For fleet operators today, it’s crucial to not only track your vehicles, but to have immediate access to secure information about your drivers and vehicles at all times. Safety Shield Fleet Management (SSW) is an end-to-end solution designed to give fleet operators the tools they need to sustain a high performing operation, one that’s operating at optimum levels of efficiency and safety.
SSM comprises an on-board computer, an online tracking and information portal as well as access to valuable fleet and driver reports and analytics. SSM includes mobile applications that allow fleet managers to remain connected to their fleet at all times.
How Does It Work?
SSM on-board computer collects and transmits fleet data including vehicle location, driver identity, driving events, collision warning events including video footage, fuel usage as well as distances travelled. Fleet managers then access this information and obtain key insights about the data through SSM’s online tracking and information portal. The solution’s global service delivery platform is underpinned by a world-class security model.
SSM provides secure 24-hour access to fleet data, while advanced reporting and analytics tools enable informed decisions to be taken for the overall improvement of a fleet’s performance. Data, reports and trends can be generated using reports and an analyser. Fleet information can be conveniently exported or sent as notifications via email, or even text messages, on a regular basis.
Manage your fleet
SSM’s purpose-designed mobile applications enable fleet managers on the move to keep tabs on their vehicles, drivers and other mobile assets while they are out and about.
The apps support various languages, and are available for iPad and a range of smartphones.
Mixed fleet with mixed needs?
Many fleet managers with mixed fleets need peace of mind without using multiple systems and services. The Safety Shield Management system provides the right on-board computer for all vehicles, light good vehicles, OBDII-equipped light goods, passenger vehicles, motorcycles and mobile plant
Regardless of which on-board computer they have fitted, fleet managers are assured of the same superior level of support across their fleets.
SSM affords customers access to vehicle and driver information anywhere, anytime. As a result, there are a host of benefits, all translating into increased profitability over time.
Reduced fuel and maintenance costs
SSM provides a range of reports to enable the monitoring of fuel consumption. However, the key to reducing fuel and maintenance costs is to improve driver behaviour. Vehicles that are driven well perform more efficiently and require less maintenance.
Improved driver safety
SMM provides customers with all the tools necessary to monitor, manage and improve driver behaviour. These include the in-cab displays as well as range of scoring and error reports. This combination is highly effective for safety improvement and risk reduction.
Servicing and licencing schedules can be managed efficiently through automated reminders. Reminders can be configured to trigger when the set distance, duration or engine hours have been reached.
Improved utilisation and efficiency
Getting the most from a fleet is the primary concern for any fleet manager. Knowing where vehicles are is only the beginning. SMM provides operators with activity timelines to illustrate utilisation patterns in their fleets. This assists in boosting efficiency.
A world-class Software-as-a-Service platform
Tracking -SSM(Safety Shield Management) provides customers with a real-time view of their assets current positions. They are also able to see whether an asset is moving or stationary and which driver is driving which vehicle. The innovative software platform displays other useful information such as speed, driving direction, ignition status, driving violations and a trail of where the asset has been. Tracking through the SSM system fully equips customers to efficiency and effectively manage their fleet, boosting performance levels.
Live information streams - SSM promotes proactive monitoring through live streams of information. These live information streams are user-defined and contain information about events and messages to and from assets and/or drivers. A stream can be ‘undocked’ and kept open, regardless of where the user navigates to in the application. Fleet managers derive great value from live information streams, as they enable real-time management and immediate action to be taken.
Reporting - A range of reporting and analytics tools are available through the SSM system. Fleet managers are able to analyse their fleet in detail, based on user-defined selections. Driver behaviour and fuel consumption, for example, can be effectively managed using the relevant reports. Reports available include assets movement reports, movements into and out of locations, driver scoring, event violations and cost analysis reports.
