As a continuation of our People Module features, we are pleased to announce that Person Reminders are now available in Fleetio. With this handy option, you can set people-specific reminders for Licenses, Certifications or whatever is important to your business.
Just like a Vehicle Service or Renewal Reminder, you can easily add options in the Settings area of your account. Then all you have to do is set the due date, due soon threshold and users to be notified. It's that simple.

We are well into January already, and most of you in the northern United States and Canada are probably quite fed up with snow by now. It has been a strange winter for sure, and more is to come.

Others might be second-guessing the choice to drop money on making the switch.
