wejo smart driving app launches fleet offering
The wejo fleet app is available to download to the users phone with Android and iOS systems. It uses GPS and commonly used mapping software to register journey data and can be used independently or in conjunction with a fixed device solution.
The app provides a mileage and journey history capture feature to help motorists keep track of business and personal mileage. It calculates an industry-standard driver score based on key data collected, as well as an overall rating for the fleet. It also gives drivers feedback on their driving to aid training and encourage safer driving.
Fleet managers can also gain access to risk management data. The software is designed to give information about the ‘health status’ of the fleet at a glance, including individual driver performance and collective data on the whole fleet. This data can be shared with other departments such as finance and HR for mileage claims and duty of care analysis.
In a survey conducted by wejo, 78% of fleet managers said that they considered duty of care to be very important. Furthermore, 76% of senior decision-makers said that employee responsiveness and decision-making had improved with the use of mobile solutions.
Speaking about the launch of the new system, Richard Barlow, wejo founder and chief executive, said: “We want to make large amounts of data readily available to fleet managers to help them to make better decisions. This is why we have decided to make this service completely free: we believe that everyone should be able to access, and benefit from, these insights.
"At the same time, this data will provide tangible benefits to drivers, helping them to enhance their performance. The overall improved efficiency will not only drive profitability but also ensure that businesses are adhering to key regulations.”
