Accessible Past Vehicle Activity And Data

With history playback, you can replay a vehicle’s most recent history as it happened in real time. Search vehicles by name, time and date of the event. Historical vehicle data can be used to modify driver coaching. 
Customized Locations

Improving Fuel Efficiency with Alerts and Exceptions
Prevent unnecessary costs and know when a vehicle idles for long periods with customizable real-time alerts and exceptions sent directly to your mobile-device and desktop. Notifications are sent when vehicles are idling excessively, driving over the posted speed limit, turning corners too fast and more. 
Analytics and Reporting
Get insight into your fleet’s engine performance by viewing easy-to-read vehicle data. Safety analytics measures driving behavior by metric, including harsh acceleration. Travel trend reports help you note possible wear and tear and where drivers can improve to avoid unnecessary costs.  Performance reports are easily accessible and customizable to show what matters most—whether its miles traveled, speeding, idle time or daily fuel usage.
