Allianz and Lightfoot have renewed their partnership to continue incentivising drivers through the ‘Lightfoot Fleet Driver of the Week’ reward programme,.
Lightfoot’s technology combines real-time in-cab feedback with psychology and provides motivation through incentives designed to make roads safer.
Used in conjunction with or as an alternative to telematics, fleet managers can use information provided by the system to adjust driver behaviour and create an alert that some drivers may need further training.
Savings on fuel and maintenance costs can also be achieved through modifying driving behaviour.
The ‘Lightfoot Fleet Driver of the Week’ programme rewards better driving across customers’ fleets and prizes are awarded on a weekly basis.
Allianz Insurance’s head of motor insurance Jonathan Dye (pictured) said: “We are committed to using new technologies to help our customers and are delighted to be continuing the partnership.
“Driving safely and efficiently is a key aspect of fleet management and since partnering with Lightfoot in 2015, we have really seen the benefits of the product.
“Incentivising drivers is a really important part of the process because it increases their focus on improvement.”
Lightfoot’s sales director Martin Kadhim said: “At Lightfoot we are delighted to have Allianz supporting this initiative again.
“For the first time, it gives drivers the rewards and recognition they deserve for driving with a safer, smoother and more efficient style and that’s something we can all get behind.”
