A vital tool for any fleet manager is being able to better understand the driver behaviour of their employees. We have developed a number of techniques to support the monitoring of driving habits. By identifying areas for improvement this will help to promote operational and environmental efficiency across your business.
Simplytrak is all about driving green and reducing your company’s carbon footprint. But economical driving is not just about the environment, it also makes great business sense too. Many fleets now use the Simplytrak drivers scorecard and reward the leaders with incentives to driving calmer. As a byproduct this leads to safer driving, lower accident and incident numbers and reduced maintenance costs – a win all round.
This tools allow for any unhealthy driving habits to be identified that could put the drivers and company at increased risk. Downtime caused by accidents often causes much greater cost for the company than the actual accident itself.
With the Simplytrak system fleet managers can also identify if a vehicle is left idling in real-time, this may be due to the driver making a delivery or waiting to start a job. Using the detailed driver behaviour reports this data can be used to to educate the team on ways to improve their driving performance – benefiting both the business and the driver.
