Trimble Takes Driver Safety to the Next Level

November 06, 2012 - Press Release

LAS VEGAS - Trimble announced that it has released new enhancements to the Trimble GeoManager Driver Safety solution, allowing field service organizations to more easily manage and communicate behaviors that influence driver and vehicle safety. The latest enhancements include new report formats, an improved executive dashboard and driver scorecards, and real-time delivery of idling and speeding alerts, all increasing visibility into risky driving behavior. With the ability to inform multiple stakeholders within a business from human resources to the board of directors, Driver Safety allows both trends and individual behaviors to be recognized and addressed.

The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions 2012.

Trimble GeoManager Driver Safety is a field service solution that enables organizations to manage driving behaviors by identifying and rewarding good drivers, and recognizing and coaching drivers who put the company at risk.

Driver Safety provides reports on hard braking, rapid acceleration, hard turns and excessive speeding. These reports can be configured for daily, weekly and monthly use, and alerts can be programmed for real-time feedback.

"Monitoring driving safety allows organizations to help mitigate risk by measuring safe driving habits, which can result in fewer crashes and lower insurance rates," said Mark Forrest, general manager of Trimble Field Service Management. "With GeoManager Driver Safety, we¹re better able to configure the safety needs of a field service fleet. The latest enhancements, which include the Driver Safety¹s executive dashboard, driver scorecards and exception alerts, can allow companies to improve driving patterns and optimize safety while helping to reduce liability."

Driver Safety is part of the Trimble GeoManager portfolio of solutions, which includes Fleet Management and Work Management.
