    Detailed Views for Missed Savings 

    Main View

    The Missed Savings tab in the Cards section on the Fleet Dashboard organizes missed savings by cardholders or merchants. It contains two tabs, Cardholders and Merchants. Fleet Managers can open the detailed view for any cardholder or merchant to review recommendations or take necessary action.

     

    Cardholder View

    In this view, Fleet Managers can review any specific cardholder's information for the selected dates. This includes missed savings, visited merchants, transactions done at these merchants, available alternatives for savings, and directions to alternative merchants on the map.

     

     

    Merchant View (Coming soon)

    In this view, Fleet Managers can access any specific merchant’s details, including spending and missed savings, cardholders who visited these merchants and when they visited, transactions made, etc. This helps them decide whether to block certain merchants or coach Drivers to use alternatives for better savings.

    Note: The Merchant View is in the development phase and scheduled for launch soon.

     

     

    Transaction View

    Selecting any transaction in the Cardholder or Merchant view takes the user to the Transaction view. In this view, Fleet Managers can review comprehensive transaction details, including missed savings data and available alternatives for each transaction.
