GPS tracking: The best choice for you
With GPS tracking reports, users have the option to pull data for an individual device or an entire device group. In part one of this series we talked about how viewing reports online would be a great choice when viewing data for one vehicle at a time or, possibly, very small reports for the entire fleet. If management finds that they need to go back and review large chunks of data for the entire fleet or are having to constantly run larger reports then downloading the GPS tracking reports is a better choice.
Pulling up GPS tracking reports via the downloading method works best when you know the data is going to be more bulky. For example, if you desire to see historical playback data from 90 days back this type of data is best pulled into a report that will be downloaded as the attempt to view that much information online may bog down your computer. Downloading reports is a good idea when they’re needed for the entire fleet, too. Furthermore, the benefit to downloading this type of data rather than viewing it online is the ease of saving the spreadsheet of information for printing it off later if need be.
We hope after learning about reading your reports online versus downloading them that you know enough to make the best choice for you. The main thing to keep in mind when deciding between “View Online” or the “Request Download” option is the size of the report.

GPS tracker: Ideal solutions
A day in the life of a fleet manager’s work can be enough to make the average person’s head spin. These managers have to stay organized and be successful at running the operation. Luckily, GPS tracker devices have introduced simpler solutions to solving all kinds of conundrums. A big task for managers is sorting through a lot of data and that’s where GPS tracker reports really come in handy. In part one, we talked about 2 different reports than help to manage data. Today, we want to talk about 2 more reports.
The Zone Activity Report is helpful for checking the times and dates your GPS tracker devices entered and exited any zone or designated geofence that you have previously set up. You can select individual devices or all devices. Using this feature is a great way to make sure that your company vehicles aren’t being used for unauthorized activities. Moreover, it’s a fabulous safety feature.
Safety of employees, other drivers on the road, and the company vehicles are all just as important as making certain that workers get their jobs done. That’s where the Aggressive Driving Report comes into play. This GPS tracker report allows you to check on any aggressive driving your vehicles may be doing by reporting an increase or decrease in speed. It will allow you to see if a driver is accelerating normally to get on the interstate or is driving dangerously down a city street.
There you have it; some of the best reports to help you manage your data. With Standard Reports, Start/Stop Reports, Zone Activity Reports, and Aggressive Driving Reports there isn’t much you won’t be able to check up on. If you skip a day or a week of looking at reports you won’t have to worry, because you can see information saved for up to 90 days back. Are you ready to make your working days much easier?
