If you make a chore into a game or a competition, doesn’t it get done more often? The concept is pretty simple but it can be applied to just about anything. This method is used by teachers, managers, executives, and businesses with their customers. When you provide incentives or make unpopular tasks into something that ends in a reward, it will get done more frequently because a little bit of fun has been added.
Cartasite is a fleet management system, among other things, that has taken this concept and applied it to driver safety and efficiency. There are tons of fleet management systems that use GPS tracking devices to map and score drivers. The downfall with many of these systems, however, is that the drivers can feel like they are being watched or micromanaged. It can be difficult to perform a job that you are capable of doing when you are constantly being monitored and rated on performance. When you’re managing a fleet of drivers that are vital to your business you want to keep them happy and healthy, not paranoid. Cartasite has come up with an amazing solution to this problem that still allows managers to track their drivers but instead turns the whole process into a friendly competition.
Cartasite’s ROVR tracking system will do many things for you at once. It will quickly improve the safety of your drivers while simultaneously providing feedback to you in the form of a scorecard for each driver. ROVR will also provide review reports and other analytic tools that will help you improve efficiency and troubleshoot when necessary. This system does so much more than just notify you of where your fleet is on a map, it provides active incentive for your drivers to do their job safely. Each fleet driver is rated on a scorecard for the week, with the highest score coinciding with the safest driving record. Before you realize it all of your drivers will be competing with one another for the best score, and as a manager you can provide certain rewards and incentives for the top scores. This means that very soon your drivers will all be reducing their risk-taking, which will then reduce the amount of wear and tear on the vehicle. Safer driving also leads commonly to better fuel efficiency and over 55% fewer crashes. Safe and efficient driving is the best thing that you could ask for from your fleet, and this will be pretty much guaranteed to come along with your fleet management when you choose to use the ROVR system from Cartasite.
The classic incentive method might seem like it’s meant for children, but it really is effective at all levels of life. Whether you are a kindergarten teacher or a manager of a fleet of 250, using competition and incentives to get good performance is a useful tactic. And at any age or occupation, people like to use competition throughout the day to finish the things that they don’t always enjoy doing. ROVR fleet management can do all of this for you.
