Trimble (News - Alert), a technology solutions provider that makes mobile and field workers more productive, has released enhancements to GeoManager Driver Safety solution, taking the safety of drivers to a next level. Trimble announced this new release at Trimble Dimensions 2012, saying that new enhancements in GeoManager Driver Safety solution will enable the field service organizations to easily communicate and manage the external behaviors that influence the safety of the vehicle and driver.
Safety of drivers is a primary concern for any type of business having employees who primarily work on road. With this view, Trimble has extended its support to National safety Council earlier this year, raising awareness for ‘unsafe driving behavior.’
Trimble GeoManager Driver Safety is an advanced filed service solution that allows government and business organizations to better manage the behaviors that influence driving on road, by monitoring, identifying, and rewarding the well-performed drivers. At the same time, the technology solution can be deployed in identifying and coaching the drivers who put the organization at stake with poor driving behavior.
Driver Safety technology solution delivers accurate reports on rapid acceleration, hard braking, excessive speeding, and hard turns, often exhibited by the drivers. The reports can be then configured to use them on daily, weekly, or monthly basis, providing alerts that can be efficiently programmed to offer real-time feedback.
The new enhancements in GeoManager Driver Safety include improved driver scorecards and executive dashboard, new formats for reporting, and real time delivery of speeding alerts and idling, improving the visibility for risky driving patterns. The enhancements can inform multiple business stakeholders at the same time, from board of directors to human resources. Further, the technology solution allows recognition and addressing individual behaviors and trends.
Trimble Driver safety solutions help to improve the style of driving, reduce claim expenses and protect the safety image of the company. The key benefits of this advanced technology solution include:
· Measuring the scores for driver safety for comprehensive safety programs
· Recognizing and coaching the drivers who increase fleet risk disproportionately
· Increasing the scores for driver safety for comprehensive safety programs
· Offering authentic documentation and verification for accident claims, thus, disapproving false claims and lowering claim expenses
· Reduces wear and tear component of the vehicle, lowering the risks of mechanical issues and accidents
· Improving the customer’s perception and public image for the company’s safety habits
Driver safety is an important part of GeoManager’s portfolio of advanced solutions, which incorporate Work Management and Fleet Management.
Mark Forrest, general manager of Trimble Field Service Management said that comprehensive monitoring of driving safety enables an organization to mitigate risk by measuring and maintaining safe driving habits that can lead to lesser accidents and lower insurance rates. GeoManager Driver Safety, with advanced enhancements, can help organizations to improve their driving patterns, ensuring safety optimization while reducing liabilities.
