NASHVILLE. An entirely new reporting platform and graphical dashboard for PeopleNet’s fleet management system allows users to quickly identify best and worst performing drivers or vehicles based on collected vehicle data and real-time metrics. Introduced at the National Private Truck Council annual conference, the Logistics Intelligence platform is the only fleet management reporting software that allows expanded comparative reporting periods to help fleets analyze trends and uncover developing problems, according to the company.
The reporting platform, based on SAP’s Business Objects, drives a new PerformX Dashboard that lets users create performance targets for both drivers and vehicles and easily measure actual activity against those goals. The graphical dashboard offers a number of reporting options for log and GPS data, messaging activity and engine diagnostics that can be created and modified on the fly by fleet manager to compare individual drivers or vehicles, terminals, regions or the entire fleet. Users can also opt to receive those performance reports on a scheduled basis as well as on demand.
Also announced at the NPTC conference were two new PeopleNet partnerships with Iteris and Summary Systems.
Driver and vehicle performance data collected by the PeopleNet onboard computer will now be integrated with data captured by Iteris’ AutoVue lane departure warning system and analyzed by its Safety Direct web-based application.
The Summary Systems agreement combines that company’s Point of Delivery Mobile Suite for handheld devices with PeopleNet’s onboard computer and wireless communications system. The integration allows Summary users to deploy less expansive handheld devices without wireless modems, as well as offers PeopleNet users the ability to automate delivery routes and eliminated paperwork on those routes.
