Driver Analytics & Retention
With two core components and algorithms designed based on real-world, industry experience, Driver Analytics is focused on ways you can limit driver turnover. Beginning with a scoring system, Driver Analytics identifies not only the drivers most likely to voluntarily leave a carrier in the next 28 days, but also why they are at risk – providing fleets the time needed to act and avoid a departure. Going one step further, the system is connected to a remediation platform in TruckMate that provides coaching opportunities that empower carriers with the knowledge they need to act on and prevent driver departure.
The system makes it easy to track, pay, and reconcile fuel purchases state by state. Configure it for local standards and practices. Pass dispatch trip information through PC*MILER, Rand McNally or ProMiles for state mileage breakdowns. Plus, the system supports odometer updates at state line crossings using in-cab mobile units and GPS tracking.
