REDWOOD CITY, CA and LONDON – May 15, 2013 – GreenRoad, the leader in driver performance management, today announced new features including RFID-based driver identification; real-time email alerts; and an enhanced interface for GreenRoad Smartphone Edition.
GreenRoad’s new RFID feature automates driver association with trips by detecting when a driver boards a vehicle, eliminating the need for drivers to log on with a Dallas key.
One customer, Big Bus Tours, the largest operator of open-top sightseeing tours in the world, has starting using RFID in its fleet of open top tour buses in London, Washington DC and San Francisco, with Dubai and Abu Dhabi soon to follow. Gerry Price, group commercial director, said,
“GreenRoad has enhanced driver performance and cut risk in our bus fleet across the world, as well as improving the customer experience for thousands of sightseers. Now with RFID it is even easier for our drivers to use GreenRoad.”
GreenRoad Smartphone Edition has been enhanced with Facebook integration that allows drivers to share their achievements with friends. GreenRoad Smartphone Edition, code named “Asimov”, uses smartphone native functionality, including GPS and built-in accelerometers, to eliminate the need for a professionally installed telematics device in the vehicle.
A new version of GreenRoad Central, the software at the heart of the GreenRoad service, includes real-time alerts for exception events, including high-risk events in all driver behaviour categories as well as speed violations. In addition to receiving email alerts in real-time, managers can view their alerts on a To Do list through GreenRoad Central.
GreenRoad provides a single, comprehensive telematics solution to both change driver behaviour and manage fleet performance and efficiency. Its solution engages drivers directly for meaningful, lasting behaviour change. At the same time, fleet tracking, mapping and reporting help fleets optimise their daily and strategic operations. To GreenRoad customers this means increased safety and customer satisfaction and reduced operating costs for a clear competitive advantage.
