GPS vehicle tracking allows you to do a lot in real time, but you also have the benefit or viewing historic fleet data. This can be very valuable when evaluating budgets, monitoring driver behavior, or making important business decisions.
6 Important GPS Vehicle Tracking Reports
Even if you already use a few GPS vehicle tracking reports, with more than 25 reports available, chances are you are missing out on some useful information. These are just six examples of the types of information you can get from your GPS system:
1. Mileage reimbursement report
If you reimburse employees or yourself for miles driven in a personal vehicle, you can greatly simplify the process with mileage reimbursement reports. The information is guaranteed to be accurate, and you save time by simply running a report to see the miles logged in a certain period of time.
2. GPS Vehicle Tracking Detailed Report
This report has a lot of powerful information that you can use to monitor driver behavior. You can see information such as:
- Ignition on and off
- Travel start and stop
- Geofence entry and exit
- Antenna disconnections
- Elapsed time
These and other events can be viewed on a map or in a list depending on your preference.
3. Landmark Report
If you use landmarks, you can run reports that show when a driver arrived, when they left, and how much time elapsed while they were there. You might use landmarks for important customers to confirm that drivers spent sufficient time there, or for places that you want drivers to avoid. Either way, you can use this report to quickly gather information.
4. State Miles Report
Operating in multiple states can get complicated when it comes to taxes and DOT reporting. The state miles report shows you when a vehicle entered and exited a state and how many miles were driven there.
5. Time Sheet Report
Verify employee time reporting more quickly with this report that shows the first time the ignition was turned on and the last time it was turned off. You will also see times at stopped locations.
6. Moving Report
Selecting the most efficient routes is important for saving fuel and optimizing labor time. You can use the moving report to show you what happens from vehicle start to stop on a particular route, including time idling. This report makes it easy to compare multiple routes and select the most efficient.
