Microlise launches driver performance management app 21 May 2015

Telematics giant Microlise launched its Driver Performance Management (DPM) app at yesterday’s (20 May 2015) Microlise Transport Conference, at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

The app, which runs on Android and Apple devices, is aimed at improving drivers' involvement with telematics, and helping fleet managers to stay on top of driver and vehicle performance.

Matt Hague, executive director for product strategy at Microlise, explained that its DPM mobile app focuses drivers' attention on driving style and performance, by providing real-time and historic information, collected through Microlise telematics, and comparing the results against set criteria.

In addition to an overall grade, drivers can drill down to key performance indicators, including speeding, idling and harsh braking.

"With the DPM mobile app, drivers can access this information at any time in any location, and are not limited to being presented with reports when they arrive back at a depot or transport office," comments Hague.

In separate news, Samworth Brothers Supply Chain driver Alan Marsh was presented with the first Microlise Driver of the Year award, having won best driver in the long distance category, before being named overall winner.

Marsh beat 90,000 other drivers in the competition, which was run in conjunction with Microlise partners RHA (Road Haulage Association) and the University of Nottingham.

MAN Truck & Bus UK sponsored the awards, providing a track at the Porsche Experience Centre, attended by shortlisted drivers on the 19 May 2015.
