Vehicle tracking reports offer a myriad of valuable data. From diagnostics to fuel usage, there are many tools at your disposal to overcome the fleet challenges you currently face. Whether you are looking to implement a safety program, a green initiative, or improve your customers’ experience, vehicle tracking reports provide actionable data to improve your mobile workforce.
But how do you know where to start? Depending on the provider you choose, there can be upwards of 40 different reports at your fingertips. That amount of data can be cumbersome if you don’t know how to utilize it.
The best way to figure out the right data to look at is to see how current users are taking advantage of it.
Here are the top five vehicle tracking reports in descending order that GPS Insight customers use and the challenges they are solving with the data.
5. Odd-Hours Report
Whether you are a business that requires your vehicles to be returned to the yard at the end of the day, or if you allow your drivers to take them home at night, unauthorized use and vehicle theft can be significant challenges. The way GPS Insight customers manage and combat these issues is with the Odd-Hours Report and alert. Companies that know a time range their vehicles should not be in-use define this as “odd-hours.” If any vehicle moves within that range (i.e. 9:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.), then they are notified either in real-time with the alert or can see a history of odd-hours data through the report. Companies like to utilize the alert for real-time action against theft, whereas the report comes in handy when trying manage and mitigate the personal use of vehicles.
