Bristow and Sutor opts for Greenroad system
Published: 01 September, 2016
Debt recovery specialists Bristow and Sutor is fitting Greenroad’s driver behaviour and fleet management system to its 155-strong fleet of cars and vans.
The Redditch based company took the step to reduce its insurance premiums and fuel costs while improving the safety of its drivers, reducing accident risks and improving their carbon footprint.
Greenroad’s smartphone application will provide all 190 drivers with an effective in vehicle mentoring aid which offers real-time feedback through highly visible graphics and numerical information.
Each driver can see their trip data, safety score and other key performance metrics through the central mobile app. As well as receiving safety tips they can also participate in driver motivation and incentive programmes.
Andy Rose, Bristow & Sutor’s managing director said: ‘We had previously tracked our drivers via their mobile devices but this is the first time we have installed a telematics system across the fleet.
‘Following a successful trial we were confident that the Greenroad system was the right one for us.’
The system continuously monitors and analyses 150 separate vehicle movements, detecting events such as sudden acceleration, harsh braking and sharp cornering. Drivers are alerted to their risky behaviour in near-real time via an easy-to-use dashboard display, creating a powerful feedback loop that engages them in taking charge of their own improvement.
Exception-based alerts keep managers aware of emerging issues in real time. A web-based dashboard allows them to monitor the whereabouts and safety status of all vehicles at a glance. Insightful reports can be easily tailored to manager requirements.
