HINTS FOR FLEET
See and hear everything
Have you considered installing dashboard cameras in your fleet?
Chances are you’ve heard of these increasing in popularity, or perhaps you’ve seen a video online of comedic dash cam footage. Wherever you’ve encountered them, we highly recommend investigating the options as they have proven invaluable to our clients.
A common set-up consists of one camera, which captures two views; the driver and the road out of the front windscreen. The camera captures high quality video and audio both during the day and at night. The footage is available to view in real-time on the desktop or mobile app.
Our set up allows for up to four cameras in the vehicle, offering the ability to monitor any part of the vehicle, internal and external. Some good examples include truck cargo doors, and the side of the vehicle which is particularly useful for delivery services and traffic management vehicles, especially in crowded city areas.
The purpose of the dash cam is to carefully record every detail that takes place, both on the road and inside the car, and it can be used for a variety of purposes:
- Understand road incidents involving the vehicle and/or driver
- Improve driver behaviour
- Prevent vehicle vandalism
Helpful Hint: When the vehicle goes into the Wi-Fi network it automatically uploads the footage to the network. The camera also holds a weeks’ worth of driving data, so if a vehicle doesn’t come back into Wi-Fi range frequently, the footage can be downloaded from the camera remotely.
NEW Feature Enhancement
This week we are excited to launch an enhancement to our system. It may seem small, but the benefits of this change are far reaching for our clients.
So, what’s new? Street numbers have been added to all events in the Fleet Management system.
Previously, not every event was captured which prevented tracking of all events. Now the capabilities have been extended, every event has an associated street number.
Not only this – but the address will now be on all live events during the trip as well, so you can see exactly what happens and where.
