Opus partners with FMG for fleet-wide risk management solution
The collaboration provides Opus with a bespoke incident reduction programme for its multiple-driver vehicles, in order to optimise driver safety, prevent incident frequency and costs and reduce fuel spend.
The new contract includes the implementation of FMG’s Ingenium Dynamics driver behaviour telemetry and a suite of risk reduction services including driver licence checking, on-road driver training and online assessments; coupled with an end-to-end incident management service.
Derek Gibby, UK financial director for Opus, said: “Opus manage a fleet of vehicles in support of various public and private sector contracts. We were looking for a partner to help us to reduce our fleet costs in the best possible way, by preventing incidents from happening in the first place. FMG were the natural choice as their “prevention better than cure” strategy struck a chord with us.”
Harvey Stead, commercial director at FMG, added: “The diverse nature of Opus’ fleet enables us to demonstrate the ultimate level of flexibility FMG’s risk management programme allows. Whilst many risk products can appear similar from an operational perspective, the real differentiator with FMG’s solution is the way in which it lowers risk by assessing driver behaviour and providing feedback and assistance based on individual drivers’ characteristics, regardless of different drivers using the same vehicle.”
