We are excited to announce that Jonathan Dudley from Robertson Electric has won the August 2018 SpeedGauge Safe Driver Award!  All drivers participating in the GaugeMyFleet 90-Day safety benchmarking program who have earned a safety score above 700 and have driven at least 100 miles are eligible for this monthly drawing.  

Commenting on Jonathan Dudley’s award, Bruce Locker, owner of Robertson Electric, noted that “The GaugeMyFleet free 90-day safety benchmarking program has been great in reminding us that, even though our business is delivering top quality electric, heating, air conditioning and plumbing services, safe driving is an important part of that mission. I think it’s helped all of our employees who drive take a closer look at how they drive and where they can improve their driving habits.  Jonathan Dudley is not only an excellent electrician, thanks to the GaugeMyFleet safety scoring system, he’s proven he is a very safety-conscious driver as well.  And, as a business owner, that’s something very reassuring and worth rewarding.”

SpeedGauge’s GaugeMyFleet free 90-day safety evaluation program is offered by insurance companies to provide a safety benchmark for Agents and their clients to use to better manage driving risk and determine coverage needs and deductibles.

Dale Dunaitis Awarded CTP Designation

SpeedGauge is proud to announce that Dale Dunaitis, our Director of Safety,  has received his Certified Transportation Professional (CTP) designation from the the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) for his service and contributions to the trucking fleet community.

Dale came to SpeedGauge in November 2016 - his first job in the software industry after years of using the latest trucking technologies to do his work in fleet operations.

To be eligible for the CTP designation, individuals must have at least five years’ experience in a supervisory, managerial, or supplier fleet/transportation role, as well as industry engagement through continuing education, participation in transportation organizations, and on-the-job experience. New CTP’s must also pass a rigorous exam on the five core subjects of fleet management: finance, safety, human resources and legal issues, vehicle equipment and maintenance, and operations. 

“Dale’s knowledge and abilities as a safety professional impressed me when he was a SpeedGauge customer at Martin Transportation. That’s why I hired him,” says SpeedGauge CEO Jonathan Hubbard. “I am very proud of Dale’s dedication and the follow-through required to achieve the CTP designation. Dale has already brought these skills to bear at SpeedGauge to improve our product and service offerings. This accomplishment now means he can extend that expertise to our fleet customers.”

Announcing the SpeedGauge Safety Score

Jonathan Hubbard, CEO and Co-Founder

 

Have you ever wanted to know how your fleet’s safety performance compares to your competitors?

 

SpeedGauge is pleased to announce the beta release of SpeedGauge Safety ScoreTM, a risk-weighted score of fleet speed performance calculated on a monthly basis and provided to all SpeedGauge fleets. Log in to see you SpeedGauge Safety Score today.

 

The Safety Score uses a proprietary methodology developed by SpeedGauge to compare the behavior of hundreds of thousands of vehicles currently using the SpeedGauge Safety CenterTM. Available to all SpeedGauge users, the Safety Score compares fleets to others within the same country. More than a raw speeding percentage, the score allows for a reliable comparison between carriers of all sizes and types.

 

Where do you rank?

 

In addition to receiving a score on the familiar 350-850 point scale commonly found in financial credit scoring systems, SpeedGauge Safety Center subscribers will see a ranked comparison showing how their score compares to other Safety Center subscribers.

 

This initial beta version of the Safety Score has been released with the objective of receiving feedback and input from our Safety Center users. In particular, we are interested to know how subscribers would like to use their scores as a benchmark for improvement when compared to other like fleets. If you have a moment, please consider taking our survey to provide your feedback - it will be greatly appreciated.

 

Congratulations to those with the highest scores! And to those in need of improvement, we look forward to continuing to work with you to improve your scores and improve the safety of your fleet. For free, hands-on coaching and safety performance evaluations, contact support@speedgauge.net and watch your score improve!
