Global Fleet Reporting was developed to address the issue of “too much information and not enough time”. It is a problem familiar to many fleet and category managers. Working with a variety of leasing companies is further complicated by having to aggregate, process and analyze data from incompatible systems.
We remove the complexity through our Cloud-based Global Fleet Reporting system. The platform allows clients to create bespoke dashboards which simplifies procedures such as transitioning suppliers or managing diversified supply chains.
However, Global Fleet Reporting does more than just simplify the complex. It also supports the strategic direction of fleet by helping identify opportunities both locally and globally. Global Fleet Reporting supports the deconstruction of the supply chain to achieve maximum commercial advantage.
In addition to measurement of costs and savings the system can also integrate supplier performance measures to give you a holistic picture of the service delivery.

Global Support Services Business operating 17,000 vehicles in over 30 countries
Like many organizations with large fleets, the customer was having difficulty managing the fleet across a range of different suppliers in different geographical locations. Due to the range of suppliers the fleet data existed in different formats, languages and currencies. The customer required a single-point view of the full fleet with important data automatically aggregated and clearly presented.
By implementing Global Fleet Reporting, the customer was able to view their full global fleet by location, operating company and vehicle type including the total cost of ownership for each variant. The platform also allowed full visibility of critical data such as average C02 emissions, forecast renewal dates and invoiced spend split between fixed, variable and avoidable. Fleet budgets were added to the system to track fleet spend and verify the impact of efficiency initiatives.
The Importance of Data
Key enabler for managing strategy
Provides clarity and demonstrates cost control
Assists managing the risks associated with your fleet
Supports environmental aspirations of the business
Connect the data from internal systems and external systems in a variety of formats
Transform the data through cleansing, classify, categorise and enrich the data
Combine the data to create meaningful links within the dataset
Share analytics to allow discovery and insight
Our fleet reporting platform can take information in a variety of sources including excel, csv, text and xml.
Once we have received the data it goes through a process to check and cleanse the data to identify erroneous records and align data types. We then automatically enrich the data through applying classifications to assign records against data types. Next, the data is combined and linked to create associations between the data tables.
The final step of the process is to create a bespoke dashboard. The first stage is to use our extensive fleet knowledge to create dashboards which allow deep understanding of the fleet data set. We then tailor the look and feel to the specific requirements of our customers and as the data changes over time then the dashboard can change to meet the new circumstances.
All of the data is available through an online portal and can be downloaded to support individual reporting requirements.
