Chevin customers using 'database views' function to manage risk

Chevin customers are using a new 'database view' function to help operations identify risks such as accidents, poor utilisation and more through enhanced vehicle and driver profiling.

The FleetWave ‘database views’ functionality enables businesses to pull their fleet data together into a consolidated view and create enhanced reports presenting the information in a more meaningful way – to help spot trends, risks and potential for improvement.

“FleetWave can integrate into almost any third party application including telematics systems, training programs, accounting systems, driver licence databases and fuel systems,” explained Ashley Sowerby, managing director, Chevin Fleet Solutions.

“When these integrations are combined with FleetWave’s database views functionality, it offers a huge benefit to clients by enabling them to securely pull in information from both internal and external sources and quickly present the information in easy-to-read reports that can support decisions on improvement strategies.”

For example, one common use lies in profiling drivers’ potential risk of being involved in accidents.

“With the true cost of an accident or incident often stretching many times beyond the initial cost of repair, minimising the chance of incidents occurring can help mitigate potentially substantial damage and fleet expenditure,” detailed Chevin operations director, Peter Ormsby.

“We have clients that have used FleetWave to compare driver information such as age, experience, accident rate or type, training, licence history, behaviour scores (telematics data), fuel economy, daily mileage and more, to help create risk profiles.

“We believe that it’s critical to have a policy in place to manage risk but even more important for that policy to be quickly and easily measurable. FleetWave enables that and can help support future benchmarking and improvement.”
