Peak Performance has recently renewed its commercial relationship with Cranfield University’s Driving Research Group, a liaison which brought the Fleet Driver Risk Index (FDRI) product to the UK fleet market back in 2005.
Since that time many thousands of at-work drivers have taken part in the driving assessment programme resulting in fewer on-road incidents and associated costs for the companies.
“We recognise that a driver assessment tool like FDRI, that contains a strong psychometric element, is not for every customer,” says Peak Performance managing director Richard Hill, “but several of our larger, more risk-averse customers are opting for it and finding it gives a very detailed insight into their drivers’ propensity to take unnecessary risks whilst out on the road. We can then apply highly targeted training to mitigate that risk.
“We’re proud to have been selected as the only UK re-seller of this ground-breaking product and we’re working closely with Cranfield on an ongoing basis to refine and develop it further over the coming months and years. We have for instance recently incorporated a designated element aimed at managing grey fleet requirements”
Peak Performance customers will soon have the ability to book training online themselves at any time of the day or night. Peak Performance’s enhanced online customer interface will provide real time trainer availability, together with details on employees training history and assessment outcomes, within a couple of mouse clicks.
Customers will therefore be able to quickly and easily react to a training need by selecting their nearest suitably qualified trainer and complete the booking without needing to refer to Peak Performance’s Customer Service team.
Peak Performance has also recently updated and enhanced several of its existing courses and will soon be able to offer individual places for employees on most of its highly regarded ‘Better Driving’ workshops, rather than customers having to block book a workshop in its entirety.
