‘Database views’ functionality increasingly used for advanced fleet profiling
FleetWave is increasingly being used to help operations identify potential risks such as accidents, poor utilisation and more though enhanced vehicle and driver profiling.
The FleetWave ‘database views’ functionality enables businesses to pull their fleet data together into a consolidated view and create enhanced reports presenting the information in a more meaningful way – to help spot trends, risks and potential for improvement.
Paul Verkinderen, Vice-President (Europe & Africa), Chevin Fleet Solutions, explains:
“FleetWave can integrate into almost any third party application including telematics systems, training programs, accounting systems, driver licence databases and fuel systems.
“When these integrations are combined with FleetWave’s database views functionality, it offers a huge benefit to clients by enabling them to securely pull in information from both internal and external sources and quickly present the information in easy-to-read reports that can support decisions on improvement strategies.”
For example, one common use of lies in profiling drivers’ potential risk of being involved in accidents.
“With the true cost of an accident or incident often stretching many times beyond the initial cost of repair, minimising the chance of incidents occurring can help mitigate potentially substantial damage and fleet expenditure,” Paul detailed.
“We have a number of clients that have used FleetWave to compare driver information such as age, experience, accident rate or type, training, licence history, behaviour scores (telematics data), fuel economy, daily mileage and more, to help create risk profiles.
“We believe that it’s critical to have a policy in place to manage risk but even more important for that policy to be quickly and easily measurable. FleetWave enables that and can help support future benchmarking and improvement.”
