According to Transport Statistics Malaysia, about 95% of road accidents involving vehicles is recorded in the year 2019 (type of vehicles involved are: lorry, van, cars, and motorcycles).
Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham mentioned, “Since May 2020, the number of accidents has been growing to an average of 738 cases daily.” The growing numbers are a concern to many, and that includes fleet business owners.
Without proper solutions, the said issue can lead to bigger disadvantages to fleet owners such as:
✔️ Rising operational costs
✔️ Increase in fraud accidents with false claims
✔️ Jeopardizing the safety and security of vehicles as well as drivers
Mobile Digital Video Recording (MDVR) or dash cam is quickly becoming an essential tool for fleet managers to overcome these issues. Let’s take a look at how KATSANA® solutions help to address your biggest concerns on making sure the safety of your vehicles.
How do I know if I need an MDVR solution?
✔️ When employees use fleet vehicles without permission
✔️ Unfortunate events always occur and you need to know why it happens
As a fleet manager, gaining greater visibility into your fleet movement or status is vital. MDVR records every minute if any unforeseen events occur.
MDVR’s best feature is, it starts recording when the ignition is on and can be configured to record any motion detected when on parked or standby mode. This feature helps in catching unauthorized use of vehicles or theft.
How do I protect my drivers from false claims?
Fraud accidents and false claims are the common problems faced by fleet managers. Therefore, evidence such as video recordings or visuals is vital to prove against the issue.
MDVR provides clear video evidence if any accidents occur, thus improve the insurance claim process and quicker claim resolutions.
How do I promote the safety of my vehicles and drivers?
3 out of 4 fleet managers choose MDVR to reduce recurring vehicle theft and accidents.
The year 2020 has recorded an average of 84 stolen vehicles daily with fleet vehicles (heavy vehicles) totaling up to 1,550 units. Over the past six months this year, fleet owners in Selangor are affected by a syndicate of stealing lorries which causes a big loss on operational cost, threatening drivers’ safety as well as missing goods.
Hence, it is important for fleet owners to take a serious countermeasure on this matter.
MDVR is best to ensure the safety and security of both drivers and vehicles. The tool is able to coach drivers with safe driving attitudes. When trips are recorded, fleet managers are able to review:
✔️ Any distracted driving during movement
