Chermark claims that Smart Fleet provides benefits such as real-time visibility and reporting, improved productivity and customer service, reduced fuel costs, preventative maintenance, as well as extended idle alerts.
“Our customers report that our products give the security of knowing where vehicles are at all times and help save money on gas by creating alerts to help curb idling,” says Chermark.
A new feature allows drivers to view their Driver Reward scorecard on their phones and the points they have received for avoiding speeding, idling, hard braking or sudden acceleration, and compare how they rank compared to colleagues. They can then redeem the points for gift cards to Amazon, Walmart, Starbucks.
The product also emphasizes safety.
"Safety has a huge impact on the success of a company. We have found that when companies reduce accidents, their insurance rates go down, and productivity increases," he says. "A safety incentive program helps reduces losses organizations experience from accidents and is especially critical in a time like this."
