Fleet Management Software That Monitors Driver Performance And Safe Driving Behavior

driver_iconMonitoring your fleet drivers with the VHM OBD2 driver behavior monitor enables you to track the driving performance of your employees when they are on the road. 

Fleet Genius stores and analyzes driver behaviors reported by the OBD2 monitors and the system alerts you about bad driving behaviors like speeding, agressive starts, hard braking and other behaviors that indicate poor driver safety.   Fleet Genius makes fleet safety monitoring easier.

TRACK AGGRESSIVE STARTS AND HARD BRAKING INCIDENTS

When your employees leave the office they are not only your ambassadors to your customers they are also actively representing you on the roads.  Bad driving behavior upsets potential customers and opens up potential liability as well.

The Fleet Genius OBD2 monitors track driver behavior the moment your employees turn on the engine and report that back to you.  Bad driving like aggressive starts and hard braking indicate reckless behavior, distracted driving or worse behaviors behind the wheel.

Fleet Genius reports on typical aggressive driving metrics like G-force ratings and report the presence of those per trip.  A high incidence of these events usually indicates a problem driver and requires remediation.

Most organizations know how much fuel they use every year but very few understand how much of the fuel has been wasted through excessive idling.  Monitoring and preventing excessive idling can save thousands of dollars of fuel expense every year.

Fleet Genius fleet management software monitors the information collected by the VHM OBD-2 fleet monitors on idle time per trip,  The system collects every idle event over 1 second and also highlights idle events that meet user-defined targets (e.g. every event over 5 minutes),

This data can then be used to identify drivers with consistently higher than target or higher than average idling times.  Most GPS fleet tracking systems can't provide this data because they never talk to the engine's computer.

REDUCE DRIVER SPEEDING INCIDENTS THROUGH MONITORING AND MITIGATION

Fleet Genius tracks driver behavior.  The fleet management software collects speeding data from your vehicles and lets you view it trip-by-trip and over time.  Your employee drivers who drive at high rates of speed are easily identified.  The California Energy Commission estimates that slowing down from 65 MPH to 55 MPH reduces fuel consumption by up to 15%.

Fleet Genius tracks vehicle speed for every trip and summarizes that information trip-by-trip.  Identifying the time your drivers spend driving over 55 MPH and correcting that through clear business policies can save 15% of your fuel costs.

Identify problem drivers who consistently speed and take remedial action to save fuel and improve driver safety.

GREY FLEET DRIVERS AND YOUR POTENTIAL LIABILITY

When your employees drive their personally owned vehicles (POV) to perform work for your business you could be liable for their mistakes and bad driving related accidents.  As soon as they turn that engine on you could be responsible.
