Don’t let the Myths of driver risk defeat your business profitability!

Don’t let the Myths of driver risk defeat your business profitability!

To monitor driver risk takes more than simple observation of one or two facts. It’s all too often over simplified down to:

  • Does the driver have an unblemished driver record with the police?
  • Checking driver records (typically manually created) will tell me all I need to know.
  • GPS tracking to give me distances driven or where the vehicle went is more than enough.

Yes, all the above help but only part of a more complete set of data that is now easily achievable and will reduce your business risk significantly and provide direct $ returns.

Critically it’s important to remain competitive these days to establish a baseline of use across your fleet and drivers, monitor regularly if not continuously collect all factors including road and weather conditions, speed limits (many systems can integrate local speed limits), braking, acceleration, time of day and areas driven all complete the picture. The link below will provide more on the topic and we can also provide more detail on how this can be economically implemented into any business with our Helpten Cloud services.
