With telematics systems standard in most fleet operations today, it’s important for drivers to fully understand the technology, its purpose and how it benefits them.
When you drive for a living, whether it be an HGV, delivery van, or your personal vehicle, you understand the dangers that exist on the road. Drivers can benefit from advances in fleet management technology through better route planning, improved communication with the office, valuable feedback on driving safety and much more.Build Your Solution Explore Our Platform
Telematics features can be rich in driver benefits; it's all a matter of how you look at them. Such as getting clear job directions with real-time dispatching and communication can minimise on-the-job disruptions for drivers. And reducing downtime with direct customer and home-office communications can help jobs/trips to be completed more efficiently, getting the drivers home quicker and safely. Real-time routing updates can be delivered directly to the in-cab device when new jobs or unexpected traffic or weather issues arise, minimising the amount of time in the vehicle and alleviating traffic-related stressors for the driver. Using fleet management software can reduce or eliminate time drivers spend filling out paperwork with automated timecards and proof of delivery built right into the system - ensuring no delivery or payroll errors.
When you drive for a living, your safety is one of your top priorities. GPS fleet management systems help guarantee vehicles are better maintained, ensure drivers are driving safely and in accordance with all laws, and can even reward drivers who follow safe driving practices. By embracing telematics technology, you can help to build a culture of safety within your organisation.
Perhaps one of the most important driver benefits of a fleet tracking system is the protection it provides. Multi-camera dashcams that seamlessly integrate in your fleet management system provide real-time, second-by-second HD video footage of incidents on the road, which protects drivers against fraudulent claims and helps fleet managers build meaningful rewards and recognition initiatives.
