MiX Telematics announces integrated, automated journey risk management solution
Cape Town, South Africa, 15 December 2015 – MiX Telematics, a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, is proud to announce the launch of MiX Journey Management – a comprehensive electronic journey risk management solution that integrates with the company’s fleet management platform. The solution is designed for fleet operators seeking an easy and automated way to keep their drivers, passengers and cargo safe and secure, while reducing business risk related to journeys.
“MiX Journey Management integrates fully with our premium MiX Fleet Manager solution for managing driver and vehicle performance and safety. It replaces tedious paper-based journey management processes as well as the need for operators to develop their own in-house solutions,” says Catherine Lewis, Executive Vice President of Technology at MiX Telematics.
Fleet operators across diverse industries can manage their journeys from start to finish online, instead of using outdated manual alternatives that are time consuming and error-prone. “The solution’s integration with MiX Fleet Manager is an industry first, and also means customers are exposed to a host of other features to improve safety and efficiency within their business,” adds Lewis.
By implementing MiX Journey Management, operators are able to apply a proven business process involving journey requests, approvals and real-time monitoring. Features of the solution, in addition to integration, include exception-based notifications, road hazard assessment and robust reporting.
MiX Journey Management addresses journey risk exposure in a broad business sense: from the protection of drivers, passengers and cargo, to business reputation around service quality and compliance factors. The solution also takes into account the impact journeys may have on the environment and the surrounding community.
MiX Telematics supports the notion that forward-thinking operators should be questioning the need for each journey and eliminating journeys where necessary. Those journeys that go ahead – specifically those over long distances or through remote areas – then need to be risk assessed, planned and monitored to allow for immediate intervention.
