DriveCam Launches Managed Services to Mitigate Fleet Risk
– DriveCam, Inc. has launched Managed Services, providing ongoing management of risky driving behaviors for commercial and government fleets.
The new Managed Services, which require no upfront investment, include in-vehicle video, playback software, and analysis to identify and eliminate behaviors that are known to increase the likelihood of a collision, all for a single per-vehicle monthly fee. By providing turnkey implementation and event analysis, DriveCam Managed Services enables fleets to reap the benefits in reduced damage claims from improved driving behavior.
DriveCam Managed Services include wireless download, review, and analysis of driving events captured by the DriveCam video event recorder installed in each fleet vehicle. At the DriveCam Review Center, professionals trained in best practices for driver behavior analysis review daily driving events triggered by risky driving or collisions. Reviewers provide detailed reports to fleet supervisors on areas for driver improvement and coaching. This approach ensures that risky behaviors are quickly identified and improved, resulting in fewer incidents and lower damage and claims.
“Consistent driver feedback is the answer to lowering fleet operating costs and improving safety,” said Bruce Moeller, DriveCam president and CEO. “With the introduction of Managed Services, our goal is to make it easy for fleets to immediately secure the bottom line benefits of improved driving behavior.”
“The reviewers at DriveCam have the expertise in driving behavior to recognize problems, identify root cause, and provide guidelines for driver counseling,” said Julie Gasper, director of risk management for McBride Electric. “Our drivers respond better with objective feedback. The reports provided by DriveCam give me the ability to quickly evaluate the program at different locations and gauge the effectiveness. We have been using DriveCam Managed Services for several months and have significantly reduced both the frequency and severity of incidents.”
DriveCam Managed Services are recommended for fleets with greater than 30 vehicles. For a monthly per-vehicle fee, it includes complete and ongoing event review, all available hardware and software upgrades, wireless or wired DriveCam event recorder, and five-year contract. For clients that have an in-house professional fleet safety staff to download, review, and analyze events, DriveCam offers an Enterprise Edition. Customers have the flexibility to switch between service levels at any time, depending on the needs of their organization.
