Layering real-time contextual data (weather, road conditions, etc) on top of existing trips data can totally change how fleets measure driver safety and performance.

It’s only through giving the driver a personal relationship with the idea of a safer road that you can really change hearts and minds. He wants to share his vision, that every driver can be persuaded to take ownership of their safety record – through awareness and education. The key to getting this driver buy-in is showing the driver the right data points at the right time. And it’s not just about the tech – it’s about connecting with the driver and getting to the root of safety.
