Thanks to Our GPS trackers, you can automate the entire process by using an accurate and reliable GPS electronic logbook.
To stay viable and profitable, keeping any fleet in a good condition is one of the top priorities for most of the businesses.
Manual reports handling and human errors, paperwork overload, lack of drivers’ accountability, communication and coordination issues, no clear differentiation between business and personal vehicle use, random or chaotic routing and idling will inevitably increase the fleet operational cost, and impact on company cash flow, competitive advantage, reputation.
These challenges can’t be ignored and should be addressed by the fleet management and company owners. And that is where GPS electronic logbook comes into the play.
It is a good practice for the fleet Managers to keep data and log of each of their vehicles. This is to ensure fleet manager can keep tracking the operational cost of any particular car and/or the entire fleet. This will give fleet owners the opportunity to evaluate their vehicles expenses and take mitigation measure to counter excessive maintenance cost. This is how our electronic logbook with GPS tracking comes very handy here.
Overall, a logbook is useful shipping, delivery services,sea logbook for seafarers and so on. Siliconfusion GPS tracking solution provides and electronic logbook accurately registers all the routes covered by a vehicle and the purpose for the journey.
A logbook shows the location and the date of departure, a driver’s ID, mileage at the beginning and end of the journey (distance travelled in total), green driving parameters and the purpose of the trip. If requested, the data can be used for submission to the tax office, insurance companies and similar.
Our Devices are able to read standard OBD data which contains also mileage. However, if this data is not available from particular vehicle, trip odometer feature is a solution. It’s a function, which operates GNSS data. Therefore, it’s not like getting the readings from the dashboard directly, but it’s a pretty accurate calculation which is based on the distance travelled. The best of all this function allows you to read the mileage of the actual vehicle without leaving the office.
One of the most distinctive logbook benefits is the trip designation feature. In the device FMB001, this feature has been fulfilled with a Trip Mode.
A Trip section in settings offers a user to configure the Trip Mode feature. The Trip starts when Ignition according to Ignition Source is ON and Movement according to Movement Source is ON and Start Speed is exceeded. Start Speed defines the minimum vehicle speed to detect Trip. When the Trip is over and the next Trip begins, trip odometer value is reset to zero.
Using the trip designation, there are two options for a driver to choose from – Business Mode or Private Mode.
When the Business Mode is activated, an electronic logbook keeps tracking and recording all appropriated vehicle events automatically. If the Private Mode is chosen by the driver, the logbook will be turned off and no events will be registered. Also, this mode allows companies to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulations.
This feature is especially handy if a company fleet vehicle is being used and for business, and for leisure purposes (e.g. on weekends, vacations or after business hours) or for the accurate car taxation report in some countries. As well, self-employed people can easily convert own car into a business asset.
For instance, Our OBDII Plug-and-Play devices are perfectly suitable for the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) tracking applications as a courier delivery service, car rental and leasing, insurance telematics and many other scenarios where the simple, swift and low-cost installation is a priority.
