Looking back at some highlights of the past year and a few sneak peaks of what's coming in 2020.
Over the past year, we've been working hard to continue to develop a product that makes our customers' lives easier and enables them to better track, analyze and improve their fleet operations over the entire lifecycle of their assets. We couldn't have done this without an incredible team (we're hiring) and the continued support and thoughtful feedback from our customers (thank you!). We can't begin to express how much we appreciate having you as part of the Fleetio Family.
Fleet management doesn't exist in a vacuum, which is why Fleetio is built to address the entire lifecycle of our customers' fleets. Let's take a look at how our customers used Fleetio this year to be more productive and gain insight into their fleets:
2019 Release Highlights
In 2019, we released and improved features that created more value for our customers than ever before. We also developed more content, such as thought leadership articles and white papers, to help our customers continue to become better fleet managers.

Where we're heading
We're excited to announce some projects we've been working on to make Fleetio even better. Look out for these improvements early in the new year.
SAML User Provisioning
We're continuing to invest in security in 2020. Your fleet information is incredibly sensitive and this will further ensure only the right people have access to the information they need. Deactivate a user in your third-party authentication tool and they will automatically be locked out of your Fleetio account.
Improved Inspection Scheduling
Ensure inspections are submitted at the right time with inspection submission windows. Set parameters for how early an inspection can be submitted and when it will be considered overdue - increasing your scheduling flexibility.
Standardize Service Reminders throughout your fleet and add reminders to new vehicles much more efficiently. Service programs will be a central place for your preventive maintenance schedules, allowing you to change schedules in one place and update all relevant assets automatically.
