Enhance fleet management through accurate reporting

Being an effective fleet manager requires full visibility over your company's vehicles at all times, but this can be a tough task even at small businesses.

However, fleet management software can allow you greater control by giving you the information you need at your fingertips to make the necessary decisions to optimise your operation.

Sophisticated reporting functions are a vital component of high-end fleet software, enabling you to monitor historical and current performance levels so that you can more accurately predict the future.

Here are just some of the reporting features you should expect from your fleet management software.

Vehicle utilisation

Knowing exactly how efficiently you are using your vehicles can create considerable savings, particularly if you have an over-sized fleet.

Similarly, if you do not have enough vehicles you may not be taking advantage of business growth opportunities.

Fleet management software can track the movements of your fleet and any associated costs, generating real-time reports that you can use to decide when and where to reallocate resources if necessary.

View reports based on different sites or departments, as well as calculating the average monthly kilometres of each car.

Exception reporting

Exception reporting is a great way of encouraging best practice within your workforce, as it enables you to identify any high-cost vehicles in your fleet.

By setting benchmarks and key performance indicators (KPIs) - whether by industry standards or your own - you can spot what cars are exceeding maintenance costs, kilometres travelled and fuel consumption.

Environmental rating reports

Being as environmentally friendly as possible is becoming more important for businesses around the world, and fleet management is no different.

The right software can measure the environmental performance of each of your vehicles, including providing a greenhouse emissions exception report that you can measure against eco-friendly KPIs.
