Does the Tenna App need to be open to pick up BLE Beacon locations?
Tenna leverages background Bluetooth ranging which allows mobile devices equipped with the Tenna App to locate Tenna BLE Beacons in the background, even when the app is not open. Beacon location is captured every few minutes and seamlessly updated on the Tenna platform.
What is the benefit of Bluetooth Background Processing?
The benefits of having background Bluetooth ranging include:
- Regular, autonomous updates to the location of your assets tracked with Tenna BLE Beacons without having to manually scan them.
- Ability to leverage any device that has the Tenna App to locate and update your assets.
- Optimized battery consumption allowing for hours of Tenna App usage without significant power drain on your mobile device.
What information is available?
You can view asset utilization at the individual asset level, across your equipment fleet company wide and across your active sites.
For individual asset level detail, you can see how many hours and corresponding percentages the asset has been used over daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, year-to-date and life-to-date durations.
How often is it updated?
By default, the information is for the past 24-hour period.
How is utilization information captured?
Utilization is captured using data from one of two of our tracking devices—the Tenna Fleet Tracker and TennaGO Plug-in.
What kind of reports can I run?
You can export data and run a variety of reports on your assets, sites, users and trackers. Some examples include Trips history, Asset Utilization, Project Utilization, Hours and Miles accumulation, Financial information, Fuel usage and more.
Can I create my own reports?
You can specify custom time periods and export specific data points and filters for custom reporting. Anything included in Tenna’s data tables can be tailored when reporting out.
Can I invite users?
Yes. You can invite an unlimited number of users into your Tenna Account. You can also manage permissions and tailor access based on your team’s needs.
Can I re-invite a user?
Yes. You can simply resend the invitation email from the User tab on your Settings menu. If you deleted the user by mistake, please contact us and we will re-enable them right away.
Is there a limit on users?
No. You decide who you want using the system and how many people.

Do you provide implementation services?
Yes. We work with your team hands-on to ensure that you get the most out of our solution. We create a customized implementation plan so that you know what to expect.

How long will it take?
That depends. Our solution is customized to your needs and so is our implementation process. So, to be safe, plan on at least two months before you are rocking and rolling.
Safety & Compliance
What is IFTA?
IFTA is a government regulation that drivers and fleet managers in 48 of the United States and 10 Canadian provinces must comply with when operating their trucks and vehicles in multiple jurisdictions outside of their base state for federal tax reporting. IFTA is calculated based on miles and fuel costs in different states or provinces that drivers of IFTA-“qualified motor vehicles” have entered.
Tenna helps you to leverage your telematics data to aid in tracking your IFTA miles for IFTA compliance.
