Reports constitute an essential part of managing a fleet. This because they simplify vehicle data and tell you exactly what is happening in your business. This then allows the fleet managers to gain knowledge that will help them increase their ROI. Geotab’s advanced fleet management platform has about 36 built-in reports. Each report comprises of two or three or four sub-reports, which sums up to over 80 reports.
You may have come across some of these reports and did not know what kind of data you can get from them. In this blog, we will explain the purpose of each report and where you can find them on MyGeotab.
Below is a table that lists all of the reports available on MyGeotab:
