GreenRoad announces new features to drive fuel efficiencies

GreenRoad has announced it has added new functionality to GreenRoad 360, incorporating customer feedback, extends GreenRoad’s ability to deliver significant fuel efficiencies and reductions in crash incidents for fleets, including bus, coach and van fleets.

The enhancements include posted speed performance, idling heat maps and extended data integration with new APIs.

“Speeding is a major contributor to fleet crash incidents and excessive speed can dramatically increase fuel consumption. Additionally, because speeding on city and residential streets is often riskier than speeding on motorways, managing posted speed performance is a key requirement for most fleets. Now, fleet drivers and management have a new level of safety protection and insight,” said Glenn Pereira, director of product marketing for GreenRoad.

“There is no ‘silver bullet’ when it comes to minimising driver risk, but used in conjunction with a number of other measures, the GreenRoad system is helping us to develop a comprehensive picture of where we have risks within our fleet,” said Brent Mitchell, Director of Operational Support, Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions, which uses GreenRoad 360 across its fleet of 1400 vehicles. “GreenRoad not only allows us to identify risks, but also protects our drivers when they are out on the road, providing a range of data to help us analyse incidents.”

“These new APIs enable a wide range of integration scenarios, including the use of GreenRoad data to power third party solutions and the automated delivery of GreenRoad generated data to customers’ business intelligence, and operational reporting systems,” continued Pereira.
