The Questions:

How do I protect my company from the risks of distracted driving?

How do I communicate our safe driver policy and audit compliance?

The Answer: Safe Driver Policy Compliance

Each driver is presented with your Safe Driver and Distracted Driving policy. Use our templates to get started!

Each driver reviews the policy and acknowledges your expected safe driving behaviors when behind the wheel. 

The driver acceptance is stored for reference and audit at any time.

Safe Driver Reports provide monthly feedback to help you communicate performance against safe driving behaviors.

Drivers receive real-time feedback on their personal driving behavior

Create standard text templates to be sent automatically when specific notifications occur. This can be used a healthy reminder if drivers practice unsafe behavior.


The Questions:

Help me build a safe driving culture in my organization.

What can I do to engage our team in improving driver safety?

What are industry best practices to identify risky behavior and incent improvement?

The Answer: Safe Driver Leaderboard

Safe Driver Leaderboard ranks drivers by their safety scores and shows them how they stack up against their peers. 

Communicate your priorities and provide regular statistical reporting on actual vs. goal. (i.e. No Texting While Driving, Days Without Accident)

Identify and reward top performers motivating users to increase their score, reach the number one spot, and earn bragging rights.

Create healthy competition and motivate drivers to earn the top spot resulting in safer and more engaged drivers which boosts fleet performance.

Intervene with risky drivers and set performance improvement plans to reduce your costs and risks.


 The Questions:

Help me optimize our customer responsiveness and schedule management.

Who is closest to answer an emergency call?

I need a tool at a jobsite. Who can get it there quickly?

Pinpoint the route location and determine which vehicle is closest.

Send re-route direction to the driver (Not when they are driving of course!!)

Enhanced alerts let you establish a maintenance program specific to your vehicles.

Set thresholds on upcoming maintenance so you can be proactive vs reactive when maintenance on your vehicles is approaching.

You no longer have to rely on your drivers getting the oil changed in their vehicle.
