Understand the difference between dashboards and email reports

Providing you with dashboards and email reports is good. It’s even better if you can understand their usefulness and use them to drive your fleet forward. That’s why today we’re going to focus on these two categories of reports, which are the ones used at Fleeti to provide you with information about your fleet. 

Dashboards allow you to know more about your fleet at a glance. They are useful on a daily basis

Dashboards 

First point: what is a dashboard? 

A dashboard report is any report that graphically represents one of the fleet’s parameters or KPIs. 

This format allows you to have a quick overview of the state of your fleet. For example, you can follow the curve of your fuel consumption across the day/week.

One of the most used dashboards is for that matter, the fuel tracking dashboard. You can track the amount of fuel in the tank of a vehicle in real time. This allows you to detect theft for example. Indeed, in the territories where we operate, fuel theft is a major problem. You can have a look at the article we wrote about it.

Before the advent of fleet management and fuel tracking software, these thefts were only detected late (when detected). Now, by regularly consulting your dashboards you are able to notice a sudden and unusual drop in fuel. To complete this, alert systems also exist to notify you when an unusual drop in fuel occurs in one of your vehicles.

These dashboards are fully customizable. You can define the information that is important to you, and it will be displayed in the form of dashboards on your homepage. 

This way of reporting allows you to know more about your fleet at a glance. For this reason, it can be interesting to consult them at least once a day. For some sectors (last mile delivery for example), the dashboards can be consulted several times a day to follow the progress of the deliveries and compare it to the planned schedule for example.

We update the information in real time, so that the information you consult is always representative of reality.

Email reports allow you to take a step back and make long term decisions for your fleet

Email reports 

The reports sent by email are more complete than the dashboards: they contain data that is important for the company, studied over a given period of time, and which allow for more in-depth analysis of the state of the fleet and therefore potentially for measures to be taken. They allow a synthesis of all the data collected. These reports are sent periodically (often weekly) to the people concerned in the companies 

One of the main advantages of these reports is that they are sent automatically: the fleet manager does not need to build them himself, nor does he needs to go and get them from our platform. He receives them at each defined period of time, directly in his mailbox.

At Fleeti, one of the most requested reports is the “Risk Management Report”, or RMR. The risk management report allows you to quickly obtain a global and synthetic view of the fleet over a given period.

Where dashboards allow you to know more about what is going on in real time within your fleet, email reports are made for you to take a step back and analyze what could be improved. They help you make long term decisions.

These reports, each in their own way, allow you to improve your fleet. Whether it’s about one-off interventions (dashboard) or decisions for longer-term changes (report), they help you to better understand your fleet, and therefore better optimize it. Fleeti’s reports focus on expertise and clarity of information. We believe that anyone should be able to understand our reports. That’s why we present your KPIs in a clear and concrete way, so you can easily make impactful decisions.
