BlueArrow has integrated Geotab’s fleet-tracking platform with its marketplace of telematics solutions that helps businesses leverage data to better manage their fleet, increase productivity and efficiency and improve driver safety, the company said.
Businesses can tailor the information they receive to suit their specific requirements and goals. BlueArrow provides customized reports at no charge for every customer, according to the company.
“Emergency medical-services organizations would be a good example of how we listened to our customers regarding specific needs of their industry and then developed a custom database that no other telematics provider can match,” said Stuart Lamm, BlueArrow founder and president.
“We are constantly asking customers what is needed for their mobile workforce to be more efficient and we work hard to integrate these solutions within our Geotab platform. By reducing unsafe driver behaviors, improving vehicle maintenance and boosting productivity, BlueArrow is able to save customers thousands annually per vehicle.”
BlueArrow is able to help businesses and government customers look holistically at vehicles, assets and mobile workers from a single analytics-based platform, according to the company. Baker Roofing Co., one of the nation’s largest commercial and residential roofing contractors, has been working with BlueArrow Telematics for many years, implementing a host of solutions that help to better manage their fleet. Baker Roofing’s No. 1 priority is safety.
“Baker Roofing goes well-beyond what is typical for most companies,” Lamm said. “They monitor driver behaviors such as hard turns, harsh braking and seatbelt use. They employ technology that can eliminate driving distractions like texting/talking while driving. What is most impressive is the Driver Rewards Program designed to reward both management and drivers. From the CEO to the drivers, Baker Roofing Co. has certainly developed a culture that promotes safe driving.”
“Having our trucks on the road presents a daily safety challenge for our company. In many ways, this challenge exceeds that of putting our technicians on roofs,” explained Toby Boyles, Baker Roofing vice president. “Using BlueArrow’s fleet management solutions, we are doing our part to make the road a safe place for our employees and our community. We use real-time data to improve driver safety, track and reduce idling time, stop unauthorized vehicle use, plus improve fuel usage, which benefits our environment.”
