    Telematics launched to monitor driver safety

    By Jonathan Brown on May 20, 2016

    Telematics launched to monitor driver safety

    The Crown Commercial Service has launched a vehicle telematics agreement to help the public sector improve fleet safety and efficiency.

    This brand new agreement has been developed to help organisations manage their fleets more effectively by improving safety and efficiency through the use of telematics technology.

    Monitoring driver behaviour

    Telematics enable fleet managers to monitor things like fuel consumption, vehicle tracking and driver behaviour.

    This data can then be used to look at ways to make significant cost reductions based on the whole life cost of vehicles.

    The agreement was developed in conjunction with police, ambulance, local government and central government customers and features a range of suppliers, all of which are small and medium sized businesses.

    Driver safety

    The benefits of vehicle telematics for public sector organisations include the management of risk, driver safety (including two-way communication), work planning and vehicle usage.

    This can potentially lead to a reduction of insurance premiums and a better understanding of driver behaviour, which can help improve safety by identifying driver training needs.

    Through the realisation of these benefits, public sector organisations should be able to save £3 for every £1 invested.
