Telogis Takes Driver Safety to the Next Level with Telogis Driver Scorecard(TM)
Press release date: March 6, 2012
Telogis enhances its driver scorecard to manage and communicate the behavioral factors that directly influence driver safety; allowing for configurable scoring for fleets to improve safety programs as well as to provide communication of safety initiatives to staff, management, and insurance providers
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- Telogis Inc., the platform for location intelligence, further enhances its driver safety capabilities with the introduction of Telogis Driver Scorecard(TM) -- part of the Telogis Fleet Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) fleet management system -- to more easily manage and communicate the behaviors that directly influence driver and asset safety. Telogis Driver Scorecard offers the most extensive metrics available to fleets today to identify risky driving behaviors, improve safety, and reduce the time and costs associated with accidents. The platform's safety scorecard leverages InSight Alerts to trend driver behavior over time to positively impact safety and driver behavior trends.
Telogis Fleet is part of the Telogis platform of SaaS location intelligence solutions that includes Telogis Route, Telogis Progression and Telogis Mobile -- making Telogis the only company that provides fleet management, multi-vehicle route optimization and planning, work order management and mobile integration on a single enterprise platform.
"With Telogis Driver Scorecard, we're able to configure the scorecard to the needs of each fleet," says Sean McCormick, product manager, Telogis Fleet. "From standard metrics to configurable weightings, we're able to identify risky driving behavior. With the combination of Driver Scorecards, real-time alerts, and enterprise dashboards, Telogis enables companies to create better safe driving awareness programs and sustainable driving pattern changes, resulting in significantly improved safety."
Telogis Driver Scorecard reports on activities critical to driver safety: hard braking, hard acceleration, excessive speeding, speeding vs. posted speed limit, after-hours use, and seatbelt use. Reports are configurable to show daily, weekly and monthly trends. InSight Alerts can also be programmed for real-time feedback to supervisors. Being able to measure and ensure that your fleet exhibits safe driving behaviors is valuable for potential insurance discounts, as well as to reduce workers compensation claims (avoiding accidents by pinpointing safety concerns), and to improve vehicle maintenance.
"If you're simply monitoring driver violations, that doesn't tell the whole story because a driver may still be exhibiting risky behavior," says McCormick. "By implementing the Telogis Driver Scorecard, you can enhance your safety initiatives with real-time, actionable information leading to greater total safety along with a reduction in costs associated with bad driving."
