Payment and operating technology company Comdata says its new business intelligence product helps local and trucking fleet managers get more strategic and actionable analytics from their Comdata fuel cards.
Comdata, a FLEETCOR company, said the new product is called Comdata OneLook, and through key performance indicators, visualizations, and dashboards, it uses online analytics to measure fleet performance.
With the product, fleet managers can view and manage every critical aspect of fleet performance, “every mile of the day,” Comdata North American Trucking Division senior vice president of product and innovation Justin King said in a news release. He described Comdata OneLook as “a modern and intuitive analytics tool.”
The company says the product offers additional visibility into overall fleet and fueling behavior. It also provides individual driver decision patterns. With those two services, managers can now make necessary changes to improve performance by seeing how and where company funds are being used, according to the company.
Various fleet types use Comdata fuel cards, and the Comdata says Comdata OneLook defines key metrics to help managers of local fleets (class 2 to 7) and trucking fleets (class 8 to 13) to manage their performance. For mixed fleets, Comdata says Comdata OneLook provides a one-stop view for overall fleet operations. With what the company describes as easy-to-navigate filters, mixed fleets can drill into one side of their operation when needed.
Also with the new product, fleet owners and managers can view their fleet’s performance to make changes that the company says will help reduce costs, maximize discounts, and boost their top and bottom lines.
The company adds that fleet owners and managers will no longer have to wait for monthly reports to receive data. With Comdata OneLook, near real-time dashboards focus on areas such as fleet KPIs, driver behavior, fuel types, and average price per gallon.
Before its debut, Comdata OneLook was developed with a group of local and trucking fleet and fuel managers involved in its design and beta testing. Feedback from those Comdata customers, representing more than 100,000 vehicles and drivers, helped design the OneLook product.
For any trucking or local fuel card customer that is interested in subscribing to the tool. Comdata OneLook is available immediately.
“Comdata OneLook has really honed in on what my team needs,” said Bill Davis, category manager, procurement for PowerTeam Services Inc., which was a beta customer.
Davis added, “We now have access to fleet analytics right out of the box, saving us the time and effort needed to pull reports manually. It used to take us half a day to do what we can now do in just a few simple clicks.”
