The Importance of Data for Fleet Managers

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

When it comes to fleet management, what you don’t know can hurt you. Data about your fleet takes many forms and helps you stay on top of many aspects of your operation—including scheduling, performance, pricing, and fuel usage. Without this information, communication breakdowns and operability issues quickly surface. Clear, organized data reduces what you don’t know, empowering fleet managers to constantly improve their business through monitoring purchases, timetables, and even shipping routes. 

As technology advances, more and more data about your fleets, fuel, and operation promise to flood your business. By deploying smart practices and understanding what your data says, you can stay ahead of this influx of information and use it to your advantage. Guttman Energy knows how to increase what you know, and decrease what you don’t. How? By gathering and deciphering fuel data with organized and easily understood reporting and monitoring practices. 

With a combination of state-of-the-art reporting systems and highly-skilled fleet fuel representatives, Guttman Energy ensures our customers make the most of their data. Guttman Energy’s fleet reporting technology seamlessly integrates into most transportation management software and electronic logging devices on trucks, tracking fleet activity like fuel use, spend, and driving patterns. Along with this information, transparency and reporting with our fleet fuel card customers remains a major feature.

Our card reports real-time data to keep you in the know about everything from transaction amount, fuel gallons purchased, and fuel grade. We also provide customized IFTA reporting and payroll reports for mixed fleets. However, it takes highly-skilled fueling intelligence to ensure that all this data translates into actionable solutions. For instance, even if an operation has access to its data, accurately deciphering that information could be impossible. Our Guttman Fleet Fuel reps take any reporting information generated, analyze it, and relay important messages back to our customers, even proposing solutions on how to handle issues if necessary. 

At Guttman Energy, we know data plays a massive role in the fueling intelligence we bring our customers every day. Whether you need help getting reporting in place or just making sense of data, a Guttman Energy representative can help you take better, more reliable control of your fleet. After all, in this industry, knowledge is power.
