MiX Telematics is proud to support National Road Safety Week 2022 and in doing so, help to prevent deaths or serious injuries on Australian roads.
In the past 12 months there have been 1,137 road deaths. This is an increase of 2.3%. Presently, the rate of annual deaths per 100,000 stands at 4.4.*. This statistic is unacceptable.
National Road Safety Week is a great cause and helps to put a spotlight on dangerous driving behaviours, such as speeding, driving while under the influence, fatigue, and distraction.
We are encouraging each of you to get involved and make a pledge to save lives:
Coming together for Road Safety in Australia
As road safety advocates, MiX Telematics has been helping to make fleets safer. Clients using our fleet management solutions typically benefit from a 50 – 70% reduction in crash rates as a result of identifying and rectifying risky driver behaviours.
Generating reports can be bittersweet. They’re business-critical but often frustrating to compile and tedious to set up. Creating layouts with trends and graphical information can also be time-consuming and take away from other valuable core competencies.
MiX Telematics is taking reporting to the next level with MiX Insight Agility, an extension to the MiX Insight Reports suite that allows for dynamic data interaction in Microsoft Excel.
What MiX Insight Agility can do for you?
MiX Insight Agility is accessible to existing MiX Insight Report users – it is simply enabled on request via the MiX Fleet Manager platform. Once that is done, an Excel template populated with fleet and driver data is sent to the user. There is no need to recreate the spreadsheet; instead, it can be instantly refreshed at the touch of a button.
MiX Insight Agility is an extension of MiX’s current reporting suite and uses Microsoft Excel as the user interface. As such, it is accessible, easy to use and flexible.
All the how-tos
The Excel template contains detailed instructions, a glossary, links to useful videos, and instructions on how to create PivotTables, PivotCharts, Timeline and slicers to analyse data and create interactive applications. Support requests can be logged via MiX Assist.
Variety of data fields
Users can explore and analyse a number of areas relating to their data, which can then be easily transformed using familiar tools in Excel to create the desired format and layout.
Compatibility with Excel and other BI tools
MiX Insight Agility is exclusively built for use with Microsoft Excel. Various plug-ins and data connectors for other BI tools are available on request.
Fast and flexible. Unlike with static reports, MiX Insight Agility gives users the power to create and shape customised reports in the format they prefer.
True autonomy. Reports and ad-hoc queries can be created without the need to log manual requests for assistance or report development. This eliminates dependencies on report subscriptions, increases productivity and saves time.
Once reports are in place, they are easy to alter or enhance, allowing users to customise their analysis to their own needs.
Telematics data is invaluable to the safety, efficiency and compliance of your fleet. It helps you identify poor driver behaviour, monitor fuel consumption, improve fleet utilisation, and implement driver training. However, organising this crucial data should be done in a meaningful and accessible way.
To help our customers achieve this, we’ve developed MiX Integrate. It is an intuitive API platform connector that extracts your driver and vehicle data straight from the source and plugs it directly into any third-party system or program of your choosing. Using in-depth filtering options and a wide variety of data points, you can select exactly what information gets uploaded to which business system to simplify fleet-related decision-making.
How it works
After your telematics data is captured by MiX servers, it is fed from your chosen telematics solution onto the big-picture MiX Integrate platform. Here, you and your development team get a convenient overview of all your telematics data.
On this platform, you can now organise your data according to different levels and data points, each level more detailed than the previous one. For example, when you choose to analyse journey data, you can view additional, in-depth information about the driver ID, journey status, hazards on the road, purpose of the journey and more.
Duty to comply with transport law is shared under Chain of Responsibility (COR) laws in Australia. This means that all parties in the road transport supply chain are tasked with ensuring the safe operation of all transport activities.
It’s not just drivers but anybody that is involved in transport activities who can be held responsible and legally liable should there be a breach in road laws. Parties in the Chain of Responsibility include:
Senior management team members
Individuals responsible for loading and or unloading a vehicle (including any goods in the vehicle)
Consignors or consignees
Prime contractors for a vehicle (in cases where drivers are self-employed)
Transport operators need to be able to demonstrate that they are meeting their obligations under COR and, are proactively monitoring and managing driver behaviour. Compliance with speed, fatigue, mass, dimension and loading standards is also necessary.
It’s important to understand your obligations to ensure compliance and avoid penalties. Breaches can occur in instances where:
Drivers fail to adhere to fatigue management requirements.
Vehicle mass or dimension limits have been exceeded.
Loading requirements have not been met.
Vehicles have not been maintained according to roadworthy standards.
Contact us to discuss how MiX Telematics’ solutions can help you ensure Chain of Responsibility compliance across your transport operation.
Do your vehicles operate in remote areas with poor GSM coverage or travel cross-border? If so, this can lead to a breakdown in communication or high roaming costs.
MiX Sat Comms is a practical yet sophisticated add-on that provides reliable and cost-effective global satellite communication in all locations. By using satellite communication, MiX Sat Comms ensures uninterrupted access to mobile assets, regardless of connectivity outages.
As local GSM connectivity fluctuates, MiX Sat Comms automatically determines and switches to the most economical method of communication, whether that be GSM or satellite. Critical event notifications are thus never missed and high-risk or high-value loads can always be tracked because of this.
MiX Telematics is a leading provider of fleet management solutions to many of the world’s top passenger transport companies so we understand how important it is to help deliver the very best service to customers by improving efficiency and passenger comfort.
