NG Bailey has upgraded its existing Tracker telematics system to include dashcams.
The engineering and services businesses has installed front and rear facing cameras in its 240 service vans, to complement its existing fleet and asset management solutions.
The firm expects to reduce accident levels and insurance costs, using the new technology.
NG Bailey first deployed Tracker telematics in 2019 to improve driver behaviour and reduce fleet and fuel inefficiencies. The solution addressed three key driving concerns affecting its business: rapid acceleration, harsh braking and speeding. With Tracker’s implementation, NG Bailey has seen enhanced driver safety leading to a 65% reduction in driver-related incidents.
Now, with Tracker’s dashcam technology in place, NG Bailey expects to see further reductions in accidents, fuel usage and equipment wear and tear leading to further cost reductions across its operations.
Pritesh Acharya, NG Bailey’s fleet manager, said: “Many of our drivers today display outstanding driver performance. In turn, these drivers are being rewarded for their efforts and we are benefiting from reduced insurance premiums, as well as spending considerably less on wear and tear maintenance.
“However, there is always room for improvement. We remain committed to ensuring we operate the best in market, duty of care tools to protect our drivers and other road users and are continually assessing the solutions available to us to achieve this. Tracker’s video intelligence means we can now benefit from an even greater understanding of what, where, how and why incidents occur, so that we can work even more closely with our drivers to mitigate future incidents.”
Tracker’s iOn fleet and asset management software, enables commercial fleet operators to track driver behaviour and vehicle usage, but also manage portable assets through a single interactive platform.
Mark Rose, managing director at Tracker, added: “We constantly strive to deliver technology solutions that help businesses meet their duty of care obligations and overcome many of the challenges they face when managing vehicle fleets today. Our dashcam video technology brings a new layer of visibility to help fleet operators like NG Bailey and their drivers become more aware of their day-to-day driving behaviour.”
