New at-a-glance dashboards and safety scorecards have been added to Teletrac’s Fleet Director 8.2. Teletrac said its fleet-management telematics solution monitors driving behavior and safety performance for individual drivers, user-defined groups of vehicles, or the fleet as a whole, allowing managers to more closely track CSA compliance.
Among the metrics the software tracks are speeding miles, severe speeding miles, harsh braking events, harsh acceleration events and bad cornering events. There is also a new “community” area for users to follow online news, advice, support, and public forums.
“Fleet Director 8.2 makes measurable contributions to both fleet cost control and safety,” said Teletrac executive vice president Drew Hamilton.
The program provides real-time analytics through at-a-glance dashboards. Safety analytics for the entire fleet, a subfleet, or any custom group of vehicles down to individual vehicles are offered, allowing managers to pinpoint unsafe driving events in real time.
All the dashboards offer a “dial-type graphics display” to give users a real-time safety score overview. Total miles, worst vehicle and best vehicle are just a few of the data points available.
“Safety is no longer just a cost center and compliance issue,” Hamilton said. “For many fleets, it’s now a strategic business priority to help trim costs and boost efficiency.”
Dashboards display each key performance indicator, showing its own individual score, enabling managers to quickly identify hotspots needing improvement. Users can easily customize these dashboards, for instance displaying only indicators of greatest importance to them and rearranging these indicators on the screen.
Users can save any number of these customized dashboards to keep a closer eye on selected drivers having sub-par safety scores, or track metrics on vehicles breaking down more often than usual.
Fleet Director 8.2 also compares a fleet’s risk scores against a reference set of GPS data collected from a statistical sample of thousands of vehicles.
