Clancy Group cuts at-fault collision claims by 20%

Construction business Clancy Group has reported an initial 20% reduction in the number of ‘at fault’ collision claims with the help of predictive modelling data from its Movolytics tracking solution.

The Movolytics system keeps track of risky driving behaviour, such as harsh braking, and scores each driver based on the frequency and severity of the incidents recorded

The firm deployed the technology in September 2016 across its fleet of 2,083 cars, vans and trucks to enable it to identify hazardous driving behaviour and address it in advance of any potential incidents.

The data is being used to identify drivers that are most likely to be involved in a collision in the future. These drivers are then put on a three-month driver development plan to tackle potentially dangerous driving behaviour before it actually takes place.

Ongoing analysis of data has shown the many benefits of the programme. Research on data from January 2017 to August 2017 found an initial 20% reduction in the number of ‘at fault’ collision claims, while a full year of data saw a 15% reduction in the number of all claims regardless of fault, bringing down the total costs involved with accident management by 13%.

Clancy Group also said its proactive stance on data usage is driving its CSR profile.

Chris Smith, CEO at Movolytics, said: “Many companies are content with simply using GPS tracking data to monitor the movements of their fleet on the map, even though the data could do so much more. That’s why we are excited to see forward-thinking businesses, such as Clancy Group, leverage the full potential of the data available to drive performance and optimise road safety for their drivers as well as the public.”
