Trimble updates FieldMaster mobile apps with Driver Safety Scorecard
FieldMaster is a core component of Trimble's Field Service Management integrated portfolio of solutions that includes fleet management, work management and driver safety.
The Driver Safety Scorecard enables organisations to mitigate road risk by providing remote workers with visibility into their driving performance. This allows drivers to make immediate adjustments to their driving behaviour.
The launch of the new FieldMaster Driver Safety Scorecard coincides with UN Global Road Safety Week 2015, 4-10 May. According to the latest Global Status Report on Road Safety, which was last published in 2013, more than 3,000 people worldwide are killed every day in road crashes, with 1.24 million annual deaths and 50 million serious injuries.
"Keeping employees safe while out on the road is a priority for many businesses and implementing a corporate safety programme is often a critical step in that process. The launch of our new Driver Safety Scorecard means businesses can implement these initiatives by using mobile technology that helps both the driver and the business identify risky driving behaviour," said John Cameron, general manager of Trimble's Field Service Management Division.
"Trimble technology already allows fleet managers to view individual safety scorecards. Adding a scorecard to our FieldMaster mobile apps puts that intelligence in the hands of the driver. This means they can make improvements to be a safer driver while the business can mitigate risk and reduce accidents."
