Since Maxoptra has built the plan for the vehicles, it knows where a vehicle should be at any point in time during the day and the GPS tracker can provide the position where the vehicle actually is. By comparing the two, Maxoptra can draw meaningful conclusions about how well the vehicle is following the plan.
Maxoptra can integrate with a variety of different tracking platforms. If your vehicles have GPS trackers on them but the tracking is not yet connected to Maxoptra, please contact our support team to find out if your solution is supported. Also note that when using the Maxoptra Android driver application or another supported mobility solution even more useful information can be fed back and analyzed.
To see the planned versus actual analysis, please make sure the selected role is Dispatcher and you are on the Track & trace screen:
Select the date you would like to review:
You can also select a Depot or a list of specific vehicles you want to look at. Click "Apply":
You will see a list of routes planned for the selected day:
Each route will have some basic information about it in its title and the list of planned locations in order. Each location can be related to one or more orders.
Clicking on the Order reference in the Orders column will show the order information:
Since Maxoptra knows the locations of the orders it can monitor when a vehicle actually arrives at that location and departs from it. The actual arrival and departure times are shown in the Arrival and Departure columns:
The numbers in brackets show the deviation from the planned time:
Notice that these columns are color-coded. Dark-green times indicate on-time arrival, light-green shows early arrival, yellow means late and red is used for the locations not visited at all:
What late or early means depends on the setting titled "Compare actual time to" at the top of the screen. By default, the scheduled time mode is selected and "late" means 30 minutes or more later than the scheduled time:
If you switch the mode to "Operation time windows", any arrival time within the order time window is classified as on-time. The actual job duration, mileage and driving time are also calculated and displayed in these columns. The actual sequence of stops as the driver visited them is also tracked and displayed in the first column:
The summary at the bottom of the route highlights the total actual job duration, mileage and driving time:
If you want to dig deeper into what happened on that route you can always click on the "Map" icon next to the route title:
This will bring up the map view of the route:
The blue line is the planned route of the vehicle, the red line is the actual route:
You can put your mouse over any point of the actual route to find out when it was registered:
The order locations are displayed with a red circle around them indicating the geofence used to register the arrival at that location:
If you notice that the location is misplaced you can simply right-click that location, select to change it and then you can drag the location and change the radius of its geofence:
When you click "Save" Maxoptra remembers your modification and will use it the next time you deliver to this location.
