Vehicle Fleet Dashboard – Screenshots of motor pool management dashboards

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 4:39 am

Tracking the statuses and comings and goings of vehicles in any decent-sized fleet can be demanding. Dashboarding, with its at-a-glance nature and drill-down capability, is a great approach to this challenge. Here we take a look at a vehicle fleet dashboard from the Agile FleetCommander product. The dashboard lists the leaving and returning reservations by name and time on the right side. On the left, we have the summary level numbers for vehicle activity, administration tasks and fleet management links. The next enterprise dashboard screenshot shows the vehicle optimization chart drilldown. As far as I can make out, D stands for Departure and C stands for Coming In?

Homework: The best way to make sure that your dashboard is a success is to really pay attention to the design phase of the project. Well worth studying is this lavishly illustrated book, Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data.

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com. Also check out The Dashboard Spy’s books on enterprise dashboards. His current favorite is Enterprise Dashboards: Design and Best Practices for IT, the only book on actually implementing executive dashboards.

  1. I very much enjoyed reading through your blog. It’s informative and the
    design is user-friendly. I’m new to the blogging process and have some
    questions you may be able to answer for me. Do you have an email address
    that I could use in correspondence with you or the person responsible
    for posting the blogs or managing the site?

  2. Hi. I see you have our Dashboard and our Manage Fleet screen. Our Dashboard has gone through some major changes. Would you like a screenshot of the newest one? I could also give you a better shot of our Manage Fleet screen with the legend so you’ll know what each icon means.
