Driving Monitor helps E.On improve driver compliance

E.ON van

E.On has reached the highest levels of driver compliance, thanks to its use of the Driving Monitor platform.

Compliance rates were up to 98% across the board, and risk levels have dropped from 20% high risk, down to around 1% high risk, it says.

Driving Monitor has been working with E.On for the past five years, managing some 9,000 employees under its driver risk management programme.

During that time, successful projects undertaken include the integration of the Trakm8 telematics data set for a more in-depth analysis of driver behaviour and the integration of manager 1-2-1 reviews.

The project originally consisted of consolidating data sets and bringing the whole driver risk management under one central platform.

Now the system takes care of a lot of the day-to-day operational management in terms of driver risk, and the administration needed for the programme is vastly reduced, says Driving Monitor.

Employees who use their own vehicle for business, so-called grey fleet drivers, are also covered with their tax, insurance and MOT being checked by the platform. This was seen as an additional benefit at E.On.

Jarrod Smith, senior contract manager at E.On, said that Driving Monitor has continued to evolve the programme to ensure it maintains high levels of compliance.

“Alongside this, we also decided in 2019 to move our on-road practical driver training to Driving Monitor, which has streamlined our entire driver risk programme including training into the one system.

"The reporting tools and automation provided by the platform have reduced our internal workload, and we're looking forward to the new features and additional enhancements Driving Monitor are continuing to develop as we move forward into 2020."
