But the benefits don’t stop there. Have a read of our top 5 reasons why you should be investing today…
1. Protect your drivers with indisputable evidence
According to Aviva, they have seen a 9.5% yearly increase in the number of fraudulent claims in recent years.
With industry figures showing 1 in 10 personal injury claims are linked to suspected crash-for-cash schemes, it is important to have evidence.
In-vehicle cameras or “dashcams” not only deter fraudsters but also provides accurate and admissible video evidence of any incident.
2. Reduce your insurance premiums
As the need for cameras has increased so has the technology. More advanced vehicle camera solutions are now being equipped with g-shock readers and 3G/4G sim cards.
This means they can provide real-time SMS/email alerts and instant access to the footage of detected incidents. This does not apply to SD card-based cameras.
This feature can make a big difference in speeding up the claims process. You can provide insurers with FNOL (First Notification Of Loss) and indisputable evidence of exactly what happened.
In the long run, this saves you money through avoiding insurance ‘reserves’ and legal fees.
3. Improved safety for your fleet and the public
As with any business with a fleet of vehicles, your drivers are the face of your company. Unfortunately, bad drivers mean bad business.
Furthermore, not only does it run the risk of impacting your businesses’ hard-earned reputation, but it also affects your driver’s safety.
Installing forward-facing and/or driver-facing cameras can reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring as drivers are more aware of their driving style.
Multiple recognition schemes such as London’s Direct Vision Standard, FORS, and CLOCS require cameras to maximize road visibility.
The use of professional multi-channel cameras eradicates the driver’s blind spots when linked to in-cab monitors. This ensures the safety of the driver, other vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians.
4. Save fuel & reduce wear and tear
A lesser-known benefit of vehicle camera solutions is the potential savings to your in day-to-day fleet costs.
After speaking to Transport Managers, it was clear after having cameras installed into their commercial vehicles, drivers adopted a different mindset.
The opportunity to be praised for great driving, defend themselves from claims, and having a live on-board witness creates a more conscious driver.
Mindful of their driving behavior, resulting in reduce fuel usage and less wear and tear on the vehicles.
5. Personalised Feedback and Training
When it comes to improving driver performance, camera footage of driver’s reactions can be invaluable. It creates a driver centric feedback and training approach.
Download and watch the footage with your drivers. Using the camera’s detailed g-force and accelerometer data, you can identify specific areas for improvement and create targeted incentive programs.
