GPS Insight has completed two new reports for our customers who have vehicles going “back and forth” between two landmarks frequently, and where those “cycles” should be either above or below a “standard” drive and work time. This is a huge requirement for aggregate, trash, fuel, or other materials haulers who do the same thing day in and day out, and where hitting the standard turn and drive times is key to making a profit.
These reports are the “Cycle Time” Detail and Summary report.
This report runs a “Cycle Summary” for all our vehicles running between “RobHouse” (my house) and “GPS Insight Headquarters” (work):
Here is the output summarizing all of our trips from my house, to work, then back to my house:
This quickly displays a full month’s for all vehicles completing that pattern at least once during the month. Bear in mind that the data doesn’t make much sense since we don’t work driving back & forth between my house and work, but this will be more useful to companies which have this business model.
Running the Cycle Detail report for ONLY my 2 vehicles like this:
We get the following output (shrunk to fit, but you get the idea):
These reports still have some work to be done, but we wanted to get them out there for customers who require this functionality.
They are NOT going to help all customers in all situations, and while we are happy to listen to suggestions, these are two fairly specialized reports which may or may not see further development based on customer feedback/requests.
That said, we will most likely add functionality for an “upper limit” for drive and/or turn times before they are ignored (so that when I go to the airport for 4 days, then back to my home, that doesn’t count as a “cycle” for instance) and also, we will allow a “half cycle” to count toward the totals (where someone only completes half the cycle that day then completes the day without completing the cycle).
You will not see these reports show up in the Landmark menu by default, but if you want them turned on, please let us know and we will be happy to make them available.
Enjoy and Thanks,
