GE Security Inc, a business of GE Enterprise Solutions; and Liberty Mutual Agency Markets, a strategic business unit of Liberty Mutual Group, announced national availability of Onboard Advisor fleet management technology.
Onboard Advisor monitors driving behavior of commercial vehicle operators in relation to conditions such as traffic flow and weather. Its proprietary technology assigns safety scores to drivers, allowing fleet managers to monitor and coach drivers on any aggressive driving patterns. Onboard Advisor combines GE Security's NavLogix GPS technology with data from an accelerometer to provide information on how a vehicle is responding to its driver. The information is then recorded along with the vehicle location and event time.
The Performance Advisor component measures how frequently and severely a driver speeds, brakes, and corners to calculate safety scores. Using Onboard Advisor, fleet managers can also replay driving events on Google street maps with second-by-second detail.
Onboard Advisor also provides the full range of more traditional GPS software features, allowing fleet managers to further minimize risk and costs. Real-time alerts can score drivers on fuel efficiency.
Customers who insure their fleets through Golden Eagle Insurance, Liberty Northwest, and Ohio Casualty can install Onboard Advisor and realize savings on their commercial auto premium of up to 15% in the first year and up to 40% based on fleet performance upon coverage renewal. Liberty Mutual Agency Markets plans to offer Onboard Advisor and its insurance discount component through its other regional companies soon.
Customers can generate further savings with Fuel Advisor, a fuel card that saves up to three cents off each gallon of gas while monitoring usage and preventing unauthorized purchases. Visit www.onboardadvisor.com or call 877-803-5338 for more information.
