Customers are right at the heart of CameraMatics. And it is drivers who are at the centre of our customers’ businesses. Fleets need drivers. Fleets need excellent drivers.
But with a busy fleet, how do you know how individual drivers are doing without waiting until something goes wrong? Many customers tell us they would like to be able to see – at a glance – how particular drivers are doing.
Our customers asked: we delivered.
Driver Scorecard technology
The new CameraMatics Driver Scorecard is one of the latest features in our fleet management software.
A driver scorecard isn’t about telling drivers off or being ‘big brother’. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The driver scorecard shows – with evidence – just how good your drivers are. Driver Scorecard is a powerful tool for rewarding, motivating, and training drivers. Of course, although most drivers are keen to be the best they can, complacency can set in and standards can slip over time. Drivers can exhibit risky driving behaviours.
Risky driving costs lives.
Driver buy-in and involvement is key to successful, safe, and consistent driving across your fleet.
Does driving quality matter as long as things get from A to B?
The answer is an unequivocal YES!
Good drivers are good for your business. High-quality driving leads to fewer accidents and incidents. It goes without saying that accidents and incidents are expensive, stressful and time-consuming. Avoiding them is a high priority for all fleet operators.
The biggest factor impacting fleet safety and efficiency is drivers.
Better drivers contribute to savings across your fleet. These include greater efficiency and lower fuel costs, lower wear and tear on vehicles, as well as the more obvious lower insurance premiums and payouts, reduction in accident repair costs and vehicle off-the-road costs.
But that’s not all. Prioritizing excellent driving quality is also important for your company profile. Your vehicles are moving adverts for your business and poor driving can lead to the loss of potential business, as well as reputation.
Driver Safety, Training & Coaching:
Using CameraMatics gives you the opportunity for consistent training of all drivers. The system provides real-time feedback enabling step-by-step coaching for drivers – where needed. It’s easy to see if a particular driver needs to focus on harsh braking, for instance. Increased feedback leads to improved driver safety and general safety and gives the opportunity to reward consistently safe practices. It also works to improve driver retention.
