The fast-growing use of telematics solutions is quickly transforming how companies approach fleet risk management. But as the popularity of these devices grows, so does the overload of data that they produce.
It’s estimated that by 2025, a single connected car will upload 25 gigabytes of data to the cloud per hour. That’s the same amount of data that’s generated from 10,000 emails. Now multiply this number across a fleet of hundreds or thousands of vehicles, and imagine how much data would be ingested in just an hour. A week. An entire year. Data for every hard brake, acceleration, tailgate and much more. It’s hard to wrap your head around, isn’t it?
And many companies don’t just rely on a single telematics solution. We must also consider the added layer of combining telematics data from multiple sources and devices (think sensors, cameras, etc.) and somehow making sense of it in a single reporting structure, commonly an Excel spreadsheet.
When it comes to leveraging these devices to inform their safety programs, companies may have access to a lot more data, but not nearly enough insight to maximize its true value.
How can companies ensure that they have an accurate understanding of their risk profile and that they’re taking the right actions to reduce risk across their entire driver population?
It starts with leveraging the right technology.
How Technology Is Transforming Telematics in Fleet Management
While some providers offer systems to help combine this overload of data, these solutions only provide one side of the coin. To establish the complete picture of risk across a fleet of drivers, additional sources beyond telematics must be considered.
By gaining access to existing motor vehicle record (MVR) and CSA data, companies can combine these critical data sources with their telematics data to establish a complete – and accurate – understanding of their risk profile.
SambaSafety’s innovative platform does just that.
