ADDITION: GreenRoad solution extended
GreenRoad are adding fuel management and vehicle health to their award-winning driver behaviour and safety solution.
The addition is designed to further refine GreenRoad’s system, which already incorporates idling management, advanced GPS tracking and best-in-class driver behaviour and safety.
Fleet managers can closely predict and avoid expensive malfunctions and service disruptions with the new vehicle health module.
The module provides real-time, remote visibility into critical indicators, such as oil pressure, engine temperature and battery voltage.
Meanwhile, GreenRoad’s fuel management module tracks and reports fuel consumption and miles per gallon, complementing their approach to improving fuel economy and emissions reduction by changing driver behaviour.
Both modules leverage the management tools in GreenRoad’s web console, including real-time alerts, an automated to do list, intuitive dashboards, clickable drill-downs, trend analytics and configurable reports.
Vehicle health alerts are also highlighted on a simulated dashboard for each vehicle and on the live fleet location map.
John Dimmer, UK Programme Manager at GreenRoad, said: “The GreenRoad difference has always been that we make it easy for drivers and fleet managers to translate data into action.
“By integrating new data sources into our management console, we’re extending this to a broader set of operations.
“Data analysis, effective communication and best practices make GreenRoad fleets the safest and most fuel-efficient on the road.”
Transdev, one of the largest public transport operators in Europe, will be deploying the vehicle health function by the end of 2013.
Mike Mullins, Technical Director at Transdev, said: “GreenRoad has truly grasped the importance of effectively communicating vital data about driving and vehicles.
“Vehicle health will be critical as we better manage our fleet of vehicles to reduce maintenance costs.
“Combined with our use of GreenRoad driver behaviour to cut risk and reduce fuel consumption, the result is improved passenger satisfaction and major savings in operational expenses.”
