Four Reasons To Monitor Driver Behaviour

25/09/2018 by Mark Schneider in Telematics

Your drivers’ behaviour can have a big impact on your business’s bottom line, but all too many businesses seem content to let them just drive off each day and trust that they’re doing the right thing. A business that depends on its fleet depends on its drivers and in the age of telematic technology there’s really no excuse for not keeping a close eye on your drivers’ behaviour. Here are four good reasons for doing so:


Australia’s roads can be dangerous places, especially if your work involves driving, with statistics showing that fleet vehicles are more likely to be involved in crashes than non-work vehicles. But the good news is that Fleetcare has the telematics solutions your business needs to keep your drivers safe on the roads. With its mix of advanced software and accessories, Fleetcare Telematics can monitor driver fatigue and instantly detect when your drivers are speeding or accelerating or decelerating too fast.

If there’s a crash Fleetcare Telematics will immediately let you know there’s trouble, where the vehicle is and how badly it’s damaged, including if it’s rolled over, so you can send help immediately.

Locate your drivers

Do you ever have those suspicions that your drivers are not where they should be? That they’re goofing off somewhere when they should be on the job? With Fleetcare Telematics you can dispense with all those lingering doubts. A glance at your computer monitor is all you’ll need to confirm that all your drivers are exactly where they should be.

However, knowing the vehicles location is not all doom and gloom for your drivers. You can use vehicle location information to ensure accurate billing to your customers, and prevent potential disputes over employee time spent on location.

Knowing your drivers’ exact whereabouts is also crucial when you need to dispatch the right vehicle to the right location quickly and efficiently so you can meet your customers’ needs. In an increasingly competitive business environment Fleetcare Telematics will keep you ahead of the pack.

Reduce vehicle wear and tear

The old joke that company vehicles can do things that your own car can’t (like 0-100 in 6 seconds) becomes just that, an old joke, with Fleetcare Telematics. By closely monitoring speeding, over-revving, harsh cornering and rapid acceleration and deceleration and excessive idling you’ll have the tools at your fingertips to reduce unnecessary wear and tear on your vehicles, maintaining their value and reducing costly repairs and maintenance.

When you can closely monitor your drivers’ behaviour you can reward and encourage drivers who are doing the right thing while correcting those who need to get their act together. That’s got to be good for them, good for your vehicles and good for your bottom line as well.

Meet compliance requirements

Businesses right around the country are relying on Fleetcare Telematics to reduce the costs of regulatory requirements for environmental emissions and fatigue management and other OH&S regulations. But it’s also making compliance with stringent quality assurance regulations a lot easier and cheaper by automating all that data collection.

When you tally up the benefits it’s easy to see why Fleetcare Telematics is a total no-brainer for your business. Need to know more? Contact Fleetcare today on 134 333.
