Driver performance and safety management provider GreenRoad has released a mobile app that it said will provide drivers with key performance data on their Apple iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices. The GreenRoad Central mobile app for drivers is now available for download from app stores.

“The app gives drivers an easy way to keep engaged with our GreenRoad program when they’re off the road. Our team finds it easy and convenient to use,” said Al Lacombe, director of safety and training at Dupre Logistics.

The app delivers data such as safety score, idling rate, team rank, and trip details for the past seven days. It also offers “quick tips” for drivers to help them self-correct and improve their driving.

Part of GreenRoad’s “Connected Fleet” concept, the app’s real-time data and insights is designed to maximize fuel efficiency and minimize risk.

“Mobility is a cornerstone of the Connected Fleet, and driver engagement is a cornerstone of the GreenRoad service. GreenRoad is committed to delivering its services in the most convenient way for drivers and managers, on their mobile devices,” said Karen White, vice president of product marketing at GreenRoad. “Through web-based services and mobile technologies, fleets are connecting managers and drivers in ways that dramatically improve efficiency, reduce the cost of information technology, and overcome some of the age-old challenges of managing a mobile workforce.”

GreenRoad has also upgraded its online management console, GreenRoad Central. According to the company, new functionality helps fleet operators more quickly gain insights into fleet driver performance and safety data so rapid analysis and adjustments can be made.

Examples of the new functionality include:

  • Saved Reports – now fleet managers can create and save custom report configurations saving time whenever reports are needed, daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly.
  • Simplified Look & Feel, and Navigation – icons and navigation menus have been refreshed and simplified for easier access to key data.
  •  Auto-Search – now a driver, team or vehicle dashboard can be found quickly and easily with new auto-search capability. Common searches can be saved in a customized dashboard favorites list.
  •  Performance Improvements—overall response times have been improved delivering fleet data faster and more conveniently.
