Knoxville, TN, April 20, 2012 — Spireon, the industry’s leading provider of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and business intelligence solutions used by organizations worldwide, is launching its’ new FleetLocate Joe Gibbs Driver Performance Program at the NAFA Expo in St. Louis, Missouri, April 22-23.
A co-branded program developed by Spireon’s FleetLocate team and Joe Gibbs Racing, the Driver Performance Program is a turnkey solution designed to improve driver behavior and performance through positive reinforcement, recognition, and contest-based incentives.
“FleetLocate’s Joe Gibbs Driver Performance Program is unlike any other system used to monitor and improve driver productivity and safety,” explains Steve Blair, Vice President and General Manager of FleetLocate, “the Driver Performance Program eliminates “ managing in the review mirror”, enables positive change, delivers improved driver behavior through real-time trending feedback, and provides positive reinforcement and coaching by Joe Gibbs, the former Super Bowl-winning coach of the Washington Redskins and current owner of a three-time NASCAR champion racing team.”
Designed for enterprise fleets, the Driver Performance Program promises to deliver a rapid return on investment. “Today’s enterprises are searching high and low across their organizations to find opportunities to save costs, improve operational performance and drive profits,” explains Blair. “The Driver Performance Program will have a substantial positive impact on these companies’ bottom line by curbing those driver behaviors that are costing them millions of dollars each year.”
As an example, Blair points out that FleetLocate’s clients have realized up to a 50% reduction in idle time as a direct result of improved driver performance and behavior.
The FleetLocate Joe Gibbs Driver Performance Program is the first and only solution on the market that influences improved driver behavior with a fun, engaging and positive incentive format. Individual drivers and teams of drivers compete for rewards and recognition during a competition “season”, and can view their stats, rankings and scores on their smartphones via an easy-to-read dashboard. Similarly, fleet managers also have complete access to a wealth of driver performance information.
The Driver Performance Program introduces a number of additional features that distinguish it from other products on the market designed to monitor driver behavior. The Driver Performance Program:
- Is a complete program that includes a mobile application, an incentive and awards package, and guidelines and support for implementation.
- Includes a library of animated driver performance tip videos from Coach Joe Gibbs.
- Provides constructive performance summaries directly to the driver so he or she can easily self-identify areas for improvement.
- Creates a relationship with the driver, promoting loyalty and employee satisfaction.
Attendees will have the opportunity to test out the Driver Performance Program at the NAFA Expo on April 22nd and 23rd. “We will also demo our new mobile app on Sunday, April 22nd at 3:00 pm in our FleetLocate booth,” says Blair. The demonstration of Fleet’s new Driver Performance Program will showcase the user-friendly, intuitive dashboard that provides snapshot views of:
- Scores, rankings and standings for any individual driver or team by week or by season
- Detailed pages for each driver with his or her individual performance information
- FleetLocate management reports detailing idle time, speeding, hard braking, rapid acceleration, fuel consumption, distance and other information by driver or team
At the end of a “season,” drivers and teams are rewarded not only for having the highest scores and standings, but also for making the most improvements. “This truly is the only race where the safest driver wins,” adds Blair, “Which also means a win for the companies that employ them.”
NAFA attendees are invited to stop by FleetLocate’s booth #1515 for a hands-on look at the new Driver Performance Program.
