MiX Telematics, the global provider of vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions, and its subsidiary SafeDrive International (SDI) have opened a third Journey Management Center (JMC), which is in Dubai, and is similar to the model being developed in the United States. JMCs automate the journey planning and management process behind journeys and assist clients in reducing road crashes and losses associated with land transportation. Integral to this solution is the electronic planning and tracking application, "MiX SafeDrive", together with a state of the art 24/7 secure monitoring center.
MiX Telematic's Journey Management Center solution:
· Processes requests with subject matter experts who are removed from operational pressures
· Improves Driver Behavior Modification (DBM) processes
· Challenges the need for each journey to eliminate the chance of unnecessary journeys taking place, thereby reducing the risk
JMC subject matter experts help organizations identify unsafe driver trends, better allocate their resources and assist in the development of client-specific training packages that address areas of improvement. Recently, a JMC reduced a client’s automobile crash rate by up to 60 percent and realized a 95 percent reduction in costs associated with vehicle damage.
"We'll use the JMC in Dubai, as well as the other centers in the Middle East, as models for centers we're planning in North America," noted Brian McCoy, vice president of sales and marketing at MiX Telematics North America. "The Dubai JMC has allowed MiX to implement processes and solutions that help companies modify driver behavior, prevent crashes as well as increase safety and fuel efficiency. We're currently working with Safe Drive International to implement similar JMCs in the U.S. and Canada that will provide the same benefits for companies who operate fleet vehicles throughout North America."
Journeys are automatically monitored from the stages of planning through approval and dispatch; most importantly taking into consideration the vehicle and passengers’ safe arrival. Alerts are created if anything out of the ordinary occurs, allowing automated detection of incidents of non compliance with easy and targeted intervention.
The JMC is available on a subscription basis to any client with a vehicle fleet wishing to reduce crashes and improve fleet efficiencies. In addition to Journey Management, the modular framework of this solution also provides for additional support from In Vehicle Monitoring Systems to Defensive Driving and Consultancy Services should they be required.
