As more and more people find themselves working from home, installation services, such as those provided by cable companies and other home service providers, are working harder than ever. Additionally, due to the coronavirus outbreak, these companies, which normally rely on person-to-person interactions, are having to find solutions for fleet management from a distance.
Many installation and home service companies have already implemented telecommunication solutions as a way to interact with customers, but how are the managers of these fleets of installation vehicles conducting training and ensuring safety without direct interaction with their employees? The answer is a combination of telecommunication, Fleet Dash Cameras, and GPS Tracking Systems.
Remote Fleet Management with Fleet Dash Cameras
Live-feed Fleet Dash Cameras add safety by providing fleet managers with an in-the-moment feed of their drivers’ behaviors. They are able to see and hear everything going on in their drivers’ cab and on the road around them so that they can correct driving behaviors before an accident can ruin a company’s reputation or make them liable.
Another way these fleet cameras are keeping people safe is by providing a way for managers to monitor each driver without face-to-face interactions, which is essential to everyone’s health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. The live-feed fleet cameras, as part of Safety Track fleet management solutions, allow fleet managers and drivers to connect in real-time safely. The driver doesn’t have to make unsafe use of cellular phones or computing devices to communicate about routes and assignments, and the fleet manager can make immediate changes and decisions for their fleet without distracting them.
Safety Track GPS Tracking Systems Ensure Fleet Efficiency & Safety From a Distance
Fleet cameras with GPS tracking can be used to see driving habits, such as speeding or whether a driver is on route, and they show real-time information about how effectively and safely a fleet is operating. GPS Fleet Tracking Systems allow managers to monitor timing and help keep their installation and home services employees on schedule as they provide much-needed services.
Web-based Interface w/ Remote Playback, Live Streaming & Immediate Event Notifications
Safety Track’s Fleet Camera Systems offer the ability for live-streaming, which means fleet managers can view and record a live-feed, via wifi or 4G LTE networks, without having to interact in person with drivers in their fleet to retrieve the video from an SD card or other device. Thus, all of the hard-working installation and home services workers can operate entirely at a safe distance from others.
ADAS System for Fleet Application & Training
Another option for efficiently maintaining a safe distance and managing a fleet is to use the Safety Track ADAS System for Fleet Application. This system uses the Safety Track live streaming system to notify fleet managers when drivers are distracted. A camera faces the driver and focuses on their eyes. If any distraction events take place, such as smoking, texting, or taking their eyes off the road, an audible alert will be announced to the driver over the in-cab speaker, letting the driver know to stop the infraction. Also, a snapshot is taken of the event and sent to the server software and stored for reference later. This system is a great training tool that managers can use without being in the cab with their drivers.
