When a battery fails and communication is lost, it impacts your organization – from serving
customers to responding to an emergency. Yet monitoring and maintaining the status of a
large fleet of batteries can eat up time and money and beat up operational efficiency.
IMPRES Battery Fleet Management saves you the guesswork, complexity and costs of
managing hundreds or thousands of radio batteries and chargers wherever they are located.
Because Battery Fleet Management reduces this time-consuming task to minutes, you can
monitor batteries easily and effectively and your people can work safely and productively.
Confirms chargers are
appropriately distributed
throughout your organization

THE CHALLENGE
The high cost of low-performing batteries
Whether they’re communicating from the factory
line or the fire line, your workers depend on reliable
communications to get the job done, efficiently and
safely. Healthy batteries can make a significant
difference between time lost and productivity gained. But
managing and maintaining an extensive fleet of batteries
can be daunting and time-consuming. Without accurate
information on battery performance, you could be making
decisions that cost thousands of dollars each year.
Imagine the impact on productivity when a factory
supervisor loses radio power during a shift or the risk to
safety when a police officer loses communications on
a foot chase. Or the inefficiency when a resort director
can’t reach security during a large corporate event.
Your employees count on you to make sure their radio
batteries keep working strong, the whole shift long.
What to do? You could stock up on batteries and give
two to every user while storing a box of spares to ensure
they make it through a shift. That solution is extremely
costly, particularly if you’ve been asked to reduce
expenses.
THE SOLUTION
IMPRES Battery Fleet Management:
Better information for better decision-making
IMPRES Battery Fleet Management eliminates the
guesswork and expedites the entire process by
streamlining battery management to mere minutes.
Battery Fleet Management automatically and remotely
retrieves key battery data from any compatible IMPRES
charger so you can make accurate and informed decisions.
IMPRES Battery Fleet Management collects information
each time an IMPRES battery is inserted into an
IMPRES charger. You choose whether you want to
view predefined or user-customized reports. Easy-toread charts and graphs simplify and streamline fleet
management even with a large fleet of batteries.
Predefined reports include a database of all active
batteries; active batteries nearing end of life; battery
purchase reports for batteries reaching end of service
life; lost battery report; charger utilization report and
more to keep communications reliable and productive.
You could manually track battery status using the data
from the charger and radio displays, if available. But
if you’re overseeing a mid-to large-size battery fleet,
collecting data and analyzing it to make informed
decisions is challenging. Or you could leave it up to your
workforce to monitor the health of their batteries and
hope they are proactive.

Cut costs while you increase efficiency and productivity
With IMPRES Battery Fleet Management, you can make
the most from your existing fleet and avoid buying
more spare batteries than you need. It eliminates
the guesswork that leads to uninformed or excessive
purchases. And is a business-critical tool that provides
battery data that is current, accurate and comprehensive.
Because IMPRES Battery Fleet Management gives
you the data you need on battery health, you can
avoid relying on a calendar date or worker complaints
to replace batteries, stop throwing away batteries
prematurely, and set parameters that alert radio users
when to replace batteries.
If you’re responsible for managing a medium to large
fleet of IMPRES two-way radio batteries, now you can
significantly cut costs and dramatically improve your
productivity by automating purchase reports, identifying
problems quickly, categorizing exact battery capacity
needs for every employee and optimizing charger use.

Be confident your batteries work as long as you do
Giving employees healthy, long-lasting batteries that
work throughout a long work shift not only helps
increase productivity, but their confidence and safety,
too. First responders no longer have to take time off the
streets to return to the station with a non-working radio
battery. Security personnel don’t have to double back to
get instructions from resort management. And factory
supervisors can stay on the job rather than leaving to
exchange one battery for another.
IMPRES Battery Fleet Management is transparent, too.
Simply place the battery in the charger as usual and
the program automatically captures data and generates
reports. So you can be confident your battery is reliable,
healthy and working well – the entire shift and beyond.
PAYS FOR ITSELF
WITH EVERY
BATTERY
In a world where resources and budgets are stretched
thin, and proving fiscal responsibility with every purchase
is critical, IMPRES Battery Fleet Management more than
pays for itself. The following is an example of how two
public safety agencies–each with 20 precincts and 500
radio users–manage their battery fleets, impacting their
total capital expenditures over six years.
Public Safety Agency A manages the battery fleet
manually, purchasing a spare battery for each radio
user plus a pool of extra batteries (.5 batteries per user)
totaling 750 spare batteries.
Public Safety Agency B uses IMPRES Battery Fleet
Management and only purchases a pool of 500 spare
batteries, providing a spare to radio users’ whose battery
capacity do not meet minimum requirements.
