Depot Release: March 2015

Product Update March 2015

We are pleased to be able to share details with you of the March upgrade to EROAD's Depot web service. The upgrade took place at 10pm NZDT (Thursday 19 March 2015).

EROAD Share - Daily Activity can now be shared

Securely integrating shared vehicles into their own fleet is a big deal for leasing companies and fleet managers who work with subcontractors. To further improve effective sharing and monitoring of shared vehicle activity, you can now see shared vehicles in your Daily Activity Report for the time period they are shared with you.

This helps you to verify fulfilment of service agreements and charge out jobs correctly and applies to both vehicles currently shared with you now and vehicles that have been shared with you in the past.

To monitor compliance with RUC requirements, you can now view the current RUC status of shared vehicles in the bottom left corner of your Activity screen. Ensure your fleet is compliant even if you are not purchasing RUC for shared vehicles.

Please remember: You don’t have to share vehicle activity with your partner organisations; you can still choose to simply share current vehicle location only by selecting the current location Share option. To be sure you are comfortable with your current level of sharing, check your sharing connections in Outgoing Vehicle Sharing Details in Settings and Administration / Administration / My Organisation and edit if required.

EZfuel - Upload a single fuel transaction

Uploading a large number of fuel transactions from a CSV file is awesome but sometimes you just need to upload one transaction to complete your records. To do this, you don’t have to prepare a CSV file, simply clickAdd New Fuel Transaction in Reports / Fuel Transaction Management. Fill in the fuel transaction details and you are good to go.

EROAD Electronic Logbook - Timesheet Report

Are your drivers tired of manually filling in paper-based timesheets and calculating their daily work hours? Are your administrators wasting valuable time chasing time sheets and entering data into your payroll system? If this sounds familiar, we can help.

The new Timesheet Report in Depot automatically calculates and presents total work hours, distance travelled and other data captured in your drivers' Electronic Logbooks in real time. The report can be exported as a CSV file and imported into an external payroll system or similar application for further processing. This will help reduce manual, error-prone and time-consuming data entry tasks within your organisation.
