GPS Innovations is partnering with Data Solutions to integrate key speed and location data nation-wide, providing Fleet and Safety Managers with unprecedented access to safety information.
GPS Innovations is a leading Australian supplier of GPS fleet management technology. Its suite of driver safety products includes the RoadScout (a plug and play in vehicle monitoring system (IVMS)) and FleetConnect™, (a web-based advanced vehicle location software (AVL)). The posted speed limit database (PSLD) provides national speed limit data.
How it works
This dynamic partnering will see GPS Innovations’ FleetConnect™ software integrate data with the PSLD. All recorded vehicle data returned by the RoadScout IVMS through FleetConnect™ is validated against the PSLD to give a clear record of all overspeed events for each trip taken.
This unprecedented access to safety information associated with the movement and behaviour of fleet drivers will enable fleet managers to better manage and improve their overall fleet safety profile.
Posted speed limit data will be a standard feature in FleetConnect™ from 1 July 2014 and will be available to all existing and new GPS Innovations customers.
Stuart Mullins, CEO of GPS Innovations commented that ‘Many customers utilise FleetConnect to ensure their drivers are driving safely and to reduce overall fleet risk. Excessive speed increases the risk of accidents and presents a safety hazard to other drivers. By adding posted speed limit reports and alerts to our offering, fleet managers can now have even more insight into their drivers’ behaviour at their fingertips.’
‘This initiative has been tested across a number of fleets with great success for over 6 months and has already produced substantive driver behaviour change initiatives for development partners. This contribution to our driver scoring initiative, along with our more traditional metrics, will greatly assist Fleet Managers to work with their drivers to better manage their overall fleet safety profile.’
