FLEET MANAGEMENT FAQ

The main objectives of VDMS (Vehicle & Driver Management Systems) are to increase vehicle safety, reduce the cost of your fleet and improve productivity of your vehicles and machinery.  A VDMS system is a small computer which is installed in each vehicle and records and transmits information about the vehicle and driver to a computer at the office base : 

> Unsuitable driving behaviour such as speeding, harsh breaking, dangerous or sudden turns,... 

> Fleet management information such as the location of vehicles; starting, stopping, resting, idling times; completed itineraries; unauthorized trips and stops. This information is then presented graphically via customised reports and dashboards to help you manage and optimize the utilisation of vehicles and drivers. 

At your office, you need a computer and an Internet connection. Our system is web-enabled so no need to download a software application.

We install each vehicle with a VDMS unit which we connect to the most reliable and cost-effective communication system available. In urban areas data is usually transmitted via the GSM/GPRS network; in remote locations we use radio and satellite communications networks. Various options can be added according to your needs e.g. connection to Tachograph, shock sensor, panic button, fuel meter, speed limiter...).
