Time Alignment

The Time Alignment Report shows activity mismatches between a Driver's activity as recorded on the Driver Logbook Application and the associated Vehicle's activity as reported by the Ehubo.

It's for NZ EROAD customers of both the Ehubo fleet telematics product and the NZ Day Logbook Product.

To use the Time Alignment report:

  • MyEROAD > Drivers > Logbook > Time Alignment tab.

Organisations are wanting insights into two situations:

1) To know when a Driver has used Logbook to log they're driving BUT the associated vehicle is shown as not moving.

  • Indicative of time theft.
  • Key factor/gate for payroll approval. 

2) To know when a vehicle is moving BUT the associated driver is shown as at Rest or Off Duty or On Duty (i.e. not Driving).

  • Indicative of NZTA compliance breach (fatigue).
  • To mitigate audit risk by NZTA 
  • Insights for managers to aid training of Drivers new to Logbook

How does it work?

Using the filters a customer can view time alignment mismatches between the Orgs Drivers and the Vehicle as an aid in investigating Time Theft and Compliance issues. 

The Data can also be exported for further data manipulation.

The Report also highlights the most common type of time mismatches and ranks drivers by number of mismatches.



I've noticed some anomalies in the data that is being presented?

The Time Alignment report uses the Vehicle registration and Driver association that is created when a Driver enters the rego in the Driver's logbook. As vehicle rego's aren't required to be entered by the driver in the Logbook for non-driving Logbook statuses such as “on Duty” and “rest” the App holds on to the last known rego, this can cause some false positives in the data if the vehicles are used by someone else who hasn’t logged the rego against their name.

These will be easy to recognise once you are used to investigating through the report, you will find these mainly come up when you have split shifts, or your trucks are often moved around the yard by other staff.

For example if the last logbook status was an “on Duty” status as the driver arrived back to do some work in the yard, then that vehicle gets moved by another staff member ( to get washed in another part of the yard lets say) then the logbook will think that the vehicle has moved during a time where it shouldn’t have and will show a “ Vehicle moving – On duty” exception.
