14 Great Reasons To Get Your Fleet Connected
Upgrading your Video Telematics with a SIM card and getting connected will save you time and money in many ways. You can gain access to VUEhub which includes our full suite of software solutions to manage your fleet more efficiently and help strengthen your relationship with your insurer.
Those are just a few benefits you’ll experience when you connect your fleet. For the full picture, here are 14 great reasons to get your fleet connected…
1. Save Time With Remote Access
When you need footage, chasing a vehicle to retrieve a hard drive or SD card takes time. With connected Video Telematics, your vehicles don’t need to stop. When the ignition is on, video can be downloaded within seconds.
No more waiting vehicles or abandoned journeys that cost you money and time.
2. Download Video From Any Time Or Location
Video can be requested from the time or location of an incident within seconds. If there is an incident, the location might be more accurately remembered than the precise time.
Quickly find the data you need to help you understand what happened and who was at fault so you can take steps to protect your drivers and start the claims handling process immediately.
3. Protect Against Losing Video Telematics Evidence
Remote access removes the risk of overwriting important footage. As devices record on a loop, being connected helps you retrieve important footage quickly before it’s overwritten.
4. Monitor The Vehicle In Real-Time
Stream live video telematics from any connected vehicle. With multiple cameras fitted to a vehicle (e.g. driver camera, forward-facing, rear, sides), you can get a complete live 360° view in and around your vehicle.
If a driver is having problems delivering you can help locate them and see what they can see.
You can also monitor the environment that your drivers are navigating (such as wet or foggy roads).

5. Monitor Your Drivers In Real-Time
You can monitor driver behaviour live, which helps you monitor any new drivers or drivers with poor behaviour. Your drivers are also more likely to behave better when they know they can be monitored.
As drivers are your company representatives, you can monitor deliveries live to see that drivers are working safely and courteously.
6. Improve Driver Behaviour
Our driver behaviour league table rates all of your drivers with a 1-4 star rating. Reward good drivers and give driver feedback to improve behaviour and decrease accident frequency.
Make your driver training even more engaging and personalised by combining driver behaviour league tables with video footage of accidents or near misses.
7. Improve Customer Care
In just a few clicks you can share a vehicle’s location with a third party so they can track where your vehicle is. This is great for a customer waiting on a delivery, or for a recovery vehicle locating your vehicles.
8. Instant Incident Notifications
You receive an instant FNOL (First Notification of Loss) alert after an accident, so you can help your drivers and start to manage the situation quickly. Easily understand what happened with video footage and telematics data like break and indicator activity and speed.
Video can then be sent into VUEcloud, then securely shared with colleagues and third parties such as claims teams.
9. Full Reporting, Including A Driver Behaviour League Table
Set up alerts for what’s important to you. You can receive alerts either on-screen in VUEconnected or via e-mail or SMS text, for anything from out-of-hours use, speeding, unauthorised drivers, power failure and idling through to entering or leaving an area (such as a site or the congestion zone).
Get reports such as Vehicle Trip Summaries which show the trip count and mileage of individual vehicles. Monitor the overall performance of your fleet and see how performance can be improved for increased efficiency and a safer fleet.

14. Build An Even Stronger Relationship With Your Insurer
Assist the claims handling process by instantly sending incident footage and relevant details to a claims team via VUEcloud.
Understand how driver behaviour can be improved, view telematics data in context (with information such as road type, road conditions and highway code infractions) and identify hot spots in your fleet where risk can be reduced to build stronger relationships with your insurer and risk partners.
