Octo is using real-time driving data to improve the performance of vehicle fleets and reduce the chances of road collisions.

Using telematics technology, Octo has developed a solution to help fleet managers improve the driving behaviour of their entire fleet, and improve safety on the road. Telematics technology collects real-time driving information about fleets of vehicles using a combination of GPS and telecommunications systems.

Octo Fleet aims to maximise revenue and increase operational efficiencies for fleet managers by providing visibility into vehicle location, usage and mileage. The in-depth intelligence collected from individual vehicles also assesses driver behavior (such as idle time, braking, and cornering habits) that helps fleet managers adjust their workforces accordingly, promoting safety and reducing costs. Each year, commercial fleet drivers in the US cover 10,000 miles more than the average driver, so improving their driving behaviour and safety is of great concern.

Why you should care

As of 2014, there were more than 329 million commercial vehicles on the world’s roads. Many believe that companies have the responsibility of considering the welfare of their employees, as well as the potential dangers commercial fleets may pose. Using telematics for driving insurance products is one way to improve the performance and safety of fleets around the world.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Good health and well-being
Each year, 1.25 million people are killed and 50 million are injured on the world’s roads. Using telematics is one way to understand and improve driver behaviour to reduce incidents and casualties.

Decent work and economic growth
Octo Fleet collects information from millions of vehicles which can be analysed to show the major causes of incidents, and help fleet owners to reduce the risks and improve safety for their employees.
