We love our Drivers!
We’re here to protect and support the “heroes of the road.” That’s why SmartDrive focuses on helping drivers hone their driving skills. Drivers can see immediate improvements and get recognised for good driving skills.
Unique in its approach, SmartDrive uses a comprehensive programme to educate and engage drivers at each milestone, from Instant Driver Feedback lights for real-time feedback to coaching reports for more effective reviews. SmartDrive provides the tools to identify, review and coach the individual driver’s performance with objective, accurate insights.
Protecting and exonerating
With the most accurate, advanced event recorder on the market, drivers are protected by having the right video and vehicle data, which helps exonerate fraudulent claims. Over 80% of our videos are used to exonerate the driver.
Improving driving skills
Using “game films,” similar to how they are used by sports teams and athletes, drivers can review and learn how to improve their driving skills, whether they’re a seasoned veteran or a rookie.
Saving the planet
As companies go green, more and more drivers are adopting eco-driving skills to help reduce carbon emissions and fuel waste. By improving their skills, drivers can be a part of a greater cause and help save fuel costs as well.
Debunking the myths
We understand that some drivers don’t immediately see the benefits of our programme. Let’s address some of their questions head on.
Is SmartDrive used for disciplinary purposes only?
The SmartDrive programme promotes driver protection and exoneration, as well as positive feedback and driving skills development. Drivers’ tools, like our SmartDrive fuel efficiency application, help drivers get engaged and recognised for good driving. It also protects drivers– over 80% of our videos are used for exoneration, the remainder for coaching and skills training.
Are the event recorders recording all the time?
The SmartRecorder records when triggered by driving manoeuvres out of the ordinary, such as hard braking or swerves. Because it records before and after the triggered event, the cause of the incident is revealed, which is often not the driver’s fault. Only five minutes of video per week per driver are typically recorded.
“We tied SmartDrive to an incentive scheme whereby helping us reduce collisions would also help our drivers. A bonus was paid quarterly to any driver that had an accident free period, where it could be shown that they were not to blame.”
General Manager, West Horsley Dairy
