As a fleet manager, it’s up to you to do everything you can to ensure the safety of your drivers and the vehicles they are operating. This can be challenging, but technological advancements have made it easier to protect your fleet. One such technology is video telematics. However, with so many companies out there, how do you choose the best one?
Let’s take a look at some of the separating factors:
Multiple dash cam options according to your needs
A one-size-fits-all approach does not work when it comes to video telematics. Each fleet has unique requirements, and the dashboard camera selection should reflect that. The best video telematics companies will offer a variety of dash cameras that you can choose to suit your fleet’s specific needs.
Latest AI tech
Artificial Intelligence is rapidly advancing and new developments in AI are a game changer in video telematics. Advanced AI can help detect and prevent dangerous driving behavior and make identifying risks and hazardous road conditions easier. GPS Trackit’s VidFleet system uses industry-leading AI in connection with forward- and cab-facing cameras to give you both a clear picture and predictive warnings for potentially distracted driving.
Live video: Request video by date, time, or events
The ability to live-stream video is vital as it will allow you to respond quickly to any incidents or emergencies that may arise. If your video telematics company offers customizable alerts and the ability to request video by date, time, or events that will help to simplify your job.
Awards and recognition
Industry recognition from reputable sources provides a measure of trust and reliability that the company will provide the products and services they claim. Awards are often granted based on customer satisfaction, and as a potential customer, this is a critical measurement in assessing the reliability of the company.
You want your video telematics company to be there for you when you need them. Reviews, ratings, and reports from current and past customers can provide insight into the level of support provided. Some companies also offer special service care teams that can help resolve any issues you may encounter.
Your video telematics company should provide training to help you and your staff understand the full capabilities of the products you are using. The training should be provided free of charge and can be in the form of a knowledge base or scheduled training sessions.
Trust your video telematics company should have experience in the industry and a track record of providing reliable products and services. Are they well-established? Do they have many clients? What is their reputation in the industry?
Constant software updates and enhancement
Finally, technology is always advancing; a good video telematics company will continuously seek to improve its products and provide software updates to help maintain your fleet’s safety.
