Vehicle tracking is a proven way of gaining visibility and control over a fleet, but this alone cannot overcome many of the safety, insurance, compliance and cost pressures faced by vehicle operators:
Having no context of what took place, so impossible to determine who was at fault and if there is a recurring driving issue that needs to be addressed.
Finding out too late that a collision has occurred, making it difficult to manage and mitigate third parties claim costs such as vehicle recovery, hire cars and repairs.
Dealing with the financial impact of rising insurance costs and bogus claims – there were 55,000 dishonest claims worth £629m detected in 2018 according to the ABI.
Investigating false complaints and fraudulent claims with a lack of evidence and conflicting witness statements.
Growing safety compliance requirements such as Direct Vision Standard (DVS), Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), CLOCS Standard, and Work Related Road Risk (WRRR).
Video telematics perfectly complements a traditional vehicle tracking system because it provides context that would not previously have been available.
By adding undisputable video evidence of collisions, near misses and harsh driving events to your system’s driver performance and reporting capabilities will create a complete view of fleet customers’ vehicle operations.
Video telematics technology, integrated with or working alongside a vehicle tracking system, can quickly establish the root cause of an event within moments of an incident happening. A driver swerving due poor driving by another road user or suddenly braking to avoid a pedestrian running out from behind a parked vehicle, would typically be logged as a harsh event. Only with video footage, can a fleet manager correctly identify if an incident was a positive driver action in response to an unexpected situation.
Video telematics can enhance your vehicle tracking offering, adding significant value and allowing your fleet customers to:
VisionTrack is the preferred video technology enabler for many of the world’s leading telematics providers.
In the UK alone, our multi award-winning IoT platform has been successfully integrated with over 90% of the top vehicle tracking systems.
