CAPE PUTS DRIVER SAFETY FIRST WITH TELEMATICS DEAL
24 August 2016
Cape Industrial Services, a leading provider of critical industrial services to the energy sector, has turned to its incident management partner, FMG, to introduce driver behaviour telematics in a proactive move to improve driver safety for its van fleet.
With CSR and incident prevention high on Cape’s agenda, they selected FMG’s Ingenium Dynamics (ID) driver behaviour telemetry, due to its proven ability to optimise driver safety, reduce incident frequency and costs and ease fuel spend. An on-board ID device monitors the way in which a vehicle is being driven and translates journey data into a simple online dashboard, allowing Cape’s drivers and fleet managers to monitor both vehicle and driver performance.
Matthew Hammond, Fleet Manager at Cape said “Protecting the safety of our people is paramount and we’re confident that Ingenium Dynamics will help to reduce the frequency and severity of incidents by prompting our drivers to take responsibility for their own driving style. Then, when incidents do occur, not only can we rely on FMG to look after our drivers and get vehicles back on the road quickly, we’ll also have full visibility of all incident data via our own bespoke online portal.”
Ingenium Dynamics now forms a key component of the end-to-end incident management service FMG provides to Cape, which not only focusses on controlling the vehicle repair-and-return services, but also provides comprehensive post incident analysis and risk management recommendations, to prevent such incidents recurring.
Harvey Stead, Sales Director at FMG said, “FMG are leaders in incident prevention and our Ingenium Dynamics Driver behaviour telemetry is increasingly finding its way into the wider company vehicle market, with proven results. To ensure we deliver true value and sustainable benefits throughout the lifetime of this contract, FMG provides a fully supported service to Cape’s fleet managers and individual drivers and we look forward to delivering a flexible, safe and efficient fleet operation”.
