GreenRoad to exhibit at 2016 Brake Fleet Safety Conference
Visitors to the event at the St John’s Hotel in Solihull will be shown the advantages of the GreenRoad Mobile driver behaviour app, which acts as a ‘coach in the cab’, warning drivers when they stray from a safe, smooth driving style while also alerting fleet managers about risky driving.
Launched last year, the app works on a smartphone or tablet device and is ideally suited for fleets in which vehicles are leased, or owned by individual drivers, as no hard-wiring is required.
Dougie Portwood, director of strategic programme management, said: “GreenRoad Mobile brings all of the benefits of our successful hard-wired driver behaviour solution into a single app that is highly portable and easy to use on a mobile device.
“Mobile technology is fast outpacing hard-wired solutions and GreenRoad Mobile will make driver behaviour solutions more readily available to a wider range of fleets.
“Many van drivers, for instance, do not have professional driver training yet the even a minor accident can result in disruption to a business and damage to its reputation. A major accident can be ruinous.”
