Telematics has evolved to become a business essential for Fleet Managers providing the vital link between a company, its vehicles and drivers. Today, fleet management solutions not only help managers to reduce their fleet running costs but they also enable them to improve accident rates, better manage on-vehicle stock and reduce their carbon footprint.
Customers deploy MiX Telematics solutions because they want to realise specific business objectives, usually in response to some kind of presenting problem. It is on the delivery of these benefits that we focus our energies, ensuring that we work with our clients in a way that fully addresses any people, system and process issues as appropriate to achieve your objectives.
Improved driver behaviour
Bad driving habits are unsafe, unnecessary and can cause loss of life. Poor driving ultimately also costs your organisation money. Together with an on-board computer and optional in-cab display system, MiX Telematics can provide your company with live information pertaining to the operation of your vehicles. The data instantly gets transmitted from your vehicle directly to one of our secure data centers so that management reports contain objective information. Drivers can also be alerted to their mistakes using the in-vehicle buzzer or a display device such as the RIBAS accessory.
Trip Reports and Vehicle Utilisation
Trip reports provide insight into the journeys undertaken by drivers, highlighting exceptions (e.g. entry into no-go zones), driving violations (e.g. over speeding), and include details such as trip start date and time, location from which departed, trip distance, end location, driving time, idling time, parking time, associated driver, etc.
With this exciting solution by MiX Telematics, transport and logistics fleet customers have achieved a fuel consumption savings of up to 15 %. Our systems allow you to monitor the fuel consumption of each of your vehicles individually, and by extension the fuel efficiency of your whole fleet, giving you an immediate return on investment.
The blue driver code-plug, commonly known as the driver tag, is used to control/restrict vehicle access and identify drivers to the vehicle. By using the driver tag you can ensure that each trip undertaken has a driver associated with it, thus enabling you to associate driving violations and events with specific drivers and enabling input into driver training & incentive programmes.
FM-Web Rag Scoring Reports Suite
This safety feature records driver-related events like over-speeding, over-revving, harsh braking, and harsh acceleration to classify driver behavior as Red, Amber, or Green. These classifications can then inform an employer whether or not they need to action any driver behaviour modification programmes for their employees, including additional training or counseling.
Keeping your team in the field connected to the office not only enables a rapid response to customer requests, but also provides visibility so that you can send the most appropriate resource to the next job, fight rising fuel and salary costs and invoice much sooner.
