Telematics, Changing the Way We Drive
A very tragic accident on the M6 this week. It serves as another reminder that driving at work, whether that be sales people in cars, engineers in vans or delivery drivers in HGV's, has some very serious risks and implications for the employer.
Companies that do nothing with telematics data are at the highest risk. If the data reveals your employee is driving dangerously, but no action is taken, you can be held partially liable if the driver is then involved in an accident. The data will help prevent accidents and ensure your company is acting responsibly through monitoring driver performance and engaging with your workforce.
A well-executed management of telematics data not only produces fantastic results in reducing risk and accidents, but also significantly reduces fuel costs and identifies links between driver behaviour and excessive vehicle wear and tear, leading to lower total cost of ownership.
A common challenge I hear from businesses using telematics, is the issue of finding time to actively review the data and footage produced by the solution. As a result, it often gets overlooked and the opportunity to identify high risk behaviour is missed.
To address this challenge Telematics Pro has developed a Telematics Data Review service called Roadwise. Our analysts are Ex Traffic Police with over 17 years’ experience. All data is reviewed against a legislative framework and weekly reports are provided to our clients, which are easy to understand and enable them to engage with the relevant drivers concisely and with confidence.
We can even work with your existing telematics solution, meaning there’s no need to install new hardware and software to benefit from RoadWise.
We make time for your business.
