Lower Fleet Risk with Driver Performance Telematics

Telematics typically is any integrated use of telecommunications and informatics, also known as ICT (Information and Communications Technology). It allows us to look at historical performance and predictive analytics. In this presentation participants will learn about telematics and its use in fleets, cars, buses etc to help drivers self-improve their driving (i.e. safe driving). With GreenRoad telematics, we will show how companies can realize significant savings because better drivers have fewer collision incidents, use less fuel and reduce vehicle emissions.
