The Geotab tagline is “management by measurement”. This is one of the most beneficial features of fleet tracking, because being able to derive useful insights and data about your fleet can let you, as the manager or owner, make better decisions to improve your business. Your fleet management software will deliver you all the insightful information you need to improve your business.
Insights For Your Business
Through our end-to-end fleet management solution, from the tracking devices in the vehicles to the fleet management software on your desktop, we can help improve your business. Here’s how.
Reduce Distribution Costs & Fleet Miles
Daily routes are created using powerful algorithms and street-level routing, in conjunction with your business constraints.
Increase Resource Utilization
Make better use of existing resources by delivering more and driving less. The answer to increasing volume is not always to put more vehicles on the road, but to make smarter, more efficient deliveries.
Make Sound Business Decisions
Understand how delivery costs affect the profitability of each customer by knowing the actual cost per stop.
Set Driver Standards
Creating route plans and gathering actual information allows you to set performance standards and expectations – which can result in less overtime and better driver performance.
Decrease Routing Time
Let your routers/dispatchers spend less time configuring routes and more time assessing what-if scenarios to produce better, more efficient routes.
Prepare for holiday or seasonal spikes and other “what if” scenarios.
The fleet management software by Geotab comes with over 30 standard reports, as well as the ability to customize reports specific to your needs, so you can continually be evaluating and improving on your success. Some standard reports include:
- Driver score (idling, speeding, after hours).
- Driver manifests.
- Resource utilization.
- Customer delivery cost.
- Route summaries.
- Fuel usage.
- Vehicle status.
- And much more.
Did you know? With your Geotab software, you can generate an Automated Fuel Tax Report for IFTA. This is a time-consuming report to build on its own – to say the least – but the Geotab software makes it easy as a click of a button.
Example: Driver Performance Reports
Your fleet management software dashboard includes a variety of driver performance-related reports and stats. The left graphs show driver scores for a previous week based on how much their vehicle was speeding, idling, or used after hours. The right-side graph shows percentage of idling time for each driver the day before.
These are just a few of the performance metrics you can look at – giving you more insight into your fleet so you can manage better.
Save and Send Reports
Through the fleet management software, you can save a report to your computer at any time in excel or other formats for your own analysis.
You can also schedule reports to be automatically sent to other people, such as sales staff or management. This is especially convenient if other staff need to know what’s happening but don’t want to have to log-in every time.
