OKLAHOMA CITY (Aug. 1, 2016) — With GPS tracker reports fleet company owners are able to have access to valuable information that can help reduce costly risks. This includes being able to keep tabs on drivers that are being aggressive, being able to crack down on idling, and cutting out inefficient work days. Additionally, using the report options fleet companies can keep track of mileage and other past recorded data. As starting out with all these options can be overwhelming for new users, US Fleet Tracking is providing tips to gaining a better understanding of GPS tracker reports.
Report Tip # 1- Monitor Speeding
The default setting is at 65 MPH, but this GPS tracker alert allows management to set the maximum speed to whatever they desire and monitor which vehicles go beyond that threshold. The report will record all the times throughout the day that a vehicle exceeded that set speed. In addition to the date, time and speed management will also have a documented location where the speeding occurred.
Report Tip # 2: Monitor Aggressive Driving
Speeding while driving is one thing, but going from 35 miles per hour to 95 miles per hour in a 10 second time span is even more cause for concern. Slamming on brakes to come to a rapid halt would also be categorized as aggressive driving. With this GPS tracker report management can see if a driver is accelerating too quickly, driving dangerously between lanes, or stopping too abruptly.
Report # 3: Monitor Idling
When a company vehicle idles for too long it creates opportunity for wasting fuel and tearing up the engine. In the long run this horrible habit could wreak havoc on the budget. With the GPS tracker idling report management will be able to see all the idling going on and use the information to reduce the action.
Report Tip # 4: Monitor Zone Activity
If management wants to know when or where a vehicle was when it left a designated area that’s not a problem with geofences. This is a fantastic feature for GPS tracker devices and with the zone activity report management can view past incidences. Furthermore, they will be able to see a list of all their devices and all of their zones for a complete understanding.
Report Tip # 5: Monitor Mileage
Knowing distance traveled is important for many business calculations and possibly even tax records. With GPS tracker mileage reports management will be able to how far vehicles drove in a single day as well as the average speed driven for the day. Knowing this information may be able to help to see where the business can cut down on unnecessary driving and save some money.
Report Tip # 6: Monitor Vapor Trail
When opening the GPS tracker report there are options to view activity in it for up to 90 days. This is a complete graphic report that starts out by showing a pink line on a map and within that line is data to show everywhere a device has traveled within whatever time frame selected.
With GPS trackers fleet managers from all around have improved monitoring and safety for their employees. Not only that, but they’ve been able to save money and keep their vehicles running longer. With a better understanding of the reports, perhaps management will now be able to achieve even more, monitor employee accountability, and protect vehicles from theft.
