The Driver Performance Scoring App is the most comprehensive driver performance app in the industry, scoring drivers on the three most important aspects of a driver’s behaviour that impacts any fleet: performance, compliance and safety. This results in significantly reduced fuel, insurance and maintenance costs, as well as reduced fines and violation incidences. Fleets can select which aspects of driver behaviour they wish to monitor and the weight they wish to attribute to each aspect.
The Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR) app enables drivers to complete daily pre- trip and post-trip inspection reports on trucks and trailers using any Android- based phone, tablet or other in-cab device. By eliminating time-consuming and inaccurate paper-based records— and with direct, real-time upload to our reporting platform—this app is designed to save you time and money.
R:COM Mobile allows users to get live data anytime, anywhere in an iOS or Android app which reports critical information from the online reporting platform to provide fleet monitoring on-the-go. View data on vehicle location, fuel level, in-transit speed and working hours information. Also includes industry leading temperature management features by providing users with reefer unit information (including set-point and return air), door open/close events, alarms, reefer battery and fuel level information.
