Driver Performance Monitoring

Advanced Driver Analytics to improve Fleet Compliance, Safety and Performance

Fleets rely on drivers every step of the way. As well as final completion of delivery, driver performance impacts fuel economy, fleet safety, vehicle utilization, compliance scores, customer satisfaction and ultimately the success of the business. Managing a fleet successfully depends deeply on driver performance and scoring.

Driver behavior monitoring identifies driving styles that can reduce fuel costs by up to 20%, and can prevent an accident before it occurs. No other system matches our advanced driver analytics and coaching tools, which deliver immediate fuel savings, improved compliance and safety scores, and reduced maintenance costs.

Driver-Friendly Coaching Improves Performance

  • Live onboard driver scoring, feedback, and coaching improves driving behavior right in the cab.
  • Color-based scoring makes the driver aware of areas where improvement is necessary without distracting them.
  • All advice presented to the driver is customizable by the fleet’s own driver trainer.

Manage All Aspects of Driver Performance with 360° Scoring

  • The only fleet telematics solution to offer driver scoring across three categories: performance, compliance, and safety. This avoids the problem of rewarding a driver for driving performance, only to find out later they have a poor record in compliance or safety.

Collect Robust and Extensive Data

  • Compare drivers extensively across 26 categories including excessive idling, harsh braking, over-speeding, time spent in top gear, harsh acceleration and deceleration, not using cruise control, over-revving and more.
  • Calculate fuel savings by comparing drivers over each category.
  • Set targets for drivers by highlighting their driving patterns in need of improvement.

Compare Drivers Fairly Across All Trucks Using Vehicle Profiler

  • The Vehicle Profiler characterizes each truck on how they should be driven according to manufacturers' specifications. The system then overlays a driver's driving pattern to highlight where improvements can be made.

Win Drivers’ Trust in the System

  • Defend any driver challenge quickly and easily by clicking on any score to drill down to detail, resulting in fast driver acceptance and trust in the system.
  • Drivers can access their performance history and score around the clock. Send drivers' scores direct to their device with the Driver Performance App, available to download and install on any Android-based device.
