Fleet Resolutions: Defining Focus for 2020
As companies look to improve safety measures for 2020 and beyond, much attention is being focused on fleet safety and driver behavior. To help define your resolutions and jumpstart the success of your program, Amerisure has developed a list of critical elements for a loss-reducing telematics program based on data from its FleetAlliance
The following are 10 best practices for new and established telematics program participants to consider.
The program should be administered at the senior officer or owner level.
There should be a designated telematics program manager who spends approximately 20 percent of working hours managing the program and analyzing the results.
Know your benchmark, determine a goal or objective, then regularly monitor data and make adjustments to achieve the objective.
Use benchmarks to determine three to five data categories to improve on. Additional data points can be included for later monitoring or measurement, but only a handful of metrics should be focused on at a time.
Over the course of the year, monitor all safety events to adapt to changing pace and results.
Fixed and maximum speeding should be the foremost focus of any new program.
Check telematics reports and results at least once per week.
Individual telematics reports and results are best communicated to employees in one-on-one discussions at least once per week.
Companywide results should be presented in departmental, divisional and company meetings either monthly or quarterly.
Organizations that have a discipline or incentives associated with their telematics program usually see behavioral changes more quickly.
Creating an effective telematics program can be challenging. Some of the most common challenges include initial installation issues (e.g. time, accuracy and coordination), and employee culture or willingness to buy in to the program. However, implementing Amerisure’s 10 best practices can alleviate some of these challenges — enabling you to reap the benefits of a successful telematics program in this new decade and beyond!
