Common driver frustrations centered on safety, health and nutrition, pay, and long hours with little sleep can add up and lead a driver to quit or perform at less than optimal levels. This can keep a fleet manager up at night, as managers risk losing quality talent and/or jeopardizing their fleet’s safety and productivity.
These are the reasons why fleets need a unified view of critical information on driver performance, the ability to analyze driver issues, and input remediation conversations that allow for searchable and documented driver communication. What if you could tell when and why a driver is frustrated? Data and analytics are at the heart of the solution that can help your fleet make drastic improvements to fleet safety and productivity, as well as keep drivers happy with effective remediation and full visualization of driver issues.
When fleets combine unstructured and structured driver data they can glean better insights into how aspects such as personal issues or service failures can affect driver outcomes. Omnitracs Driving Center is a useful tool for this that pulls together different data elements to provide a unified view of driver performance along with the ability to spot trends, analyze issues and document improvement efforts. If a fleet manager has uncovered a potential issue or is in the midst of dealing with one, static reports aren’t helpful to find the useful data. The Driving Center simplifies the process of finding the right data in a usable format and gives fleets a unified vision of driver information related to safety and compliance, and the ability to identify the most at-risk drivers and measure the impact of safety and coaching programs.
