How Reporting Can Benefit Your Service Organization

By April 22, 2018 No Comments

When you have an entire business to operate, managing all of your fleet-related activities can prove to be a difficult task. But overlooking key areas in your operations can end up costing you more than what you bargained for.

With a GPS fleet management solution and reporting functionality, you can gain greater visibility into your fleet operations to see what’s working and what’s not.

Reports can benefit your business in more ways than one. Take a look:

Maintenance Schedule Summary Report:

A maintenance schedule summary report displays summary information for all maintenance schedules for a specific vehicle or for an entire fleet. Using this report ensures that preventative maintenance is occurring consistently and on schedule. Not only that, it extends the life of your vehicles, saving you money in the long run.

Start/Stop Report:

With a start/stop report, you know your vehicles first movement of the day and all movement up to the vehicles last stop of the day. You can analyze a vehicle’s time spent in transit, the time spent at each stop and the number and locations of stops each day. This report can also be used as a virtual time card to validate payroll hours.

Idle Report:

Use an idle report to identify high idling drivers and see how much money is being spent while idling. With this report, you can view the cost of idling based on gas prices and fuel efficiency that you set for your fleet. Eliminating excessive idling will help reduce your fuel operating expenses.

Speed Report:

A speed report allows you to identify consistent speeding offenders by showing a vehicles speeding incidents over a defined speed threshold for a given time period. Using this report will allow you to hold your drivers responsible while reducing your liability and insurance premiums.
