GreenRoad, specialist in driver behaviour management, has added fuel management and vehicle health to its award-winning driver behaviour and safety solution. The new features round out GreenRoad’s comprehensive suite for fleet productivity, which includes idling management and advanced GPS tracking as well as best-in-class driver behaviour and safety.
The vehicle health module helps managers predict and avoid expensive malfunctions and service disruptions by providing real-time, remote visibility into critical indicators, such as oil pressure, engine temperature and battery voltage. The fuel module tracks and reports fuel consumption and miles per gallon, complementing GreenRoad’s proven approach to improving fuel economy and emissions reduction by changing driver behaviour.
Both modules leverage the powerful, easy-to-use exception management tools in GreenRoad’s web console, including real-time alerts, an automated to do list, intuitive dashboards, clickable drill-downs, trend analytics and configurable reports. Vehicle health alerts are also highlighted on a simulated dashboard for each vehicle and on the live fleet location map, giving managers complete information about their fleet’s status at a glance.
Transdev, one of the largest public transport operators in Europe, will be deploying the vehicle health function by the end of 2013. According to Mike Mullins, technical director at Transdev, "GreenRoad has truly grasped the importance of effectively communicating vital data about driving and vehicles. Vehicle health will be critical as we better manage our fleet of vehicles to reduce maintenance costs. Combined with our use of GreenRoad driver behaviour to cut risk and reduce fuel consumption, the result is improved passenger satisfaction and major savings in operational expenses."
"The GreenRoad difference has always been that we make it easy for drivers and fleet managers to translate data into action," said John Dimmer, UK Programme manager. "By integrating new data sources into our management console, we’re extending this to a broader set of operations. Data analysis, effective communication and best practices make GreenRoad fleets the safest and most fuel-efficient on the road."
