Xata Corp. announced the addition of customer-defined reporting capabilities to its core product, Xatanet. The company says its new Self-Service Reporting tool allows customers to more effectively use their data within Xatanet to create additional reports tailored to their fleet operations needs.

“Flexibility is the key benefit of the improved reporting tool,” says Tom Flies, senior vice president of product management for Minneapolis-based Xata Corp. “With fleet operations constantly evolving and an ever-increasing demand for detailed visibility into fleet performance, it is important that our customers have the ability to create on-the-fly reports that help with the daily management of their fleets.”

Xatanet Self-Service Reporting also allows customers to perform mathematical functions on their existing fleet data to evaluate fleet performance or other management criteria, the company says; features available within Self-Service Reporting include specifying parameters or filters for accessing the data, as well as the ability to display and save reports as Adobe Reader PDFs, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets or other standard formats.

According to the company, examples of reports customers could create using the Xatanet Self-Service Reporting tool include:

  • Driver and vehicle reports, such as speeding and idle time that are unique to customer operations;
  • Driver fuel analysis reports, such as MPG usage by region and vehicle; and
  • User-definable delivery and route reports, and such custom performance reports as fuel analysis, MPG and speeding.
  • Available in November, the enhanced reporting capability is part of the Xatanet 4.3 release.
