New fleet management software incorporating telematics

A NEW fleet management system that uses telematics technology to track drivers will help companies meet their duty of care to business drivers, the makers claim.

The Amicus Fleet Management System, from 3Dis, combines the tracking technology with a new fleet management programme, which can be accessed online.

Benefits include automatic logging of business and private mileage and detailed reports on journey times and the total time a driver spends in the car on business.

A spokesman for 3Dis said: 'Companies will also be able to monitor average and peak speeds. By monitoring the information and controlling the operation of the fleet more closely, fleet decision-makers are creating safer workplaces and fulfilling their duty of care.

'This applies to any driver in a company car or any person in a personal vehicle driving on company business.'

Before a driver sets off, a key has to be pressed to register whether the journey is private of business mileage, which are then reported back to the fleet management system.

And in the event of an accident, the system will store the 16 seconds immediately prior to the incident.

Value added services can include help with directions, traffic information and breakdown recovery.
