The Importance of Big Data and Reporting for Fleet Operations

Gathering large volumes of telematics data is only useful if it’s utilised to make decisions that will help improve your fleet’s operations.
The importance of Big Data and reporting for fleet operations

Big data in telematics is a powerful thing. Telematics technology can help fleet managers save money, improve efficiency and make better decisions. But in order to take advantage of all that big data in telematics has to offer, managers need to have the ability to review these massive data sets and distill them into actionable insights. That's where reporting comes in.

Reporting is the process of taking telematics data and turning it into information that can be used to make decisions. In the case of fleet management, this might mean creating reports that show things like fuel consumption, idling times, or maintenance records. Telematics systems can help fleet owners by using analytics to identify trends and problems, like determining which routes are the most efficient or updates on the driver's behavior.

There are a number of different ways to create reports, but they all share one common goal: to make the data easier to understand and use. This can be done in a number of ways, but some of the most common methods include using graphs, charts, and tables.

Reporting is an essential part of fleet management and is especially important for those that rely on big data. That's because big data sets can be very difficult to understand and use without the right tools. With reporting, managers can quickly and easily see what's going on with their fleets and make the necessary changes.

Making Our Roads Safer With Big Data

Big data can help make our roads safer by providing real-time information on traffic conditions, accidents, and road closures — and with enough historical data, it may even be able to predict traffic patterns.

This information can be used to improve traffic flow, plan alternative routes, and even make decisions about infrastructure development. For example, if an area is consistently seeing a high number of accidents, that data can be used to support the installation of speed bumps or traffic-calming measures.

Supporting Emergency Responders

Telematics systems can help emergency responders get to the scene of an accident faster and as mentioned before, may even help first responders identify certain locations, times, or traffic patterns that they may want to pay extra attention to or stay nearby during certain times. In addition, big data telematics can help identify trends in crashes. Telematics uses this information in developing strategies to prevent future accidents, as well as to develop a dispatch strategy that helps first responders stay closer to problem areas.

Training Safer Drivers

The use of big data in telematics can also help train safe drivers. By analyzing data from accidents, telematics can be used to identify dangerous driving behaviors. This information can be used to educate drivers on how to avoid accidents. In addition, by monitoring the driving habits of individual drivers, using telematics can provide feedback that can help improve their driving.

When paired with artificial intelligence (AI), big data telematics can help make even safer drivers by providing real-time coaching, identifying potential hazards, and automatically correcting dangerous driving behaviors.

Big Data Is a Big Deal in Fleet Operations

In short, big data in fleet telematics systems has the potential to make our roads safer by providing real-time information on traffic conditions, accidents, and road closures. We've found that managers report upwards of a 60% reduction in collisions and a 25% reduction in insurance costs when they implement a combination of AI dash cams and vehicle telematics in their fleets. Even by simply implementing a GPS tracking system, fleets report a 20% reduction in collisions.

Some additional services that big data brings to telematics include automated routing optimization and driving behavior analysis. Routing optimization can help drivers get to their destinations more quickly and efficiently while driving behavior analysis can help identify unsafe driving behaviors and improve driver safety. Both of these deep insights can help make our roads safer for everyone.

When it comes to safety, big data can be a powerful tool. In the hands of trained professionals, big data can help reduce motor vehicle crashes, train safe drivers, and improve road safety overall. Telematics is just one way that big data is making a difference in the world – and it's a difference that we can all benefit from.
