Driver behaviour has a massive impact on any business that manages a fleet. How drivers conduct themselves on the road impacts your bottom line and can also affect the reputation of a company. The success of a business that utilizes a fleet is tied directly to how well the drivers perform. In most instances, the loss of business due to bad driver behaviour damaging your brand can be crippling.

Managing Driver Behaviour

It is essential for any business that manages a fleet to closely monitor driver behaviour due to its importance on the overall success of the operation. Fleet managers need to know how the drivers act behind the wheel. Guardian SEA provides the necessary tools for a fleet manager to manage driver behaviour successfully. Our advanced driver monitoring system plays an essential role in the overall success of a business.

Bad driving habits can lead to substantial losses for a company. Increased fuel costs, increased wear and tear on your vehicles leading to downtime, and even accidents are all due to bad driving behaviour. These are driver behaviours that need to be corrected.

Our platform gives fleet managers the data and the power to correct bad driving habits, significantly reduce costs for the company and avoid accidents. Accident prevention is something that any organization should focus on as this can heavily affect the image of the business, reduce insurance costs, repairs and most importantly, prevent injury and keep everyone involved safe.

Guardian SEA’s Comprehensive Fleet Management Solution

Guardian SEA’s telematic system provides real-time data on driver behaviour. Data collection happens in real-time, which includes a report. The report allows fleet managers to create solutions to address and correct the issue. This feature is beneficial to the organization and provides the driver with an opportunity to improve himself. The report generated is scored based on the number of instances recorded, such as speeding, harsh braking, idling or harsh cornering. The information provided is easy to use, allowing fleet managers to quickly pinpoint which areas of improvement a driver needs to focus on to improve. This method will significantly reduce the time a fleet manager needs to spend reviewing driver performance and allow the fleet manager to address proactively and correct driver habits that could potentially cause more severe issues in the future.

We also have an alert system in place. The alert system is beneficial as this can trigger and warn the driver if any rule set by the fleet manager has been violated, such as speeding or harsh braking. The alert system can go a long way to curb bad driver behaviour as this provides a constant reminder to the driver when they violate. The fleet manager also receives an alert with the relevant details when the infraction occurs. The alert feature on the Guardian system allows fleet managers to stay on top of things and ensure that the operation runs smoothly.


Instances of road accidents, increased operational expenses, and vehicle damage due to wear and tear are all tied to how badly the driver performs behind the wheel. For an organization that manages a fleet, this aspect of the operation needs constant monitoring to ensure that everything is operating smoothly. Traditional methods are no longer sufficient since traditional solutions are mostly a reactionary measure. Guardian SEA can give you the preventive tools to deal with issues before it becomes a problem. Adopting our system can help keep your organization running optimally and keep your drivers and your brand image safe.
