73% Success Rate for Driver Interventions
Driver monitoring and near-real-time notifications allow managers to work with individuals to solve their issues, before being notified by the state. For example, employees who have suspended licenses due to child support, a lapse in insurance coverage, or a failure to update a medical card are now identified before going out on the road. With SambaSafety, managers can see potential driver violations early – and reassign those drivers to other jobs and/or assist them in clearing up the issue.
“We’re actually doing our employees a favor,” explained Mark Clayton, director of safety at DS Services. “Once employees reach the point of disqualification by not telling us and getting pulled over, we have no choice. Now, we can flag these things and save employees from the adverse points that may eliminate them from our team.”
In addition, early notification boosts the management team’s morale. “Branch managers want to know about issues sooner rather than later because it affects them directly,” Gay adds. “They appreciate the fact that they can get things taken care of, so everyone has a smooth day – drivers get on the road, customers are served, and we make money. Now that’s good for everyone.”
