WHAT IS VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (VIS)?
Vehicle Identification System (VIS) is the system created to control the fuel expenses of vehicle fleets. With this system, companies track and control their vehicle fleets to increase efficiency and profitability.
How does the Vehicle Identification System (VIS) work?
Through an interface attached to the vehicle, known as the vehicle identity unit (such as a keychain, sticker, vehicle depot antenna, etc.), data is shared with the pump, and this data is transmitted to the automation system. This data sharing includes the following information:
• License plate, company, mileage, operating hours, engine, hours of the refueled vehicle.
• Refueling date and type, quantity, and cost of fuel.
• Daily, weekly, monthly liter or monetary refueling limits for the refueled vehicle and refueling approval/rejection.
During refueling, the intermediate unit called the vehicle identity unit communicates with the fuel pump and transfers vehicle information. The system records and transmits the quantity and cost of the fuel supplied to the vehicle. This way, the VIS system ensures that refueling data for vehicles using the system is sent to the fuel company and billed to the vehicle owner company.
Advantages of the Vehicle Identification System
Depending on the system's capabilities, the reporting service allows you to obtain detailed information about your vehicles or fleet. You can easily access reports on refueling information, including liters, location, and how much fuel was consumed in a given period.
Depending on the number of vehicles you have, it enables you to make discounted fuel usage agreements with fuel companies.
It minimizes the time the vehicle spends at the station, resulting in time savings.
It allows you to set limits on vehicle fuel consumption and, for example, restrict refueling on weekends to achieve cost savings.
From an accounting perspective, it minimizes paperwork for companies and reduces the workload.
