Every day we hear from customers the opportunities they see to improve their fleet management. The changing landscape related to driver availability, training, and risk management is top of mind too. We listened! Ready Wireless is excited to bring you these fresh, innovative enhancements to the Ready Fleet solution. Below we highlight a few of the questions our customers asked and the upgrades that solve their problems.
Fleet management involves multiple duties, from vehicle financing and maintenance to speed and fuel management. But the most important duty by far of a fleet manager is safety. Fleet vehicle accidents are extremely costly to a business—not only does it potentially involve human injuries and mechanical repairs, but also vehicle and driver downtime. Altogether, these things can become a massive financial and legal burden for the company.
Distracted driving brings with it a heavy cost. Distracted drivers are significantly more likely to be involved in accidents, which can quickly rack up high levels of property damage, personal injuries, and more. The average amount of property damage alone in an auto accident totals $7,500. When you add in permanent injuries and deaths, the financial toll rises quickly, often totaling in the millions of dollars. When you have a fleet full of drivers, however, who is responsible for stopping distracted driving?
As the leader of a company that employs drivers, you likely know how vital it is to prevent car accidents. Distracted driving is now the leading cause of vehicular accidents, highlighting the urgent need for platforms and strategies designed to reduce the number of distracted driving accidents.
Distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of accidents, up there with intoxication and left turns. While talking to passengers, eating, and reaching into the car are all causes of distracted driving, mobile devices have made the problem infinitely worse. Especially for people who drive professionally.
When it comes to managing a professional fleet of drivers and service vehicles, nothing is more useful to your business than mobile workforce technology. After all, what you run is exactly that: A mobile workforce. It’s excellent to be able to closely track your fleet from headquarters and offer real-time support when it is needed.
There are few occupations more potentially dangerous than being a professional driver. Most people think of driving as a relatively relaxed job. You get to sit, listen to music, and navigate around your familiar town day after day. But never forget that vehicles are dangerous and roads are filled with hazards.
