“We’ve leveraged our extensive experience customizing key control systems for fleet managers and purpose-built KeyWatcher Fleet to fit their specific needs,” said Fernando Pires, CEO at Morse Watchmans. “KeyWatcher Fleet goes well beyond key control for security purposes by providing significant management and operational benefits…”

KeyWatcher Fleet offers a wide array of tools to maintain and optimize vehicle usage while reducing many operational costs. Fleet managers can create user role-based “Pools”, or groups of vehicles, to automatically assign each vehicle accordingly. Flexible booking workflows enable customization to balance usage, ensure vehicle availability, and more. A range of service features makes it possible to report problems and automatically initiate new or scheduled work on each vehicle. System alerts notify management to specific issues such as an unauthorized booking attempt or expiring driver’s license.

“Morse Watchmans Smarts™” lets users create policies to enable automatic allocation of vehicles for each driver. Settings can be configured by things such as lowest mileage, most fuel, priority, and first in/first out. Each driver need only enter their code and the key for their allocated vehicle will be released to them. In the event a specific vehicle will not be available for its booking, drivers can be notified automatically via e-mail or text.

A convenient dashboard displays real-time status, bookings summary, vehicle use, and many other data points to provide the pulse of the fleet in an instant. Users can also generate quick reports using their chosen parameters to gain actionable insights on fleet utilization and overall operations.

Built on KeyWatcher Touch hardware, KeyWatcher Fleet uses the same 16, eight, and six-key modules, along with the same card and locker modules. Unique pin codes ensure only authorized individuals can access keys, or users can add an optional card or fingerprint reader for even stronger key security, allowing for the management of thousands of keys and users with a single system or network.

Like all Morse Watchmans key and asset control solutions, KeyWatcher Fleet is networkable and offers API support for integrations.
