Mobile Engagement Solutions for Fleet Management Deliver Improved Results

Leading fleet and mobile asset management solution provider, MiX Telematics, is set to strengthen its MiX Fleet Manager and MiX SafeDrive solutions with the addition of MyMiX, an innovative driver engagement platform which will allow users to run safer and more efficient fleet operations.

MyMiX will provide professional drivers with easy access, via the web or a mobile device, to important information about their performance, no matter which industry they operate in. Driver scoring is the first module available on MyMiX, which will also offer an engaging and user friendly interface accessible from both iOS and Android mobile devices.

"For successful fleet operators, it's no secret: engaged drivers means better business. MyMiX is yet another way we're helping our customers cultivate a culture of safer driving, which ultimately leads to more efficient fleet operations," said Catherine Lewis, Executive Vice President of Technology at MiX Telematics.

Drivers are one of the core components of a fleet operation and have a direct impact on the business, from fuel consumption and carbon emissions, to customer service and road safety. Therefore, getting drivers proactively involved in a continuous improvement process boosts accountability and delivers tangible business benefit, and mobility is an effective way of achieving this.

MyMiX will deliver daily and weekly scores to drivers, as well as reporting on trends over longer period of time. The app then allows drivers to see how they rank compared to averages across the business, while being able to view data and scores across all the vehicles they have used.

MyMiX was trialled by Cardiff Bus, a long-standing Welsh bus and coach customer in the UK. The trial demonstrated that giving drivers access to their performance data at their own convenience creates a positive balance between communicating important information without exerting too much pressure on employees.

"We're proud to further enhance our MiX Fleet Manager and MiX SafeDrive offerings, and feel confident in saying that tools like MyMiX are the way of the future for fleet operators who are serious about safety and efficiency," added Lewis.
