How does Driver ID actually work?
It’s very simple and there are a few options for you, all it depends on is your personal preference. The system is extremely user-friendly and easy to install, below is a list of your options:
- Easy to use key fob set up
- Wireless Bluetooth technology
- Designated Pin/Key codes
All of the above integrates with our Telematics platform to allow you to keep a record and measure key performance indicators as well as ensuring that all of your drivers are complying with regulations. Fleet managers can monitor driving time, driving style, any incidents of speeding, time spent idling and all stops at any point from anywhere in the world (providing you have internet access and remember your portal login details). With this information, fleet managers can ensure vehicles are being driven appropriately and efficiently at all times.
Keep score, Driver scores!
There’s two things that a fleet manager needs to be aware of, one is the drivers and the other one is the actual car, lorry or van. We all have different driving styles, but something we probably don’t think about too much is how our driving style can have a major impact on a number of things. The way we drive has an effect on fuel consumption, carbon emissions and vehicle wear and tear. There’s also a lot evidence that proves a correlation between your (the driver) behaviour and the likelihood of accidents which can seriously impact the amount you pay for insurance.
Fivebars Telematics’ Driver score enables fleet managers to monitor driving patterns and take required action to any curtail negative behaviours so you can lower potential risks, improve operational performance and most importantly reduce maintenance cost.
As well as monitoring driving behaviour such as acceleration and braking, Driver score will also provide insights into typical usage patterns. This covers the times of use, the type of roads being driven on and more. This intelligence is arming organisations with evidence of ‘low risk’, helping to lower insurance premiums.
As a result of deploying our Driver score solution, our customers have been able to:
- Reduce insurance costs by 30%
- Cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 20%
- Curtail maintenance costs across an entire fleet
You’re always aware!
As you can see, our Driver ID and Driver score platform allows you and your fleet manager to always be aware and keep a close eye on your fleet as well as drivers. Not only for your protection, but also for your employees protection. Our solution is a complete, plug and play system that will allow you to concentrate on other things, but it allows you to save a significant amount of money.
