Web watch: we review what's hot on the net

ANOTHER driver training website is reviewed here, but Peak Performance takes a different approach to reduceroadrisk.co.uk, which we looked at last week.

The expansive homepage includes elements of Flash and html. A large top menu will guide you easily throughout the site, with the ‘Services’ link taking you to five different sections of the site: training courses, online tools, events, safety products and the drivers handbook template.

Information on the different courses is available through peakperformance.net, including a ‘line manager workshop’ for training managers to control their drivers and a ‘behind the wheel – advanced driving course’ for ‘improving a driver’s driving skills, awareness of risk and management of the driving environment’.

Each course description includes key benefits for participants, as well as clients.

A nice feature was the column that appears throughout the site giving driving tips accompanied with a little animated logo.

The case studies section allows you to view abstracts from companies that have already invested in Peak Performance’s services.

One of the few interactive features on the site allows you try out a trial version of the ‘RoadRISK’ online driver risk assessment software.

Peakperformance.net says that by using the RoadRISK online software, companies can now establish a ‘risk rating’ for each driver. The online feature covers car, van and truck drivers and can identify those most at risk on the road. RoadRISK could also recognise drivers who would benefit from refresher training.

Compared to the vibrant layout of reduceroadrisk.co.uk, peakperformance.net adopts a more subtle approach. The result is less eye-catching, but its sheer simplicity makes it effective nonetheless.

The ability to book a course isn’t available. If you want to get more information about services from Peak Performance you can get in touch with it through the usual channels of phone, fax or email.
