Fleet Service Great Britain (Fleet Service GB) will showcase its newly launched and revolutionary online fully-integrated work-related road safety programme at the inaugural Driver Risk Management Show.
Called Achieve, the programme unites all aspects of the vehicle and driver management process – eligibility to drive, crash history, vehicle maintenance record, motoring offences and data collected via telematics and other on-board vehicle technologies – to provide managers with a single silo of live and dynamic data with no requirement to access a ‘mishmash’ of sources.
Building on Fleet Service GB’s established driver risk profiler incorporating driver licence checking and driver training, Achieve is a sophisticated continuous driver management programme that uses the very latest IT functionality to compile a real time driver risk profile delivering analysis and action prompts.
Delegates to the Show, which is being held on Thursday, October 25, at Donington Park Race Circuit, will be able to view the Achieve programme and gain an insight into how it can help reduce driver-influenced fleet costs – the single biggest drain on fleet budgets – and aid legislative compliance.
Visitors will be able to complete an Achieve profiler and use the Fleet Service GB driver app to complete in real time a vehicle check and see how results are instantly fed through to the driver live score, both online and on the app. Demonstrations will also include how every aspect of driver behaviour is captured and fed into the live score making driver management effective and real time. Additionally, delegates will also be able to experience many of the driver training – online and practical – interventions that are included as standard as part of Achieve.
Marcus Bray, head of sales at Fleet Service GB, the fast-growing technology-led co-ownership company with more than 7,000 company and ‘grey fleet’ cars and commercial vehicles under management, said: “Managing work-related road safety is critical to all businesses and key to that is compliance, but also disciplined driver performance.
“The uniqueness of Achieve is that it continuously records and measures both individual driver compliance and performance via a points process to compile a real-time driver history taking into account all key data to produce a ‘drive safe, stay safe’ employee mentality.”
Achieve compliance starts with drivers, including family members if necessary, securing their employer’s Authority to Drive whether a company vehicle or a ‘grey fleet’ vehicle – an employee’s own car driven on business journeys – that includes Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency driver licence validation and endorsement history. The technology risk assesses all applicants using agreed company parameters and compliance requirements, also allowing for bespoke e-learning training programmes, on-the-road driver training and a unique driver well-being profile if required.
The continuous recording of driver performance automatically adds vehicle maintenance data – for example frequency of tyre replacement – crash management information, road traffic offences, telematics data, fuel usage information and records procedure compliance – for example if a ‘grey fleet’ vehicle adding service and MoT details and insurance renewal – with points allocated on a per event basis.
