Features and Benefits

Online Reporting

Access our online portal anytime, anywhere 365 days a week 24/7. The portal provides real-time tracking of all your assets. You can select multiple user views across departments, have unlimited access to a full reporting suite, driver scorecard analysis, the full history of all trips made by your assets, geofencing exception reporting, vehicle health, and route optimisation.

Cost Savings

Telematics can help you generate cost savings by reducing your tax liability and operating costs (such as fuel, maintenance, insurance, etc.) and enable you to do more with fewer vehicles. Poor driver behaviour can lead to significant increases in your fleet costs. Telematics can save you on fuel costs as it analyses idling times versus driving time. Accidents and vehicle damage can be mitigated through correcting driver behaviour such as harsh braking, speeding, bad behaviour in general. You can also save on insurance premiums by preventing accidents. And, you can better utilise your fleet by understanding how many vehicles you need to meet business demand.

Safety

By monitoring how long a driver may have been behind the wheel, you can reduce the risk of accidents from driver fatigue, a significant contributor to road trauma by setting up audible alerts for speed and fatigue management. Prevent accidents and keep your drivers safe by monitoring and improving driver behaviour. You can track whether or not a seatbelt is engaged, and the time your drivers are spending on the road, setting up notifications to ensure they have frequent breaks. Analyse locations of near-miss accidents through harsh accelerator and decelerator trips replayed. You can also monitor their behaviour and look for improvements over time. Reports that are helpful include how frequently they speed, harsh braking, harsh accelerating, swerving, and overall safety driving score in comparison to safe driving versus dangerous driving.

Increase In Revenue

Utilise your vehicles to increase your revenue potential. You can do this by optimising routes for deliveries in a day, and matching capacity to demand, increasing client satisfaction, going to multiple meetings, reviewing your employees’ sales activity and visualising their client visit frequency.

Vehicle Utilisation

Underutilised vehicles are costing you money – maximising vehicle utilisation increases your revenue potential. Telematics enables you to identify which vehicles are being under and over utilised so you and your FMO can put the right practices in place to ensure proper utilisation.

Security

As your assets are being tracked in real-time, you’ll always know their whereabouts, including having the ability to view a trail of vehicle movement. Better still, you can enable anti-theft tracking alerts, system tamper alerts, and you can remote immobilisation shutdown when the vehicle is stationary.

Automated Fleet Management

Your entire fleet is tracked in real-time automatically, making the tedious simple, including Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) logs, managing your fleet will no longer be an onerous task.

Real-time Data Insights

Telematics is live, 24/7, 365 days a week and provides you with mobility data that is simple to understand on hand whenever you need. All your data is available for you through your dedicated client portal. It is highly secure and only available to your nominated employees. Data is hosted in Australia.

Environmental Benefits

Growing concerns from citizens and businesses alike about the impact they make on the environment make running a fleet as environmentally friendly as possible both good social and economic sense. Just by reducing vehicles idling time, you can increase fuel efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint. Harsh braking and accelerating and speeding are also contributors to excess fuel usage and can be easily reduced through driver behaviour improvements, thus reducing your impact on the environment.

Driver Incentive Programs

With 25% of company cars involved in an accident each year and as a result are the most common cause of work-related fatalities, injuries, and lost workdays in Australia, proactively approaching driver safety makes good sense. The Telematics system allows for many proactive initiatives such as driver incentive programs whereby good drivers are rewarded for good driver behaviour. Preventing accidents and workplace injuries is a much better approach then reactively dealing with them.

SOS Tracking and Man Down Pendants

If your employees are working alone, such as high-risk settings like remote healthcare, security services, and on, and you need to know they can be found if something goes wrong, you need SOS. SOS Tracking pinpoints the location via GPS and is powered by 4G. All your employees need to do is push a button, and you can have real-time situational awareness of where they are with a two-way audio option (note: this is an additional feature to Telematics).

Pool Vehicle Scheduling Tools

The online portal provides you with a function to schedule vehicle pooling, making it easy to see which of your vehicles are available and when and ensuring utilisation of unused assets.

Geo-Fencing

In some instances, fleet vehicles and assets need to be restricted to operate in specific areas. With Telematics, you can track and set up alerts for whether or not assets are within a specified geographic area.
