Fleet managers their highest-risk drivers

Navman Wireless Driving Academy shows fleet managers their highest-risk drivers

Predictive analytics give new platform the tools for companies to reduce collisions, injuries, costs and liabilities

Auckland, 10 April 2014 – Navman Wireless today announced the launch of Navman Wireless Driving Academy. The new web-based, predictive analysis platform allows companies to pinpoint the most at-risk drivers and provide a specific training regime to suit each driver’s behaviour.

Navman Wireless Driving Academy is designed to help companies reduce collisions, injuries, costs and liabilities for fleets and create extra visibility in identifying the most at-risk drivers. The program’s Hazard Perception Evaluation allows fleet managers to identify risk in six core competency areas including:
1. Scanning

2. Space management

3. Knowledge of danger zones

4. Speed management

5. Awareness of other motorists

6. Attitude.

Once the evaluation is complete, drivers are then automatically assigned specific, targeted training modules to address deficiencies.
“The Navman Wireless Driving Academy training courseware has been developed by instructional designers who understand the ways adults learn most effectively,” said Chris L’Ecluse, Solutions Specialist at Navman Wireless. “People learn best in short 15-20 minute intervals, so we developed the training content with that in mind to ensure drivers get the most out of the sessions.”
The Navman Wireless Driving Academy Defensive Driver Training program provides trainees with a problem-proof-solution format followed by a comprehensive assessment. To maximise results, the program uses real-life video footage and a modular design that allows clients to build custom solutions. The key benefits include:
· A cost effective way to efficiently allocate fleet training budgets

· Ensures fleet managers are meeting their duty of care

· Provides accurate tracking and reporting to monitoring drivers’ risk levels and process through training modules

· Improves and modifies driver behaviour when it comes to fuel efficiency
