A new programme has been launched that aims to collate every aspect of employees' driving and channel the data into a real-time risk record.
Achieve, by Fleet Service GB, collects information on eligibility to drive, crash history, vehicle maintenance record and motoring offences, along with statistics collected via telematics and other on-board vehicle technologies.
It is designed to provide managers with a single place to access live data without having to jump between several sources.
Based on Fleet Service GB's existing driver risk profiler, incorporating driver licence checking and driver training, it has been launched following pilot programmes with the firm's customers.
Head of sales Marcus Bray said: "Driver influenced costs are the single largest drain on a company's in-life fleet vehicle expenditure.
"Managing work-related road safety is critical to all businesses and key to that is compliance - but also disciplined driver performance.
"The uniqueness of Achieve is that it continuously records and measures both individual driver compliance and performance, via a points process, to compile a real-time driver history - taking into account all the key data to produce a 'drive safe, stay safe' employee mentality."
Achieve automatically produces notifications, prompts and reminders for required events; it will also note and score responses, and inform fleet managers of non-compliance to agreed management levels.
Drivers can access their scores and compliance record using the existing Fleet Service GB driver app.
Bray added: "Providing a dynamic visible profile on an individual driver basis of all aspects of work-related driving will bring about a culture change which permanently affects driving attitude and performance delivering health and safety compliance. As well as improved fleet operating efficiency with fewer 'lost' man hours, reduced 'bent metal' costs, and improved fuel economy due to drivers adopting a smoother driving style and increased customer satisfaction."
