RSA, one of the largest UK commercial insurers, has launched smartphone app Smart Fleet for SMEs with fleets of up to 15 vehicles.
An optional extension to its existing Mini Fleet product, the new app aims to help businesses reduce fleet operating costs and empower them to take action to promote safer and more efficient driving, saving their business time and money.
Designed and operated in conjunction with Autonet Insurance and Trakglobal, driver performance is captured by a smartphone app using GPRS and location services, which is linked to a vehicle via Bluetooth.
This data is uploaded to a web-based portal which provides the business owner with visibility of their vehicle's usage, location, historical journeys and driver behaviour.
Matt Hodges, Mini Fleet product manager for RSA, said: “We know that fleet vehicles can be the lifeblood of an SME.
"With this in mind, we have developed the RSA Smart Fleet app to provide real-time information that allows them to take steps to control their fleet cost, reduce reputational risks associated with poor or dangerous driving, as well as showing a duty of care to their employees."
