Driver Management Software
For small businesses that rely on vehicles to get the job done
Driver safety software keeps your operators and vehicles safer on the road.
Aggressive and dangerous driving is one of the most expensive risks to your business. For small companies, even a single “minor” accident can be a huge financial setback. And then there’s the speeding tickets, excess wear and tear on the vehicle, and fuel costs (up to 40% more).
Fleet management isn’t just vehicle tracking and maintenance—it’s driver management too. And when you can’t have eyes on all your operators at once, driver management software allows you to monitor driver behavior without stepping into a vehicle yourself. Force Fleet Tracking’s driver management system easily pays for itself by helping you nip aggressive and dangerous driving in the bud.See Pricing

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a fleet safety program?
A fleet safety program is a set of processes, rules, and checklists a business owner uses to minimize the risk of accidents and improve safety and accountability. This can include driver training requirements, vehicle inspection checklists, vehicle maintenance schedules, and more.
How can fleet safety be improved?
Fleet safety can be improved by implementing tools and technology to help encourage safe driving habits and notify business owners if any of their vehicles are experiencing minor or critical issues that could lead to accidents.
Implementing rigorous driver training programs, fleet inspection checklists, and GPS technology that monitors driving behavior and vehicle health can help business owners drastically improve the overall safety of their fleets.
What should I look for in a fleet management system?
In order to find the right fleet management system for your business, you’ll need to get specific about what you’re looking to track, how much you want to spend per vehicle, and the types of data you need to effectively manage your fleet.
When looking for a fleet management system you want to consider the following:
- Budget and contract duration (Force Fleet Tracking is just $20 per vehicle, per month with no contracts)
- Whether your vehicles are OBD-II compatible. If not, you may require a hardwire solution
- What features are most important to you
- The level of simplicity or complexity you want in your features and reports
- The GPS tracking laws in your state
What is a driver management system?
A driver management system is a software program that uses GPS tracking and other forms of detection technology to monitor a vehicle’s whereabouts and movements (and thus the driver’s location and behavior). Driver management systems can detect unsafe driving (such as excessive speeding, harsh acceleration, aggressive braking, and more), vehicle disturbances (such as hit and runs, vandalism, etc.), and motor vehicle accidents.
What is the best way to manage your drivers?
The best way to manage your drivers is to use a driver management software program that collects valuable (and legal) driver behavior data. With driver management software, you can see how your company vehicles are being operated, by which driver, where, and when. This type of data allows you to better manage drivers and have data to back up your management decisions.
For example, if one of your driver is driving aggressively (e.g. harsh braking, cornering, or accelerating), this is going to impact your vehicle’s health, increase maintenance frequencies, and potentially compromise your company’s reputation if your branded vehicles are driving recklessly. These smaller driver behaviors are almost impossible to measure (and manage) without fleet management software installed.
Why is management essential for the driver?
Management is essential for the driver because it helps keep them safe drivers. Safety is the biggest benefit to any driver when it comes to management. It’s inevitable that a company will need to have some visibility into driver performance to properly manage the business but it also means the driver (and others on the road) are kept safe and accountable.
For example, if the driver has been involved in a car accident, driver management software like Force uses Crash Detection technology to know exactly when an incident has occurred and can take the appropriate actions quickly, when every seconds counts.
How do you ensure safety of a driver?
You can ensure your drivers are safe by using driver management software with GPS technology to track the vehicle’s location and health as well as the behavior of the driver when the vehicle is in operation. This type of driver management system allows you to see when a driver is driving in an unsafe manner and potentially putting them and others at risk on the road. It also allows you to respond to accidents or incidents faster than you’d be able to without a driver management tool in place.