To do just that, we offer two in-cab coaching aids that assist drivers with improving their driving style and performance.
The RIBAS in-cab driving display helps drivers to improve their driving style with the use of alerts that are triggered by predetermined events.
Each letter in the RIBAS name correlates with an event:
R = Over-revving or ride comfort (aggressive cornering)
I = Excessive idling
B = Harsh braking
A = Harsh acceleration
S = Speeding
When the abovementioned parameters are exceeded (or not), the RIBAS system uses Red/Amber/Green (RAG) status lights and audible warning tones to give drivers feedback on their driving style. Red represents a driver exceeding a parameter for a certain amount of time, Amber means the driver has almost exceeded the parameter but self-corrected timeously and Green shows that the driver is driving well (in other words, not exceeding parameters).
The unit can be configured in a number of different ways to provide customers with a choice as to what method has been proven to be most effective for delivering alerts to their drivers.
The RIBAS system can also be integrated with the MyMiX app to enable drivers to track and monitor their driving performance and scores.
Immediate notification to driver of any errors or transgressions while on the road.
Safer, smoother driving.
Improved passenger experience.
Reduced wear and tear on vehicles, and subsequently reduced maintenance costs.
Improved fuel efficiency.
Reduced accident severity.
MiX DriveMate is an ingenious in-vehicle driver display, offered as an extension to the MiX Fleet Manager solution, that alerts drivers to their driving habits through a system of seven LED lights.
If a driver does not self-correct their behaviour, a buzzer sounds to notify them and the associated event will go on to be recorded in MiX Fleet Manager for an authorised person to review.
Not only does MiX DriveMate promote safe and efficient driving while drivers are on the clock, it also affords them the privacy they require when off the clock too.
MiX DriveMate can also be integrated with the MyMiX app to enable drivers to track and monitor their driving performance and scores.
Savings across the board. With less speeding, harsh acceleration, braking and cornering comes reduced fuel consumption, vehicle wear and tear, and maintenance costs.
Reduction in number and severity of accidents. When drivers practise safer driving techniques, accidents becomes less frequent and severe, leading to saved lives and reduced costs.
Your drivers are the most valuable assets in your fleet. How they drive your vehicles and perform daily tasks directly impact how safe and efficient your fleet is. So, how do you ensure that their actions are in line with your goals?
The answer is MyMiX, a driver-focused app specifically designed to encourage and improve driver engagement. Drivers can see information relevant to their driving performance as well as the completion of tasks.
MyMiX provides drivers with direct access to useful information which allows them monitor and manage their performance to ultimately help them drive more economically and more safely, subsequently helping to positively and directly impact the bottom line of your business.
MyMiX users can see how their driving style compares to their co-workers and identify the areas they need to focus on to improve their driving performance
MyMiX is yet another way that MiX Telematics helps customers to save lives and save money.
Safer drivers equal more economical drivers. By ensuring safe driving behaviour, fleet operators automatically facilitate driving habits that promote economical driving and subsequent fuel savings.
Easy and direct access to information. Drivers can log into their MyMiX profile 24 hours a day, via the web or a mobile device.
Strong performance culture. MyMiX gives drivers the opportunity to own their professional development and contribute to business objectives. Not only can drivers view their own scores, but they can also see how they rank compared to site and organisation averages. This sparks healthy competition which helps operators cultivate a strong performance culture.
If you’ve ever had to contend with manual journey management planning, you’ll know how tedious and error-prone it can be.
MiX Journey Management offers an easy-to-use alternative to old-fashioned paper-based systems, allowing for real-time monitoring of journeys that have been pre-approved.
This solution makes it possible to reduce risk by helping fleets to comply with corporate health and safety policies and reduces the workload on operational staff. It features customisable route planning, flexible workflow management options as well as automated data reporting. MiX Telematics’ vehicle tracking systems monitor vehicles in real-time using both street-level and satellite maps. All exceptions picked up are immediately relayed via a multitude of contact channels including the MiX online portal, email and text.
MiX Journey Management suits fleet operators from a wide range of industries. It’s especially ideal for those owning or managing a large amount of vehicles that regularly travel long distances and carry passengers or cargo. Not only does MiX Journey Management help deal with the major issue of risk exposure, it also improves safety, customer service quality and compliance.
Operating a fleet is undoubtedly expensive. Fuel is largely to thank for this as it tends to be one of the largest costs organisations have to manage and control.
But did you know that data captured using your telematics solution can be used for more accurate Fuel Tax Credit (FTC) calculations and help to increase your claims by up to 30%?
MiX Telematics has partnered with Nuonic, a leading-edge data analytics firm, to launch an innovative solution called Prism that optimises your FTC calculations. It enables you to claim the Fuel Tax Credits which you are entitled to with ease and confidence. Prism combines and automates real-time telematics data and information to deliver market-leading accuracy with detailed location and boundary analysis to determine your fleet’s exact operation and fuel consumption.
Using the actionable data captured from MiX Telematics’ in-vehicle monitoring system (IVMS), Prism precisely calculates the fuel tax rebate you qualify for according to eligible FTC activities.
Based on this and your fleet specifications, Prism provides the necessary information which you can enter into your BAS (business activity statement) or you can apply the fuel tax allotment to your purchased fuel records using simply online tools.
Prism users have frequently seen significantly improved FTC outcomes compared to their previous claims because higher precision calculations are being made with the most detailed data available.
