On top of the standard features of the Simplytrak system i.e. incident reports such as harsh acceleration, braking and speeding, etc. the added benefit of the camera now provides fleet managers with the context behind each event – removing the need to discuss each event with the driver (often a time-consuming process).
Video evidence provides accurate context. What might appear to be unnecessarily sharp braking may have been in response to a child stepping out into the road. It’s also useful in the case of an accident. There is hard evidence to show what happened.
The system uses witness cameras, installed in the vehicle and sees what the driver is seeing. Footage is then stored for the 10 seconds before and 10 seconds after each event and uploaded to the cloud storage, accessible via the Simplytrak portal.
