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 utilisation, compliance scores, customer satisfaction and ultimately the success of the business. Managing a fleet successfully depends deeply on driver performance and scoring.

Driver behaviour 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 in delivering 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 behaviour right in the cab.
  • Colour-based scoring makes the driver aware of areas where improvement is necessary without distracting them.
  • All advice presented to the driver is customisable 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 driving patterns in need of improvement.

Compare Drivers Fairly Across All Trucks Using Vehicle Profiler

  • The Vehicle Profiler characterises each truck on how they should be driven according to manufacturers' specifications. The system then overlays a driver's driving pattern to highlight areas 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.

Driver Performance
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.

“We’re seeing an increase in MPG by .3 or .4 percent. You might say .3 percent of a difference is not a lot, but when you’re spending millions on fuel per year, it’s a massive number. The driver scorecards are the biggest impact in this.”
