Fleets looking to identify underutilized assets can now access Navman Wireless North America’s OnlineAVL2 vehicle tracking and logistics system.
The program’s new Out of Service report can pinpoint vehicles which, based on travel distance and ignition time thresholds set by a manager, have available productivity, Navman said. The report displays average daily distances, average daily ignition time, average daily number of trips, total distances and total ignition time for all vehicles that fail to meet the designated thresholds.
The update is the second enhancement to OnlineAVL2 in recent months. Previously, an executive summary report that consolidates performance indicators for multiple vehicle groups or an entire fleet on a single screen was added.
“Identifying underutilized vehicles in a larger fleet has always been a challenge. If a vehicle is lagging behind on road time, you can’t detect that in a fleet-wide performance report,” said vp Renaat Ver Eecke. “Our new Out of Service report analyzes performance at the vehicle level and steers managers directly to the trucks or vans that aren’t keeping up with the rest of the fleet. This is a vital first step to optimizing operations for individual vehicles.”
The Out of Service report is included with new purchases at no charge and existing customers will receive a free upgrade, either on request by during the next scheduled automatic software update, Navman said.
