Frequently asked questions across the safety, tax and fleet optimisation services provided by FleetRisk.
The device, can I use it in any vehicle?
Most likely yes. We have used this device in fleets using cars up to 5-years old and there's been no issue. Some HGVs may need a converter, however these are inexpensive.
Is the device cumbersome?
No. Being made by a top flight US manufacturer the device is the smallest in its class with the most features and functionality. Once installed it is set and forget.
For pooled vehicles, how do I know who is driving?
We have a driver identification tag, it uses bluetooth to automatically identify drivers. So, the driver does not need to remember to swipe on or off.
Are technicians required for installation?
No. At FleetRisk we appreciate that in order to be practical and scaleable, a telematics system needs to be easy to install. FleetRisk’s hardware component requires no specialist training to install. Within 30 seconds the device is transmitting data that is captured by our online dashboard systems.
The simplicity of our install and our cloud-based software operational methodology means that geography is no barrier to us.
Surely it's not that easy?
It is! The images below illustrate a 7-year old installing the hardware device within 15 seconds (device plugged into the OBD2 port of a 2015 Volkswagen Polo).
How accurate is the data?
Very. We gather data in 1 second intervals and the accuracy of the GPS is around 3 metres. This counts so that we can defend our clients in a no fault crash with high fidelity data that evidences what really went on. In one instance we saved a client $8,000 on a claim made against them
Assessments: Are they user friendly?
Yes, they're user friendly. No computer literacy skills are required to undertake the assessments. Also, the assessments stay open for a period of 1-month. So an employee can re-take any one of the exercises if they feel that for whatever reason they can do better / underperformed.
Assessments: do we need to install software?
No, you don't need to install software.The system is in the cloud, meaning there is no software to install.
Assessments: where are they taken?
Being online, employees can access them from anywhere. Making the implementation of the driver assessment really easy.
