Finding the Right Fleet Data

When organizations are looking to track more aspects of their fleet in greater detail, it will result in the accumulation of large amounts of data. That’s why it’s important to find a fleet management software system that will help users breakdown that data and help them find a “needle in a haystack”.

Collective Data software provides an excellent tool called the filter control that makes data manipulation easier throughout the entire system.

The Collective Data filter control

Look at it as a pitchfork that removes the big pile of hay. It leaves a much smaller pile of hay so the “needle” can be found, whether it’s a group of data or a specific record.

Here are a few examples:

  • Only display equipment records by a specific location/department.
  • Filter equipment by specific years.
  • Create an “old vehicle” filter that displays vehicles with a meter of greater than 100,000 miles OR an age greater than 20.
  • Filter all work orders by a specific part that was used.


The filter control provides a huge number of options for finding large, small, or single points of data. The good thing about it is, you can create and save multiple filters that will be used more than once. With the click of one advanced filter a user could easily breakdown a list of 10,000 parts to only the parts used on a work order in the last week.

In the end, Fleet Management Software is only successful when you are making use of the data. And if you can’t find it, what’s the point? Collective Data’s software helps you keep track of every nitty-gritty detail of the fleet operation you want, while also allowing you to easily group or find the right data when you need it.  The unique combination supports the decision making process and ultimately has a major positive impact on your fleet.
