A new management programme designed to improve driver safety and reduce costs has been launched by Fleet Service GB (FSGB).
The Achieve programme covers areas including driver management, crash management, maintenance management, management services and fleet service partnerships.
It is available in app form, allowing employers and drivers to communicate in real time with notifications, prompts, reminders, and alerts.
The driver app allows users to arrange SMR bookings, including tyres; to report an accident or breakdown, using GPS enabled location services which links directly to the Fleet Service GB Support Team; update mileages in real time; upload images, capturing accident and/or vehicle condition; access vehicle management options; and view a bespoke check sheet for vehicle condition reporting.
FSGB chairman Geoffrey Bray said: "The whole idea of managing the driver is not new. Having spent a lifetime involved in the fleet sector and witnessed the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter Act in 2007, there have been a number of attempts to address the issues faced. However, until now, nothing has quite got to the real heart of the matter.
"When the FSGB journey began, we sat down with a blank sheet of paper to create a fully integrated range of driver and vehicle management services designed to provide fleets with a management tool unlike anything available in the market.
"This dream is now a reality - our Achieve programme delivers, and in many cases exceeds, expectations presenting us with significant opportunities."
