Safety impact

Improving security fleet through telematics.

How do you build that culture of security? It all starts with measuring current driving practices. Fleet management reports are a valuable addition to any fleet safety program.

Managers can use reports to detect trends in fleet behavior, identify employees with the highest risk who need additional training and monitor the progress of the initiatives security.

Increase security is a major concern among fleets in all industries and implement measures to control the behavior of driving.

Reactive fleet to proactive

The predictive analysis by telematics can help fleets identify behaviors risky driving before the incident occurs.

Perform an in-depth analysis of high-risk indicators, and prioritize objectives.

Share analysis results with management, and make decisions to implement strategy.

Implement indicators measuring progress of the objectives set.

Follow indicators on time and correct on the fly if necessary.

The telematics is an effective strategy for proactive management.

Review periodically these 4 points will provide concrete results in reducing risks to your fleet.

The tracking risk scores for drivers make it possible to determine where additional training is needed.

Working together with drivers on the road also contributes to the positive result, through a dedicated approach to the subject matter, measurement and analysis with telematics and strategic action.

Collect telematics data alone is not enough. Taking informed action is necessary to improve the safety of drivers and fleet.

Dangerous driving reduction

With telematics, has a vision immediate of all activities in driving to better identify dangerous driving behaviors.

Three types of data used in telematics to detect dangerous driving and assist in the safety of the fleet


Excess speed
and RPM

Harsh braking
and acceleration

Changes constant
zig-zag

Not only do you want to ensure maximum security of your drivers at all times, but you also want to avoiding unnecessary costs associated with careless driving.

Prevent rather than regret

Predictive telematics analysis can help fleets identify risky driving behaviors before the incident occurs.

Distracted driving detection


The telematics can help companies in their efforts to reduce the distracted driving. Distracted driving is plaguing fleets and owners require solutions:


Driver ID

Identify the driver at the time of starting their journey and assign everything that happens during it.

Identifying driving habits

Quantify exceptions committed during your trip to punctualize your driving and determine if you require training.

Instant driver feedback

Instantly inform the driver of the exceptions you are committing to correct the way you drive.

Distracted driving

When the driver's approach leaves the way, things happen quickly. Distracted driving has devastating and irreversible consequences.

The average collision cost per vehicle annually is $4,000 to $8,000 USD. These figures could devastate your end result as a business owner.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted drivers on U.S. roads killed 3,166 people in 2017.

When sending or reading a text message, look away from the road for about 5 seconds, with an average speed of 88 km/h it is equivalent to driving with your eyes closed throughout the football field.

Slow down

No need to accelerate.
The information telematics help in strengthening driving policy, with point reports of speeding and dangerous driving.

Speeding

It is one of the most common factors contributing to traffic-related accidents and deaths. In 2017, speeding related to 29% of all fatal accidents, 9,613 lives were lost (NHTSA).

It doesn't save time and isn't really a more efficient way to get from one place to another. Any time saved is marginal compared to higher risks and indirect collision costs.

It increases fuel expenditure, so aiming at driver speed is a really valuable effort for carriers.

Fleet safety requires a continuous effort.

Vial safety

Increasing the level of security, eliminating accidents, protecting drivers, saving lives and avoiding unnecessary expenses, are the main concerns among fleets in all industries.

Transportation companies must implement road safety programs that can have a broad scope, and influence the entire organization. This requires technology telematics.


Road safety programs

Identify objective

Communication strategy

Results assessment

Decision making

Telematics is a strategy effective management proactive.

Collecting telematics data alone is not enough. Taking informed action is also necessary to improve the safety of drivers and fleet.

Recognizing the human element in road safety is essential.

Rules and exceptions

By implementing telemetry in fleet management, the information generated should be used as a source for decisions, which is why it is very important to establish rules and exceptions.

They are of great utility, as they are conditioned that, in their compliance they represent affectations or benefits in the operation.


Speeding

Harsh braking

Hard acceleration

Harsh cornering

Using the seat belt

Possible accident


The real one value is when they are given an indicator-level turn that represents an impact on the profitability business.

Dashboards with indicators help generate comparisons between drivers or vehicles, and understand differences in results obtained.

Benefits

Telematics is a smart investment, with which you can obtain valuable information for a safety analysis of the fleet and drivers.

This requires fleets to drive greater productivity, implement technology telematics and take proactive and monitoring measures to make sound decisions to avoid unnecessary expenses and increase profitability operational and business.

Specific goals

Reduce the cost of accidents: save lives!

Save fuel and reduce emissions

Operational cost-saving opportunities

Increase business profitability

Protecting employees from car accidents is a cost-effective investment of time and resources.

Benefits in the effective implementation of telematics

+29% SECURITY

Unsafe driving has a tremendous effect on financial performance, including tangible costs, reputation costs that affect sales, depreciation, and asset cancellations.


-30% FUEL

Monitor fuel usage and optimize factors that influence fuel efficiency, such as: aggressive driving, idling times, out-of-hours use.


+28% PRODUCTIVITY

Route planning and optimization are two of the most important activities to increase the capacity of commercial vehicles and increase asset efficiency.




If it can be measured, it can be improved
