IAM Drive & Survive adds new online driver safety tool to product portfolio
“Virtual Risk Manager” (VRM) is a research-based online risk assessment, monitoring and improvement tool that has been designed by Interactive Driving Systems to enable companies to comply with their health and safety obligations for business drivers.
According to IAM Drive & Survive, the commercial training arm of the IAM, VRM provides savings of between 20 and 60% over three years by reducing incidents and collisions, leading to a reduction in insurance claims and staff compensation costs. It is also said to have a proven track record in improving drivers’ fuel efficiency.
Additionally, the VRM tool can also be used to store and update information including employee driving licence details, online driver risk assessment rating and information on all training taken.
IAM Drive & Survive chief executive Simon Best said: ‘Virtual Risk Manager is especially designed to help fleet managers improve safety and reduce costs. With VRM, IAM Drive & Survive provides fleets with assessment and training that is completely tailored to the company’s needs. It is an excellent low-cost tool that checks the driving risk of new employees and meets the training needs of existing staff.’
