Conversations about fleet driver safety are changing.
Now, there’s more to fleet safety than simply monitoring driver behavior with the hope of preventing accidents. While that’s still a priority, it’s more complicated than that. It’s about seeing the big picture. Drawing the connection between driver safety and the overall business.
Can your telematics solution tell you which driving behaviors are draining your business’ bottom line?
Between idling, speeding, and hard braking, irresponsible driving habits cause fuel consumption to increase. Do you know how harsh braking is affecting your vehicles’ tires? Would better-driving habits save your vehicles from unnecessary vehicle maintenance?
Beyond that, can you connect drivers to their vehicles? Can you spot problems with routing that are causing drivers to speed or sit in traffic wasting fuel and increasing the likelihood of an accident? If not, you may not have the right telematics solution, or you aren’t using your current solution to its fullest extent.
Intelligent Fleet Safety Technology
With intuitive dashboards that collect data on vehicles, drivers, and back-office systems, the numbers can be combined to give you a better picture of your fleet’s operations. All of the aspects of your fleet that were once separated can now be connected by telematics. By visualizing the impact of behaviors, vehicle health, fuel spend, and other key components of fleet operations, you can make better data-driven decisions.
Rather than tracking fleet operations for a historical review, telematics enables a shift towards predictive analytics. It’s not about what happened in the past, but rather how data collected in the past predicts the future. By collecting data on driver behavior and accidents, fleet managers can pinpoint exactly which behaviors cause accidents and correct them before they impact your business’ bottom line.
