E.ON has seen a dramatic reduction in the levels of risk faced by its fleet drivers, thanks to an ongoing partnership with risk management solutions specialist Driving Monitor.
The two firms have been working together for the last five years to manage around 9,000 E.ON employees, including grey fleet drivers. Over this time, the tie-up with the Driving Monitor platform has seen levels of driver compliance reach up to 98% across the board while risk levels have dropped from 20% high risk, down to around 1% high risk.
Work undertaken has include the integration of the Trakm8 telematics data set for a more in-depth analysis of driver behaviour and the integration of manager one-to-one reviews. Now, with a lot of the day-to-day operational management in terms of driver risk having been taken care of, the administration needed for the programme is vastly reduced.
The work also includes checking E.ON’s grey fleet drivers, including ensuring their tax, insurance and MOT are checked by the Driving Monitor platform; previously the company had not had any level of visibility or compliance for employees driving their own vehicles on company business.
In addition, E.ON also decided in 2019 to move its on-road practical driver training to Driving Monitor, streamlining its entire driver risk programme including training into one system.
Jarrod Smith, senior contract manager at E.ON, said: “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.”
