Friday 26th April 2013 - Sleafordian drivers join Elite

 

Sleafordian Coaches are proud to announce that we have five drivers which have gained GreenRoad's Fleet Elite status, thanks to their safe and fuel-efficient driving.

GreenRoad enables us to be able to see all our vehicles live on the road, wherever they may be in the world.
Each of our vehicles has the on board traffic light device, which has LEDs to notify the driver how well they are driving. It can be used to warn of any dangerous or inefficient manoeuvres caused from harsh braking and hard turning to vehicle idling.

 

An office website receives data from the on board device, which can then be used for instant analysis and management. Featuring GPS also means the system can be used for vehicle tracking, showing the exact location of any of our company vehicles fitted with the equipment via Google maps. The whereabouts of each bus or coach is refreshed every minute. Each driver is given a key fob, which is used to log into the device when the vehicle is started up. This allows the back office to identify the driver of any particular vehicle on the road at any given time.

 

Overall, the system is designed for better management of a safer fleet, to provide up to date real time information on the operation at the press of a key. We are currently piloting the opportunity for schools and their parents to track their particular trip. This enables the viewing of the vehicle/s on a trip through a website login managed by Sleafordian. This will provide reassurance and also easier streamlining of out of school hours collections for staff and parents
