Fleet mobile app improves driver behaviour
Driver performance improvements are being achieved in fleets with the use of a Spireon mobile app and monitoring programme to provide business benefits.
Spireon has introduced the Driver Performance Program and mobile app to positively influence driver behavior and fleet performance. The product will be available later this year.
Spireon’s Driver Performance Program positively influences driver behaviour with a fun, engaging, incentive-based system. Individual drivers and teams of drivers compete for rewards and recognition during a competition season, and can view their rankings and scores on their smartphones through the mobile app. Additionally, fleet managers have full access to a wealth of driver performance data to provide constructive performance recommendations and coaching, as well as generate detailed reports.
The program’s game format is proven to drive real business results. Extensive customer pilot programmes have delivered significant increases in driver productivity, efficiency and on-time deliveries, all key factors that contribute to improving a business’ bottom line.
“As part of our commitment to customer success, Spireon is focused on delivering products that go well beyond location-based services to programs that drive real business results,” stated Steve Blair, senior vice president of enterprise sales at Spireon. “The Spireon Driver Performance Program signals a significant evolution in the telematics industry, taking rich data and putting it into action by empowering the fleet drivers and operators with an exciting program full of positive reinforcement, recognition and incentives.”
While many of the program features are designed to improve driver behaviour, the true benefit is increased business profitability. Organisations who have deployed it have seen up to a 50% drop in accidents by helping drivers identify and improve behaviour, including speeding and aggressive driving such as hard braking and acceleration. Customers have also seen cost savings through fuel purchase reductions up to 15% and up to 50% in idle time reduction.
“For us, the connection between driver performance and business results is crystal clear,” added Kris Peterinelli, Director of Fleet & Pharmacy Logistics, Triad Isotopes. “We quickly recognised a return on investment with our Spireon Driver Performance Program deployment, achieving significant operational cost savings in addition to the significant benefit of having drivers that enjoy the engaging program format.”
