fleet, road transport and construction sectors. The feature-rich eco-system is designed for ease-of-use and to support multiple integrations with third-party technology partners, enabling Pocket Box to deliver advanced vehicle, driver and equipment management solutions.
