Driver Monitoring Systems

Driver monitoring systems report witnessed incidents of improper driving actions. This allows fleet to zero in and identify specific driving problems, providing them with the opportunity to take steps to correct them. Here is a sampling of what is available.

Safety and vehicle monitoring from Driver's Alert

The Driver's Alert system helps companies manage their fleet safety and vehicle monitoring through “how's my driving” decals.

Every participating vehicle is given a unique decal number with a toll-free number to encourage concerned motorists to phone in complaints or compliments about driver safety.

Driver's Alert in-house operators take the calls, create a report that contains the name and number of the caller, the vehicle's decal number, and information about the call, and transmit it by fax or e-mail to the fleet safety director and any other personnel the company deems appropriate.

In addition, the company provides trend analysis summary reports that include percentage of calls per vehicle (categorized by complaint, compliment, and faulty equipment calls), multiple calls by driver name, incident type trend by percentage, and time of day trend.
