Vehicle safety technology company Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS) has invested in the creation of a new software division – FleetClear – to deliver an all-in-one fleetwide, vehicle safety and fleet management solution.
FleetClear combines ISS vehicle safety hardware with cutting-edge fleet management software to create a single standardised system to manage, safeguard, monitor and track every aspect of a fleet’s operation. The system integrates with all ISS products and is applicable to every size, make and model of vehicle.
Heading up the new division is David Gladding, commercial director, FleetClear: ‘We use the latest software technologies to deliver real-time operational and safety data, combined with vehicle and driver information gained from multiple products, all on the same platform. The information can be accessed instantly via a single dashboard to help our customers manage their fleets more effectively.’
In addition to ensuring that vehicles are safe, compliant and roadworthy, FleetClear can help operators reduce their fuel and maintenance costs by recording, organising and analysing each driver’s behaviour, as well as pinpoint individual vehicle performance so that specific measures can be put in place to reduce costs.
The collection and analysis of accurate data about ‘near misses’ or incidents can also help with the development of more effective risk management and safety programs.
FleetClear assists with the administration of compliance processes and incorporates verification tools to help back up reports and provide evidence for incident investigations. It has also been designed to maximise speed and scalability to process large amounts of data at a much greater pace.
Mr Gladding added: ‘The amount of vehicle data available is vast and can cause systems to perform inconsistently. FleetClear uses “smart algorithms” to focus on the critical key performance indicators for efficient fleet management and only returns the exact data needed to make informed business decisions.’
The FleetClear division, which is located in new premises adjacent to ISS Head Office, is part of ISS’s growth plans following a major investment by Leeds-based YFM Equity Partners last year.
