MiX Telematics announced that it is strengthening its MiX Fleet Manager and MiX SafeDrive solutions with the addition of MyMiX – a driver engagement platform that, the company said, enables its customers to run safer and more efficient fleet operations.
According to the company, MyMiX provides professional drivers with 24-hour access, via the web or a mobile device, to information about their performance – no matter the industry in which they operate. Driver scoring is the first module available on MyMiX, which is accessible from iOS or Android mobile devices.
“For successful fleet operators, it’s no secret: engaged drivers means better business. MyMiX is yet another way we’re helping our customers cultivate a culture of safer driving, which ultimately leads to more efficient fleet operations,” said Catherine Lewis, executive vice president of technology.
MyMiX is available to customers subscribing to MiX Fleet Manager Premium or MiX SafeDrive and provides drivers with daily and weekly scores as well as six-month trends. Drivers can also drill down and view significant driving events on a map – such as harsh braking or speeding incidents. The app also allows drivers to see how they rank compared to site and organization averages, while being able to view data and scores across all the vehicles they have used.
MyMiX was trialed by Cardiff Bus, a long-standing bus and coach customer in the United Kingdom. The trial, according to the company, showed that giving drivers access to their performance data at their convenience is an “ideal way of sharing important information without exerting undue pressure on individuals.”
“We’re proud to further enhance our MiX Fleet Manager and MiX SafeDrive offerings, and feel confident in saying that tools like MyMiX are the way of the future for fleet operators who are serious about safety and efficiency,” Lewis said.
