In this latest blog post, we are going to explore the 5 reasons why you should be using Crystal Ball’s integrated vehicle tracking 4G dash cams for your businesses fleet, whether your tracking vans, cars, lorries, trucks or HGVs, this solution offers advantages to all.
1. A Single Integrated System
Of course, one of the most important benefits to using a smart 4G dash cam is that it all operates on one system via the cloud. Both dash cam footage and vehicle tracking are recorded in real-time, providing live alerts and updates. Event footage can be viewed as soon as it has been recorded and as well as this, it can also be stored on an SD card for future purposes. You also unlock the wealth of features and benefits of vehicle tracking within a single fully integrated 4G dash cam solution!
2. Employee & Company Protection
The vehicle tracking technology within integrated 4G dash cams will enable you to know where your vehicle is 24/7 365 days a year, even if your vehicle is lost or stolen. However, extra protection is added with the dash cam. The dash cam footage will serve to protect both your employees and business, as recordings act as proof for claims, which can help settle insurance claims quicker and also cut costs on insurance. The dash cam footage also protects you from ‘crash-for-cash’ scams, as you have video proof of incidents.
3. Improve Driver behaviour
Not only do Crystal Ball’s integrated vehicle tracking 4G dash cams track KPI’s, such as speeding, acceleration, cornering, braking and idling, allowing you to assess your workforce’s driving practices, but with Driver ID it is easy to identify individual drivers’ performance precisely. This is beneficial as your business can incentivise good driving behaviour and provide training to address poor driving. Dash cam footage can also be recorded to an SD card, meaning that you can incorporate real footage from your drivers in training sessions, further enhancing your workforce’s skills.
4. Extend the Life of Your Vehicles
Having a fully integrated system means that you can easily identify and assess driver routes, video footage and behaviour to determine exactly which drivers are causing excessive wear and tear or damage. This, in conjunction with vehicle checklists, which enables drivers to complete a digital vehicle checklist and upload it to the cloud on a daily basis in real-time, will make it easy to identify maintenance issues or defects early. If faults are identified early, then repair costs will be cheaper, and it means that your vehicles are rarely out of use or break down, keeping them roadworthy!
5. Save On Costs
Over time, both tracked vehicle routes and your dash cam footage will collect plenty of route mapping data. Using data collected from your integrated 4G dash cams, you will be able to fully optimise and refine routes to improve fleet productivity, while also reducing fuel costs via improving driver performance. Working towards improving driver behaviour and utilising generated reports will also aid in saving costs, as your tracked drivers can be effectively trained and will be aware of how to efficiently drive to the standards of your company’s code of conduct.
