U Book-It - Overview

U Book-It on https://ubookit.eroad.com is EROAD’s web based vehicle pool booking system that integrates with the EROAD Depot to help you improve utilisation and management of your vehicle pool and reduce administrative overhead.

U Book-It provides an easy to use booking calendar that enables staff to book pool vehicles. 'Find a Seat' is an optional up-grade which allows bookers to book a seat in a existing vehicle booking to further promote car pooling. Via a secure interface to the EROAD Depot bookers can see real time location of pool vehicles and improve vehicle utilisation by enabling auto-cancellation of a booking in the event of a no-show.

Utilisation reporting helps you boost pool vehicle availability, make material cost savings, and analyse actual usage to help you ‘right-size’ your fleet. The Booking report allows you to access a record of all bookings and support easy charge back to cost centres.

 

Email notifications

Email reminders ensure that staff remember to use the cars they have booked.

A booker will also receive an email notification 15 minutes before a booking is due if a vehicle they have booked runs late and is not back at home base by then. The booker can click through from the email and book another vehicle.
