Driver ID & Automatic Driver Assignment

Vehicle, driver and shift information is always associated with the correct driver.

Companies with multiple drivers using different vehicles on various days may have difficulty keeping track of who did what in which vehicle on what day. With Automatic Driver Assignment, vehicle, driver and shift information is always associated with the correct driver.

In the web based application assigning a driver to a vehicle has typically been a manual process performed by the dispatcher. With the Driver ID & Automatic Driver Assignment a designated key fob is used for each driver and a key fob reader is installed in each vehicle allowing drivers to quickly and easily login to a vehicle before each trip. This ensures that all driving information is associated with that driver so you always know which of your employees is behind the wheel of a specific vehicle.

Features & Benefits
The Automatic Driver Assignment removes the manual step of switching drivers from one vehicle to another and has it occur automatically when a driver gets into a vehicle simplifying the work of the dispatcher. The simple act of swiping the dedicated key fob against the key fob reader lets drivers quickly and easily check in and associate themselves with the vehicle that they are driving. No matter how many drivers or shifts operate in a vehicle the Driver ID provides management with accurate driver based reporting.

Reporting
The Driver Assignment History Report provides a full summary of all drivers’ assignment start and end times and can be run by Mobile, Fleet or Driver. Your other favorite Reports will soon be able to be generated by driver as well.

Can you help with Fuel Reduction?

With the changing fuel prices, it is imperative that you control the fuel consumption of your fleet. Mobile Fleet Solutions Tracking Solutions can help you with fuel reduction and have a fuel efficient fleet.Fuel Efficiency

Reduce idle time.
Eliminate inefficient fuel practices such as excessive speeding and idling by setting up real-time alerts. On average an idling vehicle burns between 1.6 and 2.4 gallons of gas per hour!!

Routing saves fuel.
Ensure your employees drive fewer miles, saving on fuel spend and consumption with routing.

Maintaining your vehicles maintenance for fuel efficiency.
Including changing oil, checking tire pressure and replacing air filters, a well maintained fleet uses less gas.

Driving behaviors effect the fuel efficiency of your fleet.
Negative driving behaviors such as aggressive driving, including speeding and rapid acceleration, decreases the fuel efficiency of your fleet. For every mile per hour a vehicle travels above 50 mph fuel consumption increases by one-and-one-halv (1 1/2) percent. A truck, which averages 10 mpg at 50 mph, will average 8.5 mpg at 60 mph.

Our platform gives users the option to track the amount of fuel within a vehicle. The information is visualized for every individual vehicle with the optional vehicle fuel panels. The panels are updated in real time as the device reports changes to fuel level.

ELDs are your friend. Why? Because they will actually help you save time, money and lives by letting you do the following:
