Changing Behavior Using “Closed Loop” Telematics-Based Strategies

Originally aired: Tuesday, August 22, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

For 20 years, eDriving® and Virtual Risk Manager® (VRM) have worked with Fortune 500 global leaders to implement closed loop risk management programs involving the creation of safety-driven cultural processes; collection and analysis of driver performance data; manager-led coaching; and the provision of risk reduction training. VRM’s patented methodology* has been validated with numerous large-scale research studies and used successfully by over 1 million drivers in over 90 countries and 40 languages.

New telematics and micro learning technologies present an incredible opportunity to evolve closed loop learning strategies and apply this proven approach to change even the most challenging and threatening habits among your drivers.

This webinar will arm you with compelling research and experiential client data to support the case for a closed loop risk reduction strategy, and will provide ideas for how to permanently break your drivers of destructive behaviors using a combination of policy, leadership, behavior-based telematics, targeted micro learning and coaching strategies.

What you’ll learn:

  • What is a closed loop risk reduction strategy?

  • How closed loop learning has reduced collisions up to 67% and TCO by 20-40%

  • How telematics can augment data collection and analytics programs already in place

  • How live and virtual coaching comprise critical components of closed loop learning

  • How micro learning can revolutionize the impact of training upon your drivers

  • How to bring all these elements together in one cohesive strategy focused on ensuring your drivers get home to their loved ones and communities at the end of each work day.

4 ELD Myths and What You Should Know About Bundled Solutions

Originally aired: Thursday, June 22, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

With any new, complicated set of regulations there can be plenty of confusion. In the case of how fleets need to implement electronic logging devices (ELDs) to be in compliance with the ELD mandate, myths abound — and need dispelling:

  • Myth #1: Every ELD Vendor Who Is Certified Is Really Certified
  • Myth #2: Device Registration = Verification
  • Myth #3: If I Purchase a Non-Compliant Device from a Provider, They Will Replace it — No Sweat!
  • Myth #4: I’ll Wait ‘Til November to Find A Solution. I Have Plenty of Time — and How Hard Can it Be?

Adding to the complication is considering the option of a bundled ELD/GPS tracking solution. But bundling has a number of advantages, among them the ability to have all driver and vehicle data provided in a single platform, giving added transparency to the fleet manager and drivers.

Join us for this webinar and learn how a bundled solution can help you seamlessly comply with the regulations, and give you a deeper insight into your fleet operations in a single, integrated data stream — improving operations, reporting, and the bottom line.

A Fleet Manager’s Guide to Payment Networks

Originally aired: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

This can lead to more security, better control over fuel expenditures, and efficient management of expenses. The differences between open loop and closed loop networks will be reviewed, as well as more detail about how they process transactions differently. Learn more about the benefits of fleet card networks, and how you can leverage them to improve efficiency and gain benefits for your organization.
