Protect your fleet with Start Inhibit

Prevent unwanted driving with a start inhibit that safely and effectively manages which drivers can operate particular vehicles. To start the vehicle, the driver must present their Driver ID.

There are three ways to manage this:

  1. Standard Driver ID – the Vehicle can start without tag, and the system registers the Driver ID to that trip.
  2. Start Inhibit with any Driver ID – The majority of our clients who utilise this functionality have it set up so that any Driver ID tag can start any fleet vehicle, and the drivers name will be logged.
  3. Start Inhibit with a Configured Driver ID – To add further security the Hardware can be configured to only allow a particular driver use of a particular vehicle.

You can set up the drivers in the Cartrack system by:

  • Going to List – Select Drivers – Vehicle Permissions – Edit Driver – Assign Tag (Driver ID).
  • Cartrack then sets permissions to the Hardware unit to assign particular Driver ID’s to assigned vehicles.
  • Start inhibit configured tag – this requires a change on the hardware itself. Ensure the groups of vehicles assigned to the driver is up to date to manage this effectively.

This feature requires specific Hardware in your fleet vehicles, get in touch to find out more.

Automate your Alerts

If you’re not using Alerts stop what you’re doing, grab a fresh cuppa and let me tell you about how Automated Alerts can improve your fleet management.

With Cartrack’s real-time, event-based tracking, you can set up location, geofence, speeding and driving behaviour notifications to be sent straight to your mobile phone.

  • Speeding Notifications: A vehicle travelling at 107kms per hour uses 20-25% more fuel than a vehicle travelling at 100kms per hours.
    • Use Alerts to highlight any event where a vehicle travels over the road speed limit. Customise it further to specify speeding events over a certain kms per hour, to target the occurrences in which you are notified about.
  • Harsh Driving Notifications: A vehicle which is subjected to harsh breaking, acceleration or cornering can require more frequent servicing and maintenance, costing the company more per vehicle in the long run.
  • Unscheduled Usage Alerts: Maintain worksite safety and ensure heavy machinery isn’t used out of hours.
  • Failure to Arrive on Time Alerts: Keep your customers and clients happy by immediately alerting them to any delays in service.
  • Worktime: particularly useful for Drivers on the road for long periods of time. Set an Alert after a certain number of hours for the Driver to stop and take a break.
