Critical Event Reporting
Proactively Manage the Behaviour of Your Drivers in Real-Time
Would you like to be able to respond to unsafe driving behaviours before they cause accidents? That is exactly what Critical Event Reporting is designed to do. This service brings you vital information when you need it the most to proactively manage your drivers.
The service is an automatic vehicle monitor that enables safety and fleet managers to manage the behaviour of drivers in real-time. By continuously monitoring fleet vehicles for critical safety-related events, the service helps you prevent accidents within your fleet before they even occur. It’s the one time eyes that aren’t actually on the road equals more time spent safely driving – reducing the accidents, repair, and risks to your customer’s important freight.

“While working late one evening, I received a CER message on my computer and on my cell phone at the same time. Through the web portal, I immediately saw where the unit that initiated the CER, which had been pretty well flatlining at 54-56 mph for an hour or more, all of a sudden the speed dropped to “0” for ½ second, bounced back to approx 30 mph, back down to “0” again, then to perhaps 5mph, and then flatlined at “0”. This whole sequence had taken maybe 5 seconds. Seeing the unit had slid to a stop, I immediately messaged my driver to check if he was ok, and ask him what he had hit. He was absolutely dumbfounded that I knew he’d been involved in some sort of incident or accident almost before he had come to a complete stop. It turned out a moose had run up onto the road, and he t-boned it at full speed. Within 10 minutes I had a recovery vehicle enroute and things turned out without highway blockages, other motorists involvement, or a driver having to depend on word of mouth to get word back 300 miles to me so I could then start a recovery mission. The CER probably saved my company 8-9 hours of a wreck sitting on the highway, and a driver left to his own defenses in sub zero weather in a “dead” power unit.”
