For many companies, efficient fleet management and assets operations is the key to growth and winning new business.
OnTrak Tracking provides the tools to help your company achieve the maximum benefit from your mobile assets, allowing your business to improve productivity and increase profitability.
If your fleet management safety program is like most, it is designed to protect your most precious commodity, your employees. An emphasis on driver safety is at the forefront in reducing motor carrier accident rates. Consider the findings of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regarding motor vehicle crashes. NHTSA reports that at least ninety percent of accidents are related to human error.
There is no doubt that you want your drivers to stay safe. The cost of accidents involving fatalities or injury is immeasurable. Safe driving also lessens the risk of collision and damage to both your fleet and cargo. Most companies find real time driving coaching tools act as a proactive approach to providing an enhanced safety protocol.
Driver Coaching and Fleet Risk Management
Your business likely screens and selects professional drivers based on their experience and training. Nevertheless, there is always room for improvement. One of the challenges of fleet management is coaching drivers. How do you currently monitor your drivers and address safety concerns?
Most fleet management safety programs include a hands on approach. A senior driver may be requested to do a ride along to assess and train other vehicle operators. But, what about the use of technology?
Ontrak Solutions offers integrated instantaneous 3G camera video and tracking solutions. These can easily be used as real time coaching tools. Live driver safety reports determine if there are issues with a number of potentially unsafe actions. These include driver scoring for improper maneuvering, severe acceleration, harsh braking and aggressive cornering events.
Real time coaching tools enable fleet managers to detect unsafe driving and tailor individual training to conform to company expectations. Drivers are also aware of the video tools and instinctively self-correct to avoid confrontation.
As a fully integrated vehicle GPS tracking system, companies are able to locate their fleet instantaneously. This is particularly useful when it comes to pinpointing accidents or other trigger events.

Increase Fleet Fuel Efficiency
Ontrak Solutions Vehicle Camera and Tracking solutions are optimal when it comes to saving costs to improve fleet fuel efficiency. The track and log vehicle journey history encourages vehicle usage optimization.
Idle time is a big issue when it comes to issues with fuel efficiency. Trucks and other fleet vehicles may find themselves stuck in traffic. Both delivery vehicles and emergency responders often let the engine idle during stops. Minimizing idle time is not just a matter of fuel efficiency. It is also better for the environment.
Drivers are made aware of driving habits that may increase fuel consumption. This may mean avoiding rapid acceleration and quick braking. Shifting techniques can also increase the amount of fuel used, as can less than smooth smarts.
Route planning can be made easier with Ontrak Solutions tools, with an emphasis on fuel optimization. Live updates allow drivers to change paths to avoid adverse traffic conditions. Drivers who must make frequent gear changes also use a large amount of fuel. This may be circumvented with live alerts.
