CEI Previews DriverCare 5.0 at NAFA I&E

The CEI Group, Inc. (CEI) offered pre­views of Dri­ver­Care ™ 5.0, the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of its sig­na­ture online fleet dri­ver safe­ty and risk man­age­ment sys­tem, at the NAFA Fleet Man­age­ment Asso­ci­a­tion 2014 Insti­tute and Expo.

“The pri­ma­ry goals of Dri­ver­Care™ 5.0 are to make it eas­i­er, faster and more intu­itive for fleet and risk pro­fes­sion­al admin­is­tra­tors and  field man­agers to find the infor­ma­tion they’re look­ing for, and to make it effort­less to switch between CEI’s online fleet safe­ty and acci­dent man­age­ment sys­tems,” said Bri­an Kin­niry, CEI’s man­ag­er of risk and safe­ty ser­vices.

Among the enhance­ments in Dri­ver­Care ™5.0 are:

Dri­ver Score­card -  An entire­ly new page in Dri­ver­Care, the Dri­ver Score­card pro­vides a snap­shot, high-lev­el sum­ma­ry of all the kinds of infor­ma­tion in a driver’s record, and enables fleet admin­is­tra­tors to drill down into any cat­e­go­ry for more detailed infor­ma­tion.

“For exam­ple, the score­card might say a dri­ver has two acci­dents, has tak­en five online lessons and has two open items to com­plete,” Mr. Kin­niry explained.”Instead of see­ing all that detail on one page, or using a nav­i­ga­tion tool­bar to find it, a fleet admin­is­tra­tor can click on any item direct­ly on the score­card to get the details.”

Enhanced Man­age­ment Hier­ar­chy Access – A new fea­ture with Dri­ver­Care 5.0 is easy one-click access to fleet dri­ver risk infor­ma­tion at the lev­el of field man­agers.  One click by an admin­is­tra­tor or field man­ag­er brings up a page that sum­ma­rizes the risk lev­el of all of a manager’s direct reports, and shows a list of those dri­vers with key risk pro­file met­rics. Click­ing on any dri­ver in the list will bring up all detail in the driver’s file, includ­ing acci­dents, vio­la­tions, train­ing and open action items.

“The goal here is to help field man­agers take an active role in shap­ing their dri­vers’ on-road behav­ior, and to make it easy for the man­ag­er to assess his or her  group’s per­for­mance,” Mr. Kin­niry explained.

Sim­pli­fied Nav­i­ga­tion – Dri­ver­Care 5.0’s menu bars will be sup­ple­ment­ed by an “Apps” sec­tion at the bot­tom of each page.  The “Apps” will refer to dif­fer­ent core func­tions of the Dri­ver­Care sys­tem, like risk rat­ing, dri­ver His­to­ry and train­ing.  One click on an “App” icon brings up a menu that enables admin­is­tra­tors to zero in on the spe­cif­ic task or infor­ma­tion they’re look­ing for, and zoom to any lev­el, from the entire fleet to an indi­vid­ual dri­ver.

“In addi­tion to these enhance­ments, Dri­ver­Care 5.0 fea­tures new, bold­er and clean­er graph­ics to fur­ther improve its usabil­i­ty and the user expe­ri­ence, as well as to make it com­pat­i­ble with a wide vari­ety of devices” said Mr. Kin­niry

The new sys­tem is still in devel­op­ment, and will be made avail­able to all of CEI’s fleet safe­ty clients through­out the sec­ond half of 2014, Mr. Kin­niry said.
