Using inthinc's award-winning tiwiPro technology, service fleets are able to fuel usage, view GPS-based trip details and provide their drivers with real-time, in-cab coaching and alerts for speeding, seat belt use, excessive idling and other driving behaviors.
A partner of PestSure, a nation-wide pest control insurance association, inthinc has worked specifically with fleet safety experts to provide the best solution for vehicle monitoring, fuel tracking and driver behavior mentoring. The inthinc solution has proven to reduce fleet speeding by 86 percent and lower accident rates by as much as 90 percent. inthinc's proven success is the reason PestSure now offers subsidizing benefits for member companies that choose to install the inthinc tiwiPro in their fleets.
"At PestSure we are committed to helping our insured members reach the highest level of fleet safety and loss prevention," Linda Midyett, Safety and Loss Prevention Manager at PestSure, said. "We believe the tiwiPro is a great solution to coach driving behavior and improve overall fleet safety, which is why we continue to subsidize the solution for our members. Fewer accidents, damages, and/or claims results in a win for the member company and the PestSure organization."
With inthinc, fleet managers have real-time insight into fleet activity and performance through the inthinc.com management portal. Using integrated GPS tracking and telematics capabilities, fleet managers will be able to see where each vehicle is located, where drivers stopped, the duration of their stop and how long it takes each driver to get from one location to another throughout the entire route. This allows managers to respond quickly to emergencies in a timely manner. The portal also shows any safety alerts during the route such as speeding, hard braking or other risky driving behavior.
"Service companies need a solution that fits the unique needs of their industry in terms of fleet accessibility and vehicle maintenance," said Pete Allen, Senior Vice President of Sales at inthinc. "We are proud to support driver safety initiatives and work with companies to increase fuel efficiency and contribute to further reducing other fleet operational costs."
