What’s Offered?

Fleetmatics REVEAL

Fleetmatics REVEAL is a GPS tracking software that can be accessed via desktop, tablet or smartphone. This software system gives businesses a real-time location of their vehicles, as well as preventative maintenance information to identify potential risks and the historical status of each vehicle. This includes everything from speed and idling status, to start up and shut down.

The dashboard allows users to create benchmarks on key metrics. They can then track their performance and compare performance between groups. Businesses will be able to easily identify their biggest opportunities to improve.

Other features of Fleetmatics REVEAL include driver tracking and driver ID, fuel card reporting, route replay, proactive fleet alerts and integration with Garmin devices. Companies that currently use Garmin devices for navigation can sync them with the Fleetmatics software to further enhance efficiency benefits.

Driver ID and driver tracking ensures you can keep a track on which driver is in a vehicle, whilst fuel card reporting gives you full control over fuel spending. You can consequently pinpoint fleet fuel card abuse and verify fuel card reporting data, which in turn ensures you control fuel wasting and reduce fuel usage and consequently costs.

Route replay is Fleetmatics REVEAL’s route tracking feature, which allows you determine who is working productively by identifying engine idling events, long stops and seeing who starts late or finishes early. Finally, another key feature is the proactive fleet alerts, which give real-time notifications of unwanted vehicle behaviour, allowing you to improve safety and take instant action. Alerts include idling alerts, speeding alerts, vehicle activity alerts and geofence alerts.
