Analytics Dashboards in Teletrac's Fleet Director 8.2 Help Fleet Managers Improve Safety, Control Costs, Mitigate Risks and Ensure CSA 2010 Compliance

GARDEN GROVE, Calif.--Teletrac widened its lead in real-time data and online analytics for safety today by releasing Fleet Director 8.2, the company's industry-leading fleet management telematics solution. Fleet Director 8.2 gives flexible new at-a-glance dashboards and safety scorecards to help monitor driving behavior and safety performance for individual drivers, user-defined groups of vehicles and the fleet as a whole. Critical safety indicators include speeding miles, severe speeding miles, harsh braking events, harsh acceleration events and bad cornering events. Fleet Director 8.2 also includes a new "Community" area, giving users easy access to online news, advice, support and forums that can help them gain full value from Fleet Director and the underlying information captured by Teletrac.

"Fleet Director 8.2 makes measurable contributions to both fleet cost control and safety," said Teletrac executive vice president Drew Hamilton. Fleet managers can now pinpoint unsafe driving events and analyze driving behavior patterns on a real time, ongoing basis.

"Safety is no longer just a cost center and compliance issue," Hamilton said. "For many fleets, it's now a strategic business priority to help trim costs and boost efficiency." For this reason, Teletrac captures the industry's widest range of safety-related vehicle and driver data. New analytics dashboards and scorecards in Fleet Director 8.2 make this information more useful and actionable in real time -- to help fleet managers increase bottom-line safety performance, ensure CSA 2010 compliance and improve fleet operations overall.

Real-time analytics dashboards

New dashboards let Fleet Director 8.2 users view safety performance analytics based on information generated by Teletrac from a variety of real-time vehicle monitoring and driving behavior data streams. Users can view safety analytics for an entire fleet, a subfleet, or any group of vehicles the user selects -- even by clicking individual vehicles to form a group. Alternatively, users can view safety analytics for any single selected vehicle.

Dashboards each feature a dial-type graphics display that gives users a dynamic real-time "safety score" overview. Users can also view total miles analyzed, worst vehicle, best vehicle and other information. Dashboards display each key performance indicator, showing its own individual score, enabling managers to quickly identify hotspots needing improvement. Users can easily customize these dashboards, for instance displaying only indicators of greatest importance to them and rearranging these indicators on the screen. Users can save any number of these customized dashboards to keep a closer eye on selected drivers having sub-par safety scores, or track metrics on vehicles breaking down more often than usual.

Further, to give users additional context, Fleet Director 8.2 analytics compare a fleet's risk scores to a reference set of GPS data collected from a statistical sample of thousands of US vehicles.

User community access

A new "Community" tab in Fleet Director 8.2 gives users ready access to a broad range of news, knowledge and experience drawn from Teletrac experts and the 10,000-fleet Teletrac user community. Here, users can browse online news and quickly locate advice, support and forums to help gain full value from Fleet Director and the rich and extensive information captured by Teletrac.
