Cost Savings Using Geowiz
Geowiz offers many cost savings opportunities to organizations including the ability to go paperless for field activities, a reduction in driver work load using geo-aware auto-tracking, paperless real-time retrieval of field documents including proof of delivery and signed customer documents, geo-based tracking of driver detention time, auto ELD mode-select including Yard Moves to ensure driver drive time is accurately tracked and driver hours are not incorrectly restricted, auto calculation of IFTA reporting, real-time safety monitoring and preemptive management of upcoming safety violations, law enforcement or accident or breakdown event recording and tracking, and simplified fleet management and asset defect resolution tracking including photo evidence and audio recorded statements.
Go paperless for field activities, when a customer document is signed or scanned in the field, it is available in the office within seconds. No need to wait for drivers to return with stacks of paper that office staff then have to sort and manually perform data entry on. Start invoice billing immediately and documents are never lost because they are stored and delivered electronically using the system. Adding a document to the system makes it available to field personnel within seconds.
Reduction in driver work load using geo-aware auto-tracking, much of the Geowiz functionality can be automated including tracking driving and on-duty time, arrival and departure for defined field locations, yard moves, and driver vehicle inspections or DVIRs. Getting the drivers focused on their jobs and not on tablet interactions and with their heads down in technology is a key Geowiz design principle.
Paperless real-time delivery and retrieval of field documents including proof of delivery and signed customer documents, Being paperless means that documents can move in real time between field devices and officer work stations. This reduces cycle time to seconds for completed paperwork and eliminates waist, mistakes, and missing documents common in a paper based environment.
Geo-aware auto-tracking, Geowiz has many built-in features that move the burden of data entry from the driver to automation within the GPS aware tablet and ELD device. If drivers go to recurring locations, those locations can be set to automatically drop into a driver daily route schedule upon arrival, and start, arrival, and departure times are automatically recorded with no driver intervention.
Paperless real-time retrieval of field documents including proof of delivery and signed customer documents, Geowiz allows a deployed fleet to go completely paperless. PDF documents can be uploaded by office staff as part of route planning or in real time, and drivers can access the files and present to customers as needed eliminating the need for in-cab paper. Customer documents can be scanned using the mobile device camera, and signed in real time, eliminating the need for multiple copies of documents provided at customer locations.
Geo-based tracking of driver detention time, driver time at a location is tracked and calculated by customer geographic location and customer orders. Generate detention billing reports supported by real data including location data so time can be proven.
Auto ELD mode-select including Yard Moves to ensure driver drive time is accurately tracked and driver hours are not incorrectly restricted, Geowiz can be notified of Yard locations so that drivers are automatically placed into Yard Mode to preserve driving hours during yard moves. This eliminates driver mistakes and reduced interaction time between the driver and the ELD device.
Auto calculation of IFTA reporting, asset locations are tracked and linked to odometer readings so that miles in state can be instantly retrieved from the system using date parameters to feed and simplify IFTA reports. If fuel logging is used, or a fuel card company provides fuel data via our EDI interface, full IFTA fuel tax calculations and MPG calculations are available.
Real-time safety monitoring and preemptive management of upcoming safety violations, safety officers can monitor drivers in real time including instant driving status and visibility into the driver ELD data as it is updated. Historical safety reporting, notes, and trends are available using current or historic data in the back office. Required break times are displayed to the driver and office staff to help drivers manage their schedules.
Law enforcement or accident or breakdown event recording and tracking, Geowiz can record an unlimited number of location based events including accidents, law enforcement stops, breakdowns, or any other items a company adds to the list. At any of these stops the GPS location is recorded as well as timing data. Further, drivers can take pictures, capture notes, and record audio associated with the event that is available historically and also in real time in the back office.
Simplified fleet management and asset defect resolution tracking including photo evidence and audio recorded statements, Asset inspections are saved and asset histories are available for an unlimited number of power units or trailers. Open inspection items are visible in a fleet maintenance queue and as items are resolved the resolution is captured and kept as part of the asset report. This is all done paperlessly.
