Fleet tracking technology offers so much more than simple track-and-trace functionality. With features like automated reports, you have access to key data to help you manage virtually every aspect of your fleet operations. To give you an idea of the many ways you can utilize fleet tracking reports to benefit your business, we have compiled a list of our top five customer favorites. Here they are:
- Start/Stop Report: The Start/Stop Report shows you a vehicle’s first movement of the day and all movement up to its last stop of the day. You can use this report to see where your drivers stopped throughout the day and how long they spent at each location. This can help you to validate jobs and resolve customer disputes.
- Detailed Activity Report: This report provides an itemized list of vehicle and driver activity for any time period selected. You can use this report to see which drivers are following the rules of the road and which need a little more reinforcement. This is a great tool to use if you need a quick and easy way to gain insight into driver behavior.
- Fleet Status Report: The Fleet Status Report takes a snapshot of your fleet. This is an excellent tool for locating the closest vehicle to a point and determining which drivers are available for a job. With this report, you can improve customer service, dispatch and job response time and reduce vehicle mileage.
- Begin/End Day Report: This report contains the starting point and ending point for a selected driver during the timeframe specified. You can view a driver’s start-of-the-day and end-of-the-day as well as the number of hours worked. You can also use this tool as a driver’s ‘virtual’ timecard to better identify and manage overtime hours.
- Idle Report: The Idle Report provides an accurate way to monitor excessive vehicle idling within your fleet. You can see how long your drivers have been idling and how much its costing you based on current gas prices. Being able to monitor this type of behavior can help to increase fleet productivity and reduce fuel-operating expenses.
