FMS Tech., a key global player in the telematics sector has launched a new Driver Merit System Robot (DMS Robot) to highlight the importance of road safety. The DMS Robot is meant for commercial fleets and was launched at the 2016 edition of the ADIPEC Show which was held at the Abu Dhabi convention centre from November 7 to November 11. By participating in the show, FMS Tech planned to motivate truck and heavy vehicle drivers to improve their performance on the road. It will also make it easier for managers of large fleets to monitor and manage their fleets.
The DMS Robot essentially acts as a software consultant by giving highly precise and transparent feedback on the performance of the drivers and assigning them rewards on the basis of good driving. It aligns well with FMS Tech.’s drive to enhance road safety and help fleet managers to cut costs and the time spent on managing fleets by providing them with accurate and transparent information that will help them to improve the bottom line of their business.
Commenting on the new robot, Bassam AlKassar, CEO of FMS Tech., said that with the launch of the FMS DMS Robot the company has closed all the gaps in its End-to-End solution. Transport managers will now have access to accurate information, transparency, reporting and control on their drivers and fleet of vehicles. With the FMS DMS Robot, the driver will can get feedback that will allow him to take a proactive approach rather than a post-accident approach to rectify any issues when it comes to reckless driving and road safety.
The FMS DMS Robot is designed to look like a kiosk machine or an ATM and the driver can use the machine to assess his driving performance once or twice a month. It has the capability to communicate with the driver in the language of his choice and address him by name. The DMS Robot is expected to be a gamechanger as it forms a new approach to road safety that has never been used in the case of commercial vehicles to tackle issues like reckless driving, traffic violations, high accident rates, punctuality and job completion in an appealing and warm manner.
FMS Tech will also be integrating its HID system, incorporating secure identity technology as part of its platforms. Employees and drivers will now be able to use the same RFID (HID secure card) to access their office and their vehicles. In addition to re-introducing the FMS Journey Management, the platform that automates journeys plans and manages drives easier and more efficiently, giving fleet managers a higher level of security, transparency on the fleet’s performance, managing risks and reducing costs, as well as time.
“We strive to live in peace and security. As members of the business community, it is our social responsibility to adopt what is beneficial and crucial in improving the way we live and drive; it is everyone’s responsibility, not just toward our family and our kids and friends, but to every other human being”, added Bassam AlKassar.
